Capgemini said on Friday the new centre would also assist companies to protect their data, assets, identities and “overall customer trust”.
“It also supports Capgemini’s commitment to building and shaping the workforce of the future, offering clients a broader set of capabilities to address the fast-growing areas of digital strategy, cloud, artificial intelligence, customer experience innovation and other emerging technologies,” the company said.
Leveraging Capgemini’s global network of connected SOCs, the company says the security operations centre in Melbourne will offer end-to-end cybersecurity capabilities including advanced threat detection, vulnerability management, fraud monitoring, incident response, forensics, and cyber risk management and data protection and regulatory compliance.
“New technologies and business process innovations are shifting how organisations are looking at cyber security,” said Olaf Pietschner, managing director, Capgemini in Australia and New Zealand.
“Organisations are challenged not only to build in cyber security as a risk mitigation, but to drive consumer loyalty and business growth.
“The Melbourne SOC launch further strengthens Capgemini’s position in cybersecurity and provides Australian clients, who operate in regulated industries a well-rounded portfolio of cybersecurity services to accelerate their transformation with trust.”
“Our connected network of SOCs provides clients end-to-end services through a proven model that leverages the latest cloud security to better predict, prevent, detect and respond to threats,” said Geert van der Linden, executive vice-president and Cyber Security Business Lead, Capgemini.
“By leveraging different delivery models globally, our clients have the flexibility to scale the services they need based on their business ambitions, while maintaining consistent and reliable security configurations to protect their data.”
