NTT Security Launches UK Cyber Security Innovation Programme
Monday, August 15, 2016New Programme to Identify Innovations that will Help Businesses Establish a Resilient Cyber Defence Architecture
NTT Security, the global information security and risk management company, has announced the launch of its Cyber Security Innovation Programme in the UK. Through the new programme, NTT Security will explore and test the evolving technology landscape, and examine how a multitude of new solutions can help organisations create sustainable and resilient cyber architectures while reducing complexity and cost.
Over 20 ambitious vendors – largely operating in machine based learning as well as isolation, deception and intelligence based solutions – have joined the Cyber Security Innovation Programme. All will be independently evaluated by security experts who will identify how the solutions can truly innovate and meet individual business needs. Furthermore, NTT Security will test the innovations in real life environments to ensure they function and deliver value in the real world as well as reduce the time and resources that businesses invest when looking at new solutions, but without compromising innovation.
Dave Polton, Chief Technology Architect at NTT Security, said: “Most businesses are striving for increased cyber confidence or capabilities, but the security product landscape is vast, complex and dynamic. This can often lead to confusion in purchasing decisions, and we have seen many organisations feel burdened with inflexible information security architectures that deliver little return on investment.
“A change in approach is therefore needed and we believe that innovation should be at the heart of the security industry. New and emerging advanced technologies can make our data more secure, but what’s critical to the success of these innovations is that more rigor is applied to an organisation’s investment decisions. We recognise that businesses want solutions that will make cyber security tasks easier and faster, and our UK Cyber Security Innovation Programme is designed to deliver the strategic planning, business context and agnostic evaluation to enable this.”
NTT Security has developed a series of free whitepapers to guide businesses through the latest in cyber security innovations. Download them here.
