Telspace Africa Announces Its Collaboration With DFIRLABS. Information Technology company Telspace took to LinkedIn to announce that it has partnered with DFIRLABS. The post, “We are excited to announce our partnership with DFIRLABS, a company that shares our values and our passions for trying to make the world a better place!”
Telspace Africa was established in 2002 by CEO Dino Covotsos, who is still actively involved in the business. As cybercrime rises exponentially and cybercriminals find new ways to gain unlawful access into corporate infrastructures in all industries, organisations are often at a loss at what to do. New software vulnerabilities are found daily, web application attacks leave websites vulnerable and viruses become increasingly silent and stealthy. Often, the simplest things such as weak passwords and uneducated staff can be the cause of an entire company infrastructure being compromised.
Telspace Africa’s main aim is to make a company or organisation as unattractive to cybercriminals as possible while keeping their sensitive financial and client data safe. This is done in a variety of ways including attack and penetration testing, vulnerability assessments, training, and keeping the company constantly safe with a month-to-month service level agreement. “Although the core focus of Telspace Africa will always be on offensive security and vendor independent reporting, as part of our strategy we have also been assessing partnerships in areas that tie in with the services that we currently provide,” Tim Quintal, COO of Telspace Africa told IT Web.
“At a time where breaches are becoming ubiquitous and with all businesses at risk as a result, it is imperative that companies not only have incident response and digital forensics capabilities through trusted partners, but also ensure that they are incident ready in order to facilitate the recovery and investigation efforts should a breach occur,” Quintal added.
