CyberArk and Telefónica Tech to deliver SaaS-based cyber solutions

CyberArk and Telefónica Tech are teaming up to deliver an expanded portfolio of SaaS-based cybersecurity solutions that prioritise a security-first approach to protecting against identity-driven risk, designed to provide customers the benefit of being able to secure access for all human and machine identities without sacrificing business agility.

As part of this agreement, both Telefónica B2B customers as well as Telefónica telecommunications operators will have access to a new set of innovative cyber security offerings, built on the CyberArk Identity Security Platform.

Cybercriminals are regularly able to exploit gaps in network perimeters and negatively impact businesses by compromising both user and machine identities.

In response, organisations are deploying increasingly complex enterprise networks in order to enable remote work and accelerate digital transformation. As a result, traditional perimeter-based approaches to security are no longer sufficient – there are simply too many critical credentials, secrets and identities to manage without a best-in-class identity security solution.

The CyberArk Identity Security Platform is centred on privileged access management and is designed to deliver a security-first approach to authentication, authorisation, access and audit, in an integrated, seamless manner helping to ensure protection at every step in the identity security lifecycle with a frictionless user experience.

According to Alberto Sempere, cyber security product and services director at Telefónica Tech, organisations are struggling to adapt their corporate security in the post-pandemic scenario.

"To cope with this changing situation, Telefónica Tech aims to address this need with market-leading security management services, based not only in Telefónica’s SOC capabilities, but also via establishing alliances with the most advanced technology providers.”

“For this reason, Telefónica Tech is building out its identity security offering with CyberArk as its foundation, making the entire CyberArk Identity Security Platform available as a managed services provision to Telefónica Tech customers around the world,” Sempere said.

Telefónica Tech aims to offer the CyberArk platform as a managed service, addressing the identity security needs of customers from large enterprises to SMBs in multiple countries including Brazil, Germany, Spain, the UK and the USA.

"User credentials and machine secrets have become the vector of choice for attackers as they seek to compromise privileged data and assets at organisations across all verticals," added Chris Moore, vice-president for global channels at CyberArk.

“Telefónica Tech is a leading global managed service provider, and we are delighted to partner with them as an integral part of its managed cyber services portfolio."

"Customers will benefit from a proactive identity security-centred approach to mitigating cyber risk,” Moore said.
