NTT Data today announced the availability of its global Zero Trust Security Service. 
The new service will provide organisations with a work environment suited to the new flexibility in working styles, without restricting users by work location, such as the office or home, or by type of device, whether smartphone or PC, the tech giant claims. 
It added that its Zero Trust service will contribute to damage reduction from security incidents with multi-factor authentication and log monitoring, rapid detection, response, and recovery. 
“NTT Data considers today’s increasingly sophisticated and complex cyberattacks to be a management risk, and has revised its security governance globally, introducing a zero trust architecture used by 140,000 employees in 55 markets worldwide,” the Japanese company said in a statement. 
“Based on this experience, NTT Data has systematised its expertise to provide customers with a comprehensive service from consulting to architecture implementation and operation. 
“Together with strategic partner companies with extensive track records globally in a wide range of technical fields, NTT Data has created a structure with more than 1,000 specialists able to provide service.”
The company expects its new service to generate ¥30bn (€233.9m) in annual revenue globally by the end of fiscal 2025.
Increasing need for security
NTT Data said implementing a highly secure environment globally to counter increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks has become an urgent issue.
Therefore, as part of its strategy to “Expand Global Digital Offerings” in its medium-term management plan, the company is focusing on security as a primary domain, and has now begun offering a service to provide comprehensive support for zero trust security architecture, from consulting to implementation and operation.
Moreover, in its domestic market, NTT Data will expand the provision of BMWS (BXO managed workspace security), an integrated security infrastructure based on zero trust network architecture, which was launched in 2019 as a new security function of BizXaaS Office offered as a digital workspace. 
BMWS is expected to generate ¥15bn (€117m) in annual revenue in Japan by the end of fiscal 2025.
