Fujitsu says the CRC next-generation Security Operations Centre provides a centralised model for the management of new core Security-as-a-Service (SECaaS) offerings and the continuous delivery of end-to-end security services for its customers.
Located within Fujitsu’s Canberra office, the CRC is designed to provide Federal and State Government customers with a dedicated, physical location for cybersecurity, an escalation point for security services, and the ability to operate at a classified level with complete managed detection and response capability.
Fujitsu says the facility will grow to include a ‘virtual security operations centre’, which will service the entire Oceania region, and will complement the physical model and allow the facility’s services to be leveraged across the region where needed.
Mike Foster, chief executive of Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, said, “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 cybersecurity threats”.
“As Fujitsu helps customers on their digital transformation journey, security is an essential consideration in developing a foundation for growth. Fujitsu’s CRC teams will be on the frontline of defence for Fujitsu’s customers against cybersecurity threats. They 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.”
Foster said 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”.
“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.
“The CRC will provide end-to-end services to our customers daily. The consumption-based model lets customers scale up technology when needed, providing greater flexibility and ease of management, supporting their business needs now and into the future. Built-in automation allows for quick deployment and delivery, reducing operational costs and incident response times, with a greater focus on proactive intelligence-led cyber security.”
