First-of-its-kind partnership between a technology solutions provider and a top insurance broker to help customers tackle mounting threats to enterprise security
Malaysia – 7 December, 2016 – JOS, one of Asia’s leading providers of IT services and solutions, is partnering with Jardine Lloyd Thompson (JLT), leading suppliers of insurance, reinsurance and employee benefits-related advice, brokerage and associated services, to launch an innovative suite of cyber insurance and consultancy services as part of JOS’s comprehensive cyber security solutions.
JOS offers a range of cyber security technology and consulting services to ensure its customers stay one step ahead of cyber threats. JLT’s cyber insurance solutions help cover the insured party’s own costs and liabilities resulting from threats, damage or loss of information, as well as the use of systems or networks which are typically not protected under the majority of insurance on the market today.
The combination of JLT’s knowledge of cyber insurance and access to specialist markets with JOS’s suite of cyber security consultancy services is a unique partnership at the leading edge of the industry. This is the first time that a technology consultancy with the long heritage and far reach of JOS is working hand-in-hand with an insurance broker like JLT to offer comprehensive cyber insurance solutions to clients across Asia; via JLT’s hubs in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore.
JOS Group Managing Director, Mark Lunt spoke of the significance of the partnership between JOS and JLT, saying: “We are proud to be at the helm of the next generation of cyber security solutions together with our partner JLT. Working together we are able to provide customers with the unique opportunity to access tailored cyber coverage from one of the world’s leading insurers. With technology underpinning the operations and performance of every international business, it is now more important than ever for market leaders such as JOS and JLT to form strategic partnerships that will enable customers to stay secure in the face of advanced and persistent cyber security risks.”
JOS Group Head of Cyber Security Services, Barnaby Grosvenor added: “Coupled with JLT’s industry leadership, JOS is well poised to help organisations assess, combat and manage a broad range of cyber risks. By capitalising on cutting-edge industry and proprietary tools, JOS is delivering integrated cyber security solutions for customers in Asia – from tailor-made assessments, to a menu of security essentials, to a comprehensive long-term suite of consultancy and services.”
JLT’s Managing Director, Financial Lines Group Asia, Ali Chaudhry went on to say: “At JLT, we have a strong focus on providing clients with specialty products. In the area of cyber security a deep understanding of product and exposure is key. New IT risks are developing rapidly for practically all of our clients, leading to the need for a proactive and innovative approach. In working together with JOS, we are excited to be able to offer our clients customised, end-to-end solutions that will help reduce and manage their cyber security costs and exposures. In parallel, we are also launching our Asian cyber risk analytics tool that will provide our clients with quantitative information on their risk profiles.”
Under the partnership, JOS becomes the flagship member of the JLT Cyber Consortium for Asia. JLT’s Cyber Consortium is a unique global community of leading companies and subject matter experts across the cyber ecosystem that continually collaborate on cyber risk best practices and thought leadership to support mutual clients around their strategic, operational, financial and human resource issues impacted by cyber risk.

Kuala Lumpur – 1 September, 2015 – Jardine OneSolution (JOS) today announces a new chapter in its history as it assumes a new brand identity to reflect its strengthened capabilities as one of Asia’s leading systems integrators, solutions providers and technology consultancies.
From today, the company becomes JOS, dispensing with the long form of its name used previously (Jardine OneSolution). The new JOS logo gives the brand a fresh, sharp and modern look while maintaining a link with its rich heritage – JOS draws on a 60-year history in Asia’s dynamic technology sector. JOS’s core capabilities are highlighted in the new marketing tagline: Tailor-made solutions for business in Asia.
Mark Lunt, Group Managing Director, JOS, said: “For many years we’ve been known as JOS by our customers and partners and we are pleased that the name is regarded positively across the Asian technology industry. The new brand fulfils a number of goals: it acknowledges our heritage and brand equity; brings us up to date and reflects our new capabilities.”
This move underlines JOS’s goal of becoming a trusted partner to customers across Asia for emerging as well as established technologies. The company has made significant investments to bolster its capabilities in key technology areas: big data, cloud computing, enterprise applications, enterprise security, mobility and next generation infrastructure. The range of investments includes solutions development, new partnerships with pioneering technology vendors, the appointment of new technology experts, and a new website showcasing the new brand and its range of offerings.
“The new brand reflects our optimism and excitement about the opportunities ahead,” said Mr. Lunt. “We have a wide range of vendor partners, which gives our customers a rich choice; while being independent means we can develop and implement solutions that are tailor-made for the customer.”
JOS is an operating brand under JTH Group, a new brand name for the Jardine OneSolution Group function, which supports its two technology businesses – JOS and Innovix Distribution.
Eric van der Hoeven, Chief Executive, JTH Group, said: “The effective use of technology is a key factor in staying competitive in modern business. Yet, Asia can sometimes be slow to adopt pioneering technologies. With JOS’s strengths as a systems integrator and technology consultancy, we are ideally placed to play a role in keeping the region internationally competitive.”
