DXC Technology makes move to combat Asian cyber security threats

DXC Technology has announced the inauguration of its DXC Next Generation Security Operations Centre (SOC) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The company said the Malaysia-based SOC "helps strengthen and enhance overall security of enterprises by integrating advanced security analytics across information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) to provide better visibility, correlation and response to security threats and vulnerabilities".


“While digital transformation delivers business value, it can also introduce security risks,” said Mark Hughes, senior vice president and general manager, security, DXC Technology.

“DXC security’s end-to-end portfolio of advisory services and managed security helps clients draw out a competitive niche by building security into the fabric of applications, infrastructure and culture to help enable large-scale digital change.” 

The centre is considered next generation as it integrates DXC Intelligent Security Operations, which provides "expertise in advanced analytics, digital forensics, investigations and incident response and tailored solutions to protect the digital enterprise".

“In the digital era, technology can sometimes be disruptive. The scope of technology risk management is continuously expanding. A greater focus on a proactive approach to data and client protection, coupled with high-quality incident management solutions, can guide stakeholders in the event of a cyber attack,” said Koushik Radhakrishnan, vice president and general manager, DXC Asia.

“DXC is a leader in risk management and cyber security globally and has invested in the Malaysia SOC to ensure alignment with the strategic investments for our clients in the region.” 

Multidisciplinary teams at the SOC specialise in services such as:

  • Identity and access management;
  • Data loss prevention;
  • Security device management;
  • Digital forensics;
  • Threat intelligence;
  • Threat monitoring; and
  • Incident response.

DXC has global security operation centres across five continents, employing over 3,500 professionals across more than 70 countries.
