Cybersecurity Company Recognised for Technological Innovation in Australian Market
SAN JOSE, Calif. and CANBERRA, Australia – Jan. 29, 2017 – Dtex Systems™, a leader in user behaviour intelligence and insider threat detection, announced today that the company was awarded the Australian American Chamber of Commerce (AACC) Innovation Award for its commitment to improving cybersecurity infrastructure in Australia. The AACC Innovation Awards honour organisations and individuals with connections to Australia that advance the environment and culture for innovation in the country, have a proven impact in their market and consistently demonstrate excellence in operations and achievement.
Now headquartered in Silicon Valley, Dtex originally launched in Australia to allow organisations to identify and combat risks born from unpredictable behaviour and insider threats with its Advanced User Behaviour Intelligence Platform. The company was recognised by the AACC for the impact of this solution on cybersecurity strategy – which combines endpoint-based user visibility with lightweight data collection and adaptive analytics to detect and fight data breaches, insider threats and outsider infiltration without impacting privacy or performance.
‘Recognition by the AACC is a testament to Dtex’s strengthened efforts in Australia to ensure global organisations are equipped with the visibility and intelligence needed to detect and prevent data breaches,’ said Christy Wyatt, CEO at Dtex Systems. ‘We are devoted to working with government organisations and enterprise customers to deliver advanced user behaviour intelligence capabilities that fill in the gaps in security strategy and mitigate threats before critical loss occurs.’
Recognising Australia’s commitment to security and the government’s AU$230 million investment in enhancing the country’s cybersecurity capabilities, in 2017 Dtex revitalized its presence in the country by re-launching its official Australian office and naming it the company’s regional headquarters for APAC under the leadership of company co-founder and CTO Mohan Koo. In addition to the regional headquarters, Dtex opened two Centres of Excellence: an R&D Centre in Adelaide and a Customer Command Centre in Canberra.
‘I am thrilled to bring Dtex back to its Australian roots and to be on the ground contributing to efforts to not only better our product, but to help make Australia a central hub for cybersecurity specialists and fill a global skills shortage that is leaving sensitive data held by governments and private companies at risk,’ Koo said.
Dtex’s other efforts in the region include hosting Australia’s first ‘Defence Industry Cyber Challenge’ in partnership with AustCyber in September 2017, the establishment of a partnership with Delv to further support the Australian government’s cybersecurity efforts and delivering enterprise wide security projects for some of Australia’s largest financial and telco organisations to provide executives and teams across the business with actionable business intelligence that helps protect company IP and reduce costs.
‘We look forward to continuing to expand our connections and business throughout Australia and APAC,’ Wyatt said. ‘We are committed to charting a leading role in assisting the government and cybersecurity community to build the foundation for a secure future in the region.’
