Speaking during the unveiling of the products in Lagos, the ESET’s Country Manager, Olufemi Ake, stated that ransomware was a big threat to organisations as it could encrypt important files, drop ransom notes for payment in bitcoins and cripple the entire infrastructure.

According to him, the West African market now had access to upgrade or subscribe to the newly launched enterprise products and services that could guard against known and unknown threats.

He said, “These powerful new tools, which fit into the Gartner CARTA framework, help organisations to prevent, detect, predict and resolve all forms of known and unknown threats.

“This is based on our multi-layered technology with metadata from each of these layers processed to our ESET LiveGrid cloud systems, providing further intelligence to our machine learning algorithms. These automated systems, in combination with the expertise of our researchers and engineers, enable us to prevent these threats at the network level before they hit the network.

“This solution is fully customisable, enabling customers to tailor the solution to their needs, and it provides vastly more visibility for complete prevention, detection and response against all types of cyberthreats with continuous management, visibility and monitoring of all products and threats from a single pane of glass.

As part of the new line of enterprise security solutions, ESET team of executives described the brand-new ESET Security Management Centre as a revamp of the renowned online console, ESET Remote Administrator.

They said the online console provides not only complete network visibility and full security management via one-single pane of glass, but also fully customisable reporting and single-click threat remediation, adding important complexity-minimising elements to the whole suite.

“We understand global enterprise increasingly requires cybersecurity solutions that are more tailored to their specific needs, because we cooperate with a large number of them at the country level,” the Chief Technology Officer at ESET, Juraj Malcho, stated.

“Get your hands on our latest offering and you’ll see how easily manageable an enterprise security solution can be,” he added.
