KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 31): Systech Bhd unit, Sysarmy Sdn Bhd (‘Sysarmy’), has won the prestigious Malaysia Cyber Security Award for Cyber Security Innovation for Year 2016.

In a statement today, Sysarmy said the Malaysia Cyber Security Awards were created by Cybersecurity Malaysia since 2010 to honour individuals and organisations who contributed to Malaysia's cyber security or information security.

It said the awards are conferred in recognition of innovativeness, commitment, industry/product/service leadership, and sound business strategies.

This year, there are 7 categories of awards, including Cyber Security Individual Professionals, Companies, Innovations, Projects, Outreach, CyberSafe Profesional and Individual with lifetime achievement.

Sysarmy chief executive officer Hon Fun Ping attributed the company’s win to the overall adoption of its flagship IT Security offering in the Malaysian market.

Hon said Sysarmy was the first company to offer Next Generation Security Operation Center (‘NGSOC’) services for Malaysia and the ASEAN region, starting in 2015.

“We have been filling a critical gap in the local market for organisations striving to keep up with ever-challenging requirements of securing their data assets against IT breaches.

“Today, Sysarmy is the second largest SOC operator in Malaysia, based on [the] size of its corporate client base.

“The company grew an impressive 376% in FY2016 (ending 31st March 2016) in terms of annual revenue, as compared to FY2015, and expects another quantum leap for FY2017,” said Hon.
