Telefónica's cybersecurity company, ElevenPaths, is collaborating with Google Cloud's cybersecurity company, Chronicle, to develop managed security services for enterprise customers across Europe and Latin America.
The new agreement was designed to improve the managed security offering that ElevenPaths is providing to its customers. The two companies are working towards integrating Chronicle's security analytics capabilities into ElevenPaths' managed security offerings.
With evolving security threats, enterprises are often short-handed when it comes to recruiting trained security professionals, which has led to more organizations moving towards the managed service model for security operations.
Managed security service providers (MSSPs) and managed detection and response (MDRs) companies can often deliver more robust threat monitoring and responses than internal efforts by IT staffs.
As an MSSP, ElevenPaths provides both MSSP and MDR services to its corporate clients, and has professional services teams available to help customers implement their security postures.
By working with Chronicle, ElevenPaths will offer its customers better threat protection through advanced malware detection. Chronicle also provides the capability to analyze telemetry at the "speed of search" in order to troubleshoot potential problems.
The two companies are also working on better investigations of security incidents that are based on a longer retention of security telemetry information. Chronicle and ElevenPaths expect to build out and release their combined security offerings later this year.
"Using Chronicle’s solution to process the sheer volume of security telemetry that a modern enterprise generates will allow our MDR team to speed time to investigate and to respond, thereby reinforcing cyber-resilience of our customers," said Alberto Sempere, director of product and go to market for ElevenPaths, in a statement.
