ACA Pacific Singapore (ACA Pacific Technology(S) Pte Ltd), an established IT marketing and value-added distributor in the Asia-Pacific region, has partnered with Atsign, Inc., a leader in IoT security, to bring game-changing IoT device security technology to the region. The rapid adoption of IoT devices in the region has led to a dramatic increase in criminal hacking groups attacking these devices to gain access to various organizations, as well as the government’s critical infrastructure.
ACA Pacific Group will offer Atsign’s technology platform to eliminate all network attack surfaces (i.e. having no open ports) which will thwart these cybercriminals, protect IoT devices, and save costs over traditional, complicated, and less secure means of protecting IoT devices. Atsign will work closely alongside ACA Pacific’s broad ecosystem of partners to deliver industry leading cybersecurity solutions across industries and use cases.
“I couldn’t be happier about this new partnership with ACA Pacific,” says Barbara Tallent, CEO of Atsign. “Their knowledge of the APAC market and great reputation with their clients is a powerful step forward for our goal of providing protection and privacy to more business customers in the region.”
Craig Gledhill, CEO of ACA Pacific, discussed the partnership, stating that the fast rollout of 5G in the APAC market has led to a significant growth in IoT. However, this rapid expansion has also resulted in a significant security gap. Gledhill expressed excitement about partnering with Atsign to provide their technology as a cost-effective solution to address this very important issue. The technology is expected to be a great fit for many of ACA Pacific’s customers and partners.
