Safaricom, Kenya’s giant telecom has been recognized by American cybersecurity corporation Fortinet as the Best Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP).

Safaricom emerged at the top in the category by achieving the fastest and most evaluation, deployment, and operation of the technology among small, medium, and large enterprises in the market.

Safaricom CEO Peter Ndegwa said, “We are very honored to win this award as it is a true reflection of our comprehensive understanding of the unique security needs that businesses of different sizes have especially with the recent push to digitize operations. This accolade acknowledges that we have made significant investments into reducing the complexity of safeguarding enterprises against cybersecurity attacks. We have done this in order to empower businesses and allow them to leverage the power of technology to take their businesses forward.”

He added, “New ways of working are emerging as businesses make the shift to remote work and we are cognizant that this has created unprecedented opportunities for cyber attackers. This award is a great motivation for us as we remain committed to providing multi-faceted security functions together with our partners to defend our enterprise customers against such attacks and meet their diverse needs.”

This development comes at the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic that forced many to work from home that brought a surge inflow of information that unlocked many avenues for cybercriminals.

Moreover, security breaches are becoming more sophisticated day by day, and intruders have acquired advanced skills and developed radical evasion techniques to enter enterprise networks unnoticed, playing on the knowledge and access gaps that still exist among businesses seeking to tackle such issues.

Since 2019, Safaricom has been building capacity to broaden its IT security solutions since it launched a wide range of cybersecurity solutions for its enterprise customers.

Fortinet, the American start-up enables partners to deliver broad and integrated high-performance network security and networking services and ranks as the first in the most security appliances shipped worldwide.
