Lefatshe Technologies has supplied in excess of 40 000 Webroot SpySweeper licences to numerous government departments through the State Information Technology Agency (SITA) since being awarded the Tender 392 bid in July 2005.
Departments protecting their desktops against adware and spyware using Webroot SpySweeper include the Department of Justice, the Department of Education and the KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Administration. SITA also bought a number of these licences for its own use.
"Tender 392 was intended to speed up delivery of critical IT security services to government," says Cheslyn Mostert, chairperson of Lefatshe Technologies. "The tender pre-qualified 30 security companies to bid for government business through SITA, providing us with opportunities to assist government in securing its technology environments while it concentrates on servicing South African citizens. Tender 392 ensures that the government tender process is not delayed unnecessarily, empowering departments to maintain protection against threats as they arise."
Tender 392 deals with three crucial components: governance, protection and operations, including anti-virus software and services; anti-vandal such as malicious and mobile code; content filtering such as anti-spam, Web, URL and keyword filtering and leak prevention; and infrastructure and operations remediation.
