Fujitsu Unveils its Next-generation Cyber Resilience Centre
- Fujitsu has launched its new Cyber Resilience Centre (CRC) facility in Canberra.
- The CRC is a next-generation Security Operations Centre (SOC) that provides 24x7 operational management of new Security-as-a-Service (SECaaS) offerings and the continuous delivery of end-to-end security services.
- Consumption-based model will let customers scale up technology when needed, providing greater flexibility and ease of management.
- The services will be hosted using Fujitsu’s Protected Cloud, which is accredited by the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD).
As the cyberthreat landscape continues to yield more significant and pervasive threats, government agencies and enterprises need to be able to ramp up their security measures to stay ahead of attackers. Maintaining in-house resources to do this can be cost-prohibitive for these organisations, especially considering the relative scarcity of the skills required. The CRC will help overcome this challenge, providing the strong, reliable security that organisations need.
Located within Fujitsu’s Canberra office, the CRC will 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. The facility will grow to include a ‘virtual security operations centre’, which will service the entire Oceania region. This will complement the physical model and allow the facility’s services to be leveraged across the region where needed.
With continuous support for SECaaS offerings, the CRC will operate on a 24x7 basis. The centre is compliant to Federal Government SECRET level, having being purpose-built to meet these requirements. The dedicated facility features a purpose-built video wall to assist with monitoring and detection of incidents and sharing of threat intelligence.
Mike Foster, Chief Executive Officer 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.
“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 deliver a comprehensive suite of managed cyber security services including:
- Threat analytics – collation and analysis of events and the protection, detection and remediation of security incidents as well as enabling retrospective analysis to support security investigations.
- Vulnerability management – probing of assets and configurations to identify weaknesses. This information can then be used to drive the remediation activity and enhance the protection of critical information assets.
- Threat intelligence – tracking external feeds to give early indications of potential targets.
- Threat response – proactively working with customers to plan how to react effectively in the event of a breach or potential breach.
Mike Foster said, “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 cybersecurity.”
The CRC certification and processes are based on industry standards including ISO27001 and comply with the Australian Signals Directorate’s Cyber Security Manual, privacy legislations and sector specific regulations as well as Australian Government standards.Online resources
