Safaricom announced its venture into the cybersecurity space

Safaricom which is known for its carrier services and mobile money products, announced this development that will primarily target Kenyan firms that are in need of robust and local cybersecurity solutions.

The launch of Safaricom’s cybersecurity came at the right time as organizations such as Saccos have recently been targeted by cyber criminals, losing billions

The product was made official by Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore who highlighted that it would target customers dealing in financial services and transport. 

“We realize that customers all have unique needs and different budget levels. Our I.T cybersecurity solutions are designed to cater to each customer’s needs so that they can get the best value and strategically select their solutions. We are excited to see that the solution is gathering interest with some of our customers in the financial services and transport industries already signing up for the service,” noted Mr Collymore.
