The Singapore office will help NII deliver cyber security services in the Asia Pacific region.
Network Intelligence (NII), founded in 2001 with a vision to provide world-class cybersecurity services and products to companies across various sectors, has become one of the most trusted names in the business over the past 16 years. The Mumbai-based NII already has offices in major cities of India, Dubai and USA. The Singapore office, which became operational from 15th February, 2018, will help NII deliver cyber security services in the Asia Pacific region.
With a solid presence in India, the Middle East and the USA, it was imperative for NII to enter the extremely dynamic and potential Asia Pacific region. The ISO 27001 company also has PCI DSS QSA certification, 50 seater SOC and has top clients in BFSI, Manufacturing, Oil & Gas, ITES, Ecommerce etc Mr. Yaacob Ibrahim, the Minister of Communication and Information, and Minister-in-Charge of Cybersecurity, Singapore, had mentioned early last year that the industry in Singapore was set to cross S$ 900 mn. by 2020, creating thousands of new jobs. According to another report, the Asia-Pacific cybersecurity market will breach the USD 30 bn. mark by 2020.
KK Mookhey, Founder and CEO, NII, said “Singapore, in many ways, was the logical next step for us. It is a strong, stable economy that offers a great working environment. The government strikes the fine balance between holding cybersecurity firms responsible for their job while simultaneously empowering them to work with efficiency. With its easy access to the Asia Pacific region, state-of-the-art infrastructure, the advantages of time zones and availability of trained local talent makes Singapore a great place to be. We are thrilled to finally be here and cannot wait to make our mark in the region.”
Adding to the above, Altaf Halde, Global Business Head at NII said, “We have many existing clients in the APAC region, and being in Singapore helps us in working closely with our clients and providing them much faster response time. Singapore offers us the perfect base in APAC, where there is immense potential for growth in both, the business and private sectors for cyber security. Singapore offers one of the best working environments for cyber security companies, with its high level of awareness and strict laws that are good for everyone. We look forward to our new base here, and we are confident of this leading to many great things!”
