The Stefanini Group announced yesterday the operation of a SOC (security operations center), the third in its service offering, to serve customers across the EMEA region – Europe, the Middle East and Africa. SOC is in Bucharest and already employs a significant number of cybersecurity experts, which could triple in size by the end of this year, according to a company statement.
Last year, Stefanini partnered with Romanian Cyber Smart Defense, one of Romania’s most dynamic cybersecurity companies, in a joint venture for which it is expected to reach sales of up to five million euros over the next three years. .
The new SOC in Bucharest already serves several global companies established in Europe and has an ambitious growth plan of 120% year on year, while the market is expected to expand 12% in 2021. The deal consolidates the company’s goal of expanding its global offering cybersecurity services. With 60 Stefanini specialists worldwide, this division already accounts for 1% of the company’s overall sales, and is expected to reach 5% in the next two years.
Created 33 years ago and operating in 41 countries, Stefanini entered the cybersecurity market in 2016, when it started a joint venture with Israeli Rafael Advanced Defense Systems. The company leverages technology designed for military-grade cyber security and its own global sales channels. Stefanini Rafael’s managed security services grew rapidly in Brazil, enabling the company to expand to Latin America, which also has a Security Operations Center.
Stefanini started marketing its service portfolio in Europe in 2010. Thanks to the high level of technical education in Romania, the country has become the company’s IT center for the continent. The multinational employs around 2,500 people in Europe – 1,500 in Romania – who serve global customers in EMEA.
The company’s cyber security services cover penetration testing, a relatively quick method for assessing how easy it would be for an attacker to breach an IT infrastructure and find vulnerabilities that could pose serious threats, such as malicious IP addresses, hashes of malware files , disreputable domains, etc.
