Tokyo – Verizon Business is supporting Japan’s FUJIFILM Holdings and its subsidiaries to strengthen its global cybersecurity monitoring and cyber intelligence capabilities. As part of the ongoing transformation of Fujifilm’s IT infrastructure, the company’s technology teams will now have access to the capabilities of Verizon’s Advanced Security Operations Center (SOC) in Canberra, Australia.
Fujifilm’s network and security experts across the Asia-Pacific, Europe and US regions will be able to leverage daily threat intelligence feeds from the Verizon Threat Research Advisory Center (VTRAC) as well as the availability of local language security engineers and analysts who will monitor the company’s remote global environments on a 24/7/365 basis. Fujifilm’s SOC deployment will reach a critical milestone in creating a cloud-centric infrastructure architecture by adopting a zero-trust security framework.
According to Verizon’s 2022 Data Breach Investigations Report, the risks of external threats continue to grow. Of particular concern is the rise in ransomware breaches, fueled by organized crime, which rose by 13 percent in a single year, representing a greater increase than the past five years combined.
Founded in 1934, Fujifilm was best known for producing some of the industry’s most revered film and photographic equipment. Today, with more than 75,000 employees worldwide, the company has successfully reinvented itself to become a company that continues to grow in healthcare, materials, business innovation and imaging. Fujifilm adopted its “DX (Digital Transformation)” vision in 2021 with the aim of further promoting DX to provide products and services of even greater quality than ever before, dramatically increasing the value the company provides to customers while continuing to work towards solving social problems. the issues.
Sampath Sowmyanarayan, CEO for Verizon Business Group said, “Fujifilm is one of the most admired companies in the world that has shown what can be achieved through digital disruption. One of the byproducts for businesses accelerating into an increasingly digitized world is that they generate large amounts of network data. As a result, there is a greater need to secure this data using advanced threat hunting tools to mitigate any potential malicious activity.”
Verizon processes over 27 trillion security events annually through nine Security Operations Centers around the globe, six forensics labs and one of the largest IP networks in the world. Additional information on Verizon’s Advanced Security Operations Services can be found here.
