Telefonica has signed a strategic alliance agreement to add Fortinet's Security Fabric architecture to its portfolio of managed security services. The agreement underscores Fortinet as a strategic security infrastructure partner to deliver solutions integrated with some of Telefonica's key managed security services which include the CleanPipes service, ElevenPath's FAAST persistent pentesting and virtual patching solution and ElevenPath's Metashield Protector service.

Fortinet is the security infrastructure provider used for all Telefonica's CleanPipes deployments worldwide today and will continue to be a part of the evolution of the service architecture. Telefonica customers will benefit from the combination of Telefonica's strategic security services and Fortinet's Security Fabric, which delivers pervasive and adaptive cybersecurity from IoT to the cloud.

As for its ElevenPaths' products and security services, while technology trends like IoT and cloud computing are blurring the edges of the network today, via combination with Fortinet's Security Fabric, the products and services will now enable customers to benefit from a scalable, broad threat protection solution without compromising agility or performance, said the operator in its statement.

As Telefonica expands their coverage areas, network service offerings, and customer base, they need a security partner to help them still maintain high performance at scale without business disruption. 

Pedro Pablo Pérez, ElevenPaths' CEO and Telefonica Global Security Managing Director
Fortinet's Security Fabric combined with Telefonica's ElevenPaths products provides a cohesive, intelligent security offering that sees and protects distributed environments, which means they can build and enforce seamless and consistent security policy on local and cloud networks, or across advanced architectures.
