SecureLink confirms opening a Cyber Defence Centre (CDC) in China
SecureLink – Europe’s independent cybersecurity and Managed Security Service provider, confirmed it is opening a Cyber Defence Centre (CDC) in Shanghai, China. Laws and regulations covering cybersecurity and data protection are rapidly increasing globally. With the introduction of local expertise and localised services, SecureLink can support its customers with both international cybersecurity challenges and Chinese-specific requirements.
SecureLink’s CDC is built on advanced technology, powered by a strong combination of artificial and human intelligence-driven solutions. This robust foundation, combined with its solid focus on best practice, ensures integrity, quality and security for all its CDC customers helping them realise cybersecurity as an enabler.
Speaking about this move, SecureLink’s CEO – Marco Barkmeijer said, “Cyber-crime doesn’t respect borders, so we’re working to remove ours to deliver continuously reliable cybersecurity worldwide. We recognised that our customers were increasingly looking for a trusted cybersecurity partner in China. By opening our new CDC in Shanghai, they now have someone that they can trust, providing the reassurance that their cybersecurity requirements will be managed globally.”
In June 2016 SecureLink acquired Coresec securing a market leadership position in the Nordics, closely followed by its acquisition of Nebulas in August 2016 to gain a market leadership position in the UK. In December it then acquired IT Cube Systems securing the market leadership position in Germany/DACH region.
SecureLink was recognised by PWC as a leader in European Cyber Security emerging market report in January 2017 and listed as a representative vendor in Gartner’s market guide for Managed Detection & Response services in June 2017. The new Shanghai CDC is the latest milestone in SecureLink’s expansion.
Marco concludes, “At SecureLink we are, of course, proud that our international customers want us to follow them worldwide. This means that other companies can also come to us knowing that we have the strength, resources and knowledge to ensure their security anytime, anywhere. We learn and improve based on the data we see daily, and with this new source of information we can deliver an even higher quality service. SecureLink is committed to safely enabling its customers businesses, both today and tomorrow.
