Singapore-based managed security services provider, Quann, has brought its cybersecurity services to the cloud via the Google Cloud Platform.
Quann on Thursday (21 September 2017) announced that it has become a Google Cloud Platform Services Partner. This enables them to offer their services on the cloud, such as security architecture assessments, data penetration, testing, and incident response management.
"Securing cloud is complex. It is a nascent field in Singapore as many enterprises and cloud services running today are not ready from the security standpoint. Hence, it is imperative that enterprises work with public cloud platform providers to ensure a multi-dimensional security on the cloud - from data centre to network and application security," said Foo Siang-tse, managing director at Quann.
Under the partnership, Quann and Google will also work together to develop a cybersecurity threat analytics that will be powered by Google's analytics engine and technologies to provide enterprises with threat intelligence that could help them predict future threats.
Quann partners Claroty to power its OT security solution
In related news, Quann has also partnered with operation technology (OT) network security provider, Claroty, to power its OT security solution.
"This partnership has been in stealth mode for over a year as we have been building up our joint capabilities and carrying out trials for key customers. It brings together one of the best-in-class OT solution providers with a leading MSSP. The OT risk is the next biggest security challenge that will face organisations going forward. CIIs are typically very secure from a physical perspective but there often are vulnerabilities in both the IT and OT domain. There will be real-world consequences when there are OT breaches," said Foo.
According to Quann, its OT security solution is able to dive deep into complex multi-vendor OT environment which will allow their clients to monitor all their assets, traffic and legitimate behaviour, as well as discover hidden issues. Clients will thus be alerted should a security threat surface.
