Integralis Launches Single Global Brand, WideAngle, and Announces Plan to
Change Name to NTT Com Security
BLOOMFIELD, Conn. -- June 20, 2013
NTT Com Group, incorporating NTT Communications (NTT Com) and Integralis AG, a
provider of global information security and risk management solutions, today
announced that Integralis intends to change its name to NTT Com Security AG.
The company has also launched WideAngle, a single global brand for its
information security and risk management portfolio of Managed and Professional
Services, expert consulting and technology products.
The change of name reflects the NTT Com Group’s continued commitment to
Integralis, including Secode, the leading Nordics-based provider of Managed
Security Services, and the Group’s intention to continue expanding its
security capabilities for global customers.
Integralis will now be able to better leverage its partnership with NTT Com as
part of a large telecoms organization, which has global reach, influence and
resources, while NTT Com will be able to continue to focus on developing
services and solutions to help businesses secure their investments in cloud,
mobile, social and collaborative technologies.
The intention to change the name from Integralis AG to NTT Com Security AG
will not involve any change in ownership of the organization. With the
exception of setting up NTT Com Security in Japan, there are no management or
other operational changes planned.
Launch of single global information security and risk management portfolio
Backed by the strength of the NTT Com Group and the security expertise of
Integralis (including Secode), the new global brand, WideAngle, will provide
customers with a holistic approach to information security and risk
Through WideAngle, NTT Com will continue to pioneer new ways of managing
information security and risk management to enable organizations to grow,
transform and differentiate their businesses confidently and securely. The new
name will allow NTT Com to continue to position itself as a ‘Trusted Advisor’
to worldwide organizations looking to manage the impact of current and new
drivers of the changing business landscape, such as big data, cloud, mobility,
social networking and BYOD.
NTT Communications and its affiliates will also adopt the WideAngle brand when
positioning their security portfolio to customers.
Integralis AG CEO, Simon Church, said: “For us, the name change makes good
business sense as the two companies become more closely aligned. We now have
the opportunity to become the industry's next information security and risk
management powerhouse, especially with recent industry acquisitions.”
“Combined with the creation of WideAngle as a single global brand, we will
present clients and partners with a truly integrated solution for all aspects
of their environment, be it cloud, mobile or a more traditional on-premise
Akira Arima, CEO at NTT Com, added: “Integralis has become an integral part of
NTT Com as our dedicated security arm over the last four years. As it becomes
part of the NTT Com brand, it means we can continue to invest in information
security skills, expertise and services, through the WideAngle brand, and also
integrate into our Global Cloud Vision to provide secure global cloud services
on a seamless, end-to-end basis.”
