Cybersecurity company Palo Alto Networks and PwC expanding the partnership to boost cybersecurity defenses. The duo’s new offering combines PwC‘s MDR service, Managed Cyber Defence and Palo Alto Network’s Cortex XDR. The users can benefit from managed threat hunting, protection, detection, and response service from anywhere, globally.
Global threat intelligence
PwC’s global threat intelligence, thousands of hours of incident response expertise, and advisory services with Cortex XDR, the industry’s first fully-integrated detection and response platform. It allows security teams to significantly reduce attack dwell time, down to minutes, and manual day-to-day security operations workloads by up to 90%. Colin Slater, Cybersecurity Partner, PwC UK, said,
“Our unique market insight and trusted relationships with our clients makes us best placed to advise on their cyber challenges. Using this in-depth knowledge, we have meticulously created a service offering to address our clients’ pain points. We are excited to work with Palo Alto Networks as the market demands new ways to do detection and response. COVID-19 has spurred a move to remote work at a scale that has left many businesses more vulnerable than ever to cyberattacks because they are less able to respond and recover remotely. PwC’s cybersecurity team has responded to several major incursions from nation-state threat groups and mitigated cyber breaches caused by vulnerabilities introduced through transitions to remote work at scale. Preventing these attacks is a core element of the PwC and Palo Alto Networks approach.”
