e-Cop, a Managed Security Services Provider and a business unit of Singapore’s leading security organisation Certis CISCO, has announced recently that it has been relaunched as Quann. The initiative comes with the expansion of its security offerings and next-generation Security Operations Centres (SOCs), as well as investments in manpower development. This will enable Quann to expand its current regional footprint across Asia-Pacific and beyond. “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 Mr Foo Siang-tse, Managing Director, Quann (pix). Incorporated in 2000, Quann is the most established cyber security services provider in Singapore. It is also one of the largest in Asia, with more than ten ISO/IEC 27001 certified, in-country SOCs. The SOCs operate on Quann’s proprietary patented technologies that provide real-time, advanced big data analytics to swiftly alert clients of potential threats. From 2011 to 2015, the company recorded an annual revenue growth of more than 30 per cent per year, surpassing the industry’s growth rate of 13.7 per cent*. Foo explained: “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 customized security solutions, which are underpinned by robust processes and resilient infrastructure.” To realise its vision of becoming a global cyber security player, Quann intends to expand its infrastructure and operational footprint within and outside of Asia-Pacific. Following the relaunch, Quann will boost the capability of its SOCs through the integration of physical security monitoring, creating unified intelligent operating centers that provide clients with visibility over their physical and digital assets. “This relaunch marks a significant milestone as Certis CISCO will now be the only comprehensive and integrated security services provider in Asia. It enables both Quann and Certis CISCO to grow, expand our reach and strengthen our capabilities. At the same time, we are able to provide comprehensive, end-to-end solutions in both physical security and cyber security,” said Paul Chong, President and CEO, Certis CISCO Security Pte Ltd. Quann recently launched the 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 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. In addition, Quann has established strategic alliances with Palo Alto Networks and Team8 Industrial. They join the Quann Partner Network that comprises of leading best-of-breed cyber security companies. “We are constantly in search of new technologies from around the world. In evaluating numerous technology vendors, we curate and test them carefully so that we offer our clients only the best end-to-end cyber security solutions from network, data, and applications, to cloud and critical infrastructure,” added Foo.
