Tech Mahindra

The partnership between Cisco and Tech Mahindra elevates standard firewall functions with sophisticated features such as unified policy management across on-premises and cloud environments. 

Tech Mahindra has expanded its partnership with Cisco to deliver a next-generation firewall (NGFW) modernization solution for their shared global customers. The partnership will integrate Talos threat intelligence and deliver comprehensive malware defense for the network and endpoints, among other enhancements. The NGFW is designed to be flexible, adjusting to the ever-changing requirements of network environments and security risks, and is available in various deployment formats, including hardware, software, and virtual options.

Kunal Purohit, Chief Digital Services Officer, Tech Mahindra, said, “Enterprises need a flexible approach that allows them to scale at speed while modernizing their network security. While firewalls are critical to the organization’s network security, they can be time-consuming, complex, and expensive to deploy, manage, and operate. The partnership with Cisco marks a milestone in providing a unique, robust, efficient, and cost-effective solution for the firewall modernization roadmap.”
Nick Holden, VP of Global and Strategic Partners & Ecosystem Co-Sell, Cisco, said, “As global customers continue to modernize their infrastructure, they’ll need a next-generation firewall solution that scales as their network expands, combines multiple security functions into one platform, and provides threat intelligence across different security layers. Our partnership with Tech Mahindra offers these customers a specialized way to customize and implement these firewall capabilities based on their unique business and network needs.”

The partnership will expand Tech Mahindra’s security service portfolio, enhance market reach, and provide upskilling opportunities for its workforce. As per analyst reports, the global average cost of a data breach was $4.35 million in 2023. Also, it will leverage Tech Mahindra’s extensive network and security engineering consultancy resources, encompassing a robust team across key global markets, including the Americas, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.
