William Ho, HKBN Co-Owner and CEO, Enterprise Solutions said, “In today’s security landscape, siloed solutions cannot keep up with evolving threats. Security teams struggle with overwhelming alerts, complex investigations, and insufficient data. Enterprises lack holistic visibility and deep analytics, leading to missed attacks. With a scarcity of security talent, a radical new approach is needed: one that harnesses the power of comprehensive data, advanced analytics, and continuously learning AI to eliminate threats effectively.”

AegisConnect AI will leverage the Palo Alto Networks expertise in AI-powered extended detection and responses to stop sophisticated attacks in the network, endpoint and cloud for enterprises. Cortex XDR accurately detects threats with behavioural analytics and machine learning, providing real-time insights and threat intelligence distribution at scale.

In addition, AegisConnect AI includes several other key offerings from Palo Alto Networks suite of security solutions, such as Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW), Secure Web Gateway (SWG), Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), and Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP).  This ensures that large enterprises have a comprehensive and integrated security solution to combat evolving cyber threats effectively.

Wickie Fung, Managing Director, Hong Kong & Greater Bay Area of Palo Alto Networks, commented, “We are excited to partner with HKBNES and integrate our cutting-edge technologies into the AegisConnect AI solution. By combining our expertise in cybersecurity, we reinforce our commitment to delivering robust connectivity, advanced security, and seamless manageability to large enterprises. Together, we are setting a new standard for connectivity and security in Hong Kong.”
