Cyber Specialists Forge Strategic Partnership to Make Cybersecurity More Affordable for SMEs

by CIOAXIS Bureau

Cyber and technology specialists, Emerge Digital and Red Maple Technologies have forged a strategic partnership to bring enterprise-level cyber security solutions to SMEs at a time when small businesses struggle with the cost and resources of staying secure.

This year’s Government Cyber Security Breaches Survey reported how an increasing number of small to medium-sized companies are struggling with their cyber hygiene since the pandemic.

Malware protection
The number of micro-businesses using up-to-date malware protection has dropped from 81% to 74% in two years, while there are fewer medium-sized firms with security controls on devices compared to 2022.

In a separate report, 38% admitted to having insufficient budget to adequately protect themselves against cyber-attacks.

FractalScan Surface
As a Managed Service Provider (MSP), Emerge Digital will incorporate Red Maple’s attack surface management solution, FractalScan Surface, into its recently launched OnyxSecure product suite, designed to bring enhanced enterprise-level cyber security to small businesses at more affordable prices.

“Red Maple recognises the indispensable role MSPs play in protecting small businesses from the relentless threat of cyber-attacks,” said Rob Stemp, CEO at Red Maple Technologies.

Understanding of cyber risks
Rob Stemp adds, “Our strategy revolves around equipping businesses with a comprehensive understanding of their cyber risks. By partnering with pioneering MSPs, such as Emerge Digital, we aim to extend our reach and provide our state-of-the-art attack surface management platform to a significant number of SMEs.”

Red Maple-MSP alliance
The alliance marks the first time Red Maple’s FractalScan Surface will be available through an MSP with OnyxSecure backed by a dedicated team of highly certified cybersecurity engineers.

Not only is it bringing together two companies that share a keen focus on cyber security but also have a common interest to protect the small business community.

Cybersecurity optimisation
Tom Henson, Emerge Digital’s Managing Director, said “Our shared values and vision make this collaboration with Red Maple Technologies a natural choice. It’s a testament to the innovative spirit we share in supporting the small business community.”

“Security shouldn’t be a privilege confined to big corporations,” continued Tom Henson, adding “This partnership allows us to bring top-tier security to all businesses, irrespective of their size. We look forward to helping our clients optimise their cyber security posture through the integration of FractalScan Surface.”

Identify and manage risks
Utilising FractalScan Surface’s continuous scanning capabilities, Emerge Digital can identify and proactively manage potential risks, significantly reducing clients’ vulnerability to cyber-attacks.

This partnership is built for mutual growth, with feedback from Emerge Digital’s engineers directly influencing FractalScan’s future development.
