Strategic alliance to mitigate cybercrime in Mauritius

BDO IT Consulting in Mauritius is now partners with Grove, the passionate and reputable EMEA cybersecurity expert, strengthening their cyber defense portfolio with Mimecast and Darktrace technologies

Leading cybersecurity vendor, BDO IT Consulting partnered with Grove, cybersecurity experts in the EMEA region, to form a strategic cyber alliance in Mauritius earlier this year in which they will assist enterprises in delivering advanced cybersecurity technologies to tackle network and email security challenges and mitigate cybercrime.

The partnership experience covers a wide range of industries in the EMEA region. Together, they’ve worked on projects in South Africa, Mauritius, Seychelles, Madagascar, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi, not excluding the Caribbean and UK regions.

Mauritius has always been taking a proactive approach toward cybersecurity and has made immense progression the field over the last few years. As per the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Cybersecurity Global Index 2017, Mauritius is ranked first in Africa and sixth in the world.

2018 Cyber Crime Predictions shows no sign of cybercriminal activity slowing down, and the responsibility is on organisations to continually review their cybersecurity strategies to protect valuable intellectual property and business information against theft and misuse without disrupting business innovation and growth. This posed a unique opportunity for BDO IT Consulting to collaborate with Grove in the fight against cybercrime in Mauritius.

Krishna Radhakeesoon, Manager at BDO IT Consulting, says the key for a good cyber defense is to have a plan and a strategic technology partner such as BDO IT Consulting and Grove. “It’s important for businesses to realise that they have to set up unique technology solutions before the attack happens. The bad guys won’t give you much time to react.”

Angel Khangale, Technology Consultant at Grove, stresses that Grove’s partnership with top international cybersecurity experts such as Mimecast and Darktrace offers an essential safety net to help businesses mitigate cyber threats. “At Grove we believe in providing state-of-the-art cybersecurity to protect all aspects of our clients’ businesses, covering their email and their network.”

The Grove team will be visiting Mauritius from 3 - 7 September with Darktrace and Mimecast expert representatives with the focus on cyber resilience awareness, building relationships, but most important of all, offering industry-leading cyber resilience technologies into the marketplace that can be deployed with ease and confidence along-side credible partners. “Our team of experts are looking forward to engaging with as many Mauritian enterprises to add further value in mitigating cyber crimes and assisting these businesses in getting GDPR compliant, says Chad Bartlett, Director of Strategic Partnerships and Innovation at Grove. “Partnering with Grove and BDO is an excellent start to building a strategic cybersecurity defense plan.”
