A new partnership between Cyware and CyberQ Group will strengthen cybersecurity capabilities in the Asia Pacific region, the companies jointly announced June 30.

Cyware is a provider of platform-agnostic Cyber Fusion Centers with next-gen SOC (NG-SOC) capabilities. CyberQ Group is cybersecurity services provider with locations in the UK, US and Philippines, according to its LinkedIn profile. Established in 2016, CyberQ Group specializes in taking global organizations from a reactive, technology-based approach to embedding cyber protection at the very core of their organization.

CyberQ joins a group of solution providers, MSSPs and systems integrators in the Cyware Technology Partner Program — helping customers make smarter decisions and minimize risk, a prepared statement said.

Partnership Delivers Advantage to MSSPs

Cyware’s Cyber Fusion and Collective Defense solutions for MSSPs will help CyberQ deliver advanced managed security services that enable customers to combine, analyze and autonomously share threat intelligence while improving threat response collaboration.

CyberQ will leverage Cyware’s modular cyber fusion center technology platform to deliver client-centric customized security services that involve:

  • Real-time contextual alerting
  • Vendor-agnostic orchestration gateway
  • Threat management workflows for cloud-based and on-premise environments

Cyware and CyberQ = Strength in Numbers

Gary C Tate, Cyware vice president of sales for the Asia Pacific and Japan, put the partnership in perspective:

“The global threat landscape is fierce, which combined with a shortage of cyber professionals creates a perfect storm. Increasingly, organizations are finding it challenging to build a mature cybersecurity posture with their in-house capabilities. Together, CyberQ Group and Cyware will bring advanced threat investigation, triaging and alerting capabilities to enterprises and government bodies. Cyware’s next-gen cyber fusion solutions, along with the expertise of CyberQ, will help bring together siloed security operations, operationalize threat data more efficiently and enable threat response collaboration.”

Roberto Tayag, CyberQ CEO for Asia Pacific, detailed the imperative for the partnership:

“Assumptions made on cyber and data security are constantly challenged by IT leaders and industry movers and shakers. With such a high level of scrutiny, we are driven to maintain our cyber solutions as breach-free. Over the years, we have developed a sterling reputation as the benchmark standard for preventing data breaches, speed of response and restoring systems that organizations measure themselves against. And now we are more than thrilled to bring these standards to the Asia Pacific, especially the Philippines. With our partnership with Cyware, we have not only enhanced our existing services but also added advanced services that will truly differentiate our customer offerings.”

Cyware’s Market Advantage

Cyware notes that its Cyber Fusion Center platform delivers an integrated, automated and modular solution for bi-directional threat intelligence sharing, comprehensive case and workflow management and unified orchestration and automation. It allows MSSPs to offer small, mid-market and large enterprises unparalleled security services, including Cyber Fusion-as-a-Service, Threat Intelligence Platform-as-a-Service, Threat Intelligence-as-a-Service and Threat Hunting Services.
