All-in-one security platform, Defendify, has reportedly announced that there has been an increase in demand for its new Cybersecurity Essentials package against surging cybercriminal activity that has been plaguing small and mid-sized enterprises. Essentials provides businesses with three award-winning cybersecurity tools to comprehend the threats and vulnerabilities that might impact their organization, further suggesting next steps for remediation.
According to Rob Simopoulos, the Co-Founder of Defendify, it has become extremely crucial to simplify the cybersecurity framework and protect business establishments in the light of recent changes affecting global business outlook. He has further stated that cybersecurity can no longer be an afterthought, highlighting that there are methods to improve the cybersecurity posture for ensuring the protection and growth of businesses. The company’s Essentials effectively fulfils this requirement and the company is glad to be able to provide it to enterprises at no cost, added Simopoulos.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, there has been a shift in the working environment of businesses to work-from-home and this has potentially put networks, systems, and data at risk, if it is not checked and managed on a thorough basis. Adversaries are evidently taking advantage of security oversights amid the rapid changes to office devices, networks, and distributed work environments, intending to plague businesses that lack sophisticated security protocols across processes, technology, and people.
According to sources, Defendify has made its Cybersecurity Essentials package available for free, and as the services are built securely in the cloud, customers can deploy the package in minutes without installing any other hardware or software. Businesses that have already leveraged the package comprise professional services, manufacturing, and other sectors.
During the onboarding process of the package, the company had conducted a Quick Cybersecurity Health Checkup for the users. The company has found that, in a random sample of users, around 70 per cent had a failing grade before the complete implementation of the package, and around 68 per cent of these at-risk businesses formed part of the manufacturing sector or delivered some form of professional, business, or technical service.
