IT security firm F-Secure have partnered with NetAssist to provide cyber protection services to SMEs in Malaysia. As per the terms of the deal, F-Secure will leverage their threat detection and privacy prowess, whereas NetAssist will bring in their security and training expertise.
F-Secure claim that SMEs in Malaysia and APAC face critical issues while monitoring threats across cloud, hybrid and on-premise environments. They also say that these enterprises face obstacles in terms of coping with the security of these environments since their IT teams lack sufficient knowledge to mitigate virus attacks.
By partnering with NetAssist, F-Secure believe that they will address threat monitoring, mitigating and detecting issues with respect to cyber protection. They claim that this deal will connect all the dots when it comes to cyber security and provide end-to-end solutions to protect business-critical data.
Fun Ping Hon, Chief Executive Officer of NetAssist, commented:
Aside from helping our clients secure their systems, we strongly believe that it is in everybody’s best interest to do so in as holistic a manner as possible.
As such, we ensure that we include the necessary training for our clients so that they will be able to realize the maximum potential of any security solutions they take on from us.
According to F-Secure, the alliance with NetAssist will see them moving more firmly towards helping SMEs deploy cost-efficient security solutions to protect their best assets against a complex threat landscape. Speaking about the deal, Yong Meng Hong, Regional Manager, F-Secure, South East Asia, commented:
We are excited by our partnership with Netassist and are confident of the great value our combined efforts can bring to end users.
As a global corporation, F-Secure strongly believes that such partnerships are vital in helping connect the dots the cyber security supply chain.
Looks like SMEs in South East Asia and APAC region are taking cyber protection rather seriously, especially after CrowdStrike announced the expansion of their services in Japan.
