The new service relieves customers of the burden, challenges and costs associated with running a 24x7 security operation.
Bangalore, India, September 14, 2010: MindTree Limited, a global IT Solutions Company, today announced the launch of its Security Services practice offering expertise in Risk and Compliance, Vulnerability and Threat Management, and Managed Security Services. The new practice is designed to help customers protect against the increasing number of cyber threats, in a cost effective manner leaving them to focus on their core business.
MindTree Security Services practice focuses on mitigating customer business risks and providing practical ways to enhance compliance, control, and effectiveness by offering a full lifecycle of security services including assessment, planning and implementation, monitoring, management and training. In addition, the practice provides actionable intelligence, which can enable early decision-making and bring predictability to customers’ security systems.
“The Security landscape has shifted dramatically within the past decade as cyber threats have increased in volume, complexity and points of origin,” said Ram C Mohan, Senior Vice President and Head of the Infrastructure Management and Technical Support business unit at MindTree. “Therefore, organizations are finding it difficult to manage their security needs internally as the skill set required is hard to find and retain. Further, the cost of maintaining a 24x7 security operation can become prohibitive. We aim to make MindTree the trusted security advisor of our customers by providing a holistic solution to address today’s cyber threats.”
