Cyber Audit Team (CAT), a leading provider of cyber security solutions, today announced it has partnered with Avertro, the world’s first Cyber Management Decision System (MDS), enhancing their existing virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) offering for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
Utilising Avertro’s CyberHQ® Platform, CAT will support SMBs, without the budget for a full-time CISO, in making well-informed and defensible decisions around their organisation’s cyber resilience. By delivering data-driven insights with precision, the offering provides invaluable intelligence for organisations looking to invest in or make decisions on improving their cyber security posture.
Managing Director of Cyber Audit Team Damian Seaton commented, “As the cyber threat landscape is constantly evolving, many clients, particularly those in the mid-market, struggle to develop an effective cyber security strategy aligned to their risk profile, resulting in limited budgets being spent without achieving key outcomes. Incorporating Avertro’s CyberHQ platform into our vCISO offering will deliver clients greater visibility around their cyber maturity in one platform whilst maintaining regulatory compliance and optimising their return on security investment.”
Quantifying and articulating cyber risk to the C-suite and the board can often be challenging for IT. This can often lead to difficulty in securing the necessary budget for critical cyber security initiatives. CAT’s vCISO will enable clients to visualise their cyber risk and maturity levels in real-time, providing the context they need to better guide investment discussions and make critical security decisions.
Ian Yip, CEO of Avertro, shared his enthusiasm about the new partnership, saying, “We are thrilled to have Cyber Audit Team join us as an Avertro partner, and we look forward to working together to help our shared customers along their cyber security journey. This collaboration underscores both companies’ commitment to providing more businesses with the information and solutions they need to make informed decisions and better protect their business, digital assets, and reputation.”
