Tech Tuesday: Top Cybersecurity tools for SMEs in 2024 (Part 2)


Running a successful SME requires juggling many hats. But one area that can’t be overlooked is cybersecurity. 

Data breaches and cyberattacks are on the rise, and even small businesses are attractive targets.  The good news is, there are practical and affordable cybersecurity solutions available for SMEs. These solutions can help protect your business from financial losses, operational disruptions, and reputational damage, allowing you to focus on what you do best – running your business.

This week on Tech Tuesday, we dive into the world of cybersecurity solutions for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)


A pioneer in delivering modern, hardware-based passkey authentication security at scale to customers in over 160 countries, Yubico has been a leader in setting global standards for secure access to computers, mobile devices and internet accounts since 2007.

Yubico’s invention, the YubiKey, is the gold standard for phishing-resistant multi-factor authentication, stopping account takeovers and making secure login easy and available for everyone. 

YubiKeys have been developed to suit multiple enterprise needs and personal use but ultimately, they enable passwordless logins using the most secure form of passkey technology. Suited to any industry where data needs to be protected, YubiKeys can be used with Windows and Mac logins, Gmail, Dropbox, Facebook, Salesforce, Duo, Google accounts, password managers and many more

Owning a YubiKey means no more re-typing passcodes; just plug in your YubiKey, tap it, and it does the rest for you. To find out more about how YubiKeys work, visit

Trend Micro/Trend Vision One

Trend Vision One is a cloud-native security operations platform, servicing cloud, hybrid and on-premises environments. This innovative platform combines Attack Surface Management (ASM) and extended detection response (XDR) in a single console to effectively manage risk, minimise performance impact and enhance ease of use across the organisation.

Delivering the broadest native XDR sensor coverage in the cybersecurity market, Trend Vision One provides extensive protection, detection, investigation, and response capabilities across physical endpoints, email collaboration, servers, virtual machines, and cloud workloads. This integration enables security teams to centralise visibility and security operations while managing licenses and policies from a single platform, significantly reducing security gaps and management overheads. 

Armis/ Armis Centrix

Armis CentrixTM, the Armis cyber exposure management platform, is powered by the Armis AI-driven Asset Intelligence Engine, which sees, secures, protects, and manages billions of assets around the world in real time.

In today’s highly dynamic cyber risk environment, organisations need to protect their critical assets and build resilience.

Armis CentrixTM is a seamless, frictionless, cloud-based platform that proactively mitigates all cyber asset risks, remediates vulnerabilities, blocks threats and protects the entire attack surface. The comprehensive platform encompasses every facet of cyber threat exposure management, including asset discovery and management, early warning threat detection, vulnerability discovery, prioritisation and remediation.

Palo Alto Networks

Palo Alto Networks is at the forefront of cybersecurity innovation, offering several solutions designed to safeguard digital landscapes. Among its suite of offerings, its AI-powered products stand out for their advanced capabilities in threat detection and response, particularly as AI-generated attacks increase.

Leveraging Precision AI™, Palo Alto Network’s proprietary innovation combining machine learning, deep learning, and generative AI, the company delivers real-time, AI-powered securitythat outpaces adversaries and proactively protects networks and infrastructure. Precision AI is infused across its platforms – Strata™, Prisma®, and Cortex® – and addresses key enterprise use cases such as countering AI with AI, securing AI by design, and simplifying security with AI.

Zoom/Post-quantum end-to-end encryption

As the security threat landscape evolves, Zoom continuously adapts with the goal of keeping its users protected. Zoom recently bolstered its security offering with the inclusion of post-quantum end-to-end encryption (E2EE) now available for Zoom Workplace. This makes Zoom the first UCaaS provider to offer a post-quantum E2EE solution for video conferencing. 

When users enable E2EE for their meetings, Zoom’s system is designed to provide the participants with access to the encryption keys that are used to encrypt the meeting; this is the behaviour for both post-quantum E2EE and standard E2EE. Because Zoom’s servers do not have the necessary decryption key, encrypted data relayed through Zoom’s servers is indecipherable. 

ExtraHop RevealX

RevealX is the network detection and response (NDR) platform from ExtraHop enterprises trust to reveal cyber risk and build business resilience. The only NDR platform that delivers 360-degree visibility across complex cloud and hybrid environments, RevealX detects sophisticated cybersecurity threats with speed and fidelity.RevealX picks up where all other cybersecurity controls stop, offering greater visibility into the attack surface by filling coverage gaps left by EDR, SIEM, and logs. The NDR platform ingests, monitors, and analyses network data in the east-west, north-south corridors to seek attackers out and stop them – leaving them nowhere to hide.

RevealX spots ransomware signals and attacker behaviours that other tools miss, automatically discovering, classifying, and inventorying all assets connecting to an organisation’s network. These capabilities enable security teams to quickly pinpoint vulnerable devices and vulnerabilities being exploited, so they can identify risk faster, investigate smarter, and respond to threats with confidence.

Thales / Passwordless 360°

Launched in June 2024, Thales‘ Passwordless 360° is a complete passwordless functionality that offers a new way for security leaders to approach the implementation of passwordless authentication. 

It allows organisations to use one single solution provider to meet all their authentication needs across their customer, workforce, partner, and supplier ecosystems. It has the flexibility to let companies use the latest technologies like FIDO passkeys, while also making the most of previous investments they might have made in passwordless technologies. 

Organisations in highly regulated industries in both the public and private sectors that require strong authentication options should also consider theOneWelcome Identity Platform.
