Palo Alto Networks, the global cybersecurity leader, announced that Telkomsel has added the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform to its cybersecurity framework.

Telkomsel is the largest telecommunications provider in Indonesia and the world’s sixth largest telco. Of the country’s 260 million population, 168 million are Telkomsel customers. As the business now provides content, transport and digital payment services to its mobile customers, it must protect a vast wealth of customer data and ensure constant uptime of services.

Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform, which includes the next-generation firewall, cloud-delivered threat intelligence services and advanced endpoint protection, enables Telkomsel to strengthen its cybersecurity as it develops new online and mobile services. It is first being deployed on Telkomsel’s business-critical billing platform.

By deploying the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform, Telkomsel gains additional control of network traffic with the ability to set comprehensive security rules. The Palo Alto Networks platform provides Telkomsel, which is regulated by both Indonesia’s Financial Services and Telecoms authorities, with a clear and detailed audit trail of network activity and configuration changes.

For Telkomsel, the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform comprises PA-5200 Series next-generation firewalls and Panorama network security management.

As Indonesia’s flagship operator, we have a role in addressing cybersecurity. We want cybersecurity to be an enabler for our business and for Indonesians in general.
