Rogers Launches Suite of Cybersecurity Solutions to Protect Canadian Businesses

Canadian businesses can take two months to detect a breac due to a lack of tools and resources, according to the 2015 Trustwave Global Security Report.

To address this challenge, Rogers Communications announced today a new portfolio of leapfrog cybersecurity solutions that will help Canadian businesses to detect and prevent against global cyber-attacks.

“Cybersecurity is the number one concern for Canadian businesses of all sizes, and many lack the resources, time and expertise to manage the reality of cyber threats today” said Nitin Kawale, President, Enterprise Business Unit, Rogers Communications. “We are introducing solutions to our customers of all sizes, with local and global operations, that are backed by one of the world’s cybersecurity leaders, Trustwave. These solutions are offered as a service to give our customers peace of mind knowing their networks and data are secured.”

Rogers’ new suite of cybersecurity solutions will be offered to customers through a partnership with Trustwave.

“Teaming with an industry leader like Rogers Communications will bring much-needed cybersecurity and managed security services capabilities to the Canadian market,” said Trustwave Chief Executive Officer and President Robert J. McCullen. “Rogers’ extensive expertise combined with Trustwave’s experience to deliver enterprise-grade managed security to businesses in 96 countries is a powerful combination that will help businesses fight cybercrime and protect data.”

Canadian businesses today spend 70% of their time “keeping the lights on,” and only 30% innovating, according to a Vision Critical survey of Canadian business leaders. Cybersecurity solutions offered as a service will free up time and resources for customers to focus on growing their business, says Rogers.
