AIMS-IBM PART­NER­SHIP

AIMS Group to Pro­vide IBM’s Man­ages Se­cu­rity Ser­vices to Malaysian Cus­tomers

HWM (Malaysia) - - SMB -

Last month, AIMS Group (AIMS) an­nounced that they will be pro­vid­ing IBM’s range of high qual­ity Man­aged Se­cu­rity Ser­vices (MSS) in Malaysia. This was a re­sult of their re­cent agree­ment with IBM.

“Ac­cord­ing to a Ponemon In­sti­tute study in 2013, a busi­ness could lose as much as US$136 per lost record of data in the event of a cy­ber-se­cu­rity breach. How­ever, en­ter­prise-level se­cu­rity can be too costly or hard to man­age for an SME (Small and Medium En­ter­prise), which is why AIMS has teamed up with IBM to ad­dress this need,” said Chiew Kok Hin, CEO of AIMS Group.

He added that with the new part­ner­ship, AIMS’ clients will be able to se­lect a man­aged se­cu­rity ser­vice that suits their busi­ness IT re­quire­ments and not have to in­vest in per­son­nel or se­cu­rity in­fra­struc­ture, opt­ing for a one-stop ser­vice provider to man­age their se­cu­rity in­fra­struc­ture and se­cu­rity poli­cies.

Ac­cord­ing to AIMS, with MSS, cus­tomers will not only have world-class en­ter­prise­level se­cu­rity, but can ex­pect to save up to 50 per­cent on the op­er­a­tion costs that an in-house se­cu­rity de­ploy­ment and man­age­ment will typ­i­cally cost.

With the IBM Se­cu­rity Frame­work, AIMS will de­liver the new Man­aged Se­cu­rity Ser­vices us­ing a cloud-based Vir­tual Se­cu­rity Op­er­a­tions Cen­ter (VSOC). This plat­form pro­vides cus­tomers full con­trol and mon­i­tor­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties over their se­cu­rity en­vi­ron­ment.

This will lead to re­duced costs and added sim­plic­ity, bet­ter risk man­age­ment with greater vis­i­bil­ity and se­cu­rity in­tel­li­gence, man­aged and mon­i­tor­ing ser­vices de­liv­ered through proven pro­cesses, in­te­grated tech­nol­ogy, and 24/7 tech­ni­cal ex­per­tise from AIMS.
