Deloitte, Palo Alto Form Alliance to Support Shared Customers
Deloitte announced on Wednesday that it has formed a strategic alliance with Palo Alto Networks to deliver integrated, end-to-end zero trust and multi-cloud cybersecurity solutions to their mutual enterprise and government customers. The New York-based consulting company said the teaming effort delivers broad solutions designed to help customers simplify complex security infrastructures.
Migration to the cloud and the need to expand beyond perimeter-based security models to protect applications, data, networks and devices for distributed workforces are basic components of the digital transformation process that many organizations are pursuing today. They will allow organizations to increase speed and agility, enabling them to protect their most important digital initiatives and realize the full value of their cybersecurity investments, the consulting company said.
Deloitte and Palo Alto Networks have jointly developed solutions that will be delivered to mutual customers via zero trust and cloud security orchestration automation and response services, it was explained.
Deloitte said Friday that the alliance combines its risk and change management capabilities with Palo Alto Networks’ cybersecurity platform technologies, with an initial focus on serving the public sector, critical infrastructure, financial services, health care, life sciences, telecommunications and media industries.
Prem Iyer, Palo Alto’s vice president of ecosystems – global systems integrators, said the companies are well-equipped to address their shared customers’ emerging needs. He said Deloitte has deep experience supporting major digital transformations, while Palo Alto Networks’ integrated cybersecurity platform of network, cloud and threat capabilities addresses the attack surface holistically.
Meanwhile, Kieran Norton, Deloitte’s risk and financial advisory infrastructure solution leader, said organization-wide digital transformation demands highly coordinated, strategic and holistic change management to realize success. He urged companies to take a proactive approach to cyber risk management by embedding security into the fabric of digital initiatives.
