KUALA LUMPUR: Dagang NeXchange Bhd (DNeX) has signed an exclusive brand licence agreement with EC-Council International Ltd to offer cybersecurity services in Malaysia.

Under the agreement, DNeX, through its wholly-owned subsidiary DNeX Technology Sdn Bhd, will provide cybersecurity consultancy and advisory services based on the delivery model, methodology and brand of EC-Council Global Services (EGS).

EGS is a division of EC-Council that offers comprehensive cybersecurity services, and is dedicated to help organisations understand and manage their cybersecurity risk posture effectively.

With this licensing deal, DNeX will offer the holistic approach to cybersecurity of EGS and develop a cybersecurity framework that helps in identification, protection, detection, response and recovery to cyberthreats to clients in Malaysia,” said EC-Council group president Jay Bavisi.
