Tesserent releases CyberBIZ – Security made easy for SMBs
Tesserent Limited (ASX: TNT) is pleased to announce the launch of Tesserent’s SMB managed security service, CyberBIZ. CyberBIZ is an enterprise-grade managed cyber security service designed for small and medium businesses. It delivers the enterprise grade security that Tesserent has historically provided to its larger customers, packaged in a way that makes it accessible for the SMB market.
Tesserent CEO, Keith Glennan said: “We are excited on two fronts to be launching CyberBIZ. Firstly, we are very pleased to be bringing this offering to the SMB market at a time when businesses need robust security solutions more than ever before. And, secondly, we are extremely excited about the scalability of this offering in the SMB market. Our partnership with Dell on this project has been instrumental in us being able to robustly deliver small yet powerful security appliances around the country, which will connect back to our state- of-the-art security operations centre for 24×7 monitoring and management, without us having to worry about hardware logistics.”
CyberBIZ stands apart from other cyber security offerings in this space due to the managed service component. Most other SMB offerings rely on a business owner or an IT generalist installing and managing a product themselves. Unfortunately, this model often results in a false sense of security with poorly configured devices and business owners being unaware of significant vulnerabilities within their network. CyberBIZ enables every business to have access to world-class technology and specialised security engineers keeping watch over their network.”
“We’ve already received a tremendous amount of interest in CyberBIZ from the industry and the SMB target market. We’re looking forward to building a significant new revenue stream for Tesserent from the SMB market.”
CyberBIZ – Security made easy for SMBs
CyberBIZ has been developed by Tesserent to revolutionise the way small to medium businesses approach cyber security. CyberBIZ offers a range of plans from $199 to $999 per month to suit the needs of different businesses and various levels of cyber risk. Importantly, CyberBIZ plans incorporate a complete managed security service ensuring small business owners can remain focused on driving their business, while Tesserent provides expert protection for their digital assets and their reputation.
CyberBIZ offers 24×7 monitoring, anti-malware, VPN and remote access, SPAM filtering, web filtering and a specialised security culture and compliance suite of services ensuring staff are “cyber aware” and know how to make smart choices online.
SMBs account for 97% of Australian businesses and approximately 45% of the Australian workforce; however, these businesses generally don’t have access to skilled technical resources who can assess their cyber risk profile and implement appropriate risk mitigation strategies.
Cyber threats are growing rapidly, with the rate of detected malware growing exponentially. A recent industry report found that 19% of SMBs, (almost 1 in 5), have been impacted by a cyber attack, including 11% of SMBs who were impacted by a ransomware attack, costing on average $4,677 to remediate. It is now more important than ever before for SMBs to engage professional cyber security services to protect their business data and digital assets.
Key cyber security considerations for all businesses, including SMBs, are the importance of robust network security architecture, software upgrades and patches, network authentication protocols and staff security training and compliance. CyberBIZ addresses each of these key areas of security, providing SMBs with access to expert security resources at an affordable price.
