South Korean cybersecurity company Penta Security has entered the Indonesia market by signing a deal with the country’s top tech distributor for IT security products and solution, PT. Prospera Aswindra Teknologi.
The distribution agreement comes at a time when Indonesia is undergoing major digital transformation efforts, which opens up the country to greater cybersecurity challenges.
With the growing challenges, Indonesia is seeing a high demand for cybersecurity solutions, as governments and businesses face a growing number of cyber threats.
Anyone for WAPPLES?
Founded in 1997, Penta Security offers a wide range of cybersecurity protection solutions to organisations in the Asia Pacific.
Its flagship product, WAPPLES, is a web application firewall that utilises a logic-based detection engine known as COCEP (Contents Classification and Evaluation Processing), to guard against sensitive data leakage, malicious cyberthreats and website defacement.
PT. Prospera Aswindra Teknologi has chosen WAPPLES to protect its web applications from cyberattacks.
“Our priority is to focus on staying ahead of the attacks whilst letting our users operate their businesses in the safest environment,” said DS Kim, the Chief Strategy Officer of Penta Security.
WAPPLES comes in both hardware and software, optimised for cloud platforms.
“To overcome the increased sophistication of web attacks, WAPPLES’ rule-based COCEP engine operates more logically and efficiently than existing WAFs in the market,” added Mr. Kim.
In July, Indonesia pushed ahead with a data protection law, which will make it illegal to collect consumer data without permission, requiring businesses to alert customers within days of knowing that their names, email and other information had been breached.
