Wipro brings NextGen Cyber Defence Centre to Melbourne

A NextGen Cyber Defence Centre has launched in Melbourne to help businesses and organisations bolster their cybersecurity capabilities.

The centre, founded by Indian tech giant Wipro, “will be equipped with state-of-the-art technology enabled by infrastructure with continuous security monitoring, a large pool of experienced security professionals and a global delivery model to achieve and scale highly secure integrated platforms”, according to Manoj Nagpaul, Wipro Senior Vice President, Head Asia Pacific and Japan.

Wipro said the $1.5 million centre is designed to help clients expand and run their cybersecurity operations through its threat intelligence, security monitoring and analytics, vulnerability management, incident response and regulatory compliance services.

The centre’s launch will also see Wipro upskill its employees, hire more local resources and generate over 100 cybersecurity specialist jobs in Melbourne, the company said. Wipro also plans to launch similar CDCs in other Australian cities, offering cyber resilience and digital protection to large government organisations, it added.
