Redington is empowering partners to fortify their customers’ businesses with robust cybersecurity solutions and specialised security services across Africa.
Redington is participating at the inaugural edition of GITEX Africa, the continent’s largest all-inclusive tech event, taking place from 31st May to 2nd June in Morocco, under the theme of ‘Accelerating Transformation’.
Businesses across the continent are seeking experts to help enhance security measures for their growing digital infrastructures. According to a recent report, Africa’s internet economy is expected to contribute $180 billion to its overall economy by 2025, rising to $712 billion by 2050. This is expected to result in increased job creation and innovation in Africa. However, this also means the risk of cyber threats and emergence of new vulnerabilities will be at an all-time high across the continent.
Redington’s mission of accelerating transformation includes fast-tracking cloud and digital technology adoption, designing security-first strategies and integrating cybersecurity solutions and services right from the beginning of an organisation’s digital transformation journey.
Redington houses global names in the cybersecurity space and is constantly looking to bring in new and innovative solutions to the market. With its award-winning MSSP brand DigiGlass by Redington, the company is offering African businesses the capabilities to address challenges such as skills shortage, inconsistent processes and disparate tools, lack of context and threat intel and so on. The MSSP enables channel partners and drives organisations to adopt new and advanced technologies involving defense-in-depth strategies. It offers services around threat lifecycle management, perimeter security, risk advisory consulting, vulnerability management, application and API security, identity and access management, cloud and data security and so on, securing any business from end-to-end.
The DigiGlass team will be present at GITEX Africa to answer comprehensively about Managed Security Services and why African businesses cannot do without it in today’s increasingly digital era.
Dharshana Kosgalage, Head of Technology Solutions Group, Redington, said, “Cybersecurity is a critical issue for Africa, as the continent is increasingly getting connected to the internet. Businesses need to be aware of the risks and take steps to protect themselves from cyber-attacks. Cyberattacks are a growing threat to businesses in Africa, costing them billions of dollars each year. Redington and its channel ecosystem can help organisations in Africa to improve their cybersecurity posture by providing a range of services including security consulting and training. Redington’s MSSP offering, DigiGlass, can help businesses to protect themselves from cyber-attacks 24/7/365. DigiGlass provides a comprehensive suite of security services, including threat intelligence, incident response, and security monitoring. Redington and its channel partners are committed to helping businesses and governments in Africa to improve their cybersecurity posture and reduce the risk of cyberattacks”.
