OmniSecuritas Technologies Inc.

We trust CYDEF because we trust the people at CYDEF. From the Chairman and CEO to the COO and all the scientific and analytical staff, we have benefited enormously from knowing and working with them. All our interactions with CYDEF have been characterized by competence, empathy, and outstanding integrity. The people at CYDEF are why we inherently trust CYDEF as a corporation and partner.

Bernard Gibbs
President & General Manager
Maritime Business College

CYDEF gives us the means to not only safeguard the campus at large, but the means to educate students, faculty and staff, when they download and install unapproved or unsafe software on their systems. CYDEF has become a cornerstone of our Policy Enforcement tool framework.

At MDK Business Law, we work every day with technology and other knowledge-based businesses. As you can imagine, our legal team is privy to very sensitive client information which we access from a variety of locations and devices. Prior to working with the CYDEF team, we lacked visibility into our cybersecurity situation but we knew that we needed to take proactive measures to keep our clients’ data secure. CYDEF provides us with peace of mind through the use of SMART-Monitor on all of our workstations. We’re experts in the law, not cybersecurity, so we are very pleased that CYDEF provides us with a first-class solution that secures our confidential information from malicious attacks.

Yesterday I mentioned our relationship with CYDEF and encouraged police services to start looking further out for protection. Relying only on our managers and leaders is near sighted protection. We need over the horizon assistance and constant monitoring.

 

I hope you get some inquiries from public safety agencies. I enjoyed reading an recent article in the media that included CYDEF as a top 10 new IT company in Canada.

Scott Tod, Chief of Police

We were looking for additional coverage from the increasing threats of ransomware and malware. The peace of mind in having an additional layer of protection, coupled with the unique approach CYDEF uses, led us to give them a try. The SolarWinds supply chain attack really made us look at what we’re currently doing and what else might be out there to help us stay secure.

 

Being a K12 public school division, we’re extremely budget-conscious. We maintain best-practices and spend accordingly on security, but some solutions are simply too far out of reach for us. It’s challenging when vendors don’t differentiate non-profit, education customers from corporate enterprises. Every dollar we spend in IT is a dollar that isn’t being spent on educating students. So, we’re always trying to balance.

 

I’ve struggled with solutions that are all-encompassing, that want to offer a multitude of layered solutions that often feel like they’ve been cobbled together by acquisition. Where you end up taking one step forward but two steps back in another area, where the proposed solution doesn’t integrate well with our environment or requires the kind of care and feeding that we don’t have from an FTE perspective. Finding something that is simple to deploy, easy to manage and just does a good job without any adverse side effects for our environment is really a win/win for all involved. When it’s affordable, that’s even better.

 

I really wanted to see alerts to things that we weren’t previously being alerted to. And that’s exactly what happened. And I wanted to see it in a succinct manner. I was worried we’d be inundated with alerts and we’d have to sift through the noise. But that’s not been the case at all. We’re alerted to real, actionable items and we can react accordingly.

 

It’s the additional layer and knowledge that we have another tool in our protection. I wasn’t looking to CYDEF to replace any of our existing measures. Instead, I wanted to add an additional layer and it’s done just that for us.

 

Our experience with CYDEF has been excellent. They took the time to get to know us and garnered trust by working with us to tune their software to our environment. They committed time and resources to us in the beginning where few other vendors have done so. Their product does what they say it does and has easily fit into our infrastructure without taxing resources both human and technical on our side.

Cyber exposure is troublesome in Switzerland. Many businesses experience frequent and extensive attacks. Finding a tool like SMART-Monitor quickly eased the pain of frequent attacks.

Theo Musallam

As an IT Consultant, I’m exposed to a range of technological and cybersecurity solutions. I recommend CYDEF to my clients for their unique technology combined with manual intervention. The approach really reduces workload while ensuring a network environment is totally secure.

We’ve partnered with CYDEF to bring another level of enterprise-grade security to our cloud desktop service. Now, out-of-the-box, our customers get a managed security service that continually monitors and responds to cyberattacks.

Finding a cyber security solution gets a little tricky when you’re operating on several continents, and in very different facilities. CYDEF’s managed solutions provide the capacity, support and flexibility to keep Metro’s network environment secure.

JDS

With CYDEF’s support, we have achieved our stated goal of being “best-in-class” as a company when it comes to protecting our systems, our work, and our clients’ information.

Mecka

The team behind SMART-Monitor is nothing short of amazing. They are proactive and responsive. They don’t miss a thing. Even the smallest anomaly becomes a priority until the team understands what’s happening.

Managing, updating and securing a highly distributed network of servers and workstations without interrupting their service is a huge issue for our company. By working with CYDEF, we benefit from a managed service designed to continuously monitor and respond to cyberattacks.
