GLOBAL cybersecurity leader Palo Alto Networks announced that it is working with Hong Kong's Kerry Logistics to strengthen security across its supply chains in the Asia-Pacific region.
Protecting the network is mission-critical for Kerry Logistics with its more than 32,000 employees connected to the network, with the number of devices - from scanners to tablets to wearable technology - projected to triple. In addition, the company needs to provide real-time delivery status for customers.
'With a strong security posture, Kerry Logistics can detect and prevent cyberthreats faster and manage its security more efficiently. A more disciplined approach to security rules also allows Kerry Logistics to meet regulatory requirements, including ISO 27001 certification.
'The utilisation of Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls in both virtual and on-premises environments additionally help to support Kerry Logistics' cloud-first strategy,' the company said.
'Security threats are increasingly sophisticated, using methods we have never seen before. Palo Alto Networks ensures we enjoy effective protection from these attacks and offers additional opportunities to strengthen our security perimeter. In logistics, time is the market, and we can now adopt a Zero Trust approach to security,' said Edward Tsang, deputy general manager of Information Technology Services, Kerry Logistics
