Strategic Partnerships with Leading Cyber Security and Cyber Risk Management Companies Expands GigNet’s Managed Services Offerings

CANCUN, Mexico, May 17, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GigNet, a Digital Infrastructure company with an extensive regional fiber-optic broadband network from Costa Mujeres, North of Cancun, through the Hotel Zone of Tulum, announced today a number of new products and services to help protect hospitality and enterprise clients from the financial losses caused by cybercrime, ransomware, and other malicious attacks. Since the average cost of cyber-attacks on businesses can be in the millions of US$ dollars, GigNet’s new cyber security products are important new tools for prevention, planning and early detection for cyber risks.

GigNet made the announcements of the official launch of the cyber security products at a press conference at the GigNet Mexico headquarters and at the Wi-Fi World Congress Americas being held in Cancun (https://wifinowglobal.com/cancun-2022). GigNet Mexico’s President Mark Carney, OBE, is a featured speaker at the WiFi World Congress Americas, as is Richard Clarke, Senior Advisor to GigNet. Mr. Clarke is one of the world’s most recognized experts on cyber security, having served as the first U.S. "Cyber Czar." Mr. Clarke is Chairman of Good Harbor Security Risk Management in Washington D.C.

GigNet and Good Harbor announced the launch of GigNet Cyber Crisis Management Services powered by Good Harbor. These services will help clients prepare for cyber and other security risk crisis situations and will provide planning and tools that can help companies recover quickly if an attack occurs. Mr. Clarke stated, "We help companies prepare for and practice crisis management, because companies that do so perform better when a real crisis happens. While cyber security incidents may be inevitable, the resulting damage is not."

GigNet also announced a strategic partnership with ReliaQuest, headquartered in Tampa, Florida, to launch GigNet Managed Cyber Security powered by ReliaQuest, a set of tools that will help clients more quickly detect and isolate potential cyber security attacks and breaches, both external and internal, with real time monitoring. ReliaQuest is a United States technology company that is working with major clients around the world through five global locations. "With GigNet Managed Cyber Security powered by ReliaQuest, you get the power of our GreyMatter platform and it’s artificial intelligence and our global security operations centers," said Jason Pfeiffer, Chief Strategy Officer for ReliaQuest.

Mark Carney, OBE, and President of GigNet Mexico, said "We are very excited to be working with partners that have proven themselves in this critical area of cyber security and cyber risk. Cyber-attacks and ransomware are growing problems and more and more malicious every year. Our secure, advanced fiber optic network already helps us protect clients’ data and operations, and these new cyber security products further our commitment to be a trusted, long-term technology partner. We also believe our investment in the region in fiber-optic technology and our secure GigNet Service Delivery Platform help strengthen Quintana Roo as a world class tourist destination and business environment."
