- In 2013, Thales and the University of Malaya (Kuala Lumpur) deployed technologies to generate digital degree certificates thereby reducing possibilities of counterfeiting and fraud
- In 2014, Thales secured a contract to deliver the Fulmar UAS to the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency to be used for maritime surveillance
Public Safety and Security: Thanks to its experience in security for cities and critical infrastructure, Thales is positioning itself in Malaysia to address the needs of large metropolises for both public safety and crisis management. Thales security solutions cover areas such as citizen protection, anti-terrorism, protection of critical infrastructures, green and blue borders’ control and information systems security.
Cyber security and Information system security: Thales has a strong team of cyber security experts in its Kuala Lumpur office responsible for the sales, marketing and consulting of Thales solutions in Malaysia. Supported by Thales Hong Kong, who has over 25 years of local presence and expertise in this domain, Thales is the leading global provider of data protection solutions in the region.
In September 2015, Thales Malaysia signed an MOU with Cyber Security Malaysia (CSM). Through this strategic alliance, Thales supports CSM with the development and implementation of practical cyber security approaches and technological advancements that continuously enhance the quality of Critical Infrastructure Systems Security Assurance and to deliver greater benefits of ICT to internet users in Malaysia.
Academic institutions around the world face occasional challenges over the production of counterfeit degree certificates. In 2013, the University of Malaya decided to address the problem by issuing e-Scrolls or digital degree certificates to their graduates. These e-Scrolls are digitally signed and time-stamped and can be authenticated online. As a leader in information systems and communications security, Thales deployed its technology to the university with its NShield hardware security modules (HSMs) and Time Stamp Server, supporting their aim of reducing instances of counterfeiting and fraud.
Maritime security: In 2016, Thales’ Fulmar UAS was selected by the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency to be installed on six New Generation Patrol Crafts (NGPC), being constructed by Destini Shipbuilding and Engineering Sdn. Bhd. Fulmar will extend the operational capabilities of the Malaysian maritime surveillance fleet, proving a broad range of operational capabilities including counter-piracy, anti-smuggling operations, fisheries policing and border surveillance. Thales employees in Malaysia will provide local training and support for the Fulmar, ensuring effective knowledge transfer for operational and maintenance needs throughout the system’s life cycle.
