INDIANAPOLIS (May 4, 2023) – Andretti Autosport announced today that Blackpoint Cyber, a leader in cybersecurity, will serve as an official partner for the 2023 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season on the No. 27 AutoNation Honda of Kyle Kirkwood.
Blackpoint Cyber uses their ecosystem of threat intelligence-backed solutions including their managed detection and response (MDR) service, to detect and respond to breaches with the same speed as Kirkwood shows on the racetrack. Like Andretti Autosport, Blackpoint Cyber embodies a drive for excellence, determination and top-tier expertise and will aim to showcase how their patented technology help businesses and managed service providers stay ahead of cyberattacks through this partnership.
Blackpoint Cyber made its debut on the No. 27 AutoNation Honda at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach when Kirkwood swept the weekend claiming his first NTT INDYCAR SERIES pole position and race win. The Blackpoint branding will now be seen across May 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.
DOUG BRESNAHAN, CHIEF COMMERCIAL OFFICER, ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT:
“It’s great to have Blackpoint Cyber join the team as an official partner on the No. 27 AutoNation Honda for the 2023 season. 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.”
JON MURCHISON, CEO AND FOUNDER, BLACKPOINT CYBER:
“We are thrilled to be a part of Kyle Kirkwood’s journey as he continues to make his mark on the racing world. 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.”
