Singapore-based Managed Security Services provider, e-Cop - also a business unit of security organisation Certis CISCO - has relaunched itself as Quann on 21 March 2016.
In line with this, the company has expanded its security offerings and Security Operations Centres (SOCs), as well as boosted investments in manpower development. Quann believes that these moves will enable it to expand its regional footprint across Asia Pacific and beyond.
The SOCs operate on Quann's proprietary patented technologies that provide real-time, big data analytics to swiftly alert clients of potential threats. Quann will boost the capability of its SOCs through the integration of physical security monitoring to provide clients with visibility over their physical and digital assets.
"Following the relaunch, our new brand identity, renewed business focus and increased investments will bolster Quann's capabilities to address the region's growing need for cyber security services. This positions us well to achieve our ambition of four-fold growth by 2020 and become Asia-Pacific's leading cyber security player," said Foo Siang-tse, Managing Director, Quann.
"Security is in our DNA and we provide a unique value proposition to our clients. By combining cutting-edge technologies with the skills, insights and experience of our cyber security professionals, we are able to provide organisations with comprehensive and customised security solutions, which are underpinned by robust processes and resilient infrastructure," he added.
Strengthening security posture in the region
Quann also announced that it has recently launched a Quann Cyber Range Centre, which provides enterprises and professionals with a platform to enhance their skills in improving enterprise infrastructure resiliency and responding to cyber threats.

The company has also signed a Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) with the National University of Singapore and the Singapore Management University, to jointly develop enterprise cyber security training modules for students and security professionals from the industry.
"The shortage of skilled cyber security specialists and experienced managers with cyber security depth is a national problem. Many organisations fall short in their cyber security efforts despite their large investments in technology because they don't have the right expertise and the necessary management awareness of what to do. Our partnership with Quann is an important step in the strategic direction of building stronger skills and capabilities in cyber security," said Steven Miller, Dean, School of Information Systems, Singapore Management University.
