LAC Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Mr. Teruhiko Takanashi, hereafter referred to as LAC) received the "2016 Frost & Sullivan Japan Managed Security Service Provider of the Year Award" from Frost & Sullivan, a leading US research firm (the 2016 Frost & Sullivan Excellence Awards). LAC is highly praised by Frost & Sullivan for its rich experience and business strategy as a Security Service Provider in the Japanese market. It is now LAC's second year in a row to win the award.
Frost & Sullivan, with its headquarters in California has been conducting Global Market consulting in a wide range of fields including IT, Energy, Aerospace, Health, Food and others for more than 50 years.
The award is based on evaluation made in terms of 1) market share, growth rate, 2) business strategy and its implementation, 3) cutting-edge innovations in the cyber security business, and 4) Business innovation in products and technology. It is an award given to companies that drive the most excellent Cyber Security Services. Last year was the first time it was ever awarded to a Japanese domestic company.
Once again, the following are the Cyber Security Services that merited awards:
- Security Monitoring Service (JSOC, Japan Security Operation Center)
- Security Consulting Service
- Security Penetration Service (Diagnostic Services)
- Security Incident Response Service (Cyber Emergency Center, Cyber 119)
We are honored that our Security Service Business has been highly evaluated for the 2nd consecutive year. We believe that not only in Japan, but for the rest of the world, as we exchange information over the internet more than ever, cyberattacks will continue to become more sophisticated and the most important issue is how we can counter these attacks.
At this time, together with our award-winning security services, we will take advantage of this evaluation in building information systems and continue towards the innovation of our operations in order to contribute to our customers' peace of mind in a safe and secure business environment.
