Their merged solutions will strengthen Aushield Defend, Australia’s national threat investigation and sharing platform, which protects organisations against the latest cyber threats.
“The entire APAC region is inundated with cyber attacks. Businesses are keenly aware of how damaging threats like Olympic Destroyer can be and know that Advanced
Persistent Threats, backed by hostile nations such as North Korea, are always looking for ways to penetrate networks,”said Stree Naidu, Anomali’s Senior Vice President & General Manager for Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ).
“I’m excited to be aligning with a company known and trusted for defendingAustralian networks against the most sophisticated cyber attacks.”
Canberra-based Cybermerc is committed to lifting the cyber capability of all Australian organisations. The company’s mission is to build a collective cyber defence by connecting Australian government, industry and academia.
Aushield Defend provides an enhanced intelligence feed of analysed data from a wide range of sources, including Cybermerc’s own sovereign security technologies.

Cybermerc’s Director of Aushield, AndrewSlater, says: “Australian organisations have been defending themselves in isolation.Cyber security is not a ‘me’ and ‘you’ problem – it is an ‘us’ problem and we can be far more effective together…we can be secure together.”
