SYNAXON UK partnership with CyberSmart comes at exactly the right time for members

Warrington, 15 June 2020 – SYNAXON UK has received an enthusiastic response from its members to its new partnership with CyberSmart, the cybersecurity compliance specialist, as they look to ensure they are meeting the highest standards of protection and help their end-user customers do the same.

CyberSmart takes a unique approach to automating cybersecurity and compliance that is aligned with the government’s Cyber Essentials standards, giving businesses protection against over 99 percent of cyber incidents. The partnership has been formed at exactly the right time, said Mike Barron, Managing Director of SYNAXON UK.

“Cybersecurity is a huge issue and the importance of achieving Cyber Essentials certification and demonstrating that you are ready to protect your organisation, employees, and data, has never been greater. With more companies now operating virtually and most employees working at home, that’s becoming even more crucial, so our partnership with CyberSmart has come at exactly the right time. We’ve have received an immediate and extremely positive response from SYNAXON UK members who are using CyberSmart to get certified themselves and help and encourage their customers to follow their lead.”

SYNAXON UK members are able to engage with CyberSmart through the group’s account management team and have access to preferential support and enablement resources. A number of members have already made use of CyberSmart to achieve Cyber Essentials for their own businesses and are also making their customers aware of the opportunity.

Hugh Furness, Head of Channel Strategy at CyberSmart, said: “The partnership with SYNAXON UK enables CyberSmart to reach out further to the channel to the UK’s SMB business community, for whom cybersecurity is becoming a vitally important issue. By becoming compliant Cyber Essential compliant, businesses can clearly demonstrate to their customers and partners that they have excellent protection in place and are therefore, have a sincere and professional approach and are safe to do business with.”

CyberSmart’s solutions reduce the Cyber Essentials certification time from months to hours, making remote auditing simple while also checking, fixing, and monitoring compliance around the clock. A centralised dashboard and mobile app make all relevant information easy to access and interpret.

Created in 2017, CyberSmart was formed by a group of forward-thinking security experts who noticed that many companies needed to protect themselves and achieve information security standards, but ultimately found the process too complicated, or were limited by financial or human resources. Its key goal is to enable every organisation to easily comply with recognised standards and protect their data and infrastructure. By making security accessible, CyberSmart has achieved rapid growth and is today used to protect tens of thousands of users.
