Cyber crime has risen exponentially, with BlackFog recording more than 175 publicized ransomware attacks to date this year. With the increase in cyberattacks, Telkom Business launched Smart Secure Solutions in partnership with BlackFog to offer affordable cybersecurity solutions to SMMEs.

PREDICTIONS-SERIES-2022“When we look at successful cyberattacks, all roads lead to data exfiltration. Without it, cybercriminals are unable to steal information for competitive, disruptive, or monetary gain,” said Dr. Darren Williams, BlackFog founder and CEO. “BlackFog’s disruptive technology prevents unauthorized data exfiltration, effectively allowing organisations to stop hackers in their tracks. BlackFog is excited to partner with Telkom to deliver this level of cybersecurity to their customer base.”

Smart Secure leverages behavioural analysis to pre-empt potential attacks by preventing unauthorised data exfiltration, ensuring that data that is on a device stays on the device and protecting employees from cyberattacks no matter where they are working. This protection will enable businesses to successfully get connected, win customers and maintain productivity, without worrying about the safety of their data.

Pereira adds, “Businesses have had to amplify their digital communication and digitise their operations due to the pandemic. While digital means simplify many processes for businesses, cybercrime remains a significant threat, and businesses need sufficient and affordable software that will allow them to protect their organisation, and that is what our partnership with BlackFog provides.”
