CyberRx Expands to Northern Plains

Sioux Falls-based Broadband and Security Company is Newest Reseller

February 15, 2017 (Silver Spring, MD) – CyberRx announces that SDN Communications, a regional broadband service provider, is the newest reseller of CyberRx’s cybersecurity risk intelligence tool. CyberRx allows key decision-makers to quickly assess their organization’s level of cybersecurity readiness against the 98 best practices outlined in the Cybersecurity Framework the current gold standard in cybersecurity readiness developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the private sector.


Headquartered in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, SDN Communications is a premier business-to-business broadband service provider. The company also provides managed cybersecurity services, including remote network monitoring, managed firewall and routers, and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection. SDN is a cybersecurity leader and works with the region’s largest industries to keep their business data safe. SDN will now be offering the CyberRx cybersecurity risk intelligence tool to its customers and partners in South Dakota and across the country.


“SDN is a great partner for expanding the CyberRx community of businesses since the company already focuses on cybersecurity services,” said CyberRx Co-Founder and CEO Ola Sage. “Now with CyberRx, SDN is able to further help its customers become cyber ready.


“Unlike cybersecurity tools that primarily focus on an organization’s IT infrastructure, CyberRx automates the Cybersecurity Framework to measure an organization’s cyber capabilities in five key functional areas: identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover,” Ms. Sage explained. “CyberRx provides companies with a new level of actionable intelligence that helps CEOs and CIOs prioritize and improve their cybersecurity readiness. This is important because U.S. companies are not cyber-ready.”


“The NIST Cybersecurity Framework provides useful guidance that helps companies understand their security risks and take action to improve their security posture,” said Mark Shlanta, CEO of SDN Communications. “CyberRx has helped SDN leverage the best practices contained in the Cyber Security Framework. After seeing firsthand the benefit of this tool, I’m pleased to begin offering CyberRx to SDN’s customers and business partners.”
