Formerly known as F-Secure Business, WithSecure is on a mission to accelerate enterprises transition to ‘outcome-based security’.
WithSecure regional director (Asia-Pacific) Yong Meng Hong said that the company will continue to utilise F-Secure’s 34 years of proven expertise and technological innovation to help organisations connect security to their business.
“WithSecure is now accelerating towards an outcome-based security approach in which we work with organisations to determine best in which cybersecurity priorities are the most prominent areas to invest. This is done via a combination of our technology and human/partner excellence and enables them to see what the impact is in a business context,” said Yong.
“Additionally, as the new name reflects, WithSecure’s Co-security mindset will improve security capabilities, competencies and culture through good partnership. We are dedicated to working closely with clients and partners to ensure security investments provide more benefits to organizations than simply acquiring a new service or technology.”
Yong explained that the company’s objectives comprise five main thrusts:
• Focusing on protecting business, business goals, business continuity, and business transformation projects.
• Speeding up business and ensuring that it can scale easily and securely through cloudification.
• Customers’ business will grow and function as it should because your sales team is accessing all of the data that it needs, when they need it.

• Building a security outcome portfolio that provides synergies of human expertise, operational excellence and instinctive technology.
“Our mission is to research, innovate and build technologies, human expertise and delivery-business models that will accelerate our customers’ and partners’ transition to outcome-based security,” said Yong.
