Addressing the event, Benny Czarny, founder and CEO of OPSWAT said, "In recent years, Vietnam has been actively investing in developing infrastructure, especially critical infrastructure, with an investment rate of up to 6 per cent of GDP. At the same time, in Vietnam, the digital transformation is taking place vigorously in state agencies and businesses in all fields to optimise operations and business."
"Alongside these developments and transformations is the increasing demand for security for the critical network systems of organisations and businesses. Therefore, we are actively expanding operations in the Vietnamese market to be ready to support Vietnamese governments and businesses in ensuring the safety and security of critical network systems," Czarny said.

The company will continue to invest in enhancing capabilities, meeting the growing needs of the market, building an attractive working environment for local talent at both offices in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, and determined to maintain OPSWAT Vietnam's award as the "Best Company to work for in Asia" for four consecutive years, as voted by HR Asia magazine.
“The inauguration of the new office is evidence of OPSWAT's steadfast commitment to helping the Vietnamese government and businesses address challenges in protecting the IT and OT network systems of organisations and confidently integrate into the global economy,” Cuong said.

Through this collaboration, OPSWAT will integrate CMC Cyber Security's CMC IS antivirus engine into OPSWAT's Multiscanning technology, which is a multi-application malware detection and prevention solution.
By combining the power of CMC IS and other leading malware scanning engines in the market, OPSWAT Multiscanning enhances the ability to effectively block threats, especially new malware originating from Vietnam and neighbouring regions.
This collaboration brings significant benefits to OPSWAT and CMC's customers, helping these organisations detect over 99 per cent of malware, strengthening network security effectiveness against increasingly sophisticated attacks.
"With the joint provision of the multiscanning malware prevention technology for critical infrastructure in Vietnam and other countries worldwide, we will provide customers with a robust defence to ensure the safety of their critical network systems. This will also enhance the reputation of Vietnam's cybersecurity industry on the international stage," said Cuong.
Speaking about the significance of the partnership, Ha The Phuong, general director of CMC Cyber Security, said that the strategic cooperation between CMC Cyber Security and OPSWAT was a significant step, marking the continuous development of both companies.
“OPSWAT is a partner with a highly skilled and specialised IT workforce. With 15 years of experience in the information security market, CMC Cyber Security believes that this cooperation will expand our technological capabilities and create unity in protecting customer data and systems. Customers will be securely protected in an increasingly complex digital environment," Phuong added.
