TELUS launches new cloud-delivered cybersecurity service for Canadian businesses

The new TELUS Managed Cloud Security service, powered by Palo Alto Networks, helps Canadian organizations securely access data and applications from anywhere 

 

Vancouver – TELUS today announced the launch of its Managed Cloud Security service, providing security to users whether at the office, at home, or on the go. The innovative service supports an integrated cybersecurity strategy with unified controls and complete visibility across the customers’ infrastructure.

 

The security perimeter has expanded, making it more challenging than ever to secure data using traditional methods. With an accelerated transition to cloud-based solutions, as well as a hybrid work environment, cybersecurity solutions must adapt to meet an organization's evolving needs. Built in collaboration with global cybersecurity leader Palo Alto Networks, TELUS Managed Cloud Security offers a comprehensive way to secure data wherever customers do business today.

 

“Canadian organizations are looking for modern ways to secure their hybrid workplace,” said Carey Frey, Chief Security Officer & Vice President, TELUS Security. “The TELUS Managed Cloud Security service is a fully cloud-delivered solution, built on Palo Alto Networks’ Prisma Access technology. With our service, organizations gain the ability to create and enforce a consistent security posture no matter where their users are working from. As the largest Palo Alto Networks service provider in Canada, we look forward to continuing our decade-long partnership, supporting Canadian organizations and their cybersecurity journey.”

 

“We’re delighted to collaborate with TELUS, which has a substantial role in providing innovative, reliable and secure connectivity to their customers across the globe. By leveraging Prisma Access, TELUS provides a comprehensive security service through a single, integrated, cloud-delivered platform that keeps TELUS customers secure, no matter where they do business and without any compromise of performance or user experience,” says Emma Carpenter, VP of Global Service Providers, Palo Alto Networks.
