CYBERSECURITY company LightCyber said it has opened its headquarters for Asia Pacific in Singapore, and has established a team for sales, marketing and technical resources.
The company, which provides behavioural attack detection solutions, said the regional team will initially focus on Singapore, Hong Kong and South Korea.
As a part of the Asia Pacific team, Yusuke Sakurai (pic above) has been appointed to lead regional product and technical selling initiatives and will work with the newly signed channel partners to establish a sales and support network.

It is also expanding its LightCyber Channel Alliance Programme (LCAP) throughout the region to equip and empower security channel partners, the company said in a statement.
Several Asia Pacific LCAP partners have already joined, including Edvance Technology in the Singapore and Hong Kong markets, as well as Ncurity in South Korea, it added.
LightCyber provides customers security visibility into active attacks and insider threats that otherwise circumvent conventional threat prevention infrastructure, thereby curtailing potential data breaches.
Data breaches are expected to cost the global economy US$2 trillion over the next five years, according to an estimate by Juniper Research.
Data breaches have become commonplace throughout Asia Pacific, and only a small number of companies have the effective means to detect an attacker that is actively exploring an organisation’s network to gain control of valuable assets, LightCyber said in its statement.
“Enterprises in Asia Pacific face an ever-increasing frequency of external and insider threats, with the potential of an eventual data breach, loss of intellectual property, and other serious issues hanging over their heads,” said chief executive officer Gonen Fink.
“Last year was the wake-up call. Now it’s time to make a definite shift in security to complement conventional preventative security solutions with new detection capabilities.
“With behavioural attack detection, companies can find sophisticated attackers before they succeed in their objectives,” he added.
