The money will be used to build infrastructure, recruit people and to train them into security experts.

This initiative is part of the overall cyberdefence strategy that SingTel has envisaged in the modern threat environment.

The strategic partnership between SingTel and FireEye promises to enhance the cyber security eco-system in Asia Pacific and will cover:

  • Significant investments related to new Advanced Security Operation Centres (ASOCs) in Singapore and Australia.
  • The launch of the first SingTel Managed Defence solution powered by FireEye in APAC.
  • Building up cyber security expertise, including training up to 150 professionals to operate the ASOCs.
  • Setting up new data stores in the region.
  • Increasing awareness and knowledge of next generation cyber threats through the biannual APAC-focused threat advisory reports by SingTel and FireEye.
