CANBERRA and REDWOOD CITY, Calif. — May 25, 2021 — Anomali, the leader in intelligence-driven cybersecurity solutions, today announced a partnership with Australian threat intelligence company Cybermerc. Their merged solutions will strengthen Aushield Defend, Australia’s national threat investigation and sharing platform, which protects organisations against the latest cyber threats.
“The entire APAC region is inundated with cyber attacks. Businesses are keenly aware of how damaging threats like Olympic Destroyer can be and know that Advanced Persistent Threats, backed by hostile nations such as North Korea, are always looking for ways to penetrate networks,” said Stree Naidu, Anomali’s General Manager for Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ).
“I’m excited to be aligning with a company known and trusted for defending Australian networks against the most sophisticated cyber attacks.”
Canberra-based Cybermerc is committed to lifting the cyber capability of all Australian organisations. The company’s mission is to build a collective cyber defence by connecting Australian government, industry and academia.
Aushield Defend provides an enhanced intelligence feed of analysed data from a wide range of sources, including Cybermerc’s own sovereign security technologies. Defend provides organisations with information on the latest attacks, key risks and the Indicators of Compromise (IoC) needed to protect Australian networks.
The recipient of two rounds of federal funding through the AustCyber Project Fund, Aushield Defend brings government, business and industry together to share intelligence and protect against cyber threats.
Cybermerc’s Director of Aushield, Andrew Slater, says: “Australian organisations have been defending themselves in isolation. Cyber security is not a ‘me’ and ‘you’ problem – it is an ‘us’ problem and we can be far more effective together...we can be secure together.
“Aushield Defend evolves the traditional cyber threat intelligence consumption model by generating intelligence of the latest attacks and constantly updating security devices, creating a defensive cyber collaboration across the country.”
Cybermerc leverages machine-learning and Artificial Intelligence to strengthen Aushield Defend and provide defence grade cyber security detection and protection to Australian Small to Medium businesses and enterprise organisations at an affordable price point.
