Winners with Directors of Avian Technologies, Buddhika Liyanage and Ranil Francisco.
Avian Technologies (Pvt.) Ltd., exclusive distributer of Kaspersky Lab Products in Sri Lanka and the Maldives, held the Kaspersky Awards Night 2018 at the Water’s Edge recently. 16 partners and corporates received accolades for their performance in the year 2017 at the colourful event. Present as Chief Guest was Shrenik Bhayani – General Manager Kaspersky Lab South Asia, who was accompanied by Purshottam Bhatia – Online Sales Manager South Asia of Kaspersky Lab along with Directors of Avian Technologies, Buddhika Liyanage and Ranil Francisco.
Speaking to the gathering Shrenik Bhayani called attention to the dynamics of the changing cyber security market and the present and future challenges the industry faces as a whole. “Cyber Security products have started to be commoditized as a result of evolving technology. Simultaneously we face new challenges and threats daily. This has also increased the number of attacks detected. Between 1986 and 2006 we detected 1 million malwares in total. However in 2016 alone we detected 2.2 million malwares,” he stated. The gravity of cyber-attacks has magnified as they have moved from financial fraud to state level cyber-crimes, which are able to disrupt national economy within seconds. “Furthermore, there is a magnifying number of devices that are vulnerable to cyber-attacks. From 4.6 billion devices in 2015, we are looking at an estimated 25 billion devices by 2020. Therefore the opportunity for cyber-crime is expanding, and it is our responsibility as a leader in the industry to continuously detect, respond and protect our customers. Kaspersky is well equipped for this challenge,” he added.
