Vodafone NZ has partnered with cybersecurity provider CrowdStike to bring a new cloud-based endpoint cybersecurity offering to business customers.

Vodafone Secure Endpoint, powered by CrowdStrike, aims to help organizations prevent and detect cyber attacks such as malware, ransomware, data theft and other sophisticated attacks.

“We partner with CrowdStrike as they are globally recognized for next-generation endpoint protection, threat intelligence and incident response services,” said Glenn Johnstone, ICT manager at Vodafone NZ.

“Vodafone Secure Endpoint fills a gap in the New Zealand market in intuitive yet effective cloud-native endpoint security and we already have a number of customers using the solution to help protect their customers and their operations. . ”

According to the phone company, the platform is designed with a unique, lightweight agent architecture that leverages cloud-scale artificial intelligence (AI) and provides real-time protection, detection and response in enterprise-wide, preventing attacks on endpoints on or off the network. .

Vodafone said the new product will complement existing measures it has put in place to protect itself and its customers against security breaches. These include Vodafone’s Cyber ​​Defense Center (CDC), as well as its Managed Security Oversight Service, which is closely linked to Vodafone’s Global Security Operations facilities, to ensure easy access to valuable information. on threats.

Waste Management New Zealand Limited is one of the local businesses that have already registered to use the new service.

“The increased visibility and actionable insights have made it an essential solution for incident response and ICT operations,” he added.

In April, Vodafone NZ said it has followed the contact center’s technology partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) that it entered into last year with a new accreditation to provide specialist expertise in the areas of migration and operations. of contact centers, as well as best practices on how to deploy solutions seamlessly.

In July of last year, the phone company announced it would launch a new contact center solution running on AWS as disruptions related to COVID-19 accelerated demand for flexible cloud-based services. Vodafone Connect, as the offering is called, was designed to support organizations with customer contact and engagement, create personalized customer experiences and reduce costs.

Vodafone Connect offered a complete, customizable and locally supported solution based on AWS’s cloud contact center platform, Amazon Connect.

The phone company has also been accepted into the Amazon Connect service delivery program, claiming to be the first company in the country and one of five AWS partners in Australasia to achieve the status and associated authorization.
