Singtel signs deal with Japanese firm to provide cybersecurity services
SINGAPORE Telecommunications (Singtel) and TIS Inc (TIS), a subsidiary of Japanese systems integration company TIS Intec Group, on Wednesday announced a partnership to offer cybersecurity services in Japan to help businesses build cyber resilience and protect critical infrastructure.
Singtel subsidiary Trustwave and TIS will collaborate to provide TIS Managed Security Services, powered by Trustwave, through a new Security Operation Centre (SOC) which Trustwave will establish in Tokyo. According to Singtel, Trustwave's first SOC in Japan will enhance its ability to offer TIS's customers round-the-clock monitoring of their networks and rapid response to cyber attacks.
The centre will connect to Trustwave's global network of eight SOCs and will be backed by security experts located around the world, offering Japanese businesses local visibility combined with global threat awareness and protection, the Singtel spokesman added.
Bill Chang, Singtel's group enterprise chief executive officer, said that the partnership with TIS strengthens Singtel's presence in the region. "Singtel has been active in providing ICT (infocomm technology) services in Japan and with Trustwave's managed security services, we are now able to provide a comprehensive suite of managed network, ICT and cyber security services for our Japanese clients and multinational corporations in Japan," Mr Chang added.
