Symantec, NTT Security partner
Collaboration aims to strengthen cyber security initiatives as the foundation for digital transformation
Platform security behemoth Symantec Corp and NTT Security, a specialised security company of NTT Group, have entered into a strategic partnership to bolster web security services offerings to customers across the cloud, mobile and on-premises.
By planning to bring together Symantec's Cloud-Delivered Web Security Services and Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) technologies, key elements of the Symantec Integrated Cyber Defence Platform, with NTT Security's threat detection and advanced analytics capabilities, the companies intend to enhance security services and provide customers flexibility and efficiency in their digital transformation journey.
Greg Clark, CEO at Symantec said: "Security is an integral part of digital transformation and our planned partnership with NTT Security will help provide protection for customers throughout their journey. By combining our Integrated Cyber Defence Platform with NTT Security's leading solutions, we are aiming to ensure that businesses can respond to evolving threats and secure their data wherever it lives."
Jun Sawada, CEO, NTT Security, added that: "Our strategic partnership with Symantec will greatly enhance the level of advanced web security services both parties can deliver, and I expect this partnership to expand to other areas such as endpoint and the entire cloud-based security area."
Sawada said NTT Security offers through operating companies Dimension Data, NTT Communications and NTT DATA, a wide portfolio of cyber security consulting, system integration and support services, depending on the maturity level and specific requirements from clients.
According to the two companies, the collaboration could see both parties sharing threat telemetry information to provide a more sophisticated security service suite. The new services will plan to provide a comprehensive set of in-depth application controls designed to manage the increasing use of social and business web applications and enhance compliance and cyber security for customers by consistently enforcing acceptable use policies.
