Scybers to market and sell Mastercard’s RiskRecon and enable organizations to pre-empt and mitigate cyber threats
22 June 2022, Colombo: Mastercard, today announced a strategic partnership with Scybers, a global cybersecurity consulting and managed services company to bring Mastercard’s RiskRecon to Scybers’ customers. RiskRecon is a Mastercard cybersecurity product that enables organizations to assess and manage cybersecurity threats and risks across supply chains and third-party vendors.
RiskRecon comes with a self-scan tool that is able to monitor the cybersecurity performance of organizations using open-source intelligence by employing passive, non-invasive techniques to discover an organization’s public systems and analyze the cybersecurity risk posture of those systems.
As part of this partnership, Scybers will introduce RiskRecon to its existing and potential new clients across any industry that has a digital presence and help them identify vulnerabilities before they can be exploited.
Speaking on the partnership, Sandun Hapugoda, Country Manager, Sri Lanka and Maldives, Mastercard said, “In an ever-evolving digital world, cybercrime has become a pertinent threat to businesses. Large-scale data breaches and ransomware attacks place organizations and businesses at risk each year. This partnership with Scybers is in line with Mastercard’s commitment to build a safe and secure cyberspace for businesses and individuals. We’re excited to bring real-time, continuous insights for Scybers' customers that will help in identifying, pre-solving issues and protect their businesses.”
Commenting on the partnership, Madu Ratnayake, Co-Founder and Chairman of Scybers' added, “Scybers is pleased to take RiskRecon to organizations who are looking for an additional layer of protection to keep their businesses safe from the ever-increasing cybersecurity attacks that amounts to high negative impact on reputation, penalties and remediation costs. Scybers will also educate the market with Mastercard via workshops and webinars to help prevent cyber threats using RiskRecon. This is the beginning of a mutually beneficial partnership for all of our stakeholders.”
