Global cybersecurity firm DNIF partners with ORIN Corporation (Pvt) Ltd, a fully owned subsidiary of South Asian Technologies Group (Pvt) Ltd., a specialty cybersecurity distributor headquartered in Colombo, as their Value-Added Distributor (VAD) for the Sri Lanka and Maldives market.
The partnership comes at a vital time as Sri Lanka is rapidly implementing digital transformation initiatives and scaling up cybersecurity measures. According to the Sri Lanka Computer Emergency Readiness Team (SLCERT), mandated to protect Sri Lanka’s Information Systems Infrastructure, financial frauds targeting local businesses have seen a massive upturn during the year 2020. There has been a significant increase in the spread of ransomware and malicious softwares. A significant number of website compromises targeting government and private sector organisations were recorded. Incidents reported to Sri Lanka CERT have increased to 16,376 in the year 2020, a massive increase of 460% as compared to the previous year.
According to the Secretariat of Senior Ministers, Sri Lanka, Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs) make up a large part of Sri Lanka’s economy, accounting for 80 percent of all businesses. For a budget-mindful market, DNIF HyperScale SIEM is the perfect combination of the latest cutting-edge technology that brings together AI, ML, and Cognitive intelligence focusing on detecting and defining the threat landscape at superspeed, ingesting data at petabyte-scales, and minimising the SOC costs for organisations.
This strategic partnership aims to defend Sri Lanka against the most complicated and advanced cyber threats targeted at businesses and government establishments.
Speaking on the partnership, Ashan Mudalige, the Director/CEO of Orin said, “This partnership comes at an opportune time as companies in Sri Lanka are battling an unprecedented wave of cyberattacks. DNIF Hyperscale SIEM will offer clients the right security posture to defend themselves from cyber hacktivists and threat perpetrators aimed at destabilising the economy.”
