TOKYO, February 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

NTT Com Group, incorporating NTT Communications (NTT Com) , Integralis AG and
Secode AB and in cooperation with NTT Secure Platform Laboratories , today
announces that it is launching a security-information event-management (SIEM)
technology to provide enhanced detection and analysis of security risks,
including targeted attacks for organizations worldwide.

The spread of smartphones and tablets, plus the advances in cloud technologies
have enabled seamless IT environments to be created worldwide. At the same
time, however, increased security risks, such as unauthorized access, viruses
and information leaks, have become acute problems requiring urgent solutions
for diverse Information and Communications Technology (ICT) environments.

The new SIEM technology detects risks through advanced automatic correlation
analysis and evaluates risk levels automatically. It incorporates NTT Secure
Platform Laboratories' advanced technologies designed to detect attacks
through long-term log monitoring, and a blacklist generation engine that
efficiently finds malicious sites; as well as a comprehensive security
information database.

Akira Arima, CEO at NTT Communications, said: "Our investment in SIEM across
worldwide NTT Com data centers is the first step in our global Managed
Security Services vision. By driving new services in the data center, NTT Com,
with our security arms Integralis and Secode will ultimately be able to filter
these into the enterprise customer environment; supporting them with common
process and intelligence which allows a "secure path to the cloud".

"The SIEM technology will serve as a universal security service platform
enabling the NTT Com Group to offer more thorough services for region-specific
risks. We will also advise customers on risk prediction and available
countermeasures based on risk information shared among Group members," he
continued.

Simon Church, CEO, Integralis AG, commented: "With the ongoing focus on
security from NTT Com, we are continuing to make significant investment in our
services, technology and skilled teams globally that provide customers with
the risk management and IT security services they need in order to develop and
transform their businesses."

Church continued, "The introduction of the SIEM technology as part of a
Managed Security Service, changes the way we deliver security analysis and
risk information to our customers. Remote device management is essential in
modern organizations. However, taking the information from these devices, and
providing contextual analysis to the business so that they can make informed
decisions around their risk and security profile is crucial, especially as the
threat landscape is continually evolving."

The NTT Com Group manages risk across its customers' Information and
Communications Technology environments based on its trusted consulting
methodology, including upgrading and continuous monitoring. This methodology
consists of analysis of governance, risk and compliance (GRC) in a corporate
environment; evaluation based on 12 benchmarks, including asset management and
compliance; comparison with average levels in the industry concerned to
determine gaps; and goal setting; improvement planning; plan implementation;
and continuous monitoring through secure operations.

By incorporating the SIEM engine with its existing offerings, such as security
risk consulting, security management systems, Managed Security Services and
Mobile Device Management Services, NTT Com Group will use the platform to
launch enhanced, total risk management services, including both comprehensive
consultation and operation, for evaluation, improvement and monitoring of any
type of security risk in customers' ICT environments.

The NTT Com Group will continue to improve its total risk management services
by expanding its lineup of security equipment and services for the new
security service platform, including the upgrading of incident detection
through correlation analysis and automatic risk-level evaluation, and the
updating of databases.

The technology will be launched as a new security service platform in Japan
and the U.S. in March and later in other markets worldwide. NTT Com Group's
Security Operation Centers, which are located in Japan, the U.S., Singapore,
United Kingdom, Sweden and Norway, as well as a new location to be opened in
Malaysia, will be reorganized as Global Risk Operation Centers to offer
thorough security monitoring managed by highly skilled risk analysts.
