DXC Technology has launched a new Security Operations Center (SOC) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with the aim of combatting the growing number of cybersecurity threats in Asia.
The new SOC will help to strengthen the overall security of enterprises by using analytics in IT and operational technology to improve visibility and response to threats. The centre supports DXC Intelligent Security Operations which offers expertise in advanced analytics, digital forensics, incident response and tailored solutions to protect the digital enterprise.
“While digital transformation delivers business value, it can also introduce security risks,” said Mark Hughes, senior vice president and general manager of Security at DXC. “DXC Security’s end-to-end portfolio of advisory services and managed security helps clients draw out a competitive niche by building security into the fabric of applications, infrastructure and culture to help enable large-scale digital change.”
The DXC Malaysia SOC is also integrated with the DXC Managed Security Services global network of SOCs, providing around-the-clock cyber threat detection and response services to customers. The SOC team works with its clients to understand their challenges and develop use cases for their specific needs.
“In the digital era, technology can sometimes be disruptive,” said Koushik Radhakrishnan, vice president and general manager of DXC Asia. “The scope of technology risk management is continuously expanding. A greater focus on a proactive approach to data and client protection, coupled with high-quality incident management solutions, can guide stakeholders in the event of a cyberattack. DXC is a leader in risk management and cybersecurity globally and has invested in the Malaysia SOC to ensure alignment with the strategic investments for our clients in the region.”
