New York, USA and Bangalore, India – December 15, 2021: Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a leading global information technology, consulting and business process services company, announced that it has expanded its portfolio of end-to-end solutions delivered on Microsoft’s cybersecurity stack. Wipro’s end-to-end security solutions and services now include two of Microsoft’s advanced specializations in Security - Identity and Access Management, and Threat Protection.
Per Wipro’s State of Cybersecurity Report 2020, 39 percent of organizations faced cybersecurity breaches in the three years preceding the study and in 67 percent of all attacks recorded, attackers were after personally identifiable information. This exemplifies the importance of cybersecurity in digital trust and beyond.
The Identity and Access Management advanced specialization is awarded to organizations demonstrating deep knowledge, extensive expertise, and proven experience deploying Microsoft Identity workloads with Azure Active Directory. Through this, businesses can enable seamless, scalable and secure access to enterprise hybrid and cloud applications for employees, partners and consumers. Similarly, organizations deploying Microsoft Threat Protection, Microsoft Cloud App Security, or Azure Sentinel workloads can differentiate their capabilities with the Threat Protection advanced specialization. This enables organizations to secure enterprise identities, devices and apps from advanced threats across on-premise and multi-cloud environments.
