The two companies signed a memorandum of understanding to provide cybersecurity services for Japan’s businesses on February 26, 2021.
“FPT Software is very excited to work with Mitsui to address the growing demand for cybersecurity solutions in Japan. Here we have assembled a young and experienced team that can cater to various customers’ needs. FPT Software also looks forward to collaborating with Mitsui to expand our business globally. I believe we could achieve great things in the future,” said FPT Software Chairman Chu Thanh Ha.
According to a recent report by IBM Security, Japan reported the highest number of cyber-attacks in the Asia Pacific region in 2020. Local enterprises, therefore, have been urged to step up prevention measures.
In recent years, FPT Software has actively ramped up research and innovation efforts to strengthen its cybersecurity capabilities. In 2020, the company launched akaSafe, a cloud security compliance product, helping customers in various domains including healthcare, automotive manage risks and build cyber resilience. It also formed a new business unit dedicated to providing cyber security assurance services earlier this month.
