Fujitsu is launching a new cybersecurity business in the Europe, Middle East, India and Africa (EMEIA) region. The firm says that it’s for business resilience against cyberattacks as part of a new, globally-integrated security offering. Fujitsu says that it will introduce extra global security services in EMEIA.
Duncan Tait, SEVP and Head of the EMEIA and Americas at Fujitsu, says: “Security has never been more critical to our customers. Although it is never going to be possible to prevent cyberattacks, we recognise that businesses cannot afford to stop operations because of them. Any form of cyberattack can cause paralysis and loss of reputation, and at worst can completely stop a company from being able to carry out its day-to-day operations. Our enhanced Cybersecurity business is focused on doing whatever it takes to ensure that our customers can maintain business continuity.”
Fujitsu says that it already provides managed security services from Security Operation Centres (SOC) in the UK, Germany, Finland and Spain. As it adds its range of Global cybersecurity offerings in the EMEIA region, Fujitsu aims to bring to the EMEIA market a wider range of security solutions currently only available in Japan, and will upgrade its SOCs in the UK and Germany to become Advanced Cyber Threat Centres.
Under the SURIENT brand, Fujitsu is also expanding the recently-introduced range of physical Data Centre Security Solutions in the EMEIA region. The first offering, SURIENT MRS, is available now. This is a secure Managed Rack Solution that uses Fujitsu PalmSecure biometric authentication, to protect and log access to locked racks running sensitive, confidential or business critical processes within a data centre.
