The local branch of the US-based Intel Security Group last week showcased its latest strategy of unifying the entire Threat Defense Lifecycle (TDL) for security to become the number one security vendor for their customers in the region.

Addressing the Sri Lanka Executive Forum, experts showcased how automating certain aspects of the TDL would enable organisations to effectively block threats, identify compromises, and expedite remediation of cyber threats. TDL is characterised by the adoption of the Protect, Detect and Attack stance which addresses the rising volume of complex cyber threats that plague organisations.

“This strategy will enable customers in Sri Lanka to more aggressively as well as effectively defend themselves against data breaches and targeted attacks”, the global computer security firm suggested.

The event was held under the overarching theme of ‘New. Next. Security in Focus’ and offered insights on evolving trends in cyber security to make security a priority boardroom discussion.

Speaking about the forum, Managing Director, India & SAARC, Intel Security Jagdish Mahapatra said, “The adoption of technologies and digital solutions not only opens new avenues for business but also introduces organisations to rapidly evolving cyber threats. Given its burgeoning economy, the Sri Lankan market for cyber security solutions and products is expected to rise exponentially, and organisations are now gearing up to invest considerably in security solutions to enhance their risk posture. With our latest strategy, we aim to become the number one security partner for customers and we are happy work with South Asian Technologies Limited in doing so”.

The forum saw attendance from CTOs, CIOs and key decision-makers in organisations, who were keen to understand the role that Intel Security could play as a leading security vendor in mitigating cyber risks for their organisations spread across Sri Lanka.
