The Kudelski Group has announced the launch of Kudelski Security, its new cyber security division.

The Kudelski Security offering consists of a set of services initially focusing on assisting companies to assess risk and vulnerabilities in order to ensure privacy and confidentiality of their data and analytics as they move their business processes and applications in a cloud-dependent ecosystem. The offer will include monitoring the evolution of the threats and keeping consumer data secured, while access to data becomes more dynamic and mobile, through new consumer devices like smartphones and tablets.

Kudelski Security goes beyond a pure technology security offering, the company says, by combining technological know-how and legal expertise, compliance, field investigation and crisis communication into a new type of global cyber alert response squad. The division's global reach and multi-disciplinary incident response is reinforced by strategic international partnerships.

The Kudelski Security core team now stands at 80 dedicated security experts with field-proven electronic defence and response capabilities and the company plans to expand this team progressively. The Kudelski Security team has access to over 1,000 security experts in other Kudelski Group divisions.

Kudelski Security aims to provide tailored cyber security solutions and services to enterprises, financial institutions, government administrations and the media industry.
