Expands Reach into Sri Lanka and Vietnam
ST Engineering’s DigiSAFE DiskCrypt M10 has received the CES 2019 Innovation Award (Cybersecurity and Personal Privacy category) for its outstanding product design and engineering. The DigiSAFE DiskCrypt M10 is the world’s first ultra-slim encrypted data storage with two-factor authentication and hardware-based full disk encryption. Developed by ST Engineering Electronics’ Cybersecurity business, the product enables highly secured data transfer within organisations, government agencies and critical infrastructures.
“It is an honour to be recognised globally as a leading developer of innovative technologies. Our ability to be deeply attuned with the global threat landscape and respond with innovative solutions that help global clients has enabled us to stay ahead in the fast-evolving cybersecurity industry. Our deep engineering expertise and indigenous capabilities give us the edge to enhance customer satisfaction, gain market share and win in a highly competitive marketplace,” commented President of the Cyber Security Systems Group, Electronics, ST Engineering, Lau Thiam Beng.
The DigiSAFE range of products and solutions has been gaining traction in new markets. The DigiSAFE Data Diode solution will be deployed for Electricity of Vietnam, the country’s largest power company, in a pilot programme, and was selected over several global competing solutions. DigiSAFE Data Diode protects the control systems of industrial sectors and critical infrastructure such as transportation, energy and water treatment. The one-way data transmission solution enables the secure transfer of data from industrial control systems to corporate IT networks.
DigiSAFE is part of a suite of cyber security solutions developed by ST Engineering. An additional area in which the Group has an edge is the development of Security Operation Centres (SOC), having successfully designed, built and operated up to 13 in Singapore and the region. In addition, it helped establish the design of Sri Lanka’s National SOC, completed in December 2017. It is now working with a leading Sri Lankan provider of integrated ICT and security solutions to deliver an SOC for the Bank of Ceylon, which will enable the bank to build a more protected security posture, as Sri Lanka’s financial institutions move into the cashless and interconnected space.
