Evolving Network Infrastructure In Africa Is Secured By Genians Network Access Control Solutions

San Jose, California. – August 30th, 2021 – Genians, the industry pioneer in Zero Trust Network Access Control (NAC) solutions, announced today plans to extend its NAC market leadership into Africa by working with CyberDist Africa.

Since 2005, Genians’ footprint and reputation have grown both horizontally and vertically as we have acquired an increasing number of Fortune 500 customers who have regional offices and factories, as well as among small-to-medium sized Enterprises (SME) across the APAC, EMEA, NA, and LATAM regions. A major reason for the attractiveness of the Genians solution is that it remains the only NAC vendor that can provide flexible deployment options, covering both on-prem and Cloud environments seamlessly without disturbing existing IT operations for their heterogeneous network environments. Genians also provides a one-stop online services model for NAC from initial free trial through production deployment to full lifecycle support.

The “Digital Economy Initiative for Africa” (DE4A) aims to ensure that every individual, business, and government in Africa will be digitally enabled by 2030. Yet Internet access remains out of reach for most people in the continent, with only 22% reporting having access in 2017, according to the World Bank report.

“Now, in 2021, since the DE4A initiative began, the role of cybersecurity is becoming increasingly critical in Africa and the demand for NAC has been increased accordingly. However, we found we could not support our customers with traditional NAC approaches due to rigid deployment options, high pricing, and a painful maintenance process. Most importantly, most typical NAC solutions could not support evolving NAC environments. We then found Genian NAC via Google search and acquired it instantly over genians.com without any hassle. We are so glad to be a business partner now with Genians,” said Muchiri John, Technical Director of Cyberdist

“Genians has been helping many organizations around the world”, said Kyeyeon Kim, Genians’ Co-founder and CTO. “Team Genians looks forward to working with Cyberdist to share our proven technology and experience for any organization struggling with cybersecurity challenges in Africa.”

Starting with the Kenya School of Law, CyberDist Africa has acquired new customers by working through its partners. With Genian NAC, IT administrators can gain centralized management to any IP-enabled endpoints such as known, unknown, transient, remote, rogue, and misconfigured devices across multiple locations to get comprehensive network visibility, streamline configuration, and sustain a high level of endpoint compliance.
