Palo Alto Networks and Singtel Team Up to Help Organizations Prevent Cyber Breaches in Asia Pacific with New Managed Security Service

New Singtel Advanced Threat Prevention Service to be Initiated in Singtel's Advanced Security Operation Centre in Singapore

SINGAPORE, Sept. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE: PANW), the next-generation security company, and Singapore Telecommunications Ltd. (Singtel) today announced availability of the Singtel Managed Advanced Threat Prevention (ATP), a unique managed security service that harnesses the expertise of Singtel Managed Security Service (MSS) and the technology of Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform to protect organizations against sophisticated cyberthreats.

This Singtel service aims to keep cyberthreats at bay by monitoring, isolating and preventing any suspicious applications from breaching an organization's networks or endpoint devices.  In addition, the ATP's advance threat intelligence capability provides organizations with insights on cyberthreats, allowing them to take necessary security measures.

This collaborative effort expands Palo Alto Networks existing activities with Singtel's managed security services business unit, Trustwave, to bring next-generation managed security services to global multi-national businesses and government agencies.

The Singtel MSS provides organizations with real-time, round-the-clock managed security services through Singtel's global network of eight Security Operations Centres (SOCs). As the SOCs are integrated with Singtel Global Threat Intelligence, they are constantly updated with information from Trustwave's sensors and SpiderLabs malware research laboratory as well as Singtel's extensive network of security intelligence partners.  By complementing the Singtel Global Threat Intelligence with Palo Alto Networks AutoFocus™ threat intelligence, Singtel MSS can provide even faster response to cyberattacks. 

The Managed ATP operates on the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform, comprising Next-Generation Firewall, Threat Intelligence Cloud and Advanced Endpoint Protection. This platform protects organizations by allowing safe applications to pass through networks, cloud and endpoint devices but blocks both known as well as unknown threats and suspicious applications. 

In Singapore, the Managed ATP service is delivered through Singtel's Singapore Advanced Security Operations Centre (ASOC), which monitors advanced cyberthreats globally and helps protect organizations against sophisticated malicious cyberattacks. Singtel's cyber security expertise is bolstered by 2,000 security professionals worldwide, including its elite SpiderLabs cyber response team.

Mr. Bill Chang, Chief Executive Officer, Group Enterprise at Singtel said, "As a leading global Managed Security Services Provider, we are committed to strengthening our capabilities to protect organizations against sophisticated, evolving cyberthreats. Through our collaboration with Palo Alto Networks, we have developed an innovative cyber security service which takes a holistic and preventive approach towards cyberthreats."

"Together with our Trustwave managed security service, the trained cyber security experts at our Advanced Security Operations Centre can forestall cyberattacks and use the information of any neutralized malware to update our global threat intelligence to benefit other regions. In the long run, our Managed Security Service will strengthen organizations' cyber defense and reinforce Singapore as a safe and vibrant business hub," he added.

"We are delighted to join forces with Singtel – one of Asia Pacific's most respected, progressive and leading managed security services providers – to deliver unparalleled next-generation, breach-prevention security capabilities to its customers," said Mr. Mark McLaughlin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Palo Alto Networks. "Our collaboration gives organizations the peace of mind to implement key technology initiatives within their cloud and mobile networks and maintain complete visibility and control as their most valued data assets and critical control systems will be protected."
