HONG KONG -- CPCNet, a wholly owned subsidiary of CITIC Pacific (SEHK: 267), and Cybertrust, the global information security specialist, have unveiled plans to offer an Integrated Suite of Information Security Services to companies operating in Greater China. Grouped under the name TrustCSI the new services will be driven out of a world-class Security Operations Centre (SOC) in Hong Kong that will open at the end of June.
TrustCSI will enable companies to address the security challenges they face in Greater China, and particularly within the Peoples Republic of China (PRC), where the current IT security levels often most need to be improved. Through a broad range of TrustCSI solutions flexible enough to meet the varying needs of different types of organizations, customers will benefit from 24 by 7 device monitoring and threat tracking, security analysis, reporting and compliance.
According to a survey(1) carried out by Information Week Research and Accenture, Chinese companies suffer more viruses, worms, denial-of-service attacks, and identity thefts than their U.S. counterparts. These companies also face this onslaught of attacks on limited budgets with fewer protections in place.
"Many companies in China are suffering from growing pains and are therefore often under-prepared and overstretched when it comes to protecting their IT assets," said Stephen Ho, Chief Executive Officer of CPCNet. "TrustCSI, which we are launching in conjunction with Cybertrust, offers a fast and cost-effective way to harden the soft IT underbelly of companies in China."
