Visa taps US security operations provider Expel for MDR capabilities

Global payments provider Visa has partnered with Expel to bolster their clients' protection against cyber security threats.

Global payments provider Visa has partnered with Expel to bolster their clients’ protection against cyber security threats.

The move will see Visa leverage its partner’s managed detection and response (MDR) solution, which claims to reduce alert-to-response times “to minutes”, to enable its clients to detect incoming cyber risks using metrics aligned with their own key assets.

It is hoped that this will make it easier for clients to anticipate and protect against cyber threats.

James Mirfin, global head of Visa’s risk and identity solutions, said, “As customers deal with an ever-expanding range of threats, they’re asking Visa for solutions to help them better manage their risk holistically, including cyber risk,”

He added that the partnership will “allow us to provide a more holistic security offering to new and existing clients across the network”.

The solution is set to be rolled out across USA and Canada to Visa clients initially, before rolling out globally, however no timeline for that is set.

The solution seeks to expose business vulnerabilities by combining insights gathered from external intelligence, and current threat techniques and trends, and is compatible with various attack surfaces including cloud, on-premises, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications and Kubernetes.
