TruVisor takes up Prisma Cloud distribution in Southeast Asia
Thu, 15th Feb 2024

TruVisor, a technology distributor in Asia, announced its appointment as the specialised distributor for Prisma Cloud in Southeast Asia (SEA) by global cybersecurity leader, Palo Alto Networks. This move underscores TruVisor’s ongoing dedication to comprehensive security solutions and addresses an essential need in their cloud security domain offerings.

Over the course of the pandemic, the demand for hybrid work led organisations to increase their use of the cloud by over 25%. This significant utilization of the cloud has put enormous pressure on developers to speed up the delivery of production code. This, in turn, has complicated application security and heightened the burden on security teams. Organisations face even more pressure as detection and response to threats has been slow for most.

Prisma Cloud is a cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) engineered to guard applications across any public, private, hybrid or multicloud environment. Honoured as a leader in The Forrester Wave: Cloud Workload Security, Q1 2024, Prisma Cloud provides uninterrupted visibility and threat prevention throughout the application lifecycle. This includes protection against zero-day threats and broad 'Code to Cloud' coverage, making it a singular platform meeting security needs at every juncture of a customer's cloud application journey.

Jonathan Juay, Executive Director of TruVisor, stated, "Our distribution agreement with Palo Alto Networks for Prisma Cloud addresses critical security concerns in code and cloud infrastructure. This partnership exemplifies TruVisor's commitment to delivering comprehensive security solutions and fills a crucial gap in our cloud security domain offerings."

As TruVisor extends its developments in domains such as Asset Intelligence Security, Identity and Security, Data Protection and Management, Digitalization and Automation, the extensive Code to Cloud intelligence provided by Prisma Cloud becomes a central component. "We believe this is an enormous opportunity in cloud security for our partners to expand their existing TAM and capture greater customer mindshare and wallet share," he added.

Sujamto Prasetio, Channel Director at Palo Alto Networks (ASEAN) also noted, "Cloud adoption rates are on an upward trajectory as more businesses continue to embrace the cloud's potential for digital transformation. However, complexity is everywhere in the cloud. More than ever, enterprises need to shift left in their security approach, implementing security at the origin of the code development lifecycle."

Prasetio underscored TruVisor's experience in assisting businesses with digitisation, automation, and cybersecurity operations. He added, "With over a decade of experience in reselling and aiding businesses in digitalisation, automation and cybersecurity operations, TruVisor is suitably positioned to encourage Prisma Cloud adoption as the platform solution of choice amongst Southeast Asian organisations who want complete cloud security."
