London based IT solutions and services provider Transputec has opened a new office in Israel to take advantage of that country’s status as a global centre of cyber-security expertise and further develop its own innovative cyber-security practice.
Historical and political factors have combined to encourage the development of world-leading cyber-security expertise in Israel, much of it stemming from the exchange of knowledge between the military and commercial sectors.
According to the National Cyber Bureau, Israel’s answer to Silicon Valley, known as Silicon Wadi, accounted for 10 percent of global security technology in 2014, and sales of its security software topped $60 billion during that year.
Transputec has already developed expertise in the cyber-security field through its use of leading-edge network monitoring solution ThreatSpike. Now it has decided to take the next step by setting up an office in Tel Aviv in order to headhunt the best cyber-security talent and develop leading-edge cyber security services.
Transputec CEO Sonny Sehgal, who is leading this project, said:
“Some of the leading cyber-security expertise in the world is based in Israel, with unparalleled experience in combating the highest level of cyber security threats aimed at commercial, government and military targets. We would like to put that vast experience to use for our commercial customers, providing them with cutting-edge cyber-security tools and solutions.
Setting up an office in Israel will allow us to tap into the global cyber-security hub that already exists in Israel, headhunt the best talent and develop new services for our customers. This field is probably the fastest moving in the whole of the tech sector and we need to keep at the forefront of it if we are to give the best service to our customers.”
