Thales has opened its fifth Cybersecurity Operations Centre (CSOC) in Hong Kong – a control tower to fight cyberattacks, which are growing rapidly in Asia. The group also has CSOCs in Canada, France, the Netherlands and the UK.
According to a Managed Security Services Market Trends survey published by Global Industry Analysts in April 2016, the managed security services market will reach US$35.8 billion annually by 2020, with Asia representing over 18% of the global market. From its Hong Kong CSOC, Thales provides state-of-the-art 24/7 cyber surveillance services in order to guarantee the performance, continuity and security of critical information systems; cyber-risk prevention; threat anticipation; detection of security incidents; and ultra-fast reaction against cyberattacks. It offers services to threatened organisations in the banking and finance, multinational enterprise and government agency/institutional market sectors throughout Asia.
By analysing security-related big data flows in real-time, the CSOC can raise immediate alarms and trigger remedial action when needed. Thales can also perform a range of complementary consulting services including security risk assessment, security audit, penetration testing and compliance review, ensuring that user practices are in line with the customer’s security policy at all times.
