Singapore's ST Engineering’s Electronics division has launched a first-of-its-kind Cybersecurity Operation Centre As-A-Platform (SOCaaP), which delivers customised security operations centre (SOC) solutions that result in greater operational efficiency and significant cost savings for customers’ digital assets.
The SOCaaP, which provides a complete suite of capabilities to protect, detect, respond and recover from cyberattacks, includes advanced, cutting-edge technologies such as a new age Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) and Advanced Analytics Engine. ST Engineering says these capabilities provide automated, real-time analysis of security alerts within an organisation's network with a higher degree of accuracy, compared to existing SIEM.
The Electronics division entered into a collaboration with Myanmar partner, Alliance Urban Transports (AUT) to provide cybersecurity services and training for Myanmar’s government, financial services and insurance sectors.
ST Engineering and AUT will jointly operate an SOC in Yangon. Through SOCaaP, the setup of the SOC will be shortened to just under four months, from the usual more than 12-month lead time required for such an implementation. The partners will also operate a cybersecurity training centre in Yangon to help strengthen Myanmar’s national cybersecurity resilience and boost its cyberthreat detection and response capabilities.
The agreement was signed by Mr Lau Thiam Beng, President of Cybersecurity Systems Group, ST Engineering, and Mr U Kyaw Win, Chairman of AUT. The signing ceremony was witnessed by Mr Ravinder Singh, President of Electronics, ST Engineering, Mr U Thar Oo, Deputy Minister for Transport and Communications, Myanmar, and Dr Janil Puthucheary, Senior Minister of State for Ministry of Communications and Information.
To date, ST Engineering has delivered more than 15 SOCs for government agencies and commercial enterprises internationally, helping them maintain a secure environment while ensuring continuity of business operations.
In another development, ST Engineering's Electronics sector further solidified its position as an internationally recognised cybersecurity solutions provider when eight of the sector’s cybersecurity products received the Singapore Common Criteria Scheme (SCCS) certification, administered by the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA). These products are the NetCrypt Family Series, DiskCrypt M100 (Enterprise) and DigiSAFE Data Diode product lines.
The Common Criteria (CC) certification ensures that cybersecurity products and solutions conform to strict guidelines and is the d- facto standard for cybersecurity product certification.
