Proficio Launches Next-Generation Managed Security Services in Asia and Opens Singapore SOC and Regional HQ

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. Proficio has appointed Alex Tok, as Managing Director of Proficio Asia. Alex is a senior executive with many years of experience running IT businesses in the region.

"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. "However, traditional approaches to security monitoring are no longer effective in accurately identifying critical security threats in a changing cyber security landscape. Proficio's ProSOC service is the only next-generation SOC-as-a-Service that provides true actionable intelligence and proactive defense."

"I am excited to be joining Proficio at this pivotal time in the company's growth," said Alex Tok, Managing Director, Proficio Asia. "Proficio is a leader in bringing next-generation cloud-based security to the mid-market and our unique combination of advanced technology and an affordable service model is ideally suited to the needs of the local market."
