Fujitsu have recently joined hands with two U.S cyber-security companies which originate in Israel. Israel is a country known for their advanced IT skills and innovative military technology.
As the threat of cyber-security breaches increases worldwide, Fujitsu is eager to use its partner’s skills and expertise to be a step ahead of their rivals. This Japanese company wants to expand their business via this partnership and also increase their sales up to 300 billion yen on cyber defense merchandise and services by March 2020.
Fujitsu is working with a company known as Cyberreason and IntSights Cyber Intelligence. The company, Cyberreason, uses artificial intelligence to examine the performance of devices that were made a target by cyber-criminals. It also helps in finding the methods used by these cyber-criminals to detect and prevent future cyber-attacks from occurring.
The new hacking detection device includes 24-hour support from Fujitsu’s employees. Fujitsu’s other partner, IntSights Cyber Intelligence focuses on collecting data on cyber hacks in areas that are not accessible to all Internet users. Fujitsu plans on using this company’s expertise to help filter out cyber threats that their customers may face.
These services will be available from September. Companies are beginning to incorporate teleworking and cloud computing in their businesses.
Ichiro Ohama, the individual who supervises the cybersecurity business of Fujitsu says, “Various cybersecurity services exist today and what was once an advantage [for a company] could soon become a commodity.”
He added saying, “We will seek ways to distinguish our services from others by adding new value through partnerships with specialists.”
Israel is very eager to use their military technology and foster businesses as well as to apply it to the private sector. In recent years, Israel has seen significant developments in areas such as autonomous driving, and artificial intelligence.
