SINGAPORE – M1 Limited (M1) today announced partnerships with leading security companies to offer a comprehensive suite of enterprise-grade managed corporate cyber security solutions.

The digital economy is transforming businesses, both small and large, which leverage the power of technology to drive innovation and productivity. As attack vectors continue to grow, the sheer number of connected devices in the world presents an unprecedented opportunity for cyber criminals to exploit weaknesses in companies’ security posture for illegitimate gains.

To help strengthen customers’ defences against increasingly sophisticated threats, M1 is working with leading security companies to offer cloud-based enterprise-grade managed, flexible and cost-effective next-generation security solutions.

One of the key offerings available through M1 Cyber Security Solutions Suite is the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform, which includes a next-generation firewall and threat intelligence cloud, enabling M1 customers to safely use applications and prevent both known and unknown threats. The Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform enables M1 customers to most efficiently and effectively adopt a prevention-oriented security posture to best protect their internal assets and safely enable critical operations that rely on the use of applications.

Proficio’s 24/7 Security Operations Centre network monitoring service and Red Sentry’s vulnerability scanning and assessment service further enhances the solution to proactively detect and shut down cyber attacks, including against “zero-day” threats.

The new offerings, showcased at the M1-Palo Alto Networks Cyber Security Conference at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel today, are available immediately. These new solutions complements M1’s existing “Internet clean pipe” service that blocks distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks and offers superior protection to managed on-premise firewall services, giving customers layered, comprehensive end-to-end protection against cyber threats.

“Today’s digital economy offers incredible opportunities for our businesses. As a champion of business connectivity solutions, M1 partnered leading security companies to make available their solutions to our customers through M1 Cyber Security Solutions Suite,” said Mr Willis Sim, Chief Corporate Sales and Solutions Officer, M1.

“We will continue to leverage our unique position to further strengthen our capabilities and solutions and deliver relevant security solutions that meet our customers’ needs, giving them the peace of mind to charge ahead knowing their network is defended by the very best security solutions.”

“In the face of increasingly sophisticated attacks, organisations must adopt a breach prevention-minded security approach to protect our way of life in the digital age. This collaboration with M1 will deliver a powerful combination of technologies to help companies in Singapore expand the visibility and enforcement needed to safely enable applications and prevent threats across their organisations,” said Mr Sean Duca, Vice President and Chief Security Officer, Asia Pacific, Palo Alto Networks.

“Proficio is experiencing triple digit growth year over year by providing highly accurate, 24×7 security monitoring, alerting and management, advanced threat detection, protection, and automated response services. We’ve amassed a team of industry leaders and experts in our global Security Operations Centers to accommodate that rapid growth and scale of our customers. We are thrilled to be partnering with M1 to deliver our world-class Security-as-a-Service solutions to the Singapore market. Together, we help defend businesses against advanced cyber attacks as well as insider threats,” said Mr Tim McElwee, President and Co-Founder at Proficio.

“We are delighted to partner M1 as their Cyber Advisory and Consultancy partner to enhance the cyber security of their corporate clients. Our alliance with M1 allows us to leverage on our partner’s established brand in Singapore’s connectivity market and vast corporate customer base. With Red Sentry’s strong product expertise and 16-year track record, we are confident that this will be the start of a mutually beneficial alliance for both companies,” said Mr Paul Lim, Chief Executive Officer of SGX-Listed Secura Group Limited. Red Sentry is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Secura Group.
