Singtel announced it has expended its alliance with Akamai by becoming the world's first telco provider to have its advanced security operations centre staff certified to deliver Akamai managed security services.

The two companies teamed up last month to offer DDoS mitigation services based on Akamai's Intelligent Platform to enterprises across APAC.

Now this alliance has been expanded, with Singtel's ASOC staff trained and certified to deliver professional managed and security services for Akamai's web security portfolio in the region.

Singtel is launching the capability for Singapore enterprises first before expanding it to other regional APAC markets.

“This partnership augments our award-winning Managed Security Services by integrating our ASOC in Singapore with Akamai’s best-in-class cyber security solutions,” Singtel Group Enterprise managing director for cyber security William Woo said.

“The partnership further strengthens our existing relationship with Akamai, taking it to a new level of collaboration to reinforce Singapore as a safe business hub, and the Asia Pacific as a region which is conducive for doing business.”

Singtel operates a network of eight security operations centers across Asia, Europe and the US, including its advanced security operations center in Singapore.
