e-Cop.net Announces New Chief Operating Officer
Appointment of Tan Bong Him signals e-Cop.net's aggressive growth plans and is in keeping with its business strategy.
SINGAPORE, 24 APRIL 2001 - The company, e-Cop.net, Asia Pacific’s leading 24x7 Internet security surveillance services provider (24x7 ISSS) announced today that Tan Bong Him has been appointed the chief operating officer. Tan will be responsible for establishing a profit-driven operational infrastructure with control over the company’s finance, administration and legal framework. Working closely with regional heads (including research & development, global operations, sales & marketing and strategic development), Tan aims to streamline the organisation as it expands into a global operation.
According to Eddie Chau, the president and chief executive officer, e-Cop.net, the impressive progress e-Cop.net has achieved in Singapore since its inception almost a year ago has led to its position as the region’s leading 24x7 Internet Security Surveillance Service Provider. As we looked to build our management team to prepare for the next stage of our growth, we sought a candidate with the proven ability to manage and grow a global business. Tan brings over 30 years of operating experience and has held various senior executive positions in listed corporations in Singapore. Amongst them was as chief executive officer and managing director for DBS Securities Philippines, Inc and group corporate planner for Prima Limited.
Commenting on his new portfolio, said Tan, the Internet security surveillance market, with e-Cop.net at the forefront, is poised for sustained and substantial long term expansion. The company has a very sound business model with a compelling value proposition. As more organisations adapt to the changing requirements of the new economy, and online protection of intellectual properties become an increasing issue, there is a huge potential for significant global growth.
As companies worldwide grapple with Internet security issues, e-Cop.net is confident that its in-house developed CIESEH technology, proven methodology and network of law enforcement professionals, will be a compelling offering to protecting clients’ networks and intellectual property. The company has embarked on business alliances with Internet services providers, Internet Data Centres (IDCs), insurance organisations and system integrators, in addition to law enforcement professionals to deliver a comprehensive solution to the Internet security needs of customers. This, according to Chau, allows e-Cop.net to leverage the benefits inherent in such relationships and offer customers a more comprehensive security service offering. With the recent spate of highly publicised hacking and security intrusion incidents, and the continuing migration of the region’s businesses onto the e-commerce platform, the demand for e-Cop.net’s surveillance and consulting services are expected to grow exponentially.
Reiterated Eddie Chau, the Internet has developed into an indispensable tool in conducting business today. With the enormous level of information exchanged and transactions conducted on the Internet, protecting that channel against cyber threats will have to be the foremost concern to organisations
e-Cop, the TRUSTED provider of critical info-security technologies and services, helps governments and enterprises worldwide manage their info-security threats and risks.
