PwC has increased cyber capabilities in Singapore through an alliance with Tanium, an endpoint security and operations platform.
Leveraging the consultancy firm’s expertise in cyber security and digital transformation, the partnership is designed to help businesses gain “near real-time” endpoint visibility in the local market.
Headquartered in California, Tanium specialises in incident response and endpoint security and management, with key customers including Target, Phillips 66 and Barclays, in addition to the US Navy, Ingram Micro and Colliers International.
In providing “accurate endpoint data”, the platform will help Singapore-based businesses manage cyber threats across laptops, servers, virtual machines, containers and cloud infrastructure.
“We are proud to be working with Tanium to enhance our capabilities as PwC as we bring cyber threat hunting into our suite of service offerings,” said Tan Shong Ye, digital trust leader of PwC Singapore. “Tanium’s technology, coupled with the breadth of industry expertise of our cybersecurity practice, will empower organisations to better assess, identify and manage the threats and vulnerabilities they face on a daily basis.”
Backed by improved endpoint visibility, Tan said organisations will also be able to better manage procurement and compliance of licences, as well as enhance governance of data stored in endpoints.
“PwC has been a valued partner of Tanium for over five years and we are thrilled to expand our partnership across Singapore,” added Tom Herrmann, vice president of global alliances and channel at Tanium.
“This is an important step in our relationship together, as it means that our work is now truly global - giving us coverage across North America, Europe and Asia. Our technology, coupled with the industry expertise from PwC, will continue to provide our customers with the power to manage cyber threats and gain a comprehensive overview of their endpoints."
Herrmann sad PwC’s "breadth of expertise" in digital transformation will provide any organisation seeking to adopt Tanium with end-to-end support across competencies such as change management, up-skilling, best practices, governance frameworks and technology implementation.
“For any system adoption to be successful, organisations must keep in mind that the investment is not just in the technology - it includes training the people and ironing out the processes surrounding the use of the system,” said Freddy Wee, cyber security and privacy leader of South East Asia Consulting at PwC. “Working together with Tanium, we are confident that we can help organisations successfully optimise endpoint management and fulfil their security objectives.”
