Asian cybersecurity consultancy and services company Cybots has entered the Australian market.

Founded in Singapore in 2018 – one of the world’s most prominent markets for cybersecurity – the 120-strong international cyber security firm (five offices across Asia) is launching in ANZ with its headquarters in Melbourne.

Cybots is on a mission to make cybersecurity easier, flexible and more affordable for every professional service business as the influx of cybercrime continues to grow across Australia and New Zealand.

Specialised in AI-powered solutions, Cybots designs and tailors solutions incorporating advanced artificial intelligence, that help businesses advance their protection against fast-growing and complex cybercrime.

The decision to launch the local market comes in response to the rise in cyber attacks Australia has seen in the past year, with cybercrimes costing the economy AUD $1 billion annually. In Australia, 87% of businesses believe they are safe from cyberattacks because they use antivirus software alone, yet 64% businesses have experienced disruption from cyber attacks.

Gary Denson, CEO and Country Manager of Cybots professional service businesses in Australia and New Zealand are at high risk for cyberattacks such as email phishing, malware, ransomware, denial of service or watering hole attacks. “The biggest challenge facing businesses is that modern cyber threats are usually well-hidden in their network,” he said.

“This lack of visibility is the real danger, and is an issue that we are aiming to solve. Business owners, senior executives and directors should take a proactive approach to easily accessible cybersecurity and not wait until their business has been attacked to implement a solution. Our experts have been in this industry for over 15 years and we have seen how far ahead of the curve modern cyber criminals have become.”

As part of their growth strategy across Australia, Cybots is always looking for distribution partners or introducers to recommend prospective clients who may be in need of affordable, light-touch, AI-driven cybersecurity solutions.
