It will utilise the latter’s technology of monitoring wireless threats.
As it widens its cyber defenses with the establishment of Cyber Security Centre of Excellence (COE) alliance, mobile network operator StarHub tapped software company Coronet for its technology of detecting wireless threats.
Launched May this year, COE serves as a strategic hub for gearing the city-state’s cyber security ecosystem with the most renowned security groups.
As the first company to monitor the global wireless environment for threats, and automatically evaluate the risk associated with connecting to any wireless network, Coronet joins the roster of industry partners in COE alliance including Blue Coat, Cyberbit, Fortinet, Wedge Networks, Nanyang Polytechnic, Republic Polytechnic, Temasek Polytechnic, and Singapore University of Technology and Design.
According to StarHub’s Vice President of Cyber Security & Data Analytics Lim Woo Lip, this would arm its subscribers with the latest technology to prevent digital threats, as Wifi and cellular network attacks are rapidly gaining favor in hotels, airports, public places and offices.
“Their distinct technology will fortify StarHub’s offerings. With Coronet’s technology, StarHub’s customers will be confident that they are always connected to a safe network,” Lim said.
Meanwhile, Coronet CEO Guy Moskowitz echoed the same statement, saying the group’s technology would greatly help StarHub’s enterprise customers with real-time visibility to wireless threats on networks around devices.
“We look forward to collaborating and helping to advance cyber security solutions for StarHub’s COE as well as for its enterprise customers,” he stated.
