PRESS RELEASE - London, UK - 10 January 2019

CySure partners with Frost Solutions to deliver cyber security services in South Africa
Cyber security specialist CySure Ltd has appointed Frost Solutions as a specialist value added reseller partner in South Africa. Frost Solutions specializes in delivering IT services to the small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) market and has added CySure’s information security management system, VOSO to its product and service portfolio.

Richard Frost, CEO and Founder at Frost Solutions said, “We are delighted to introduce CySure’s Virtual Online Security Officer (VOSO) to our offering. Our vision is to provide market leading services to our clients using the latest cutting-edge technologies and VOSO fits perfectly into this category. With new threats appearing daily cyber security is becoming increasingly important and complex, yet many SMEs don’t have the bandwidth to take the trend seriously. VOSO is cost effective and easy to use, it’s an exciting opportunity and there is a gap in the South African market for a cyber security solution of this nature.”

The South African government conducted a Cybersecurity Readiness Survey in 2017 , in order to establish a baseline of the current security status in different sectors in the country. Key findings showed that only 28% of organisations had a Chief Information Security Officer. The survey also revealed that the top three challenges facing organisations in South Africa with regard to cybersecurity were insufficient skills (57%), lack of in-house skills (49%) and the lack of awareness (39%). The survey also found that for most organisations surveyed, employees posed a bigger threat than criminals from outside the organisation. Yet, when it came to the level of security awareness training, only 27% of organisations offered beginner training.

CySure’s simple-to-use, web-based Virtual Online Security Officer (VOSO) incorporates a comprehensive range of features such as remote monitoring and secure configuration of all networked devices, asset mapping, vulnerability scanning and patching, dashboards to display compliance progress against selected standards, as well as online security training videos for continual staff training. VOSO reduces the requirement for expensive in-house cyber security consultants or compliance officers, mitigates the risk of law suits and regulatory fines and ensures employees are trained regularly and kept informed of the latest cyber security updates.

Joe Collinwood, Chief Executive Officer of CySure concluded, “By underestimating the true impact of a cyber attack, small businesses are putting themselves at significant financial and commercial risk. Managing risk from inside the organisation is vital and relies upon the application of a consistent set of policies and processes, backed up by continual employee training. By utilising VOSO which incorporates leading cyber security standards, SMEs can benefit from the expertise of online cyber security consultants at a fraction of the cost, enabling them to create robust, best-practice policies to help keep their organisations safe.”
