CYFIRMA, an external threat landscape management platform company, has introduced a range of external threat visibility platforms for Middle East-based businesses signaling a move that’s poised to arm regional enterprises with the tools required to curb emerging and existing cyber threats.
According to research published in the Global Risks Report 2022, through the pandemic, ransomware attacks increased by 435 per cent and malware attacks by 358 per cent. These attacks have been increasing at a pace where societies haven’t been able to keep up and prevent or respond to them effectively.
DeCYFIR is an external threat visibility management platform with the capabilities to combine cyber intelligence with attack surface discovery, vulnerability intelligence, brand intelligence, situational awareness and protection against digital risk all on a single pane of glass.
The platform automatically correlates and attributes threat actors to motive, campaign and method, and helps organisations predict cyberattacks targeting them.
DeTCT is the cutting-edge digital risk protection platform helping customers identify and monitor for vulnerabilities and potential attack vectors, and develop an awareness of data leaks and breaches as well as the risks posed by third parties. Businesses can also subscribe to DeTCT to protect their brand and reputation by detecting copyright infringement and identity theft, the company said.
“We started CYFIRMA to ensure every organisation can see through the hacker’s lens. We believe to stay ahead of today’s threats, businesses need to know how attackers view their targets. We use our expertise in AI, cyber-intelligence and offensive security to build DeCYFIR and DeTCT so defenders can discover gaps, assess risks, and improve their security posture, all by simply keying in their domain names into our platforms,” said Kumar Ritesh, Founder & CEO at CYFIRMA.
He further added that there are a number of key drivers that are defining the current Middle East cyber threat landscape – the ongoing volatile geopolitical climate, rapid digitalisation initiatives, and the upcoming FIFA World Cup.
“Through our platforms, we are seeing an increase in cyber activities targeting critical infrastructure, oil and gas verticals, essential services and many other industries. These are hot targets for cybercriminals seeking to either advance their political agenda or financial gain. CYFIRMA’s external threat landscape management platforms will give defenders the advantage of gaining deep insights into their adversaries and be better prepared to thwart attempts at intellectual property theft, corporate espionage, civil disruption and other malicious agendas,” added Kumar.
“We are truly excited about this collaboration and introducing this cutting-edge technology to businesses in the Middle East. Over the past two years, businesses in the Middle East have become more and more vulnerable to cyber threats, and we are hoping that this collaboration will be a game-changer across all industries. These two platforms will now enable security experts to promptly discover imminent gaps, assess potential risks, and significantly improve their security. This will ultimately lead to enhanced business performance, boost productivity and inspire innovation across key departments,” said Sudhanshu Saroha, Director, Tech First Gulf.
