Mumbai: Cybersecurity firm DNIF has appointed Orin Corporation as its value-added distributor (VAD) for Sri Lanka and Maldives markets. With this partnership, DNIF is expanding its reach to the island nations in the Indian Ocean.
Orin Corporation, a fully owned subsidiary of South Asian Technologies Group is a speciality cybersecurity distributor based in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
The partnership aligns with an increasing focus on digital transformation and cybersecurity in Sri Lanka. In fact, the Sri Lanka Computer Emergency Readiness Team (SLCERT) has mandated to protect Sri Lanka’s Information Systems Infrastructure as 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 software. A significant number of websites targeting the government and private sector were compromised in Sri Lanka.
SLCERT witnessed a 460% massive surge in incidents reported to a total of 16,367 in 2020 compared to the previous year.
Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs) account for 80% of the Sri Lankan economy, according to the Secretariat of Senior Ministers, Sri Lankan Government.
Given the Sri Lankan market, leveraging DNIF HyperScale SIEM with Cognitive intelligence and technologies like AI and ML would help organisations in dealing with the threat landscape and minimize the SOC costs.
The partnership between DNIF and Orin Corporation aims to help Sri Lanka defend against the most complicated and advanced cyber threats targeted at businesses and government establishments.
“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,” said Ashan Mudalige, Director/CEO – Orin.
“We look forward to our partnership with Orin and would be working jointly towards learning and building a robust defensive infrastructure for customers in the region. DNIF HyperScale SIEM is cited to help businesses have the right security posture to meet growth aspirations and keeping the total ownership cost low,” said Shomiron Das Gupta, Founder and CEO – DNIF.
