Although most of the businesses worldwide have been shut down during COVID-19 pandemic, cybercriminals haven’t been taking any time off. In fact, cyberattacks worldwide have spiked during this time with hackers finding new ways to exploit the current conditions brought on by lockdowns worldwide.
In a bid to offer better security infrastructure for organizations, Avosec, the UK-based organization providing managed IT services, has reportedly launched a new SOC (Security Operations Centre) for end-user clients.
From small businesses to large organizations, the company will offer its premium cybersecurity protection solutions to secure all aspects of business security including emails, content filtering, anti-virus protection, and disaster recovery. The company’s clients will also have access to one-on-one IT helpdesk support when needed.
Speaking on which, James Norris, CEO at Avosec said that the company’s new SOC service would provide clients with content filtering, patch management, and anti-virus services, and would go further into fully managed back-up and disaster recovery support.
He added that the clients would have the assurance of knowing their network, online activities, and email systems are completely safeguarded, while never having to do any kind of technical work themselves.
With offices in London (England),Pune (India), and Sofia (Bulgaria), Avosec has ample resources and staff to offer assistance and monitor cybersecurity for its clients around the clock.
Organizations worldwide have been seen as an increase in security threats and attacks during the COVID-19 pandemic. In the last week of March, technology giant Microsoft recorded 110,000 phishing attacks on offices and businesses.
Recently, the government of India has also issued a notice regarding cyberattacks against individuals and businesses, where cybercriminals may use current pandemic situation as bait to take financial as well as personal information.
