During the past few years we’ve seen how a poor cyber security strategy and protocols has led to devastating data breach for firms both locally and abroad. This has seemingly intensified during the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown and criminals get more brazen. In order to address this from a business perspective, Liquid Telecom recently launched its new Cyber Security Unit.

The new Unit offers end-to-end managed services for digital security solutions, Liquid Telecom explains. The telecoms service provider notes that this new offering is designed to protect customers at every intersection of their digitally transformed business, including the network, its people and system.

The company believes that this will tackle a critical need for digitally transformed businesses, with a recently commissioned survey by Liquid Telecom finding that 57 percent of organisations have seen an increase in cyber threats during the pandemic.

Added to this is the hybrid model of working that is being adopted by many, according to the firm, which will see a combination of remote and in-office working taking place. This mix has the potential to create a increased security concerns, especially as it pertains to shadow IT and the associated financial implications of a data breach.

Liquid Telecom says it has now streamlined and strengthened its cyber security offerings into one unit to address these growing concerns.

“Although we’re unveiling the cyber security unit today, Liquid Telecom is not new to this space. We have successfully secured our own network for the past 15 years, and now through our strategic partnerships with Netskope, Logicalis, Microsoft and Cyber Risk Aware we have curated the best solutions in the industry to address the changing demands of a digitally transformed business world. Allowing customers to focus on their core business offering while we manage their complete IT environment,” highlights David Behr, group chief digital officer at the telecoms provider.

The new launch of this end-to-end solution comes at an opportune time, Liquid Telecom adds. This as it covers all aspects of security working together seamlessly, decreasing the opportunity for breaches and risks. The company’s research supports this, as the aforementioned survey found that 83 percent of respondents are putting an increased focus on cyber security this year.

If you’re one such business, it may be worthwhile asking what Liquid Telecom can do for you.
