Cyber security is one of the biggest challenges to business, governments and national security organisations worldwide.
Local IT experts, Sigma and Cactus, have joined forces to bring a market-leading approach to cyber security. White Cloud Trust Lockdown solution, based in the islands and available globally, provides access to revolutionary patented cyber security software to businesses of all sizes.
“The majority of traditional ‘antivirus’ software solutions are simply not up to the job,” Mark Trenchard, Director of Cactus, said. “Traditional security software works by checking inbound traffic to your system against a list of known threats. This reactive model simply cannot keep up. Trust Lockdown flips security screening on its head, using the concept of prevention to keep out any threats to your system.”
Cyber-crime currently generates more than $450 billion per annum. For the perpetrators that’s larger than the entire global drug trade. There have been more attacks and new bits of malware produced in the first quarter of last year than the whole of 2016; approximately 4 million an hour.
In the Cybersecurity industry there is no getting around the value and cost savings of prevention compared to the more significant losses of remediation.
Robert Sillars CEO of Sigma said: “finding a credible, effective solution for cyber security protection is paramount. Sigma & Cactus believe that Trust Lockdown is that solution and a ‘must have’ for any business. We are delighted to partner with Cactus in the global launch of this revolutionary cybersecurity software, demonstrating to the world, I believe, the skills and expertise that are available here in the islands.”
Cactus is the Executive Agent for sales of Trust Lockdown and Sigma is the exclusive Channel Island and UK sales partner of Cactus. As partners, they will be focused to provide the number one source of knowledge and solutions in cyber security.
Over the coming months, Sigma and Cactus will be rolling out a series of workshops and presentations to help inform and educate the Jersey and Guernsey business communities about the issue and opportunity.
