NTT Security Announces Expansion of Advanced Security Services into Thailand
SINGAPORE, Jan.15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NTT Security, the specialized security company of NTT Group, has announced expansion into Thailand as part of its strategic growth plan. It will provide Managed Security Services (MSS) and specialized Professional Security Services based on its strength in Global Threat Intelligence and Cyber Threat Advanced Analytics accumulated through global operations. This will enable more effective and sophisticated cybersecurity solutions for Thailand enterprises and governments as well as global companies which have business operations in the region.
The services will be taken to market through the NTT Group companies of Dimension Data, NTT Communications and NTT DATA, forming part of its suite of integrated services to enable successful digital transformation initiatives for its clients.
"Our Managed Security Services with expert security analysts and proprietary analytics platform powered by Global Threat Intelligence have been providing strong Threat Detection and Hunting capabilities to NTT customers worldwide. We are delighted to be expanding the availability of our advanced security services. NTT Security together with NTT Group companies will provide cyber resilience to secure digital transformation of organizations in Thailand," said Jun Sawada, CEO of NTT Security.
Martin Schlatter, CIO and Regional CEO for NTT Security in APAC adds, "Thailand's economy has great potential, occupying the 2nd largest GDP following Indonesia in the high growth economy of ASEAN, with its annual GDP set to grow to 3.329% in 2018 (and 3.357% in 2019). It has developed a global reputation for growth within the manufacturing and exporting of goods and services within the automotive and electronics sectors. Thailand is now working on shifting to high value-added manufacturing and growing the service industry. However, with this growth, comes an increase in targeted cyber attacks, particularly those aimed at manufacturers for their intellectual property. This, in turn, creates demand for cybersecurity services from specialised security companies such as NTT Security."
NTT Security's Global Threat Intelligence Report (GTIR) reveals manufacturing as one of the top three industries to be heavily targeted in five of the six geographic regions. In Asia alone, manufacturing is the second most targeted industry (32%), trailing closely behind finance. The region is therefore feeling the impact of having significant manufacturing capabilities and, like its Asian counterparts, companies in Thailand are not immune from attacks and face a variety of threats.
According to NTT Security's Global Threat Intelligence Center (GTIC), Thailand ranked 19th in hosting command and control servers used to remotely send commands to a botnet, with over 9% of all botnets attempting to talk back to servers in Thailand. In fact, Asia was a major contributor to the Mirai botnet used to conduct one of the largest Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks.
Schlatter adds, "Asian businesses are failing on a large scale to adequately secure their endpoints, and there is no question that cyber criminals are looking to capitalize on this. It's therefore increasingly important to embed security solutions and processes into the very fabric of the business. If compromised, corporate devices participating in such attacks may be blacklisted, damaging the organization's reputation and ability to function effectively online."
As a centre of excellence, NTT Security is committed to continued investment in the creation of innovative security services, and continues to expand its reach together with NTT Group companies, while improving its strength in Global Threat Intelligence and Advanced Analytics by collaboration with NTT R&D and alliances with technology partners.

Pittsburgh, PA, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Calgon Carbon Corporation today announced a global price increase, effective February 1, 2019, where contracts permit, on all activated carbon products and related equipment due to a continued escalation in raw material costs and transportation expenses.

Taconic Biosciences’ Animals Complete Most Recent Mission to the International Space Station17.1.2019 15:29 | Pressemelding
RENSSELAER, N.Y., Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Taconic Biosciences, a global leader in providing genetically engineered rodent model solutions, announces the completion of a recent mission to the International Space Station. This project represents a collaboration between the International Space Station (ISS) National Lab, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Bioserve Space Technologies with support from the Leidos Corporation, and Taconic. Taconic has participated in several spaceflight missions with NASA since 1985. Most recently, as part of the science and research investigation payloads supported by the SpaceX Commercial Resupply Services missions, Taconic prepared mice to live aboard the International Space Station for extended periods.

Therefore, mice exposed to microgravity via spaceflight are a valuable model to understand and devel
MPP Global Bridges the Innovation Gap by Centralising Physical and Digital Subscriber Management and Billing in a Single Cloud Platform17.1.2019 12:29 | Pressemelding
WARRINGTON, UK, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MPP Global, the technology company that delivers eSuite, the world’s smartest subscriber management & billing platform, announces the launch of pivotal new functionality which enables media organisations to seamlessly create and manage the sale of physical subscriptions. This positions eSuite as the complete physical and digital subscription management solution. The development of this industry-first functionality was borne out of the common challenge for publishers when managing multiple systems for deploying bundled print and digital subscriptions. This is inflexible for publishers and limits choice for their customers, restricting the ability to seamlessly create and offer digital and print subscription bundles. Despite increased consumer uptake of digital subscriptions, print still accounts for almost 90% of circulation revenues globally. To drive reader revenues successfully, publishers require functionality to execute complementar
