Security firm NTT Security has opened a security operations centre in North Sydney to cater to its Australian clients and help them assess and mitigate cyber security threats.

The new SOC is part of network of 10 such centres and is powered by a single global managed security services platform. It consists of a secure advanced threat monitoring and incident response centre.

NTT Security’s global chief information officer and regional chief executive for APAC, Martin Schlatter, said, “Cyber security risks are less predictable than before, and attackers are developing more sophisticated ways of breaching defences.

"The role of the SOC has evolved from a standalone security monitoring and alerting environment to one that is much more proactive in hunting for threats and more integrated with each client’s environment – not just the technology – but also at an operational and business level.

“Together with our NTT Group companies, we’re providing the necessary services across the entire information and communications technology stack and throughout the full security lifecycle globally."

The North Sydney SOC will house local cyber security specialists who will work closely with clients to define specific use cases for the services offered.

Dimension Data’s Australian director of Cyber Security, John Karabin, added, “The level of analytics and automation we have in the SOC, and the instantaneous access we have to threat intelligence globally is a clear differentiator for us in the Australian market.

"We also now have access to highly specialised security skills and resources from geographies where particular technologies and applications are already in more widespread use, such as IoT deployments in manufacturing industries and critical infrastructure.”

Tarquin Bellinger, chief operating officer of NTT Communications in Australia, commented, “This SOC launch is another fantastic example of NTT Group’s commitment to the Australian IT market.

"By leveraging the global network and security infrastructure of the NTT Group, we can now offer world class resilience capabilities to our enterprise and government clients, delivering tangible business benefit and reduced risk in this digital age.”

NTT Security is part of the Japanese NTT Group, which includes NTT Communications, NTT DATA and Dimension Data.
