India's second-largest software services firm Infosys on Monday announced the launch of a cyber defence centre in Bucharest, Romania.
The centre is an expansion of services delivered through Infosys Digital Innovation Centre, which opened in Bucharest earlier this year. The Defence Centre will provide end-to-end, real-time, 24/7 cybersecurity monitoring and protection services to support European and global businesses on their digital transformation journey, a statement said. These services - which includes security monitoring, management and remediation, threat hunting, security analytics, incident discovery and response - will be delivered by certified and highly-skilled cyber security professionals, it added.
The services offered will be compliant with country-specific regulatory requirements. Infosys is also expanding its current team in Romania by recruiting local talent and investing in advanced training for both its current employees and new hires. It, however, did not disclose investment details made for these efforts.
"Every business needs to be secure by design and have a comprehensive view of the threat landscape with constant monitoring and management. Our Infosys cyber defence centres help enterprises prevent, detect and respond to advanced cyber-attacks enabling them to scale securely in their digital journey," Infosys Chief Information Security Officer and Head of Cyber Security Practice Vishal Salvi said.
