Leading industry transformation with deep industry cyber security expertise and capabilities
Singapore, 19 September 2017 – Singapore Technologies Electronics Limited (ST Electronics) today announced partnerships with key industry partners to develop new cyber security technologies, next-generation products and solutions, and industry-wide capabilities and expertise that will transform the industry and help governments and enterprises secure their critical infrastructures. These solutions and capabilities, produced through the collaborative efforts of the global thought leaders in cyber security, were launched at GovWare today.
ST Electronics inked two Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with IBM and Siemplify, as well as with CISCO, signifying the strong commitment of key industry players in boosting Singapore’s cyber security posture and countering the rapidly-evolving, complex cyber environment through joint cooperation.
“The increasingly sophistication of cyber security threats and unabated onslaught of global cyber attacks has underscored the need for a proactive and integrated security response from the industry. Our partnerships are a strong demonstration of our determination to strengthen cyber defences of increasingly connected ecosystems together with our partners. These partnerships complement our cyber security expertise, and we will be able to strengthen our customers’ defences against costly and disruptive attacks,” said Mr Ravinder Singh, President of ST Electronics.
MOU with IBM and Siemplify to Co-Develop First-of-its-Kind Cyber Security Operations Centres
ST Electronics will collaborate with IBM to co-develop next generation cyber security operations equipped with cognitive capabilities driven by threat intelligence and Artificial Intelligence. The collaboration intends to introduce a new concept to ST Electronics’ Security Operations Centres (SOCs), transforming traditional SOCs into a cognitive Command and Control Centre.
In addition, ST Electronics has also partnered with Siemplify to deliver tools that will help security teams effectively triage and respond to cyber threats, while meeting Singapore’s regulatory requirements in cyber security.
Resulting from the two partnerships is the development of ST Electronics’ new Cyber Security Command and Control Centre. Equipped with a dynamic system architecture, it leverages advanced data analytics and visualisation, deep machine learning, and automation capabilities to provide a holistic and comprehensive process of detecting external threats, responding to, and recovering from cyber threats. With its modular and scalable design, the Cyber Security Command and Control Centre also provides customised solutions for enterprises in securing their day-to-day cyber operations.
Partnership with Cisco to Deliver Deep Industry Expertise and Cyber Security Capabilities
With the increasingly challenging and complex digital landscape, threats of cyber breaches and crimes are constantly present. ST Electronics and Cisco have signed a MOU to deliver enhanced security capabilities, and provide Managed Detection and Response Security Services (MDRSS) comprising full-time, proactive, systematic threat monitoring and management to Singapore Government Agencies and enterprises.
This partnership is a further testament to ST Electronics’ dedicated focus on boosting industry-driven, skilled cyber security specialists with deep engineering expertise and extensive industry experience.
Launch of the Black Computer L100, First-of-its-Kind Cyber Security Solution
ST Electronics also showcased its new Black Computer L100, the first-of-its kind cyber security solution in the industry. Built with a dual operating system, it allows users to safely access secured and unsecured networks at the same time, from a single computer. The Black Computer possesses a unique capability of detecting malwares, performing a network isolation, and removing the malwares from the infected network with a simple reboot of the system.
The Black Computer provides a unique hardware-based cyber security solution that will allow ST Electronics to offer a customised and secure platform and network security capabilities to its customers.
The industry-first product is a result of Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd (ST Engineering)’s collaboration and investment in Janus Technologies, Inc., an endpoint cyber security provider based in California, US, through its corporate venture capital fund, ST Engineering Ventures Private Limited. Cyber security is one of the key strategic capabilities that ST Engineering will invest in to create long term value and growth.
