Bengaluru-based IT services firm Infosys is starting a new cyber defence centre in Bucharest.

The defence centre, which will act as an expansion centre for the digital innovation centre launched in Bucharest last year, will offer end-to-end cybersecurity solutions to European and other global businesses, an official statement said today.

“This cyber defence centre is the latest addition to our global network of security operation centres across the world and enhances our ability to provide end-to-end cyber security solutions to our clients,” Ravi Kumar S, president at Infosys, said.

He added that the company chose Romania as the location for the new cyber defence centre because the country is already seen as an established cybersecurity talent provider in Europe.

Infosys will be expanding its team in Romania with the help of local hires and also invest in advanced training for its employees.

The centre’s solutions will include services like security monitoring, management, remediation, threat hunting, security analytics, incident discovery and response, the statement added.

Last week, the company had said it was partnering with US-based database solutions provider MongoDB to accelerate app development for enterprises via a new application programming interface (API) speed layer.

The new solution will help enterprises develop applications faster via the API route by taking advantage of Infosys’ microservices acceleration platform in combination with MongoDB’s global cloud database called MongoDB Atlas, an official statement said. 

Earlier, the company’s cloud-based products subsidiary EdgeVerve announced the launch of robotic process automation (RPA) solution to provide enterprise customers with intelligent automation as a service.

Called AssistEdge Cloud RPA, the automation solution is expected to help enterprises future-proof businesses with speed, scalability and security, the company said in a statement.
