Telefónica introduces new software-based security service

Clean Pipes 2 will offer high-level security for low TCO, claims company

Networking and telecoms firm Telefnica Business Solutions has introduced a new software-based security service to help defend against threats both known and unknown across its business network.

Clean Pipes 2, as the product is called, has been developed in conjunction with Telefnica's cyber security unit ElevenPaths and Palo Alto Networks and is underpinned by the latter company's Next-Generation Security Platform.

The product offers features such as application-layer firewall, protection against known and unknown threats, web filtering and intrusion prevention. It's delivered to Telefnica Business Solutions customers as a service via its virtual network infrastructure, with the aim of delivering a high level of security at a lower total cost of ownership, the company said.

Hugo de los Santos, CEO for B2B products and services at Telefnica Business Solutions, said: ""With the implementation of this solution, Telefnica Business Solutions reinforces the security of Internet services for large customers even more. Additionally, it allows us to enrich the value proposition we offer to the segment of Large Enterprises, with a product that comes with great effectiveness and, at the same time, with a low investment."

Our collaboration gives organizations peace of mind, with complete visibility and control over the usage of their digital services, while knowing that cyberattacks on their most valued data assets and critical control systems can be prevented."

Clean Pipes 2 is available immediately to all Telefnica Business Solutions customers.
