Nixu’s hackers and cyber defense will become part of DNA’s corporate services

DNA and Nixu have signed a cooperation agreement that expands DNA’s information security solutions for corporate customers when it comes to the prevention of advanced cyber threats and an improved response capacity.

Cyber security is posing increasing challenges to various actors in our digitalizing society. Ensuring business continuity in all eventualities has become a central part of the everyday life of companies, and information security is therefore more and more often integrated into a broader context of information system development work and service solutions. Nixu strives to integrate their own service range into those of their partners according to the concept Cybersecurity by Nixu.

The cooperation between DNA and Nixu allows DNA’s customers to start using the Nixu Cyber Defense Center (Nixu CDC) security service, which provides customers with a digital environment for real-time supervision and intrusion investigation as well as an up-to-date snapshot of any threats to the organization’s critical infrastructure. Nixu CDC also conducts attack tests, and the service always has access to real-time information about current cyber threats and the latest attack techniques. It can respond to attacks using state-of-the-art technology and with the help of on-call experts.

“This partnership with Nixu is a natural solution, as Nixu’s service range expands DNA’s already strong range of network and information security services. Our customers can now acquire the Nixu Cyber Defense Center service through their well-known contact persons at DNA”, says Johan Flykt, director of corporate sales at DNA.

“This partnership allows DNA’s customers to acquire a smart cyber defense system that combines the latest cyber security technology with top expertise in the field”, summarizes Nixu’s chief commercial officer Valtteri Peltomäki.
