In an increasingly technology driven and futuristic world, there is a growing need for businesses to invest in seamless and secure IT services. Dialog Axiata PLC, the country’s premier connectivity provider, is a leader in the provision of world class Enterprise Solutions. Having identified the significance of secure IT services, Dialog collaborated with top IT services company, Eureka Technology Partners (Eureka), to help its corporate customers achieve their security goals.

The partnership was initiated in an effort to add value to Dialog’s corporate customer base and provide customers with access to thorough information security and IT audits including other crucial tools that can strengthen and improve IT networks. Jeremy Huxtable, Group Chief Officer, Dialog Enterprise, Dialog Axiata PLC said “Most Sri Lankan companies in diverse sectors ranging from Finance to Manufacturing have been targets of cyber-attacks, resulting in financial losses. As a result, we felt that we need to proactively improve our customer’s readiness to both withstand and respond to these attacks. The starting point of such an initiative for any organization is an information security and IT audit. Following the audit, Dialog can supply and manage solutions to provide the levels of security required”.

By offering the following value-added services, Dialog hopes to support its customers reduce down-time, recognize vulnerable mission critical assets and its impact on cyber-attacks and provide direction to restore information, if a disruption occurs.
