Cybersecurity company Trend Micro has launched its new Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa (AMEA) headquarters in Singapore. The new office which is located at Suntec City Tower 4 and sprawled across 12,000 square feet office will house a new managed detection and response security operations center.
The center will be part of Trend Micro's MDR operations across North America, Europe, and South-east Asia. The new office also has an executive briefing center to host briefing sessions for customers and government officials in the AMEA region.
The cybersecurity company is bringing its Certification Program in IT Security to Singapore as part of its efforts to groom talent. From the second half of this year, Southeast Asian graduates from computer science majors can apply to the program.
Singapore is the perfect location for Trend Micro's regional headquarters, given the country's "strong vision for cybersecurity for the next 10 years" and diverse talent pool, said Dhanya Thakkar, AMEA vice-president at Trend Micro.
“With Singapore serving as the command post, we hope to foster closer collaboration between different teams in AMEA, serve our regional customers better, and tap into unexplored growth opportunities the region has to offer," he said in a press statement.
