Singapore’s cybersecurity specialist e-Cop relaunches as Quann
By Digital News Asia March 28, 2016
- New logo and tagline too
- Aims to grow fourfold in next four years
SINGAPORE-based e-Cop, a managed security services provider and a business unit of security organisation Certis Cisco, said it has relaunched as Quann.
This comes in the wake of the company expanding its security offerings and security operations centres (SOCs), as well as investments in manpower development, Quann said in a statement.
This will enable Quann to expand its current regional footprint across Asia Pacific and beyond, the company added.
The relaunch also introduces a new logo and tagline – ‘the art and science of being cyber secure’ – with the tagline underlining its focus on applying the ‘art’ of its experience and foresight with the science of breakthrough technology in designing customised solutions, it declared.
“This positions us well to achieve our ambition of fourfold growth by 2020 and become Asia Pacific’s leading cybersecurity player,” Quann managing director Foo Siang-Tse.
Incorporated in 2000, Quann has more than 10 ISO/IEC 27001 certified, in-country SOCs which operate on its proprietary technologies that provide real-time, advanced big data analytics to swiftly alert clients of potential threats.
From 2011 to 2015, the company recorded annual revenue growth of more than 30% per year, surpassing the industry’s growth rate of 13.7%, it claimed.
Growing beyond Asia
Quann said it also intends to expand its infrastructure and operational footprint within and outside Asia Pacific.
Following the relaunch, Quann will boost the capability of its SOCs through the integration of physical security monitoring, creating unified intelligent operating centres that provide clients with visibility over their physical and digital assets.
“This relaunch marks a significant milestone as Certis CISCO will now be the only comprehensive and integrated security services provider in Asia,” said Certis Cisco Security Pte Ltd president and chief executive officer Paul Chong.
“It enables both Quann and Certis Cisco to grow, expand our reach and strengthen our capabilities.
“At the same time, we are able to provide comprehensive, end-to-end solutions in both physical security and cybersecurity,” he added.
Quann has also signed Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) with the National University of Singapore and the Singapore Management University, to jointly develop enterprise cybersecurity training modules for students and security professionals from the industry.
In addition, it has established strategic alliances with Palo Alto Networks and Team8 Industrial.
“We are constantly in search of new technologies from around the world,” said Foo.
