Telstra has partnered with BlueVoyant to launch Telstra Cyber Detection and Response – Endpoint.

It is a fully managed 24/7 service that detects and responds to cyber-attacks at the endpoint, in Australia and New Zealand. Billed as a "collaborative effort" it combines Telstra's managed security services with BlueVoyant's technology for the first time.

Matthew O'Brien, cyber security executive, product and technology at Telstra, said: "Recent research suggests that the majority of Australia's top companies will continue to use remote and hybrid work models into the foreseeable future. In fact, it has become an embedded work practice, and is possibly one of the most profound shifts to come out of the pandemic.

"This means managing the endpoint through advanced detection and response capabilities is absolutely critical. Telstra's partnership with BlueVoyant demonstrates our continued commitment to securing Australian businesses."

The BlueVoyant platform, a cloud-based ingestion processing and analysis system, gives clients access to threat alerting, mitigation and resolution. The service is complemented by the largest Australian-owned professional services arm in Telstra Purple, and represents further investment by Telstra in delivering an integrated security service for mid- to large-size organisations.

The two said that cybersecurity in the Australian market is "highly fragmented" at present, with businesses struggling with the complexity of multi-vendor solutions.

As a result, and together with Microsoft, BlueVoyant focuses on accelerating the development and release of security-based solutions. The partnership is founded on Telstra and Microsoft's shared understanding that security is underpinned by the increase in cloud adoption, combined with 5G, to enable an intelligent and secure workplace environment for all.

Milan Patel, global head of managed security services at BlueVoyant, said: "Hybrid working coupled with the escalating frequency and sophistication of cyber-attacks means that every laptop, tablet and mobile phone is a target for an endpoint attack. Working together with Telstra, our managed service means that their clients can immediately access and protect their organisations' devices and data."
