Dimension Data powers utility supply giant's operations with total security management
Singapore – 16 August 2018 – Dimension Data, a USD 8 billion global technology integrator and managed services provider, has been appointed as Integrated Managed Security Solutions provider by one of Asia’s largest utility company, to further the company’s business operations in Hong Kong and its subsidiaries in Asia Pacific.
The company was seeking an experienced technology partner to help them develop an overall cybersecurity strategy for its regional operations. Today’s increasingly hostile cyber environment prompted the company to look at how it can bolster its defence capabilities to mitigate risks and future-proof their technology environment.
Dimension Data was selected on the back of a tender process which included multiple portal demonstrations to showcase its domain expertise and solutions robustness. Under the agreement, Dimension Data will be responsible for the provision of a total security solution system, consisting of products, services and consultancy services, to ensure business-readiness and reliability of their systems.
This spans integration, testing and management of security solutions and over 100 devices, including next-generation firewall, Advanced Threat Protection solutions, servers and SIEM tools to ensure real-time, threat intelligence-driven protection from emerging forms of cyber-attacks. The solutions are flexible and easily scalable, aimed to support the client’s ambitious future growth plans.
“We are very excited to work with an industry leader, and to be able to accelerate its provision of essential services to the locals. Through our Managed Security Services, we have built a secure operational environment to help the client organisation deliver its services, in a reliable and sustainable manner”, said Steven Medeiros, President, Dimension Data Hong Kong.
Since implementation, the client has improved productivity across the organisation. Improved service-level agreements have also resulted in better protection of the business as the client is able to take proactive and actionable responses following threat monitoring analytics.
“We have enabled our client to gain the confidence to focus on ensuring continued service excellence in their business, with the assurance of a robust defence strategy. That is always the goal behind every implementation, and we look forward to continually evolving with them in the years to come,” said Medeiros.
