Singapore, July 22, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - Proficio, a leading provider of next-generation managed security services, today announced that it is expanding into Asia and opening a Security Operations Center (SOC) and Regional Headquarters in Singapore.

"Singapore fosters a culture of excellence in every aspect of corporate governance and this applies particularly to cyber security," said Tim McElwee, COO and Chairman of Proficio.
