Securing the future

In recent years, the landscape of our digital world has undergone unprecedented changes, reshaping the way we live and work. This has inevitable led to an increase in the scale, frequency and sophistication of cyberthreats. A recent report states that South Africa has seen a significant upsurge of attacks in 2023 putting all organisations at risk.

In response to these changes, organisations are actively seeking solutions to protect themselves against cyber threats. Security teams, once positioned at the perimeter, now find themselves at the epicentre, navigating the challenges posed by digital transformation, the ongoing pandemic, geopolitical tensions, talent shortages, and increasingly sophisticated cyber threats.
