NTT and Symantec offer WSaaS through partners

1 min read Cybersecurity
NTT Security is ready to deliver its first unified service in partnership with Symantec Corporation. NTT Security, which announced its intention to enter into a strategic partnership in April, will integrate Symantec’s cloud based security service with NTT Security’s enhanced threat detection, providing Web Security as a Service (WSaaS).

WSaaS will be the first service offered through the partnership program, which was set up to bolster web security services to clients across the cloud, mobile and on-premise, and will be delivered as part of NTT Security’s Global Managed Security Services. NTT Security has been developing various technologies to provide more sophisticated cloud based security services as part of the program.

The new service will provide real-time threat intelligence, analysis and protection, together with the management and security monitoring of cloud-based web security solutions. It has been designed by NTT Security and Symantec to reduce overall security risk, minimise the impact of security threats, and help clients meet compliance requirements. The service offloads the burden of real-time network and device monitoring, advanced security analysis and security management, allowing clients to focus on the timely delivery of higher quality secure IT services for their organisation.

Kazu Yozawa, Chief Technology Officer at NTT Security commented: “The unified service is a vital step towards reducing security complexity and accelerating our clients’ digital transformation for their cloud journey. WSaaS delivers convenient cloud based security services with advanced threat detection and response. The advantages of cloud based security services are easy and enable swift deployment of secured internet access. The same controls and security policies can be applied to distributed locations covering all aspects of today’s enterprise businesses from cloud and mobile through to on-premise.”

Greg Clark, Symantec CEO commented: “The cloud presents tremendous opportunity for organisations, but also introduces a whole new set of security and compliance risks. Symantec has invested heavily in innovations and integrations of CASB, network security proxies and endpoint solutions to solve these cloud generation challenges. We are very proud to be partnering with NTT Security to deliver these innovations to our joint customers.”
