MONTREAL and IRVING, Texas – November 1, 2016 – Hitachi Systems Security, and global IT security service provider, today announced the opening of its first security operations center (SOC) in the United States. The Dallas-Fort Worth area SOC expands Hitachi Systems Security’s service availability in the U.S., the world’s largest security market, and responds to the growing demand for security and risk management expertise. As the company’s fifth global SOC, Above Security’s Texas facility will help local businesses manage their risks and strengthen their security posture.
The global cybersecurity landscape is evolving at an alarming pace, with evidence of large-scale data breaches, threats and intrusions revealed regularly. Even in this environment, however, some companies still don’t realize their risk or what they can do to protect their data. Unfortunately, the IT security talent shortage contributes to this problem. Hitachi Systems Security’s new SOC addresses this challenge by offering its U.S. customer base the proximity managed security services they need to protect their data and strengthen their security posture, all while meeting strict compliance requirements.
“Our clients in more than 40 countries trust Hitachi Systems Security to bring clarity to the jungle of today’s IT security solutions,” said Ray Georges Chehata, president and CEO of Hitachi Systems Security. “The U.S. Security Operations Center builds on that experience and offers companies customized security services for monitoring and protecting the most critical IT assets in their infrastructures, 24/7.”
Located less than 5 miles from the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, the Hitachi Systems Security SOC is part of a 700,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility. In line with Hitachi Systems Security’s strict physical and logical security requirements, the facility is equipped with security fences, two-factor biometric authentication, 24/7 security guards and technical staff, as well as closed circuit interior and exterior video cameras. It is strategically located for low risk and exposure to major natural disasters.
The company will hold an invite-only grand opening event on Monday, November 14 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., where the Hitachi Systems Security and Hitachi Systems teams will meet local customers and business partners. Representatives of the Irving Chamber of Commerce and the Consulate General of Canada in Dallas will also be present.
