As part of its market expansion plan, CYFIRMA, a threat discovery and cyber-intelligence platform company, funded by Goldman Sachs, Zodius Capital and Z3Partners, today announced its new strategic partnership with Pacific Tech Group, a value added distributor for cybersecurity, data protection, managed security services and IOT security solutions.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated digital transformation – what would have taken three years to digitized has now been compressed to three months. This rapid pace has resulted in many new attack surfaces rendering new vulnerabilities which organizations were never prepared for. Conventional approach with perimeter and layered defence is proving to be no match for well-funded and highly creative cyber criminals. We are thrilled to bring CYFIRMA’s intelligence-driven approach to cybersecurity to the SEA market and we are confident the solution will close the gap on how organizations here manage cyber risk and build effective cybersecurity strategies,“ Andy Woo, Co-Founder and Regional Director, Pacific Tech.

“The world is steadily gravitating towards further fragmentation due to nationalistic agendas and the race for geopolitical supremacy. The pandemic and uncertain economic outlook have exacerbated cyber warfare and created opportunities for corporate espionage. We have seen over 600% increase in phishing, malware, brute forces, and web-based attacks in the last four months. This worrying trend requires companies to relook at how cybersecurity posture is managed and strengthened. We believe having visibility to threats at the early stage where hackers are planning their exploits will give organizations the much-needed advantage to fend off imminent attacks. We look forward to working closely with Pacific Tech to make SEA a safer place for businesses to digitalize and thrive,” Kumar Ritesh, Founder and CEO, CYFIRMA.
