Fujitsu has launched a new security operations centre (SOC) in Canberra in an effort to boost its services offering.
Named the Cyber Resilience Centre (CRC), the facility will provide a centralised management hub for Fujitsu’s new security-as-a-service (SECaaS) offerings.
Aimed primarily at Federal and State Government customers, the facility will oversee managed and professional security services across the Oceania region using an unnamed Australian Signals Directorate-certified Protected Cloud as a host.
It will also be compliant at a Federal Government Secret level, the second-highest tier of classification.
“Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand has invested in this next-generation facility to make sure we are well-positioned to protect our customers from ever-increasing cyber security threats,” Fujitsu A/NZ CEO Mike Foster said.
“[Fujitsu] will be monitoring the latest threats, responding to the requirements of new security standards, and formulating the best ways to deal with a wide range of issues as they arise.”
Operating on a consumption cost mode, the centre will provide services including: threat analytics, vulnerability management, threat intelligence and threat response.
According to Fujitsu, the centre will operate at a classified level and will have a managed detection and response capability.
In addition, the centre will grow to encompass ‘virtual security operations centre’ that can service the entire Oceania region.
“The CRC sits at the heart of Fujitsu’s security portfolio, providing support for security requirements across our offerings including hybrid IT, cloud, digital workplace services, and digital solutions,” added Foster.
“The integrated solution removes the clutter and complexity of managing multiple single security functions, providing additional value, increased efficiency, speed of detection and analysis, and quicker response to critical threat incidents.”
