SINGAPORE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ReadySpace, a leading cloud service provider in the Asia Pacific region, has announced a slew of new cybersecurity services to better protect businesses against cyber threats.
From today, selected ReadySpace Cloud Servers will come preinstalled and hardened with the necessary security features and services at no additional cost, making it easier for businesses, especially e-commerce companies, to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS).
PCI DSS provides a baseline of technical and operational requirements designed to protect financial account data. It applies to organizations involved in payment card processing, including merchants, processors, acquirers, issuers and service providers. The global standard was developed to enhance data security and encourage broad adoption of data security measures.
“Payment card details are one of the most sought after data by hackers. With ReadySpace’s award-winning cloud security, and now with our PCI-ready Cloud Servers, businesses are now assured that their customers’ payment card data will remain secure,” said Mr David Loke, Chief Executive Officer, ReadySpace.
“To be PCI-ready, organizations typically have to spend time with a consultant to implement the PCI security safeguards for a huge fee. With ReadySpace’s PCI-ready Cloud Servers, they can now do quickly for free,” Mr Loke added.
In terms of Web security, ReadySpace will also be providing SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificates for ReadySpace Cloud Servers for free. SSL is a technology that secures encrypted communication between a browser and a Web server.
“Besides securing Web communications, SSL also helps organizations improve their visibility on search engines such as Google, which sees a need to have a more secure Internet, and as such it ranks websites with SSL certificates higher than others,” Mr Loke said.
With the growing number of new and emerging cybersecurity threats, it has become harder for businesses to keep up with developments in the evolving cyber threat landscape. To help customers address this, ReadySpace recently became part of a server protection network that provides information on the latest security threats. With this information, ReadySpace will then block the impending threats before they strike customers.
Mr Loke said: “We’re now able to block access to malicious domains to limit the risk of infection, as well as prevent infected systems from connecting to command and control servers. Other new security services that we are providing include Web Application Firewall, Log Analysis, and Layer 7 DDoS mitigation.”
Meanwhile, ReadySpace reported a 35% increase in total revenue during the last fiscal year 2015/2016.
“Our stellar growth amid growing competition from large players in the cloud-hosting space shows that a regional cloud service player like ReadySpace can still deliver strong value for customers. We intend to build on our success and expand our footprint to markets like Thailand, Vietnam and South Korea,” Mr Loke said.
Said Tay Kunming, Far East Gems & Jewellery: “We have been with ReadySpace for the last 7 years and they have not let us down. With the introduction of strengthened security services on the ReadySpace Cloud, we would definitely be more daring to approach upcoming opportunities that were not possible before. We are proud to be a customer of ReadySpace as they are embody the Singapore spirit – to be cutting edge, competitive and reliable. ReadySpace is a great local brand with reliable international capabilities!”
