Tata Consultancy Services on Thursday said that it has launched 10 new threat management centres across the globe to provide cyber security services to its enterprise customers.

The 10 centres, spread across Bloomington in the United States, Manchester in the United Kingdom, Madrid in Spain, and certain unnamed Indian cities, were operationalised over a span of four months, a statement said.

The hubs’ cyber security and services include managed detection and response services, incident management and breach support, on-demand cyber vigilance services, digital forensics and regulatory compliance, the statement added.

The Mumbai-headquartered information technology services exporter said that the centres will offer comprehensive and integrated threat management services across information technology, operational technology, Internet of Things, and cloud ecosystems at a time when Covid-19 has accelerated remote working.

TCS on Wednesday posted a 7% fall in quarterly profit in the second quarter ended September. Profit fell to Rs 7,475 crore, from Rs 8,042 crore, a year earlier.

Q2 revenue rose about 3% to Rs 40,135 crore, beating Dalal Street expectations.

Earlier in the week, the company’s stock crossed a Rs 10 trillion mark, becoming the second Indian firm after Reliance Industries to achieve the milestone.

Late August, Noida-headquartered HCL Technologies had opened a European Cybersecurity Fusion Center (CSFC) in Gothenburg, Sweden, in extension of its cybersecurity hubs network to the European region.
