Cybersense has become CloudBacko’s Gold Reseller in South Africa


Cybersense, an IT servicing company from South Africa, has just become CloudBacko’s Gold Reseller. It is an IT Systems Consultancy with a deep technical understanding and a Mantra of ‘no problem is too big to solve’. Their rather unique and competitive IT servicing model is to operate on predetermined objectives that saves clients time and money by pre-warning of potential IT Infrastructure failures.

Cybersense’ CTO, Seyton Hayes, was previously Head of IT Security at a large bank. His security skills and penetration testing expertise has saved clients vast amounts of time and money by securing their organizations from people like him but with nasty intentions. He likes to call himself an Ethical Hacker. His concept of “pre-warned is pre-armed” has culminated in Cybersense’ CyberMon Systems monitoring application which runs at all our client sites and warns us of potential problems which we can then pre-empt. Seyton’s expertise is so well respected in the IT Industry that competitors contract his expertise at times. A real nerd, he works and plays with technology.

It’s our great honor for being chosen by Cybersense as a backup solution partner, as being chosen by a techie nerd proved that our backup solution is robust enough to withstand any challenge :-)
