The Palo Alto Networks MDR partner status is awarded to companies that have in-depth expertise and proven managed detection and response capabilities. Less than 20 partners in the entire world have been awarded this title, so this is an immense honor for NIL´s Security Operations Center (SOC).
NIL Ltd., part of Conscia Group, has been awarded the Palo Alto Networks Managed Detection and Response (MDR) partner title. The status enables NIL to provide MDR services by the high Palo Alto Networks (PAN) standards anywhere in the world. Additionally, the status endorses NIL´s expertise in the Cortex XDR solution. It is one of the leading EDR solutions that continuously achieves the best results at the MITRE ATT&CK organization´s tests. Cortex XDR is also an important building block of NIL´s Security Operations Center (SOC).
NIL has become the 18th company in the world to be awarded the MDR partner title. Likewise, NIL is the first and the only Slovenian partner of the Palo Alto Networks with the Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) status.
“The Palo Alto Networks MDR designation is an important benchmark that clients rely on when making decisions about which partner can help them mitigate cyber incidents. It is also a tangible way to demonstrate the capabilities of our Security Operations Center (SOC) and yet another proof that NIL has people, expertise, and solutions to protect businesses against modern cyber risks. We take great pride in the MDR partner and the MSSP statuses, as they underscore the great relationship with the Palo Alto Networks company and the top-notch knowledge of the Cortex XDR solutions,” said Klemen Štular, CTO at NIL. “This achievement also emphasizes our intense focus on cybersecurity and its importance. We strongly believe that effective cyber risk management is of immense value for businesses and a competitive advantage.”
Palo Alto Networks is one of the leading vendors in advance XDR technologies for detection and management of complex cyber incidents with their Cortex XDR solutions.

When it comes to the size or complexity of the information system and business processes, NIL provides to its clients the complete SOC, or just the MDR-solution.
