NTT Announce Formation of MSSP
NTT has announced the formation of NTT Security Corporation, a specialized security company to deliver Managed Security Services (MSS) and specialized security expertise.
Delivered through NTT operating companies globally, it combines the security expertise of NTT Com Security, Solutionary, Dimension Data, NTT Innovation Institute and NTT Communications.
“Through aligning its investments, NTT will accelerate its security value proposition with cutting edge technologies and services powered by global threat intelligence allowing clients to take full advantage of an integrated approach to security solutions as part of a wider set of technology services,” the company said in a statement. “These services will be taken to market globally, and client engagement will be managed by the NTT operating companies Dimension Data, NTT Communications and NTT Data.”
The company will be led by Representative Director and President, Chief Executive Officer Jun Sawada and Frank Brandenburg will be director and COO.
Speaking to Infosecurity, Duncan Brown, research director of the European Security Practice at IDC, said: “I think this is long overdue. The various entities have different organizations, staff, structures, focus areas and geographic coverage. It’s confusing for the market and customers. Combining the multiple pieces of NTT into one coherent entity makes sense for everyone. It means that NTT will be able to compete more effectively against other security players.”
