- The aim is to provide Telefónica’s B2B customers with Advanced Managed Email Monitoring and Protection Services supported by Proofpoint technology that will complement the Managed Security Services Portfolio by Telefónica SOCs.
Madrid, February 14, 2019 - ElevenPaths, Telefónica Cybersecurity Unit, specialized in development of innovative security solutions, today announced an alliance with Proofpoint, so as to offer Telefonica’s B2B customers with leading email security services. The Framework Agreement seeks to strengthen their joint email protection offering, focused on delivering advanced managed services to their B2B customers.
The solution has been designed not only to protect the email but also data and brands against advanced threats and compliance risks. This solution is built on the cloud and leverages one of the world’s most advanced intelligence platforms, helping to effectively detect and block targeted attacks and quickly respond to suspicious behaviors.
Clean Email MSS, part of Telefonica’s Email Protection offering, is a managed security service module that offers Telefónica B2B customers a wide range of completely integrated email security solutions, that will help them to comply with security and privacy regulations, such as GDPR, and securely store customers email data.
“We are excited to partner with leading security technology provider, Proofpoint, which will enable our clients to enjoy world-class protection through a new addition in our managed services portfolio” said said Pedro Pablo Pérez, CEO of ElevenPaths and Global VP of Security Services in Telefónica.. “A managed service needs to combine operational excellence such as that afforded by Telefónica SOCs with best-of-breed technology like Proofpoint”.
Proofpoint, a leading next-generation security and compliance company, has been recognized as a leader in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Security Awareness Computer-Based Training, as well as a leader in the Secure Email Gateways Category.
“Threat actors now increasingly target people within organizations rather than systems or infrastructure. To both understand how their organizations are being targeted and to combat the threats effectively, security teams must shift to a people-centric approach”, said Ryan Kalember, senior vice president of Cybersecurity Strategy for Proofpoint. “Proofpoint is the first company to integrate a people-centric view into its security platform to easily identify vulnerable users and create a tailored security approach to best protect each individual user. Our partnership with ElevenPaths will help us deliver first class protection to meet the needs of enterprises facing today’s fast-evolving threat landscape.”
