It will leverage its partner’s software, hardware and network equipment solutions.
Kyndryl is expanding its partnership with Cisco to deliver services that are focused on cyber resilience and proactively address enterprise-level security issues.
To do so, Kyndryl will leverage Cisco’s software, hardware, and networking equipment solutions. This includes the open Cisco Security Cloud platform to integrate technology from different vendors.
“Our collaboration,” explains Michelle Weston, vice president of Global Offerings for Security and Resiliency at Kyndryl, “will enable Kyndryl to support our customers’ zero trust journeys with dynamic, customised solutions, while integrating existing security controls.”
Weston believes that “as customers consume more cloud-based applications, it is more important than ever to have the right tools in place to help them integrate a cyber resilience framework into their IT strategy and business operations.”
Cisco has spoken through its vice president of Global Security Partner Sales, Brian Feeney, who points to “more efficient and integrated security solutions to maximise the return” on the “security investment” as a result of the alliance.
