Thailand’s Samart Collaborates with IBM on Cybersecurity Solutions

At the IBM Think Thailand 2019 held in Bangkok on August 28th, 2019, tech companies across the country gathered to discuss technologies that are changing the business landscape, from artificial intelligence (AI), cloud systems, and blockchain

Among the speakers was President of Samart Corporation, Watchai Vilailuck, who spoke about the company’s partnership with IBM to develop a cutting-edge cybersecurity solution.

Tackling Security Issues of Digital Transformation

Watchai revealed that with businesses undergoing digital transformations and the greater use of big data, corporations are more exposed to cyber threats. To address this risk, Samart has been working with multinational tech giant IBM to introduce SECUREiNFO, a comprehensive cybersecurity solutions service.

“With SECUREiNFO, we are establishing a Cyber Security Operation Center or CSOC for the first time in Thailand,” said Watchai. “I believe that this system will help us to greatly enhance the efficiency of cybersecurity services.”

Keeping Clients Safe with Artificial Intelligence

Watchai explained that CSOC comprises three main parts: experienced professionals in the field, monitoring clients 24 hours a day; a standardized process that encompasses the four steps of identify-detect-respond-improve, in order to provide the highest levels of security to clients; and the technology called Watson, a cybersecurity AI developed by IBM that will analyze all relevant data to improve the way cyber threats are managed.

In 2018, companies around the world spent over US$100 billion on cybersecurity systems. In Thailand alone, the industry is expected to be worth US$240 million, with experts projecting annual growth of 12%.
