New Delhi, Apr 10 (PTI) Tech Mahindra today said it has entered into a strategic partnership with Silicon Valley-based Balbix for launching an artificial intelligence-powered threat assessment platform to check cyber security breaches.

The Tech Mahindra and Balbix platform uses deep learning and specialised AI algorithms to predict how attacks can happen and propagate, providing actionable insights to mitigate the risk of breach, the Indian firm said in a statement.

“With Balbix, Tech Mahindra’s intelligent security operations centre (iSOC) offering can now predict and proactively avoid cyber-breaches by continuously monitoring IT inventories for hundreds of breach risk factors and take appropriate mitigating steps,” it said.

The iSOC improves reporting by accurately measuring overall breach risk and cyber-resilience, it added.

Tech Mahindra Global Head of Enterprise Security and Risk Management Rajiv Singh said the agreement is a big step forward towards an integrated approach to security and risk management an aspect that is sweeping across every enterprise today, given the massive increase in the incidence of data breaches.
