Australian cyber security firm Secure Logic will open its second Cyber Threat Intelligence Centre in the Indian city of Bangalore with a $4 million investment. The company already has one such centre in Sydney. The second centre is due to open its doors in December.

A statement from the company said its revenue in the Asian region had been doubling since it started operations in 2015. Among its customers are Telecom Malaysia, Maybank, Paysys, GHL and AXS.

Chief executive Santosh Devaraj said there was a growing demand for security services in India.

“Heavily influenced by the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, the Indian Government is exploring legislation to protect personal data and impose limitations on the collection and processing of sensitive data," he said.

"While the draft legislation may face some amendments, cyber security is front of mind for government and businesses, driving unprecedented growth across the sector.

“To capitalise on this opportunity, Secure Logic will open a 24/7 Cyber Threat Intelligence Centre in Bangalore by December 2019 and increase our local headcount from 10 to 40.

"This investment in local infrastructure, combined with our experience of supporting Australian government departments and leading organisations, will put us at the front of the queue for businesses seeking security solutions."

Secure Logic also announced that it had appointed Simon Ratcliffe, former head of cyber security at Singtel Optus, as its group general manager.

Devaraj said: “Simon’s reputation for success and growth in leading international security services operations will allow me to focus more on the company innovation agenda and international expansion.

“We are seeking partners both here and across the region to build out the service portfolio, and deliver solutions to the burgeoning Asian marketplace.”
