NEC strengthens measures against cyberattacks
NEC Corp has established a new company structure, the Cyber Security Factory (CSF), for strengthening its support of the deployment and operation of solutions that protect against cyberattacks on government offices and businesses.
NEC said CSF solutions are expected to be available in Japan in 2013.
In recent years, there are a growing number of organizations and individuals who have lost confidential and personal information through targeted cyberattacks. Moreover, as these attacks become more sophisticated, they also become more difficult to detect, which slows the implementation of countermeasures and allows the attacks to inflict greater damage.
In order to expose this threat, and support the measures that organizations take against cyberattacks, NEC said it already provides its “Incident Visualization Solution,” “Targeted Attack Inspection Service,” and the “Utra-High-Speed Analysis Platform: InfoFrame DWH Appliance” in Japan.
NEC said it will offer technologies for building highly confidential network systems. This has resulted in the creation of the CSF, a company structure that horizontally links the internal departments that manage security issues. The CSF allows NEC to provide its customers with a single service package that includes the installation of its cyberattack countermeasure systems as well as operational support.
CSF solutions enable customers to learn about threatening conditions by themselves and to prepare internal security observation systems that serve as a development base for solutions against new cyberattacks.
Moreover, the CSF allows NEC to promote and develop its own technologies while cooperating with a wide range of security companies. As a result, NEC is able to contribute even further to the provision of safe and secure ICT environments.
