Hong Kong, 28 March 2019 -- Palo Alto Networks (NYSE: PANW), the global cybersecurity leader, and HKT, Hong Kong’s premier telecommunications service provider, today jointly announced the launch of Endpoint Threat Protection Service by Threat Management Services. The new online defensive service utilizes the technology of Palo Alto Networks Traps™ for endpoint protection and response to protect organizations in Hong Kong against sophisticated cyberthreats. 


Enterprises in Hong Kong now have access to advanced endpoint protection technologies with 24/7 local security operations centre support.


Endpoint Threat Protection Service by Threat Management Services adopted Palo Alto Networks Traps to stop malware, exploits and ransomware by determining techniques and behaviours. This prevents the launch of malicious executable files; dynamic link libraries, or DLLs; and Office files with multiple methods of prevention, helping reduce the attack surface and increase the accuracy of malware prevention.


The service is supported by HKT’s locally based, certified professionals at the company’s next-generation security operations centre, which offers 24/7 proactive monitoring. The real-time, round-the-clock managed security services will enable enterprises to stay secure. It will also help those with ‘bring your own device’ policies to minimize security risks.


“The threat landscape is constantly evolving with sophistication that bypasses traditional, and usually outdated, endpoint protection. We are delighted to collaborate with HKT – the leading telecommunication service provider in Hong Kong – to help organizations detect, protect, and respond to sophisticated attacks, using high degrees of automation based on machine learning and AI techniques on data collected from the endpoints, network, and the cloud,” said Wickie Fung, general manager, Hong Kong and Macau, Palo Alto Networks.


Available today, Endpoint Threat Protection Service by Threat Management Services is provided in two levels: Basic and Plus. Both levels include deployment, 24/7 support by global certified security experts, and a monthly report. The Plus option enables subscribers to enjoy intelligence-driven forensic investigations, threat hunting and analytics.
