Cisco and French data security major Thales have partnered to develop innovative cybersecuirty solutions that can detect and counter attack cyber threats in real time. Both these companies will use their best technologies to develop the cybersecurity solutions, Thales said in a statement.
The two Groups are offering a joint and integrated solution that incorporates all the relevant information on threats, emanating from the IT System, from networks to desktops. This solution provides clients with an overall visibility and optimal control of their IT security, from the prevention of attacks through to their neutralising.
“Our collaboration with Thales thus marks a new milestone where our technological expertise goes hand in hand with Thales’s global industrial excellence. I am delighted to see our cooperation today providing a response to the economic challenges associated with innovation,” said Robert Vassoyan, President of Cisco France.
This co-development project, unparalleled in the field of cybersecurity will be set up in France and operate on an open-innovation approach by bringing start-ups onboard. The joint solution, intended primarily for French critical infrastructure providers, will benefit from a worldwide deployment.
“In the coming months, this cooperation between Thales and Cisco will offer a new global solution able to meet this challenge. Thanks to the complementary nature of our respective fields of expertise, our clients will be able to benefit from the alliance of the most effective technologies in this domain,” said Jean-Michel Lagarde, Deputy General Manager, Secure communications and Information Systems, Thales.
