Sri Lanka Telecom to offer CYREN cybersecurity solution


CYREN, a leading provider of cloud-based security solutions today announced that it signed Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) as one of its latest resellers.

SLT will now offer the cloud-based CYREN WebSecurity solution that provides advanced cybersecurity and zero-hour threat protection, the Virginia-based company said in a press release today.

CYREN WebSecurity will be offered through SLT's new "akaza" cloud computing service.

Managed by CYREN's security and operations experts on a purpose-built cloud platform, CYREN WebSecurity delivers best-of-breed protection without requiring akaza customers to purchase hardware or acquire in-house security expertise. Through a proven Security as a Service (SecaaS) model, CYREN WebSecurity provides rapid identification of advanced cyber threats in combination with leading malware and phishing protection for devices and data regardless of type or location.

"Sri Lanka Telecom is pleased to partner with CYREN to offer our customers proven security technology alongside our cloud computing service," said Lalith de Silva, Group CEO at SLT.

"We see CYREN WebSecurity as a robust solution to an ever-mounting security hurdle as organizations look to fend off threats associated with today's increasingly mobile workforce and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies. It's yet another step toward providing SLT customers with ongoing peace of mind as well as increased cost efficiencies."

"CYREN recognizes that security and performance are mission critical to an organization such as SLT," said Lior Samuelson, CEO and Chairman of the Board at CYREN. "CYREN WebSecurity provides premier cloud-based protection through its trusted CYREN GlobalView Cloud infrastructure that is relied upon by many of the largest companies around the globe. We are honored to have SLT as a member of our worldwide channel network."

Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) is the nation's number one integrated ICT solutions provider and the leading backbone infrastructure services provider. The Company is also the major provider of telecommunication networks and services to top enterprises representing all economic sectors and facilitating them with seamless and sophisticated connectivity to carry out local and global business operations.
