NEC Establishes Security Operations Center in USA

TOKYO, Mar 13, 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - NEC Corporation (TSE: 6701) and Infosec Corporation, a specialized security company belonging to the NEC Group, today announced the establishment of Infosec America, Inc. as a Security Operations Center (SOC) in Santa Clara, California, USA. The new company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Infosec Corporation. Operation of this new SOC is slated to begin in April 2017.

NEC's experience in the security field includes the provision of managed security services that capitalize on specialized personnel from both NEC and Infosec in order to provide 24/7 security monitoring and emergency response to cyber incidents. Until now, these operations have been performed centrally at NEC's Cyber Security Factory in Japan, a core center that supports the introduction and operation of measures against cyberattacks.

In order to accommodate an increasing number of customers while maintaining high-quality services, NEC is now establishing a worldwide round-the-clock operation, "Follow the Sun," where three locations in Japan, Europe, and the Americas will each perform security monitoring during daytime hours by utilizing the time difference between the three time zones. The creation of this new SOC in the United States follows that of Infosec Austria GmbH in Austria in October of last year.

NEC and Infosec America, Inc. also plan to cultivate relationships with locally based corporate partners possessing cutting-edge security technologies and to conduct marketing activities aimed at the provision of solutions integrating cyber and physical security technologies.

"NEC is devoting resources to the development of Solutions for Society, with a particular focus on strengthening the security field, including cyber security, as a core element of its global growth strategy," said Kazuhiko Shiraishi, General Manager, National Security Solutions Division, NEC Corporation. "Going forward, NEC will continue contributing to the realization of a safe, secure and affluent society by providing products and services that help strengthen security."
