Sri Lanka Telecom to Offer CYREN Cybersecurity Solution


CYREN (CYRN) , a cybersecurity solutions provider has announced that it has signed Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) as one of its latest resellers.

As part of the partnership, SLT will now offer the cloud-based CYREN WebSecurity solution that provides advanced cybersecurity and zero-hour threat protection to its set of customers in Sri Lanka.

As the national information and communications technology provider and the leading broadband and backbone infrastructure services provider in the country, Sri Lanka Telecom serves more than six million end users and 10,000 organizations, including the region’s largest corporate and government entities as well as small and medium-sized businesses.

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.”
