LightCyber, a provider of Behavioral Attack Detection solutions, has opened its headquarters for Asia Pacific in Singapore and established a team for sales, marketing and technical resources.
The regional team will initially focus on Singapore, Hong Kong and Korea. LightCyber is expanding its LightCyber Channel Alliance Program (LCAP) throughout the region to equip and empower security channel partners.
LightCyber provides customers security visibility into active attacks and insider threats that otherwise circumvent conventional threat prevention infrastructure, and thereby curtails potential data breaches. Data breaches are expected to cost the global economy $2 trillion U.S. dollars over the next five years, according to an estimate by Juniper Research.
Data breaches have become commonplace throughout Asia Pacific, and only a small number of companies have the effective means to detect an attacker that is actively exploring an organization’s network to gain control of valuable assets.
According to LightCyber CEO, Gonen Fink, “Enterprises in Asia Pacific face an ever-increasing frequency of external and insider threats, with the potential of an eventual data breach, loss of intellectual property and other serious issues hanging over their heads. Last year was the wake up call. Now it’s time to make a definite shift in security to complement conventional preventative security solutions with new detection capabilities.
“With Behavioral Attack Detection, companies can find sophisticated attackers before they succeed in their objectives. We are ready to help our partners across Asia Pacific bring these solutions to market and meet pressing customer needs.”
As a part of the Asia Pacific team, Yusuke Sakurai has been appointed to lead regional product and technical selling initiatives and will work with the newly signed channel partners to establish a sales and support network. Several APAC LCAP partners have already joined, including Edvance Technology in the Singapore and Hong Kong markets as well as Ncurity in Korea.
