Palo Alto Networks announced it is working with Kerry Logistics Network Limited to strengthen security across its supply chains in the Asia-Pacific region.
Protecting the network is mission-critical for Kerry Logistics. There are more than 32,000 Kerry Logistics’ 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 utilization of Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls in both virtual and on-premises environments additionally helps to support Kerry Logistics’ cloud-first strategy.
With the strongest network in Asia, Kerry Logistics has been expanding its presence around the globe. Palo Alto Networks offers Kerry Logistics consistent management capabilities through a single console for deploying its security across all environments, which benefits the company’s IT administrators as they move workloads from on-premises to the public cloud.
“Palo Alto Networks allows our IT administrators to adapt to a diverse range of scenarios with ease and speed. In a dynamic industry such as logistics, time-saving is everything. 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.
After selecting and deploying Palo Alto Networks PA-5000 Series Next-Generation Firewalls, Kerry Logistics is in the process of adding Panorama network security management, simplifying management tasks while delivering comprehensive controls and deep visibility into network-wide traffic and security threats.
