Tech Mahindra & Cisco To Deliver AI-powered Firewall for Business Security

Tech Mahindra & Cisco

Tech Mahindra has announced a significant expansion of its strategic partnership with Cisco, aiming to revolutionise network security for global customers through next-generation firewall (NGFW) modernisation solutions. This collaboration enhances traditional firewall functionalities by integrating advanced features like unified policy management across both on-premises and cloud environments and incorporating Talos threat intelligence and comprehensive malware defence.

Kunal Purohit, Chief Digital Services Officer at Tech Mahindra, emphasised the necessity of a flexible approach for enterprises to scale rapidly while upgrading their network security infrastructure. He noted that while firewalls are essential, their deployment, management, and operation can be burdensome and costly. The partnership with Cisco is set to offer a unique and efficient solution to these challenges, streamlining the firewall modernisation process.

The initiative is expected to broaden Tech Mahindra’s security service offerings, extend its market reach, and provide significant upskilling opportunities for its workforce. With a strong team positioned across key global markets such as the Americas, Europe, and Asia-Pacific and backed by Tech Mahindra’s vast resources in network and security engineering consultancy, the partnership is poised to deliver robust and innovative security solutions to meet the evolving needs of businesses worldwide.
