Rogers partners with Trustwave, announces new suite of cybersecurity solutions

Hackers

Cybersecurity is not only a hot topic, but with all the recent data hacks, it’s also incredibly important.

In 2016, security spending in Canada is expected to exceed $2 billion.

Research provided by information security firm Trustwave states that businesses face an average of 166 cyber attacks every week, but take nearly two months to detect an attack – largely due to a lack of tools and resources. In 2016, security spending in Canada is expected to exceed $2 billion.

Rogers, Canada’s largest telecommunications company, announced today that it has partnered with Trustwave to create leapfrog, a suite of global cybersecurity solutions as a service to protect Canadian businesses. Rogers says the service will give IT professionals the correct tools and resources to detect and prevent against global cyber-attacks to keep their business secure. The core focus of leapfrog will be 24x7x365 real-time monitoring of network infrastructure, scanning and security testing through its diagnostic tools, and also dedicated support.

“Cybersecurity is the number one concern for Canadian businesses of all sizes, and many lack the resources, time and expertise to manage the reality of cyber threats today,” said Nitin Kawale, President, Enterprise Business Unit, Rogers Communications. “We are introducing solutions to our customers of all sizes, with local and global operations, that are backed by one of the world’s cybersecurity leaders, Trustwave. These solutions are offered as a service to give our customers peace of mind knowing their networks and data are secured.”

Leapfrog has no firm release date, but Rogers says the service will be available “early next year.”
