HCL and Symantec expand global strategic partnership
Partnership to address Cloud Security, Cyber Threats and Forensics
Noida, India, February 22, 2016: HCL Technologies (HCL) and Symantec today announced their plan to expand their current partnership to help enterprises in areas of Cloud Security, Cyber Threats and Forensic Solutions. HCL and Symantec aim to help enterprises better meet their information and risk management needs by building a cyber-resilient service that safeguards them from targeted attacks and persistent threats.
The emergence of sophisticated security threats has resulted in the need for managed security services that can protect organizations and their assets round-the-clock. According to the Cyberthreat Defense Report 2015, 70 percent of respondents’ networks had been breached in 2014 — up from 62 percent in 2013 — of which, more than 20 percent had been breached six times or more. A data breach can have serious consequences, including erosion of brand reputation and loss of shareholder value. Today, as high as 60% of breaches take more than 90 days to be discovered, thus posing a serious threat to organizations.
“As 21st Century enterprises adopt digitization in today’s hyper-competitive world, a need for new solutions has emerged in order to secure businesses in the digital world. We are seeing movement of critical workloads to cloud and clients expect enterprise grade security aligned with it,” said Kalyan Kumar, Senior Vice President & Chief Technologist – ITO, HCL Technologies. “Working with Symantec, we have transformed our security portfolio to provide customers with comprehensive capabilities against cyber-threats and cyber-attacks with products like Advanced Threat Protection, Data Security and Cloud Security solutions from the Symantec portfolio.”
