StarHub to help Singapore firms better defend against ransomware

·2-min read

The one-stop security solution will help companies develop stronger immunity against cyber threats.

Ransomware is no doubt a growing threat to businesses. According to the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore, 89 local ransomware cases were reported in 2020, a 154% increase from the previous year.

To help enterprises strengthen their cyber defence, StarHub has teamed up with Ensign InfoSecurity, Palo Alto Networks, and Veeam to deliver a one-stop security solution.

The StarHub CyberSecure Business Solution is a managed service that provides a suite of cyber defences for enterprises, securing network frontlines and back-end systems. It integrates crisis and incident response management, digital forensics, cloud-delivered threat detection for every system and device, and secure data backup and recovery services.

Singapore enterprises that use the solution will be able:

  • Establish advanced security defences into every device, regardless of where employees are or what internet connectivity they are on. Users are authenticated, data traffic is inspected, and threats are neutralised at the edge of the enterprise network perimeter.

  • Set up data sources, frequency of backups, and the retention period. They can quickly bring systems and applications back online to the last known good configuration, for business operations to continue with minimal disruption even if their data were accidentally deleted or held to ransom.

  • Get enhanced protection for their endpoints as the solution monitors them on a 24/7 basis to detect any malicious attack attempts.

They can also contact their StarHub Managed Service Account Managers for priority assistance in the event of a suspected ransomware attack.

Round-the-clock incident response and forensic specialists will be deployed to assist organisations in containing and eradicating the threat, assessing the impact, and identifying the root cause of the incident. These specialists will also advise organisations on regulatory matters, assist them on the fastest path to business recovery, and provide post-incident threat monitoring to prevent attack resurgence.

“[Since] increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks demand highly-responsive security strategies, [and] the number of local ransomware cases has spiked, we want to offer our customers cyber security solutions that offer maximum security and yet are simple to manage,” says Charlie Chan, chief for Enterprise Business Group at StarHub.

He continues: “Deep industry cooperation is critical to addressing threats successfully for customers. Together with Ensign InfoSecurity, Palo Alto Networks, and Veeam, we are delighted to leverage our strengths and domain knowledge to help keep Singapore businesses safe and secure.”
