CITIC Telecom CPC Launches new TrustCSI(TM) EDR Service – Check Point’s First Greater China Managed Service Partner Powered Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) Solution

CITIC Telecom International CPC Limited (“CITIC Telecom CPC”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of CITIC Telecom International Holdings Limited (SEHK: 1883), is partnering with Check Point Software Technologies (NASDAQ: CHKP), a leading provider of cyber security solutions globally, to launch TrustCSI(TM) EDR (Endpoint Detection & Response) Service.

Ivan Chin, General Manager, Hong Kong Sales at CITIC Telecom International CPC Limited (left) and Kev Lau,
Cyber Security Evangelist, Office of the CTO at Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. announce the partnership and the launch of the new TrustCSI(TM) EDR Service.

Traditional endpoint security doesn’t stop all known attacks. CITIC Telecom CPC’s managed endpoint security solution provides comprehensive endpoint protection at the highest security level, crucial to avoid security breaches and data compromise. TrustCSI(TM) EDR solution is built to protect organizations and the remote workforce from today’s complex threat landscape, provides visibility, protection, detection and proactive responses to cyber threats.

“Endpoints continue to be one of the most vulnerable parts in organization’s infrastructure. To collaborate with Check Point, leading provider of cyber security, we can deploy a complete managed endpoint security suite, combines the highest-rated data security and threat intelligence, with secure remote communications at complex access gateways.” said Taylor Lam, Chief Strategy Officer at CITIC Telecom CPC. “With quick cyber threat detection and response at all endpoints, enterprises can also prevent costly data security breaches.”

Safeguard your Endpoints and Data
As a complete endpoint security service offering, the new TrustCSI(TM) EDR Service proactively protects enterprises from cyber threats across all current and new endpoint devices. It uses automatic remediation to close exposed security gaps and strengthen security in real-time as enterprises deploy more remote offices and expand their hybrid workforces. The service rapidly minimises endpoint threats such as phishing, ransomware, and malware by working closely with Check Point Software. It also gives enterprise system administrators better visibility on the overall security status of their servers and endpoints.

“Cyberattacks today have the capability to bring down a business’s entire operations and cost it millions of dollars and its reputation. With most enterprises working remotely, it is important for endpoints throughout the organisation to remain protected and secure. TrustCSI(TM) EDR Service detects and prevents cyber threats automatically, so that enterprises can take a proactive approach to cybersecurity, rather than remediate the problem after the attack has happened, saving enterprises millions of dollars and downtime,” said Harry Wong, Director of Channel Business, Greater China, Check Point Software Technologies.

Key benefits include:

— Prevents Attacks Before They Damage: Leveraging Next Generation Anti-Virus (NGAV), anti-malware, anti-phishing, sandboxing, content disarm, and reconstruction technologies, the service helps enterprises proactively stop attacks before any damage is done.

— Enables Runtime Detection and Protection: With behavioural analysis, anti-ransomware, anti-exploit, and other technologies always on standby, enterprises can remediate various attack types, including ransomware, malware, and file-less attacks, more effectively. Furthermore, the full automated remediation triggers even in offline mode.

— Improves Attack Investigation and Response: Detailed forensics reports are autogenerated to help system administrators and incident response teams analyse system health. In addition, robust attack diagnostics offer important visibility to an attack, allowing incident response teams to conduct triage and resolve attacks more effectively.

— Increases Remediation Times with Automation: By automatically performing certain incident response activities based upon predefined rules, it can block or rapidly remediate specific incidents and reduce the workload on incident response teams.

— 24×7 SOC Managed and Monitoring Services: CITIC Telecom CPC security experts provide round-the-clock monitoring and managed services to detect and prevent endpoint security attacks with accurate and timely alerts

The TrustCSI(TM) EDR service strengthens CITIC Telecom CPC’s TrustCSI(TM) Threat Detection and Response Service portfolio. Empowered by advanced SIEM technology, the portfolio offers pervasive threat detection monitoring across the entire enterprise network, optimises response rate for faster threat detection and response, and further extends the service capability to all endpoint protection.

CITIC Telecom CPC Partners Zscaler to Launch Cloud-Native TrueCONNECT(TM) SASE Service to Secure Expanding SD-WAN Edge

CITIC Telecom International CPC Limited (“CITIC Telecom CPC”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of CITIC Telecom International Holdings Limited (SEHK: 1883), is partnering with Zscaler, the leader in cloud security, to launch TrueCONNECT(TM) SASE Service. The new cloud-native Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) integrates with the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange(TM) Platform to keep expanding network edges secure.

The announcement follows increasing interest in SASE deployments as network edge attacks increase. According to Gartner, at least 60% of enterprises will have explicit strategies and timelines for SASE adoption encompassing user, branch, and edge access by 2025, up from 10% in 2020 . The integration of TrueCONNECT(TM) SASE Service with the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange(TM) offers users holistic protection for the entire SD-WAN network topologies.

“The rise in SD-WAN deployment sees an escalation of network edge attacks. Our partnership with leading zero trust and web security solution provider Zscaler to offer TrueCONNECT(TM) SASE Service expands our existing TrueCONNECT(TM) Hybrid SD-WAN value proposition,” said Taylor Lam, Chief Strategy Officer of CITIC Telecom CPC. “The main benefactors of this partnership will be our customers who can now protect their network edges and scale the security as their network edges evolve.”

Companies are increasingly adopting SD-WAN to support hybrid workforces and distributed workloads. They also need an agile, robust, and holistic security solution that scales with their expanding network edge. Traditional on-premises network security solutions struggle to cope with the cybersecurity demands of today’s distributed enterprises, especially at the network edge. Dynamic usage patterns and a complex network landscape that includes cloud platforms and mobile technologies increase staff overheads, delay troubleshooting, and reduce scalability.

SASE takes a refreshing approach toward protecting distributed network infrastructures by relocating security at the network perimeter. It uses a granular, identity-based access model to eliminate bottlenecks and complexity while enhancing flexibility, trust, and scalability.

CITIC Telecom CPC TrueCONNECT(TM) SASE solution is a cloud-native SASE service that integrates with the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange(TM). The powerful combination offers a Zero Trust answer for distributed enterprises looking to secure their evolving network edges while simplifying edge security management and operational costs. The solution also builds on CITIC Telecom CPC’s TrueCONNECT(TM) Hybrid, a fully-managed SD-WAN connectivity solution covering nearly 60 gateways across 50 cities in 20 countries. Distributed enterprises can use the SD-WAN orchestrator to directly steer network traffic via the 150 global data centers backed by the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange.

“Today’s cyberthreats are becoming more sophisticated and frequent. Enterprises in the region need to look at holistic protection that scales as their network topology and edge grow,” said Arun Dharmalingam VP, Channels and Alliances, EMEA & APJ at Zscaler. “We are delighted to partner with CITIC Telecom CPC on their innovative cloud-native SASE service built on Zscaler’s zero trust architecture, and believe it will provide an important tool to keep their evolving SD-WAN network protected.”

The new cloud-native TrueCONNECT(TM) SASE solution, built on Zscaler’s Zero Trust Exchange(TM) offers a wide range of benefits, including:

— Globally Distributed Comprehensive Security: TrueCONNECT(TM) SASE offers a direct-to-cloud security stack to protect digital assets, users, and devices while reinforcing business continuity, ensuring robust and responsive cybersecurity at all points of access.

— Immediately Responsive Full Spectrum Security: Threats detected anywhere are immediately neutralized across the network for all users. TrueCONNECT(TM) SASE covers a full range of protective measures, including Browser Isolation, Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM), Cloud Firewall/IPS, Data Loss Protection (DLP), Sandboxing, and URL Filtering.

— Full SSL and Content Inspection: TrueCONNECT(TM) SASE gives total content visibility via full SSL inspection across all ports and protocols, with only microseconds of delay. It allows CISOs and SOC teams to monitor security activities across the SD-WAN topology easily and proactively take actions when malicious activities are detected or network usage patterns highlight an imminent attack.

— Effortless Scalability and Seamless Integration: TrueCONNECT(TM) SASE easily scales integrated policies and contextual threat visibility to accommodate additional users, security, and other business needs.

— Zero trust network access (ZTNA) capability: The service offers identity-based authentication and granular access control to empower enterprises with secure private access to cloud-native platforms or applications.
