TM ONE executive VP and CEO Ahmad Taufek Omar said the collaboration would enable it to offer end-to-end products and solutions that enhance digital lifestyle and provide complete business solutions.

“With TM ONE Cyber Security Defence Centre (CYDEC), TM ONE is well primed to empower and accelerate the Malaysia Digital Economy Blueprint (MyDigital) agenda and provide cyber resiliency through connectivity, cloud, data centres and cybersecurity,” he said.

TM ONE CYDEC is a fully managed security services provider that offers real-time visibility via predictive protection across private and public networks.

This is provided by G-CSOC, a 24/7 monitoring centre of cyber threats with active cyber defence and global cyber threat intelligence.

It is a complete suite of security services that brings multiple benefits including protection of brand and reputation, online fraud and minimising business disruptions.
