Taylor was introduced to the KHIPU Networks eXtended Managed Detection and Response (XMDR) service at a security event. He liked what he saw. ‘We chose KHIPU owing to their experience within the education sector and ability to monitor, detect, and respond to threats across our entire multicampus estate—not just the endpoint,’ he says.
The KHIPU XMDR service comprises a comprehensive, connected Palo Alto Networks portfolio, as ML-Powered NGFWs are embedded within the KHIPU XMDR service to deliver intelligent and proactive network security. Simple to configure and easy to use, they can inspect a file while it’s being downloaded and block it instantly if it is malicious without having to access offline tools. This way, the time from visibility to prevention is near zero.
The NGFWs also incorporate Palo Alto Networks Cloud-Delivered Security Services (CDSS):
- Threat Prevention: Provides TEC Partnership with comprehensive prevention of known exploits, malware, command and control, and custom rules.
- URL Filtering: Prevents access to known and new malicious websites before they can be accessed by users.
- GlobalProtect™: Protects the hybrid education staff and students by understanding application use and associating traffic with users and devices.
Cortex® XDR™ is the backbone of endpoint protection, collecting data from more than 3,100 endpoints, the network, cloud, and third-party data resources for extended and comprehensive visibility. Next-generation antivirus blocks malware, ransomware, exploits, and fileless attacks. And as part of the XMDR service, KHIPU can pinpoint attacks with AI-driven analytics and coordinate response.
Cortex XSOAR automates security workflows in the SOC for a more agile response to alerts. And Cortex Data Lake runs AI and ML to continually learn from new data sources to evolve the Partnership’s defense.
