  • Multi-faceted team provides a hands-on approach to security business processes

Melbourne, May 28, 2015 – Fujitsu today announces that a dedicated Security Services practice is now operating in Australia and New Zealand. In its drive to protect clients’ information assets in the face of emerging strategic and operational business challenges, Fujitsu’s Security Services is a single-source practice that comprises expert professional services complemented by managed security services delivered from Fujtisu’s Security Operations Centre (SOC) in Sydney. The SOC works across all customer security domains supporting market-leading technologies. Its multi-faceted team provides a hands-on approach to security business processes that includes a strong human element, supported by advanced technologies to complete the end-to-end offering.
Fujitsu has proven its Security Services model in the UK & Ireland, US and Japanese markets where it leverages its global defence and intelligence community heritage and strong vendor relationships to provide comprehensive service coverage to clients – a program known as the ‘Global Security Initiative’. The local Fujitsu Oceania team members have all been responsible for delivering information security services to a wide client base that includes Federal and State government departments and ASX-listed companies. The practice operates in close collaboration with Fujitsu security teams around the world, sharing intelligence and methodologies, and bringing innovative technologies, such as Palmsecure/Biometrics, to the market.
Brendan Smith, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) and Senior Manager, Security Services at Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, said: ““Fujitsu Security Services will be a critical resource and partner for our clients as they seek to protect their information, systems and even businesses against ever-increasing and agile threats. The hyperconnected landscape that businesses operate in today can be hostile, and we help customers manage the information security risks that arise with being a part of our digital world.  We are delivering end-to-end security services, from consulting to assurance and risk to cyber security operations in our SOC. Crucially, our focus is on the human interactions within business processes, to balance reliance on technology in any service delivery.
“Our regional team is backed by Fujitsu’s global IT and systems integration offering. If a client requires our biometrics expertise from Japan, input on defence systems from the UK, or endpoint or cloud infrastructure, we can draw on the appropriate skillset.”
