Singtel cyber security centre launched
Singapore Telecommunication (Singtel) moved closer to becoming a major regional cyber security provider by formally launching its Advanced Security Operations Centre (ASOC) in Singapore.
The ASOC has been built by Singtel in partnership with Nasdaq-listed network security provider FireEye. It combines FireEye's security expertise - especially in something known as APT (Advanced Persistent Threats) - with SingTel's info-communications capabilities and extensive regional data infrastructure.
Speaking to The Business Times, Bill Chang, Singtel's CEO of Group Enterprise, said the ASOC provides organisations with the latest technology, expertise and intelligence to enhance their security protection against the rapidly growing threat of advanced attacks in the Asia-Pacific region.
The ASOC is the first facility of its kind to be integrated into Singtel's existing network operations centre. This gives cyber security experts end-to-end visibility of Internet traffic, corporate networks and user end-points, for a swift response to security incidents.
The ASOC has 50 security professionals locally, and access to a global network of FireEye SOCs and security experts trained in handling sophisticated cyber threats and forensics. Singtel-FireEye customers will have access to experts who provide "follow-the-sun" capability 24/7 to detect, protect against and respond to cyber threats.
