Strategic collaboration to keep businesses at their best, mitigating the risks of ransomware attacks and data breaches with ViBiCloud X-TIS (External Threat Intelligence Service) solutions.
Jakarta, Indonesia – [22 Nov 2023]
Indonesian businesses are facing an unprecedented surge in cyber threats and ransomware attacks. The stakes have never been higher, and in response to this growing digital peril, ViBiCloud, a leading Managed Service Provider in Indonesia, has partnered with CYFIRMA, a leading cybersecurity firm, and NEXTGEN Indonesia, which has joined as the official distributor, providing value in helping build a stronger ecosystem, essential for success in this dynamic cyber defense landscape.
Rising Cyber Threats in Indonesia
The National Cyber and Crypto Agency (BSSN) reported 1.6 billion cyberattacks were recorded in Indonesia in 2021. Recent data show a concerning upward trend in cyber threats targeting Indonesian businesses. Threat actors and hackers are actively exploiting vulnerabilities, putting organizations at risk. Ransomware attacks, in particular, have witnessed a significant increase in frequency and sophistication, accounting for 50% of all attacks.
A Unified Approach to Cybersecurity
With this strategic partnership, Indonesian businesses will gain access to a holistic cybersecurity solution powered by the latest AI-driven technology and managed by a team of cybersecurity experts. ViBiCloud will offer an array of managed cybersecurity services, including 24/7 threat monitoring, incident response, vulnerability assessments, and more, ensuring businesses are shielded against cyber threats including ransomware attacks.
CYFIRMA’s cutting-edge DeTCT digital risk monitoring and protection platform will be seamlessly integrated with ViBiCloud managed services, creating a formidable defense against cyber adversaries. This synergy will empower businesses to first gain visibility of their weak spots seen through the lens of a hacker and then proactively identify, assess, and mitigate potential digital risks to secure their critical assets and sensitive data.
The ViBiCloud X-TIS: A Lifeline for Indonesian Businesses
In addition to this comprehensive cybersecurity offering, the partnership will launch a ViBiCloud X-TIS, where any Indonesian business seeking a cybersecurity health check can access expert guidance. This free initiative aims to bolster the overall cybersecurity posture of organizations, regardless of their size or industry.
Alfonsus Bram, CEO of ViBiCloud, added, “Our dedication is firmly rooted in Indonesia, motivating us to extend our support to helping business in Indonesia to securing their business. I firmly believe that the partnership between ViBiCloud, CYFIRMA and NEXTGEN Indonesia is one of the best strategic that bring services to our customers.

Kumar Ritesh, Founder and CEO of CYFIRMA, expressed his excitement about the partnership, stating, “Our mission is to safeguard businesses against evolving cyber threats and the DeTCT platform changes the game for cyber-defenders as it casts the light on potential attack surfaces, vulnerabilities, exposed data and assets which are at risk of being exploited and exfiltrated by hacking groups. DeTCT is the AI defender that works tirelessly to give visibility on threats so businesses can take actions before a cyber risk escalates. By partnering with ViBiCloud, we can scale our offering and we are making it possible for Indonesian organizations to stay ahead of threat actors, ensuring their continued growth and success.”
Sanny Hadinata, Managing Director of NEXTGEN Indonesia, emphasized the importance of a united front in cybersecurity, saying, “Cyber defense is a team sport.
