Expanding global reach into Sri Lanka and Vietnam
ST Engineering’s DigiSAFE range of products and solutions has been gaining traction in new markets. Its DigiSAFE Data Diode solution will be deployed for Electricity of Vietnam, the country’s largest power company in a pilot programme, and was selected over several global competing solutions. The DigiSAFE Data Diode solution protects the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition, also known as control systems of industrial sectors and critical infrastructure such as transportation, energy and water treatment. The one-way data transmission solution enables the secure transfer of data from the industrial control systems to corporate information technology (IT) networks.
DigiSAFE is part of a suite of cyber security solutions developed by ST Engineering. Another area which the Group has an edge in, is the development of Security Operation Centres (SOC) having successfully designed, built and operated up to 13 SOC in Singapore and the region. In addition, it helped establish the design of Sri Lanka’s National SOC for the government of Sri Lanka, which was completed in December 2017. It is now working with a leading Sri Lankan provider of integrated ICT and security solutions to deliver a Security Operation Centre for the Bank of Ceylon. The SOC will enable the bank to build a more protected security posture, as Sri Lanka’s financial institutions move into the cashless and interconnected space.
