Asia's Third Global Command Centre Opens in Malaysia
Region's leading 24x7 Internet security surveillance services provider now supports Malaysian customers through a state-of-the-art facility in Kuala Lumpur
MALAYSIA, 15 AUGUST 2001 - The region’s leading 24x7 Internet security surveillance services provider, e-Cop.net announced the launch of its Global Command Centre (GCC) in Malaysia. The facility, located in Technology Park Malaysia, is the latest addition to e-Cop.net’s extensive network of GCCs offering network security support with round-the-clock monitoring, threat analysis, tracing and pro-active protection services.
e-Cop.net’s new GCC reflects our commitment to Malaysia and the region. We have invested in equipping the Global Command Centre with leading-edge technology, state-of-the-art equipment, as well as in recruiting and training highly qualified security professionals, to deliver comprehensive security solutions, said Eddie Chau, chairman of e-Cop.net Surveillance Sdn Bhd.
Focused solely on network security, e-Cop.net provides outsourced security services and consulting, allowing clients to concentrate on their core business. The Malaysian operations, an MSC-status company, is a joint venture between e-Cop.net and public listed, Ancom Berhad. The company already supports local customers in the financial services and manufacturing industries. As part of its global and 360 degree approach to securing intellectual property on the Internet, e-Cop.net views this new GCC in Kuala Lumpur as a vital component in the overall security network in the region including Singapore and Hong Kong.
Commenting on the 6,000 sq ft facility, Alan See, Chief Executive Officer, e-Cop.net Surveillance Sdn Bhd, said, we have invested significantly in developing a world class security facility that employs leading-edge monitoring and security features. We are committed to the Malaysian market as it is a big part of our regional and corporate plans.
Apart from the 24x7 monitoring and surveillance activities, the GCC also adds a new dimension to e-Cop.net’s Internet security and protection service by providing clients a legal recourse against perpetrators. With its advanced tracking and tracing capability, GCCs are able to collate documentary proof of hacking activities that assist in escalating the response to legal authorities and offer clients an option to initiate legal proceedings.
Heavily secured, the GCC has the most advanced equipment, including uninterrupted power supply system (UPS), FM200 fire suppression system, computer room air-conditioning (CRAC) units, card access and biometric access systems, CCTV surveillance systems and intrusion alarms. The network of GCCs does not have a single point of failure and have built-in redundancies, so should a GCC fail, other GCCs located globally provide back-up support. e-Cop.net also has GCCs located in Singapore and Hong Kong.
New hacking and intrusion techniques are being developed constantly. Organisations who undertake network security tasks in-house are faced with challenges such as constantly upgrading their technology, infrastructure and training personnel to meet new cyber threats, shared See. He added, with the local GCC in place, e-Cop.net is now ready to offer a wider, more comprehensive network security service to help Malaysian companies succeed on the global stage.
According to leading IT analysts META Group, managed security services provided by outsourced security consulting firms are expected to be one of the hottest areas in technology for the next 3 years. Eddie Chau, chairman of e-Cop.net Surveillance Sdn Bhd added, we are indeed pleased to announce that the GCC in Malaysia is up and running. This is a positive indication that e-Cop.net is positioned to offer pro-active protection to Malaysian organisations.
