The partnership provides actionable intelligence and deeper insight on the threat landscape, enabling enterprises to proactively detect and contain targeted and advanced threats
LEWES, Del., Oct. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ensign InfoSecurity (Ensign), Asia’s largest pure-play cybersecurity firm, announced today its partnership with Intel 471, a premiere cybercrime intelligence provider.
The new partnership marks another milestone in Ensign’s expansion plan in South Korea as it reinforces its footprint in the market, further strengthening its position as a leading provider of end-to-end cybersecurity solutions.
The government in South Korea, one of the region’s most digitally connected markets, recently announced a US$2.6 billion investment in hyperconnectivity and emerging technologies like cloud and blockchain. These technologies will also be rolled out in key sectors including manufacturing, healthcare, education, and the public sector1. As digitalization efforts accelerate across key industries, the digital attack surface of enterprises will continue to expand, exposing them to new vulnerabilities and cyber threats.
“With enterprises scaling up their digital initiatives, they will require more data, and richer and relevant insights to strengthen their cybersecurity strategy, and customize their cyber defences,” said General Manager Sam Goh at Ensign Korea. “To this end, we can enable South Korean organizations to shift gears and take a proactive, intelligence-led cybersecurity stance, improving their cyber resilience as they expand their digital estate.”
“As the number of cyber attacks accelerate and threat actors continue to evolve at an alarming pace, prioritized, relevant, and timely insights into the cyber underground could not be more critical for enterprises around the globe,” said Chief Executive Officer Mark Arena at Intel 471. “This partnership between Intel 471 and Ensign InfoSecurity will provide enterprises in South Korea with a growing repository of rich threat intelligence to better anticipate and make proactive decisions for threat detection and analysis, incident response and remediation.”
