Telefónica Tech scales up its global cybersecurity services with Microsoft


Telefónica Tech has announced a new agreement with Microsoft to bring next-generation cybersecurity services to enterprises around the world.

The agreement was signed at the RSA conference recently held in San Francisco (California, USA) and the collaboration will integrate Microsoft’s advanced security and artificial intelligence solutions with Telefónica Tech’s operational cybersecurity expertise.

Telefónica Tech has expandd its existing cybersecurity portfolio, including services as Detection & Response, Identity Access Management, Cyber Threat Intelligence or Data Protection, among others, to try and improve incident response capabilities and optimise security processes.

The company will integrate Microsoft’s cybersecurity capabilities, including Microsoft Copilot for Security tool, with its existing security operations.

This 24×7 protection is managed by Telefónica Tech specialised teams – with the highest qualifications and certifications in Microsoft technology – from Telefónica Tech’s DOC (Digital Operations Centers) located in Madrid and Bogota, Colombia.

María Jesús Almazor, COO of Telefónica Tech for Spain and the Americas: “This global cooperation between Telefónica Tech and Microsoft is a key milestone. Companies around the world will take advantage of all the opportunities that technology offers to digitize processes and jobs, including tools based on generative artificial intelligence, with maximum security.”

Alberto Granados, president of Microsoft Spain: “The collaboration between Telefónica Tech and Microsoft will allow us to offer our customers innovative security solutions powered by Artificial Intelligence with the aim of improving their cyber-resilience.”

Responsible AI in Spain

This new cybersecurity agreement is a further step in the long-term collaboration between the two companies. Last February, Microsoft announced its Responsible AI Innovation Center (RAIIC) in Spain, in which Telefónica Tech collaborates, along with 15 other technology partners, to promote the adoption and secure use of artificial intelligence.

In this centre, training sessions will be developed, as well as innovative AI use cases and safe and responsible application guidelines of this technology.
