Melbourne, 9th of April, 2018 – CyberRisk, one of Australia’s leading information security, technology risk management and privacy consulting firms has been named as the Cylance ANZ partner of the year 2017/18.
Cylance Inc., is the company that revolutionised the antivirus and endpoint protection industry with true AI powered prevention that blocks malware, fileless attacks, and today’s most advanced cyberthreats.
Cylance has named its top partners for Australia and New Zealand at its first APAC Partner Advisory Council event held recently in Sydney.
The event played host to fifteen partners from six countries and was attended by six global executives from Cylance to discuss the vendor’s strategy for Asia-Pacific and how to capitalise on its recent growth.
As part of the event, Cylance named Melbourne’s CyberRisk as its ANZ partner of the year. CyberRisk was formed in late 2016 and earned platinum partner status with Cylance after less than a year.
“Our investment and commitment in Cylance and its products and services have allowed CyberRisk to support many organisations’ security strategy,” CyberRisk Director Leong Wang said, “Information security has made its way to the top of the list of priorities for our customers, and they are increasingly turning to us for solutions that help them stay ahead of the most advanced threats and attacks. Cylance enables our customers to keep their organisation’s safe and secure from zero-day threats and malware.”
Jason Duerden, Cylance ANZ Country Manager said that, “At Cylance our prevention-first approach to cyber security and endpoint protection, is key to our mission of protecting and preventing cyber attacks on every endpoint under the sun. CyberRisk have been an integral part of educating Australian businesses on the change in the threat landscape, why organisations need to adapt to artificial intelligence as a prevention strategy, and how to implement and optimise Cylance’s technology into the customer’s security architecture”.
“We’re thrilled and honoured to have received this award”, said Wayne Tufek, Director of CyberRisk, “We would like to thank all of our fantastic customers who have helped us to achieve this accolade.
