November 18, 2016 GamaSec, an Israeli Cybersecurity Company, just signed an agreement with Quebec Mirades Inc to protect websites against cyberattacks.
While participating in the 4th international Conference - Israel HSL & Cyber 2016, in presence of the Canada Trade mission and the Mayors of the City of Montreal, Mr. Denis Coderre and of the City of Toronto, Mr. John Tory, Mirades Inc. signed a distribution agreement with the Israeli company GamaSec. Mirades is committed to the promotion of Cybersecurity solutions: Gamashield and GamaCyber on the Quebec and Canadian territory. An Offer that combines Cybersecurity with a cyber-insurance for the protection of websites and an insurance coverage for data protection.
Websites today are the showcases of societies; from doing business (online sales), to presenting information, as well as the reflecting the image and reputation of companies. If your Website is hacked, not only can you see direct loss of sales, loss of sensitive data, but also the image and good name of your company may be damaged. Protecting one’s know-how, data banks and reputation is essential for any type of business.
Mirades Inc. is considering the development of a product specific to insurance the market, to be offered to small and medium-sized Canadian companies. Thanks to its main partner in the field of insurance in Montreal, BFL Canada, this expert group will be among the first to combine advanced protection in Cybersecurity on the one hand and insurance in case of attack and loss of information on the other. At the time of this announcement in Tel Aviv, Mivil Deschênes, president of Mirades, said he was ‘extremely proud that we can offer businesses a security solution that will protect against cyber-attacks and thus contribute to their resilience’.
Application vulnerabilities are the Achilles heel in the protection of the Web sites, nowadays. It is best for one to know his flaws in order to fix them, rather than waiting for such attacks to occur and responding only after. ‘We are very proud to cooperate with a Quebec Company for the distribution of our Cybersecurity solutions, to enhance endurance and protection of Canadian companies in case they would undergo cyberattacks’ said Avi Bartov, CEO of Gamasec.
Both GamaSec and Mirades recognize the potential of providing an all-in-one Cybersecurity solution for small businesses offering greater flexibility and tranquility to the customer. Since the real impacts resulting from a cyberattack as well as the true nature of this risk are still little known, the team formed of Mirades, Gamasec and BFL Canada, intend to turn to academia to advance our knowledge in this area. It is from this angle that the issue will be presented to actuarial students from 5 universities in Quebec and Ontario as part of Actulab, an academic competition. The results of these studies will surely help us to better understand and measure the risk of Cybersecurity and thus develop practical solutions for Canadian companies.
