Chennai (IANS): Tata Communications Ltd on Thursday launched its cybersecurity response centre (CSRC) here and will come up with one such centre each in Europe and the US in future, a senior company official said.
The new CSRC was inaugurated here by Rama Vedashree, CEO, Data Security Council of India, and Srinivasan C.R., Chief Digital Officer, Tata Communications.
"The Chennai centre will work on cloud security for medium to large corporates. We had said in 2016 that an investment of $50 million will be made in the CSRCs. We are building CSRCs in Europe and the US also," Srinivasan told the media here.
He said that globally the business has about 300 people, with 200 more to be added.
Tata Communications earlier had CSRCs in Pune, Dubai and Singapore.
The flagship CSRC here will act as an experiential showcase for Tata Communications' managed security services. The centre has interactive visual walls, dashboard displays, 3D object recognition and a Virtual Reality experience that gives a taste of company's offering in this field.
Officials said Tata Communications offers cybersecurity as a managed service.
According to Srinivasan, 99 percent of customers do not know how to respond to a cyber attack and the company helps them out to protect their data.
He said that the probability of cyber attacks on an organisation increases when it is about to launch something significant.
"The cyber attack threat landscape is increasing globally. The growth rate in cybersecurity business is far greater than what is seen in the Information Technology sector," Vedashree said.
