Foregenix launches Digital Forensics and Incident Response services in Australia and APAC


"Independent cyber security consultancy" Foregenix has launched its Digital Forensics & Incident Response services, a "managed service that combines hands-on support from Foregenix’s Threat Intelligence Team and Serengeti", its "threat-hunting technology".

We're told this technology "detects attacks often missed by industry-standard cybersecurity solutions and reduces false positives making threat identifications faster". 

And, to speed up the response process, the company has "a team of first responders based in Australia and Asia-Pacific" who will "give support to resolving any network and systems breaches".

Founded in 2009 as a digital forensics specialist and now covering 15 countries, Foregenix opened its Australian office in May 2017, and also proudly boasts of being "an official Payment Card Industry forensics investigator".

Dan Ball, the company's APAC territory manager on Managed Detection and Response services, said: "Attacks in this day and age are more complex than ever and often undetected by traditional, signature-based detection methods.

"Managed Detection and Response services hunt for suspicious behaviour and indicators of compromise (IoC) to detect and contain even the latest, unknown threats.

"Foregenix is one of the few security vendors globally which develop its own detection and response technology and manage it as a service through its own Threat Intelligence Group. With a global team of first responders, including feet on the ground in Asia-Pacific, we’re proud to bring our Managed Detection & Response service to this region."

Raymond Simpson, Foregenix managing director for Asia-Pacific, said he believes the region will attract more cyber criminals over the next few years and added: "Australia and Asia Pacific hasn’t borne the brunt of cyber attacks yet and many companies are not prepared for the challenges ahead.

"The threat landscape is dramatically changing with greater use of credit cards and Fintech solutions in the region, which cyber criminals increasingly target.

"Our MDR service aims to protect businesses whatever the level of cyber security awareness is and prevent them becoming another cyber crime casualty."


Australia is a cyber espionage hot spot.

As we automate, script and move to the cloud, more and more businesses are reliant on infrastructure that has high potential to be exposed to risk.

It only takes one awry email to expose an accounts payable process, and for cyber attackers to cost a business thousands of dollars.
