e-Cop.net Surveillance Sdn Bhd has gained new advantage over its competitors in providing e-security consultancy services after receiving the British Standards Institute BS 7799 certification.
It is the first company in Malaysia to achieve this.
When an organisation seeks out an info-security services provider, they must be convinced that the provider is doing it right. The BS 7799 certification offers that assurance and ensures e-Cop meets the exacting standards, said its chief executive officer Alan See.
e-Cop.net is the first Internet security services provider in the world to be awarded the BS 7799 certification.
We believe clients would choose us over our competitors for consultancy services. We are a local company with local expertise and we dont charge premium, See told a press conference in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
He said that as a vendor independent organisation, e-Cop.net would be able to tailor-make its solutions to meet specific requirements.
We develop our own software and solutions. Most of the research and development (R&D) staff members are now based in Singapore and Malaysia. We are also looking into the possibility of transferring our R&D facilities to Malaysia, See said.
e-Cop.net presently counts six major banking groups and several insurance companies in Malaysia as its clients. Its customers also include companies in the media and manufacturing industries.
Companies which process and handle data and information as their core business such as banks and insurance companies will be the first movers towards adopting best practices framework in managing information security systems, See said.
He revealed that e-Cop.net had recently done a gap analysis for a financial institution to help improve its clients current information security procedures to comply with internationally accepted best practices framework.
In addition to the Internet security surveillance system, the company also provides enterprise-wide security management, anti-web defacement and security device management.
