NEC and Securonix Forge Strategic Alliance to Strengthen Advanced Cyber Defence Solutions

NEC Asia Pacific, the Singapore-based regional headquarters of global technology firm, NEC Corporation, and Securonix, Inc., a leader in Unified Defence Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), have sealed a partnership to enhance and advance NEC’s cyber defence services in Southeast Asia. This collaboration signifies a strategic alliance geared towards advancing NEC’s vision for technological innovations and advancements, with a specific focus on enhancing the capabilities of NEC’s Managed Services Business Unit, securely and safely.

According to the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore, the risks posed by cyber threats will continue to grow as Singapore digitalises. Cyber threats and attacks are becoming more sophisticated, in particular, phishing attacks where employees are tricked into revealing sensitive information; this can result in a loss of data or money or cause disruption to the operations of organisations. The need for cybersecurity has become more important than ever.

Public and private sector organisations are also facing challenges of growing cyber threats across different domains and are often insufficiently equipped to deal with cyber attacks on their operations. To bridge the gap, NEC partners with Securonix to ensure that our customers are equipped to address pertinent cybersecurity threats with our swift response capabilities. This partnership also ensures business continuity planning for organisations when a cyber breach occurs.

The NEC and Securonix alliance promises numerous benefits for NEC’s customers, including enhanced visibility, cost-reduction, and swift response capabilities. Securonix’s state-of-the-art technology significantly amplifies the visibility of potential attack surfaces, empowering proactive measures for threat management and efficiently handling of cybersecurity incidents. The automated platform further contributes to cost reduction, optimising overall operations. Beyond technology, Securonix commits to providing comprehensive support to NEC, extending from the initial onboarding of partners and customers to the platform to the management of day-to-day operations. This platinum partnership ensures Securonix prioritises NEC’s specific needs, facilitating rapid and effective incident management response.

Job Chan, Vice President, NEC APAC, said, “Our objective is to support customers to manage and overcome any potential cybersecurity challenges they may face in their daily business operations so that there is business continuity. The integration of Securonix into our strategic framework allows us to strengthen our cybersecurity services to customers. Such collaboration with a renowned partner will deepen our customers’ trust in us as we offer security-as-a-service to our customers as part of our comprehensive managed services tech stack.”

“Securonix’s current technology marks a notable transition towards a unified solution seamlessly integrating SIEM, UEBA (User and Entity Behaviour Analytics) and SOAR (Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response). This forward-looking solution is experiencing high demand and is poised to shape the future of the continually-evolving cybersecurity landscape”, added Chan.

“Today marks a pivotal moment in our commitment to fortifying cyber resilience and driving hyper-growth for businesses in the APMEA market. Through this strategic alliance, we look forward to embarking on a transformative journey, harnessing our next-gen SIEM capabilities & NEC’s strong foothold in the market to elevate their cyber defence solutions. Together, we stand ready to confront emerging threats, safeguarding organizations with unparalleled expertise and cutting-edge technologies,” stated Ajay Biyani, Vice President, APJ, India, Middle East & Africa at Securonix.
