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.

"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.

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.
