Partnership to expand cybersecurity services in Africa

Issue 1 2022 News & Events, Information Security

CYDEF has announced a distributor agreement with Digital Resilience, based in Johannesburg, South Africa. This partnership will expand on the cyber threat response services already offered by Digital Resilience and extend CYDEF’s reach to the African market.

Digital Resilience customers will now have access to CYDEF’s patent-pending Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services as

an important layer of protection against cyber-attacks. As CYDEF’s newest distributor, Digital Resilience presents a more robust portfolio to better serve new and existing clients across Africa.

CYDEF’s patents-pending solution takes a reverse approach to cybersecurity, earning the company a spot among the world’s top 100 innovative CyberTech companies in 2021.

Traditional cybersecurity models attempt to predict what criminals will do next and rely on computer algorithms to score threats and determine which, if any, should be investigated.

By contrast, CYDEF’s software checks all telemetry against an ever-growing list of known, safe, allowable behaviour. Everything that is not expected and deemed safe in a business environment is investigated by human analysts. This ensures computers are never making the decision as to whether an investigation is warranted. This approach requires fewer resources and catches threats that traditional cybersecurity solutions cannot.

“Partnering with CYDEF complements Digital Resilience’s cybersecurity solutions within the threat intelligence landscape and allows Digital Resilience to offer a diverse and cost-effective solution to our clients,” said Brandon Meszaros, CEO, Digital Resilience.
