HKT has arranged to become a managed security services provider (MSSP) partner of endpoint security company Carbon Black.

As an MSSP partner, HKT will offer a suite of managed security services based on Carbon Black's Cb Defense and Cb Response security solutions.

These will include managed endpoint detection and response (EDR) services to help customers detect, prevent, predict and respond to advanced cyberattacks.

Cb Defense is a cloud-based next generation antivirus and EDR solution for desktops, laptops and services. It is powered by Carbon Black's Cb Predictive Security Cloud, which collects and analyzes unfiltered endpoint data to protect customers against future and unknown attacks.

HKT will meanwhile use Cb Response to allow its security operations center team to identify malicious files used to execute an attack, pinpoint which endpoints and services are being attacked, diagnose the root cause, and provide actionable recommendations.

“HKT is the largest telecommunications service providers in Hong Kong and the collaboration with Carbon Black will enable more enterprises and consumers to access next-generation security technology designed to thwart the sophisticated cyberattacks prevalent today," Carbon Black VP and managing director for Asia-Pacific and Japan Matt Bennett said.

“With Carbon Black's market-leading cybersecurity solutions, HKT's customers will be protected from advanced threats better than ever before."
