Cyber threats are continually evolving with attacks becoming more frequent, sophisticated and targeted.
MEGABIT provides advanced detection, incident response and recovery against the newest security threats – helping you safeguard your systems, data and people.
Over 3.8 Million of African businesses reported an attack or breach during 2020. Therefore, it’s critical that organisations take cyber security seriously and invest in advanced measures that extend well beyond traditional perimeter defences (firewalls and anti-virus).
That’s where MEGABIT can help. Our next-gen managed cyber security services are designed to help you identify, mitigate and proactively defend against security risks and attacks.
Our in-house Security Operations Centre (SOC) – with best-of-breed systems, tool-set and fully certified team – is on hand to keep you safe and secure, protecting you from the inside out.
Spyware and cyberattacks have skyrocketed this year, as Africans take to the internet to stay in touch with family and friends due to the COVID-19.
Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa experienced millions of malware and other attacks between January and August, according to data from cybersecurity company Kaspersky.
Potentially unwanted applications (PUA), also known as grayware, are programmes that come pre-installed on phones and computers and can pose security and privacy risks. Malware, which includes spyware and viruses, is software designed to cause damage.
“There were 3.8 million malware attacks and 16.8 million PUA detections,” says Kaspersky. “In South Africa, there were almost ten million malware attacks and a staggering 43 million PUA detections. Kenyan users faced even more malware attacks — around 14 million and 41 million PUA appearances.”
Unfortunately, most organisations only discover they’ve fallen victim to a cyber-attack when it’s too late. Act now and invest in the best defences available.
With so many challenges associated with cyber security, it’s easy to see why some businesses are unsure whether to invest.
Common perceptions include “it doesn’t affect us” or “we don’t have the budget”, but this is a global priority, and it’s more important than ever.
So what’s at risk? Cyber attacks pose a huge threat to business continuity, with a loss of data and productivity. Attacks are costly – in fact, cyber crime is predicted to cost companies £6 trillion worldwide by 2021.* GDPR regulations also mean you risk hefty fines if you’re not compliant, not to mention the negative publicity, damage to your reputation and customers relationships.
With a constantly changing environment, and attacks becoming more frequent and sophisticated, it’s critical that your business is fully equipped to deal with newest cyber threats.
