Info-security service provider opens centres in Mumbai, Bangkok

Singapore, June 9 (DPA) An info-security service provider has extended its operations into India and Thailand in a drive to expand in the Asia-Pacific region, a published report said on Monday. The Singapore-based e-Cop now has a Global Command Centre in Bangkok and a Global Resource Centre in Mumbai to provide monitoring and protection.

“Thai companies are looking at either managing security in-house or to outsource to a third party with the relevant expertise,” The Business Times quoted chief executive Marcus Low as saying.

The Mumbai office “leverages on the vast pool of multi-talented IT professionals in India to enhance the company’s synergy with partners,” Low said.

Low referred to a series of cyber attacks last year that swamped websites of Estonian organisations, including parliament, banks, ministries, newspapers and broadcasters.

“We see increasing awareness among international governments to set up large-scale infocom security initiatives,” Low said.
