VirtualArmour International Inc. (CSE:VAI) (OTC:VTLR) is gearing up to launch a new version of their proprietary CloudCastr client portal and prevention platform, and company CTO Andrew Douthwaite explains how regulation is healthy for promoting good security.
"The more regulation the better, so we can keep this drive toward good security going forward," he said.
Douthwaite, who joined VirtualArmour in 2007 as a senior engineer, focuses on leading growth in the managed security services business and ensuring VirtualArmour is a thought leader in the cybersecurity industry. He said that countries with less regulation were more vulnerable to security breaches.
"A lot of countries are unregulated and they can be targets for attacks," he said. "They can also produce more bad actors because they can fly under the radar from those unregulated regions."
Citing American and European regulatory frameworks, Douthwaite makes the case that the experiences of unregulated countries act to spur regulation leading to more robust protections.
"That is giving a rise to a drive towards regulation, as we've seen in the U.S. and the EU with GDPR [General Data Protection Regulation], which is driving better security practice and better standards across the board," he said.
As VirtualArmour serves clients across the globe, Douthwaite sees a pervasive problem as being the need of talent supply in the industry to serve the ever-growing demand.
"I think one of the main things is that there's a lack of talented resources to have the ability to deliver a good security practice 24/7," he said. "Obviously we can source good people to work in these environment, however, it is difficult to have that standardized across the globe and 24/7."
One way VirtualArmour has been able to keep clients in the loop with regard to security risks and data, is their Cloudcastr client portal, a proprietary monitoring and visualization platform."...an overview of current threats that are happening, all of the services that we're offering to that customer, access to our managed service engineers and has other functionalities such as secure file share".
Douthwaite said that the platform is being updated all the time, and that clients can anticipate a 2.0 which will boast even more capabilities.
"Cloudcastr has been continually developed from there, adding new features all the time," he said. "And we're going for a new big launch, which is being developed...of Cloudcastr 2.0. It will include a lot of new features, such as reporting, invoicing and some more predictability pieces around the security environment."
