Real Secure emphasizes the importance of cybersecurity for SMEs

Real Secure has strongly emphasized the importance of cybersecurity for SMEs in the UAE as most of the small businesses are with legacy systems and don’t engage in regular IT audits, which makes them a good target for spammers and ransomware attacks.

“According to UAE Ministry of Economy, the SMEs sector represents more than 94 percent of the total number of companies operating in the country and employs more than 86 percent of the private sector’s workforce. A robust technology framework is a backbone for any company, especially in this tech-dependent business eco-system. We strongly believe that SMEs are the bedrock of any economy, and it contributes significantly to the country’s GDP, and they need to be protected from such potent threats,” stated Rateesh Mohan, Managing Director & Founder of Real Secure.

The company takes all the necessary steps to protect organizations from cyber attacks which cause downtime and heavy financial loss. Real Secure provides security solutions and assessments to large organizations, and aim to provide the same level of expertise and security focus to the SME sector through its managed services business.

Mohan said “Our managed services division currently supports companies, mostly SMEs in the UAE with its IT infrastructure, as some of them don’t have the budget to have a full-scale IT department. Furthermore, we understand the criticality of security in today’s technology landscape, and all our solutions are developed keeping this key factor in mind. We ensure security is at the forefront of any project that we embark upon and is integrated into everything that we do including developing new applications, cyber security, implementing physical security solutions such as CCTV, or deploying pre-existing solutions.”

“Ransomware actors often target and threaten to sell or leak exfiltrated data or authentication information. Hackers take advantage of security weak spots to steal sensitive data or lock files. Companies need to take cybersecurity seriously and invest in it with adequate resources. Secondly, there needs to be more highly educated cybersecurity experts ready to address the menace of ransomware attacks that organizations are currently facing,” added Mohan.
