Telia Cygate is the first company in the Nordic countries to achieve the Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR Managed Detection and Response (MDR) partnership.

With the partnership, Telia Cygate is able to offer its customers more comprehensive advanced security services for endpoint protection and threat management.

“Endpoint detection is a key part of a modern security threat protection solution. In addition to advanced control capabilities, we also need an advanced ability to detect endpoint events”, says Sami Knuutinen, Business Manager responsible for Telia Cygate's SOC services.

Cortex XDR is a security solution developed by Palo Alto Networks that enables unprecedented wide visibility on top of blocking capabilities to detect threats from the network, enpoints and the cloud. Investigation, response, and corrective action for security threats are handled in the Cortex XDR solution from a single console view, which enhances the handling of security incidents. Cortex XDR utilizes several different detection technologies and machine learning to deal with security threats.

Telia Cygate has been managing security incidents and incidents for a number of customers with the SOC service package for several years, and with the Palo Alto Networks Cortex MDR partnership, the ability to detect, prevent, and investigate security incidents is further enhanced.

“Telia Cygate's focus and commitment to the continuous development of information security services is a significant advantage for our common customers. Utilizing modern smart technology in competent hands means effective business security and high customer satisfaction for our customers. The Cortex MDR partnership now achieved by Telia Cygate is once again a great example of this", says Juha Launonen, Channel Manager at Palo Alto Networks.

"Telia Cygate is a long-term partner of Palo Alto Networks, and the MDR partnership we have now achieved is an excellent addition to our SOC service package, through which we are able to offer our customers even more comprehensive security services", says Sami Ropponen, Senior Manager, Security Services at Telia Cygate.
