The companies have teamed up to strengthen their cyber security suite in Australia and New Zealand.
Cloud security company Akamai Technologies and ICT services company Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand have entered into a strategic partnership aimed at expanding their critical infrastructure offering in the region.
Specifically, Akamai is expected to leverage its micro segmentation solution in combination with Fujitsu’s experience as a managed services provider, supported by its hybrid IT, data centres, cloud and cyber security suite.
Parimal Pandya, senior vice president and managing director, APJ at Akamai, said the partnership would help improve resilience to increasingly sophisticated ransomware attacks and supply chain threats.
“Akamai’s micro segmentation capability helps organisations to better secure their data, applications, servers and critical infrastructure and be better protected from ransomware attacks,” Pandya said.
“We are looking forward to providing differentiated offerings to ensure ANZ organisations have the necessary tools to prevent and mitigate cyber attacks that can cripple an organisation both from a reputational as well as financial perspective.”
Graeme Beardsell, Fujitsu executive vice president and CEO, Asia-Pacific, welcomed the partnership with Akamai, which he said would build on the companies’ “long heritage” in the security space.
“The Fujitsu and Akamai relationship spans over a decade in Japan, and we are pleased to extend this into the ANZ region, which is a key market for us,” Beardsell said.
“This relationship signifies the start of a potential extended cooperation across the Asia-Pacific region.”
