Companies of All Sizes Can Receive Customized, Tight Digital Security With
Artificial Intelligence (AI) Predictors That Can Foresee Attacks Before They Happen
TORONTO, Jan. 17, 2019 /CNW/ - Iristel Inc., Canada's fastest-growing telecom services provider, is moving into the cybersecurity space to offer all-sized firms the tools and peace of mind previously reserved for those companies with huge resources to spend on digital security.
Recent high-profile breaches, global ransomware attacks and the scourge of cryptomining – a trending and more sophisticated form of theft – clearly demonstrate that no one is immune to modern cybersecurity threats. The Iristel cybersecurity team has decades of experience and expertise managing information systems of huge corporations in fields such as pharmaceutical and financial services.
"We are very excited to be getting into the security space and with such a strong team of experts," says Iristel CEO Samer Bishay. "Every business – from five employees to 5,000 or more – requires security in the midst of increasing sophistication of cyber criminals. With our Cybersecurity-as-a-Service (CaaS), organizations of all sizes can obtain the protection and monitoring they require. I can't say all attacks will stop, but it's all about mitigating and reducing risk as new threats arise consistently everyday."
The newly setup unit is dedicated to providing comprehensive cybersecurity services including consulting, advisory, 24/7/365 monitoring, incident response, vulnerability assessments, penetration testing and much more.
"Our Next Generation Security Operation Centre is built with an artificial intelligence layer that provides customers with predictive analytics aimed at preventing attacks even before they occur," Mr. Bishay says. "Our quest is to give customers the tightest security possible at the best price possible. Iristel was built on disruptive technology and over the past 20 years we've grown by implementing ideas from several disruptive technologies. Cybersecurity fits perfectly into our portfolio of products and services."
By leveraging the expertise within Iristel Cybersecurity, clients can obtain customized solutions, not off-the-shelf and inadequate products, that can by tailored to their technology resources budget and corporate needs.
