SINGAPORE, May 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NTT Security, the specialized security company of NTT Group, has announced expansion into India and Philippines as part of its strategic growth plan. It will provide Managed Security Services (MSS) and Security Consulting Services based on its strength in Global Threat Intelligence and Cyber Threat Advanced Analytics accumulated through global operations. This will enable more effective and sophisticated cybersecurity solutions for enterprises and governments as well as global companies which have business operations in the regions.
The latest move forms part of plans from the specialized security company of NTT Group to become a leading MSS provider in the Asia-Pacific region – just four months after it launched the same service for digital enterprises and governments in Thailand.
Both India and the Philippines recognise the positive impact that technology brings. The Indian government, for example, is pressing ahead with its Digital India programme to transform India into a digital economy. An IDC study commissioned by Microsoft reveals that digital transformation will add an estimated USD $154 billion to India’s GDP by 2021. A similar study predicts that around 40% of the Philippines’ GDP will be derived from digital products or services. It also shows 93% of organizations in the Philippines are already in the midst of their digital transformation journey.
“A push towards a digital economy is changing the way businesses and governments are run but there can be no digital economy without security,” says Martin Schlatter, CIO and Regional CEO for NTT Security in APAC. “Just as in any other nation, cyber criminals will take advantage of organizations in India and the Philippines that fail to adequately secure their digital assets.
