Available with immediate effect: Deloitte Cyber to enhance endpoint services with Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR

Publish Date: 25 January 2021

Deloitte Cyber is providing Hong Kong organisations with rapid replacement services for their Symantec endpoint capability, including Managed Services, with Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR products.

Recognizing the shift in Symantec's go-to-market strategy, post Broadcom acquisition, to service all but 2000 of its most profitable customers, Deloitte Cyber and Palo Alto Networks are providing Hong Kong businesses with support to continue operating in a secure, vigilant and resilient manner. This commitment is underlined by the Hong Kong based Deloitte Cyber Intelligence Center (CIC) that provides managed security services to both local Hong Kong and international clients who are currently rely on Symantec endpoint technology or transitioning off it.

This service commences with a current-state assessment of the existing Symantec environment by Deloitte with support from Palo Alto Network architects to ensure the operating environment is protected against the latest threats and sophisticated attacks that can bypass traditional endpoint protection. By utilizing Deloitte's Managed Endpoint Detection and Response Service, powered by Cortex XDR, customers can continue to focus on their business operations and growth whilst ensuring that actionable risk mitigation controls are in place to actively detect intrusion and remediate vulnerabilities in real time on the end-point.

"The perimeter created to protect the organization is constantly being re-architected and increasingly virtualised. With the rise of cloud services and consumption of digital platforms the end-user is now the weakest link, and this requires state-of-the art endpoint security protection and response capabilities" said Deloitte Cyber Cloud Hong Kong Leader Puneet Kukreja.

"Cortex XDR is the industry’s only detection and response platform that runs on fully integrated endpoint, network and cloud data. Since introducing Cortex XDR, we’ve enabled organizations to reduce alert volumes by 50X and speed investigation time by 8X, ultimately filtering out the noise and allowing analysts to focus on the most critical threats. Together with Deloitte's Managed Detection Response Service customers can gain the best values and low risk adoption” said Bryan Yeung, Director for Channel Sales, Greater China, Palo Alto Networks
