Ensign InfoSecurity launches global HQ in Singapore

Ensign InfoSecurity (Ensign), one of the largest pure-play cybersecurity companies in the Asia Pacific, officially launched today its global headquarters, and its new Security Operations Centre (SOC), in Singapore, with Singapore’s Senior Minister and Coordinating Minister for National Security Teo Chee Hean, as guest of honor.

“Ensign is built with a singular focus on cybersecurity so that we will be a company whose DNA is completely aligned to keep pace with the constantly and rapidly evolving cyber challenges,” said Lee Fook Sun, chair, Ensign InfoSecurity. “We want to build a company to deliver security solutions, services and outcomes for our stakeholders in Singapore and the region through investments to develop world-class cybersecurity expertise and innovative technologies together with our partners”

Ensign’s global headquarters is a testament to the company’s commitment to building its presence in the region. Ensign currently has offices in Hong Kong and Malaysia, and customer footprints in Brunei, Myanmar and Thailand. It also has plans to expand its presence in Korea in 2020.

Ensign will continue to deepen its capabilities, such as advanced threat hunting and cyber threat intelligence, through its Singapore-based research laboratory and global partner ecosystem. The company currently has about 500 highly qualified professionals across the region, and is planning to expand by 100 to 600 staff by 2020.

Parallel to the official opening of its global headquarters, Ensign has also unveiled its new Security Operations Centre (SOC). This facility strengthens the cyber resilience of Ensign’s customers by enhancing the accuracy, and shortening the time, needed to detect and respond to cyber threats. It is also set to improve the efficiency and efficacy of its cybersecurity analysts through three key features: Highly contextualized and actionable Singapore-centric and Global Cyber Threat Intelligence; Advanced Cyber Threat Analysis and Data Enrichment; and Automation.

The SOC taps on Ensign’s newly unveiled Cyber Threat Detection & Analytics engine which leverages big data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) to generate the most relevant, local insights on emerging and imminent cyber threats. Ensign is the only cybersecurity company in Singapore that provides this deep Singapore-centric, sectoral threat intelligence.
