IT services provider HCL Technologies Ltd has said that it is opening a new cybersecurity centre in Texas to expand its US operations.

The CyberSecurity Fusion Center (CSFC) will help HCL in securing business growth by providing customers with a single point of contact for the enterprise security lifecycle, from detection to remediation, the company said in a statement. 

“Our CSFC in Frisco [Texas] is designed to defend our clients’ digital assets from security threats by leveraging intelligent, predictive, and adaptive systems. The Frisco facility is ideally located to attract and build the best pool of cybersecurity experts and to serve our most demanding customers,” said Maninder Singh, corporate vice president of cybersecurity services at HCL Technologies.  

Singh added that the new centre will take a multi-dimensional approach to combat security risks using integrated cyber threat intelligence to monitor for better and faster detection, and remediation of security incidents. 

In addition, the company said the CSFC will be powered by its proprietary dynamic cybersecurity framework that can analyze millions of events per second and monitors multiple IT and OT (operational technology) systems making use of multiple cyber threat intelligence sources.

The company has also partnered with Collin College and the University of North Texas to conduct on-campus hackathons and said that the top participants from winning teams at each school will be offered full-time jobs and advanced training at the company.
