EC-Council and Vinca Cyber form an alliance to support businesses and cybersecurity leaders in India by providing optimum managed services solutions, a combination of phishing simulations with ready-to-use training modules and anti-phishing preventive controls that give organizations and individuals the necessary tools to be secure in a virtually connected world.
India, October 1, 2021 – As businesses all over the globe anticipate the next wave of the pandemic, remote and hybrid working models are likely to persist. In these uncertain times, the limitations and benefits of a remote workforce have become clearer to organizations. Cybersecurity and digital business leaders can no longer rely on traditional security methods to safeguard their organizations from evolving cyber threats. Insider threats endanger businesses, have a long-term impact, and remain one of the major concerns for security leaders today.
The online world has ushered in innovative technologies like cloud-based apps, artificial intelligence, and internet of things devices to enhance business productivity, increase revenue, help strengthen the user experience, and empower organizations to facilitate remote work. However, technology frequently carries the risk of attack. To counter this, cybersecurity risk assessment modules must be integrated into organizations in which technology, people, and processes work together to provide a unified front for effective threat management.
As an EC-Council MSSP partner, Vinca Cyber is committed to helping small, midsize, and large organizations establish specialized industry solutions to manage network security issues for devices and systems such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems, intrusion prevention systems, antivirus software, virtual private networks, and more. By increasing cybersecurity awareness for employees, organizations are ensuring that their most important assets, human capital, work hand in hand with security teams to counter any attacks. This partnership complements Vinca Cyber’s total managed cybersecurity and SOC services. With EC-Council’s Aware solution, Vinca Cyber will be able to solve CISO’s biggest concern: having a security-aware workforce.
“EC-Council’s Aware solution is a wonderful tool that strengthens the CISO’s biggest weapon by creating a human firewall as a powerful deterrent to attacks,” says CEO and founder of Vinca Cyber Shreekumar Nair. “Today, more than 80% of cyberattacks are through phishing emails. With Aware, we have a powerful, comprehensive tool to conduct phishing, smishing, and vishing simulations that are perfectly designed to pass as genuine emails, making the simulation test a valuable exercise that allows the organization to increase and strengthen their employees.”
Commenting on the partnership, Jay Bavisi, President and CEO of the EC-Council Group, said, “Insider threats can cost organizations almost twice as much as external threats. Though their prevalence is well-known amongst organizations, especially post-pandemic, a lot remains to be done to prevent them. As our MSSP partner, Vinca Cyber has pledged to help businesses build a robust wall of cybersecurity. Through Aware, companies can train their employees to ward off the most pressing cyberattacks and thus prevent the catastrophic aftermath.”
