Kaspersky launched its integrated software solution that includes a set of functions for event monitoring and management, Kaspersky Unified Monitoring and Analysis Platform (KUMA), to help businesses and organizations stay safe in cyberspace while embracing digitalization, in HCM City on January 25.

Việt Nam was the fastest-growing digital economy in Southeast Asia for two consecutive years, 2022 and 2023, posting year-on-year growth of 20 percent, and its digital economy is on track to reach approximately US$45 billion by 2025, according to an annual report from Google and Temasek.

A report by the global cybersecurity and digital privacy company showed that the dangers of phishing, scams, data breaches and geopolitically-motivated cyberattacks continue to target organizations and individuals in the region.

Kasperalso revealed that it protected almost one in every two Vietnamese users (44.18 per cent) against local infections last year.

KUMA is a unified console for monitoring and analyzing information security incidents. Thanks to integration with the Kaspersky CyberTrace platform, which processes reports from the National Coordination Centre for Computer Incidents, a researcher can extract compromise indicators and use them to detect events in SIEM.

SIEM is a central element of most mature information security systems, hence, it must meet all relevant market requirements and take into account the changing landscape of cyber threats. KUMA expands the capabilities of analysts and allows businesses and organizations to optimize the budget for cybersecurity, providing protection at an optimal level.

“Threat actors increasingly use diverse tactics to launch sophisticated targeted attacks. Therefore, it is essential to use a system that can monitor network activity, like security information and event management. With the launch of KUMA, we hope that we can empower tech experts to handle complex cybersecurity incidents with unmatched extended detection and response to enhance the safety of Việt Nam’s cyberspace,” said Ngô Tấn Vũ Khanh, enterprise account manager for Vietnam at Kaspersky.— VNS
