Vodafone NZ announced the launch of its new cloud-delivered security platform powered by Palo Alto Networks for remote work security.
Vodafone Secure Access aims to ensure a secure remote working environment for businesses. It is built on Palo Alto’s Prisma Access platform and uses advanced threat protection technology to safeguard applications and data across corporate, cloud and home networks.
Auckland region is still under a strict lockdown and most people are working remotely. Remote work is expected to continue which necessitates the usage of a remote work security tool.
“Businesses are increasingly reliant on technology and having strong cybersecurity defences in place is not a nice-to-have, but a must-have. Recent hacks have thrust cybersecurity awareness into the mainstream, with directors and business leaders realising how important it is to have a remarkable security partner. We’re thrilled to be working with Palo Alto Networks to help organisations around Aotearoa install some of the best cybersecurity products available globally. Palo Alto Networks is a clear differentiator and market disruptor in this space, creating world-leading cybersecurity products that allow our customers to secure their business data, applications, locations and hybrid workforce.”
Lindsay Zwart, Vodafone NZ chief enterprise officer
Zero trust network access is integrated into the solution that limits users’ access. They can only use authorised applications and data after verifying their identity. Vodafone Secure Access is also a core capability that enables businesses to move to a secure access service edge (SASE) architecture.
“Cybercrime is borderless, so New Zealand organisations need a borderless cyber-protection plan. We’re delighted to be partnering with Vodafone to provide business customers with the benefits from a scalable way of enabling secure remote access for every user at any location. As we continue to have Kiwis working from home, our cloud-delivered security platform will help businesses navigate hybrid workforces with confidence. The partnership will also enable the protection of more local customers from global threats.”
Misti Landtroop, Palo Alto Networks managing director for New Zealand
