Integralis has formally changed its name to NTT Com Security after the initial intention was announced earlier in June this year.
This news formally confirms that NTT Com Security has replaced Integralis and Secode and that it will continue promoting its portfolio of managed security, business infrastructure, consulting and technology integration services through its WideAngle brand.
This latest move is a natural progression for NTT Com Security to bring both the previous Integralis and Secode organisations within one corporate structure. The name change reflects NTT Com Security’s intention to continue expanding its security capabilities to service global customers, which will mean ongoing investment into products, platforms, services as well as improved career opportunities for its employees. Initial feedback from customers, partners and industry analysts also indicated that this move will help better make use of the strength of NTT’s identity in the global market.
Simon Church, CEO at NTT Com Security, said: “The name change makes good business sense and better aligns us to one of the world’s largest companies and biggest brands. We remain 100% focused on information security and risk management and while other acquisitions throughout our industry have lost some of their identity and expertise, we continue to have the opportunity to become our industry's next powerhouse. As NTT Com Security, we are able to engage with customers at all levels across the globe to deliver a clear and consistent message that represents the core of the business and the value we can bring to our customers.”
The change in name from Integralis to NTT Com Security does not involve any change in ownership of the organisation. With the exception of setting up NTT Com Security in Japan, there are no management or other operational changes planned. NTT Communications Group still owns approximately 80% of the shares and the listing of NTT Com Security AG (formerly Integralis AG) shares on the German stock exchange will continue.
Akira Arima, CEO at NTT Communications, added: “Naming NTT Com Security as our dedicated security arm will further establish us as a global entity committed to resolving IT challenges faced by today’s businesses. Through the WideAngle brand, we will continue to promote our information security and risk management skills, expertise and services, as well as enhance our Global Cloud Vision to provide secure global cloud services on a seamless, end-to-end basis. ”
