How businesses benefit from MTN Business cyber security solutions

 ·2 Jun 2022

MTN Business believes that cyber security is one of the most important considerations for South African businesses as digital attacks can bring down your entire business.

This can cause extensive financial losses and will reduce customer satisfaction if they cannot access your services.

CISOs are the people most responsible for the security and privacy of their business’s data, which is why MTN Business sees them as gatekeepers and crucial strategic business enablers.

Businesses that need to reinforce their competitive position must recognise the value of the Information Security if they want to succeed.

This is why MTN offers an extensive range of cyber security products and services that support these efforts.

MTN Business’s cyber security suite comprises four key categories and provides comprehensive functionality to businesses.

Zero trust networks

MTN believes that successful CISOs must prioritise zero trust models to secure their networks and protect their businesses.

Zero trust models see both external and internal traffic as unsafe by default, and verify everything before allowing access. This model ensures that businesses are at a much lower risk of allowing unsafe traffic to be transmitted across their network.

MTN Business’s comprehensive cyber security services help your CISO prioritise building a zero-trust network.

“When advising our clients about deploying, implementing, and maintaining a zero-trust network, MTN Business begins by identifying the product surface and mapping transaction flows,” said MTN Business Head of Enterprise, Paul Jolliffe.

“MTN Business will then build the architecture and implement the appropriate policies and procedures as part of ongoing maintenance to ensure a consistently high level of security.”
