Building a resilient digital security

imagine Sdn Bhd has reaffirmed its commitment to strengthening its cybersecurity proposition to enterprises and government organisations in Brunei with the latest partnership with Asia’s largest pure-play cybersecurity firm, Ensign InfoSecurity (Ensign).

The collaboration will deliver Ensign’s end-to-end portfolio of cybersecurity services and solutions including cyber threat intelligence, managed detection and response (MDR), managed security services (MSS) and incident response.

CEO of imagine Suzannawati binti Haji Suharju said, “We are pleased to partner with Ensign with their strong reputation, expertise and insight into the world of cybersecurity. This is part and parcel of imagine’s contribution to Brunei Vision 2035 that calls for cooperation from all sectors in the country including the private sector to harness digitalisation efforts as we move towards becoming a Smart Nation.”

It centres upon Brunei’s Digital Economy Masterplan 2025 which includes the strengthening of the country’s cybersecurity landscape, together with the growth of digital usage that calls for the protection of data, infrastructure, and networks against growing cyber threats.

Both the government and enterprise corporations operating in the country will be provided with a diverse portfolio of options in protecting data, thus complementing the government’s continued encouragement for the use of digital tools to propel the nation forward in trade, finance and banking, healthcare, education, agriculture, tourism, energy, as well as logistics and transportation.

With cyber attacks becoming more prevalent around the world, Brunei is not immune to cybercrimes. By partnering with Ensign, imagine is now in a position to offer security as a service to government and corporate clients.

“Similar to how we protect our finances, we must now look at information security as paramount to any operations that rely on network infrastructure across multiple major industries. As a by-product of this partnership, we believe that not only will this benefit local entities, it will also attract investors into Brunei with the knowledge that our digital eco-system has the capability to keep valuable information safe and secure,” Suzannawati added.

On the partnership with imagine, Executive Vice President of International Business and Consulting at Ensign Charles Ng said Brunei is a key market for Ensign InfoSecurity in Asia Pacific, and have been investing highly capable resources to protect clients in the country for many years.

“By partnering with imagine, we hope to make available world-class cyber offerings in Brunei, and co-develop capabilities. We hope to contribute to Vision 2035 by building a more resilient digital ecosystem,” Ng added.

Ensign boasts two decades of proven track record as a trusted cybersecurity service provider across Asia Pacific. By tapping on Ensign’s in-depth experience and diverse expertise, the partnership can help organisations – across a wide range of industries in Brunei, including oil and gas, financial services, healthcare, and the public sector – adopt a more proactive cybersecurity posture.

Through Ensign’s MSS and MDR solutions, which leverage automation and contextualised cyber threat intelligence, organisations will have better visibility of their networks and endpoints, able to detect emerging threats faster, and resolve increasingly sophisticated attacks more effectively.

Ensign consulting services also enable organisations to enhance their cybersecurity maturity, and establish effective cyber defence to mitigate the evolving and emerging risks in the digital ecosystem.
