As its preferred supplier, Transputec will provide round-the-clock protection of WFS’ aviation cargo and ground handling operations, which comprises 21,800 employees at 171 stations in 22 countries across five continents.

Transputec will supply WFS with all the relevant technology and services delivered in collaboration with ThreatSpike Labs, the cyber security intelligence company. The team of cyber security experts assigned to WFS will provide 24/7 monitoring for security risks or  incidents, helping to resolve them before they become an issue.

WFS decided to partner with Transputec after it came out on top in proof of concept trials involving various potential suppliers, and based on its expertise and the cost efficiency of the solution offered.

Pedro Garcia, Group Chief Information Officer for Worldwide Flight Services, commented: “Safety and security will always be WFS’ top priority to underpin the vital services we provide for our airline customers at airports around the world. We take this responsibility very seriously and are constantly reviewing our systems and processes to ensure they are fit-for-purpose against potential threats and to protect our business continuity. Transputec is providing critical managed services that enable us to improve the resilience, efficiency and security of our global operations, which gives us the peace of mind that any security anomaly or incident will be managed and resolved instantly.”

Sonny Sehgal, CEO, Transputec, added: “We are excited to be working with such a respected market leader as WFS and pleased to be helping to further improve the company’s security programme to increase the value of its services. Our team have already been welcomed as an extension of their IT function and a core part of their security team and will offer specialist help and digital expertise to support the integrity and growth of WFS’ operations around the world.”
