INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Andretti Autosport announced today that Blackpoint Cyber, the technology-focused cybersecurity company providing solutions via managed service providers (MSPs), will serve as an official partner on the No. 27 AutoNation Honda of Kyle Kirkwood for the 2023 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season.
Blackpoint Cyber uses its ecosystem of threat intelligence-backed solutions, including its Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service, to detect and respond to breaches with the same speed Kirkwood shows on the racetrack. Like Andretti Autosport, Blackpoint Cyber is driven by a pursuit of excellence, determination, and top-tier expertise. Through this partnership, Blackpoint aims to showcase how its patented technology helps businesses and managed service providers stay ahead of cyberattacks.
Blackpoint Cyber made its debut on the No. 27 AutoNation Honda at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach, where Kirkwood swept the weekend and claimed his first NTT INDYCAR SERIES pole position and race win in April 2023.
“We are thrilled to be a part of Kyle Kirkwood’s journey as he continues to make his mark on the racing world,” said Jon Murchison, CEO and Founder, Blackpoint Cyber. “Kyle's passion and dedication to his craft align perfectly with the values that drive Blackpoint's pursuit of excellence in the cybersecurity space. Partnering with Andretti Autosport is an opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to winning the race against cyberthreats, and we wish Kyle and the team all the best this season.”
“It’s great to have Blackpoint Cyber join the team as an official partner on the No. 27 AutoNation Honda for the 2023 season,” said Doug Bresnahan, Chief Commercial Officer, Andretti Autosport. “As we head into May with such strong momentum, it’s an exciting time to welcome like-minded partners like Blackpoint Cyber to the team.”
Blackpoint branding will now be seen throughout the 2023 season, including at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the GMR Grand Prix on May 12-13 and later at the 107th Running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on May 28.
