LAGOS, (CAJ News) – A NEW partnership has been announced to end cyber attacks in Nigeria.

This comes amid realisation the country is among the markets worst-hit by the problem.

Global online security firm, Arbor Networks, together with its value added distributor, Networks Unlimited, are partnering with the leading technology companies in Nigeria in order to provide a skilled service to the end customers in the region.

Staging an event at the end of the month at the Inter Continental hotel in Lagos, Arbor Networks and Networks Unlimited will demonstrate how the Arbor solution can assist companies in mitigating Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.

Bryan Hamman, territory manager for sub-Saharan Africa at Arbor Networks, said there was a huge requirement for skilled and capable vendors to provide East and West African companies with leading security solutions that could assist in the mitigation, detection and identification of such attacks.

“Arbor Networks, as the worldwide leader and top supplier of DDoS mitigation appliances, has the experience and technology to assist the carrier, enterprise and mobile market segments by combating and eliminating these detrimental attacks ; said Hamman.

He said encapsulating 15 years of experience in delivering security as well as network visibility solutions and products, Arbor Networks secures the networks of the world’s largest enterprise against advanced threats.

Nigeria has become one of Arbor’s main focus regions on the African continent and, as such, a strong emphasis has been placed on growing Arbor Networks as a brand and product in the region.

The African continent has seen an immense increase in these types of cyber incidents.
