In an ever changing and highly digitalized marketspace, the need to have digital assets protected becomes more imperative. Countries and organizations have lost billions of dollars in cyber breaches lately, Nigeria inclusive.

Over $270.22 million was spent in 2018 to prevent cyberattacks by organizations and government in 2018. This has prompted Tanta Innovation Limited by introducing cost effective penetration testing for organizations. Speaking on the importance of penetration testing for organizations, Abraham Tanta, the Chief Executive Officer of Tanta Innovative Limited said, “We strongly believe at Tanta Innovative that penetration testing for organizations in Nigeria should be a thing that corporates do on a periodic basis. It offers the organization insights on the areas of vulnerabilities and how they can protect themselves better against cyber breaches. We have made this pen testing a simple process and cost effective. “

“The importance of penetration and vulnerability testing is critical to us. We follow the laid down processes of penetration testing such as Planning and data gathering, Scanning, gaining access, maintaining access and more importantly Covering tracks. We also look at various methods which we might deploy such as External testing, Internal testing, Blind testing and Targeted testing. We apply a high level of skill to properly identify all of the exploitable vulnerabilities.”. Tanta added.

As the country has embraced digital payment, the need for periodic testing for organizations with online presence especially those with digital payment portals and gateway becomes increasingly inevitable. having partnered with reputable international firms, Tanta Innovative plans to bring the best global practices to Nigeria.

The company reiterated the need for Nigerians (Corporates and privates) to start looking inward for their software needs. Known to have developed robust software solutions for firms, Tanta Innovative Limited has promised Nigerians a bouquet of IT solutions to meet their specific needs. Solutions such as eHealth software, School Management Software and also ERPs that are bespoke. With a robust after sales in place, the company said that patronizing locally developed software would encourage the IT ecosystem and save the much-needed foreign exchange for other developmental projects.

“We are creating solutions that can change how people work and make life easier. With a lot of collaboration in place, we have a mission to bring to the fore indigenous robust solutions that would make people forget about all these foreign products and focus on locally made ones because we are trying to solve their problems better than the other ones they buy over the counter”, Abraham Tanta concluded.
