During the opening of Ensign InfoSecurity’s headquarter, Singapore’s Senior Minister and Coordinating Minister for National Security, Teo Chee Hean, was the Guest-of-Honour.
“Ensign is built with a singular focus on cybersecurity so that we will be a company whose DNA is completely aligned to keep pace with the constantly and rapidly evolving cyber challenges. We want to build a company to deliver security solutions, services and outcomes for our stakeholders in Singapore and the region through investments to develop world-class cybersecurity expertise and innovative technologies together with our partners.” said Lee Fook Sun, Chairman, Ensign InfoSecurity.
Ensign’s global headquarters is a testament to the company’s commitment to building its presence in Asia Pacific. Ensign currently has offices in Hong Kong and Malaysia, and customer footprints in Brunei, Myanmar and Thailand. It also has plans to expand its presence in Korea in 2020.
Additionally, Ensign will continue to deepen its capabilities, such as advanced threat hunting and cyber threat intelligence, through its Singapore-based research laboratory and global partner ecosystem. The company currently has about 500 highly qualified professionals across the region, and is planning to expand by 100 to 600 staff by 2020.
Parallel to the official opening of its global headquarters, Ensign has also unveiled its new Security Operations Centre (SOC). This facility strengthens the cyber resilience of Ensign’s customers by enhancing the accuracy, and shortening the time, needed to detect and respond to cyber threats.
“We’ve seen two key challenges with Managed Security Services. Firstly, the security analysts are spending too much time and effort on monitoring, trawling through logs and investigating. Secondly, the industry continues to face a dearth of trained and experienced cyber security professionals,” said Tammie Tham, Executive Vice President, Enterprise & Services, Ensign InfoSecurity.
“At Ensign, we’ve set about to overcome these challenges through extensive use of automation and advanced technologies utilizing analytics and machine learning. We’ve set ourselves a target of automating 80% of the work that is done by SOC analysts and gradually move them up the value chain to focus on incident response and threat hunting,” added Tammie.
