Digi partners with Cisco to offer cloud-based cybersecurity solution to MSMEs and SMEs

Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (Digi) has joined hands with cybersecurity firm Cisco, to provide a cloud-based cybersecurity solution, Cisco Umbrella for its micro, small and medium enterprise (MSME and SME) customers.

The partnership aims to provide essential protection that enables businesses to connect securely on Digi’s network with Domain Name System or DNS-layer security. 

Cisco Umbrella protects customers by blocking requests to any fraudulent practice before a connection is established. It also allows users to connect securely on Digi’s network via mobile broadband from any device regardless of the location. 

The protection feature does not require any on-device installations or having to constantly update security patches to stay protected. 

Digi’s Chief Business Officer, Eugene Teh said as a trusted digital partner to SMEs, the company is committed to assisting SMEs on various aspects of digitalisation, and that includes providing quality and secure network as well as protecting businesses as they increasingly go digital.

“Today, secure Internet access with low touch is necessary for all businesses. It is an indispensable, vital element of an SME or micro business’s operations” said Cisco’s Managing Director, Cybersecurity Sales, APJC, Kerry Singleton.

It is noteworthy that, a recent independent security efficacy testing from AV-TEST found Cisco Umbrella leading in security efficacy as compared to its top competitors.
