"At Microsoft, we are committed to invest in the region so we can bring our cyber security capabilities to customers by identifying current threats that affect the economy's prosperity," Silva said.

The center will help fight cyber crime, particularly in the dismantling of criminal organisations that operate through Botnet schemes.

It will also help cyber security experts from Mexico and elsewhere in Latin America to work with Microsoft specialists to fight cyber crime together.

"By opening this center, we are bringing Microsoft's offer of security increasingly closer to customers in order to be a strategic part of their transformation, and together we will create a country and a region that are more prosperous and productive, and above all, that are safer," Silva said.
