Ubiquity launches cybersecurity solution for NZ businesses

Auckland-based marketing and automation provider Ubiquity has launched a new cybersecurity solution to focus on protecting clients against growing security threats. With cybercrime costs hitting an estimated $400 million per year and cybercrime being one of the biggest risks in the country at the moment, security needs aren't being met.

Ubiquity also cites statistics that show 45% of organisations have no cyber response plan. While New Zealand directors may be aware of the risks, it turns out that complexity is why security is being ignored in boardrooms.

Marketing automation provider Ubiquity says that from experience, clients are demanding a world class security approach. The problem was that security companies were focused on technology and products, rather than the end-to-end approach including frameworks, policies and procedures.

The company then started analysing cybersecurity with the goal of developing a framework that could manage information security initiatives.

“We looked hard and deep into ISO frameworks which govern Information Security Management System and then tailored it to suit our business. We developed a framework alongside implementing key technologies that every business would need,” the company says.

The result is CyberSecure 360, a modular, end-to-end solution that the company is now offering other New Zealand businesses.

The solution comprises a security roadmap; perimeter security solutions, HR and staff security policies and its flagship monitoring product that alerts the team to threats 24/7.

CyberSecure 360 is a certified MSSP partner with AlienVault and recommends Webroot antivirus.
