HCL positioned as a Leader in Avasant’s Cybersecurity Services RadarView™ 2020

The introduction of built-in AI/ML tools and advanced analytics not only improves threat detection and incident response time but also reduces manual processes and false alarms. The increased security awareness is pushing enterprises to take proactive measures for robust governance, risk management, and compliance. Avasant evaluated 41 providers using a rigorous methodology across 3 key dimensions: practice maturity, partnership ecosystem, and investments and innovations. Of the 41, 28 are recognized as having brought the most value to the market over the last 12 months.

HCL Technologies has emerged as a leader in this assessment.

As per Avasant, “Widespread adoption of SaaS, and large-scale deployment of IoT enabled devices, is shifting the focus of enterprise cybersecurity teams from data protection to identity and access management.

Based on our assessment, HCL has invested significantly to address this shift and is now very well placed to support enterprises during the transition. Amongst others, two significant initiatives have helped HCL in this regard - the establishment of the Security of Things practice, and the development of the borderless cloud security framework. Both of these are fundamental pillars in securing the complex enterprise IT environments that have emerged with connected devices and hybrid multi-cloud approaches. HCL also has the ability to offer Broadcom CA software products, including identity and access management, through their recent preferred services partnership with Broadcom, builds to their competitive advantage. HCL is also focusing on technical skill development and regional development initiatives with local governing and trade bodies.

Given its focus and continued investment in this critical space, it is no surprise that HCL has emerged as a Leader in Avasant’s Cybersecurity Services 2020 RadarViewTM.”
