Latest news reflects trend of UK companies taking proactive steps to combat advances in cyber-criminal activities
Belfast, 7th September 2021
Technology company Callmy has appointed Skurio, the Digital Risk Protection company to enhance its secure app-based lone working and mass notification services with cybersecurity notifications.
Skurio’s Digital Risk Protection platform will be integrated into the Callmy Mass Notification service, which delivers encrypted, critical communication via the Callmy Alert App. The app-based capability means there is less chance of urgent cyber threat-related messages being lost in busy email and SMS inboxes and a secure cloud based delivery ensures resilient communications can be maintained during the most challenging situations.
Skurio’s cybersecurity solution will identify potential cyber threats and detect data leaks across Callmy customers’ digital supply chains. Round the clock, automated surface, deep and Dark Web monitoring for customers’ data and instant alerts will help them to act quickly to mitigate risk and prevent attacks.
Skurio’s CEO Jeremy Hendy said: “We are delighted to have been chosen by Callmy as the solution to protect their customers from digital risk. Callmy is an innovator in crisis communication who takes cybersecurity very seriously and is extending its service to ensure its customers are protected from data breaches and cyber threats. Adding Skurio to their portfolio allows Callmy customers to extend their defences beyond their network perimeters, protecting their data from cyber threats wherever it lives.”
He adds, “Cyber-related incidents are time-critical, and the faster a situation can be identified the faster it can be contained. Identifying an external threat or breach is only half the story, however – notifying stakeholders of what is happening is critical to a successful outcome.
“We are excited to have integrated Callmy Alert with Skurio”, commented Tony Watson, Founder and CEO of Callmy, “and believe this partnership will help our customers to respond and overcome the ever-present cyber threat”.
He adds. “Once the IT team has used their Skurio service to triage the situation, Callmy Alert can then be used to escalate communication to other stakeholders and members of staff. Messages can be securely delivered to smartphones, tablets, and desktops, helping to prevent access to infected or compromised systems. On average 100% of Callmy Alert messages are opened in under a minute, with 80% returning a response when required.”
