Partnership to Boost Wipro’s Global Prevention, Detection and Response Capabilities
New York, USA and Bangalore, India – September 07, 2021: Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a leading global information technology, consulting and business process services company, announced a partnership with Securonix, a Gartner Magic Quadrant Leader SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) vendor, and provider of the Securonix Security Operations & Analytics Platform. The partnership brings together Securonix’s cloud-first SIEM, analytics-driven detection and automated response tools with Wipro’s global reach and cybersecurity intelligence capabilities to provide organizations with improved governance and security threat protection.
Cybersecurity today spans several niches including 24/7 security monitoring, incident response and digital forensics, security orchestration and automation, security data lakes, threat intelligence, vulnerability management, host and endpoint security, application security and network security, among others. Managed security services can enable CISO’s (Chief Information Security Officers) and Cyber Operations teams navigate challenges faced in these areas and beyond.
As an MSSP (Managed Security Service Provider) in the Securonix FUEL Partner Program, Wipro joins other global service providers in partnering Securonix to bolster their managed security offerings. Augmented with Securonix Jupiter, Securonix’s end-to-end security operations platform delivers enhanced detection and response, improved user experience, and optimized cost and performance.
Tony Buffomante, Senior Vice President and Global Head, Cybersecurity and Risk Services, Wipro Limited said, “One of the largest risks to enterprises today is the lack of trained, experienced cybersecurity professionals. Wipro brings together best-in-class technology and people to solve cybersecurity issues and strengthen businesses’ overall security posture. Our partnership with Securonix -- a SIEM platform that’s trusted by half of the Fortune 500 -- is playing a key role in Wipro managed security services and underscores the larger industry need for real-time analytics combined with a world-class detection and incident response platform.”
“Wipro is recognized as a global leader in cutting edge business solutions. Its decision to partner with Securonix to enhance enterprise threat prevention, detection and response further validates the strength of our platform following our inclusion as a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for SIEM and 5-Star rating from CRN in its 2021 Partner Program Guide. As we continue an aggressive investment strategy in India, Wipro will serve as a key partner enabling us to deliver the technologies and services organizations in the region need to succeed in combatting threats to their key infrastructure and cloud deployments,” said Sachin Nayyar, CEO, Securonix.
“Securonix’s tremendous success and growth this past year has stemmed from investments with our partners. Our collaboration with Wipro and expanding partner network are enabling us to help more businesses solve today’s advanced security threats by providing a unique partnership between technology and people,” said David Wagner, Vice President, Global MSSPs & Systems Integrators, Securonix.
Through the partnership with Securonix, Wipro aims to improve businesses’ cyber organizational effectiveness, resiliency, and achieve a cost effective positive security posture. The services provided are backed by Security Operations Center (SOC) best practices, regulatory and compliance requirements, as well as cyber-risk advisory and assurance. These SOC services that empower organizational resilience can be delivered from Wipro’s global Cyber Defense Centers (CDCs), offshore or onsite operation and development centers (ODC), client SOC / CDC premises or through a hybrid model.
