TELUS (T) has launched its new Managed Cloud Security service, a custom security platform for Canadian organizations.

The service was built in collaboration with Palo Alto Networks, a global leader in cybersecurity. It offers a comprehensive way for users to secure their data whether at the office, at home, or on the go.

Carey Frey, chief security officer and vice president at TELUS Security, commented on the new cloud-based service.

“Canadian organizations are looking for modern ways to secure their hybrid workplace [. . .] With our service, organizations gain the ability to create and enforce a consistent security posture no matter where their users are working from.”

The Managed Cloud Security service allows companies to set up custom security policies. With these settings, all traffic within an organization communicating with the Internet, the cloud, or between branches is inspected and filtered based on the custom policies.

The platform includes next-generation firewall services, threat prevention, malware prevention, URL filtering, SSL decryption, and application-based policies, all built on Palo Alto Networks’ Prisma Access technology.

“By leveraging Prisma Access,” said Palo Alto VP of Global Service Emma Carpenter, “TELUS provides a comprehensive security service through a single, integrated, cloud-delivered platform that keeps TELUS customers secure, no matter where they do business and without any compromise of performance or user experience.”

TELUS is one of the big three wireless service providers in Canada, with over 16 million customer connections spanning wireless, data, IP, voice, television, entertainment, video, and security.

TELUS (T) Stock is down 0.11 per cent, trading at $28.08 per share as of 1:38 pm ET.
