As a key regional distributor, Boch Systems will help expand Ridge Security’s global presence, delivering cutting-edge, ethical, AI-driven pen-test solutions to the West African region.

Santa Clara, CA – Ridge Security, cutting-edge pen-testing solution provider announces a distribution agreement with Boch Systems, a leading, premium provider of business technology and integration services, to deliver AI-driven, pen-testing services for joint clients in the banking and government sectors, where regulations and laws are stringent and clients require higher levels of security and compliance. Boch Systems will help expand Ridge Security’s reach in the Western African Region. 

With COVID19 a dire reality over the last year, governments and employers have focused primarily on the health and safety of individuals and society at large. However, cyber criminals are capitalizing on this crisis and the expanded attack surface created by the shift to working and studying from home. Ridge Security is addressing this growing need for cyber resiliency, in the absence of a growing budget or workforce, by expanding its partner and distribution ecosystem in order to make automated pen-testing available to a larger market in dire need of cyber security.

As a strategic partner, Boch Systems is in a unique position to deliver solutions and services to its government and financial clients across West Africa, having established a trusted presence and credentials in the region for over a decade.

RidgeBot™’s pen-testing system couples ethical hacking techniques, with AI-driven, decision-making algorithms, to not only isolate and exploit vulnerable targets, but to also prioritize business risks within the organization.

RidgeBot™ differentiates itself from other scanning or pen-testing approaches with:

  • A fully automated and continuous security testing platform, unlike other periodic and human-based penetration testing.
  • An iterative processing approach, uncovering deeper risks.
  • Zero false-positive reports, streamlining the workload of security teams by helping them focus on verified exploits.

“We are thrilled to continue partnering with trusted solution providers and make automated pen-testing available across organizations, small and large, and across all verticals,” said Ning Mo, CEO of Ridge Security. “RidgeBot™ makes cyber security a reality for many organizations who don’t have the budget or resources to ensure the security of their critical assets, especially those in heavily regulated sectors.”  

“With the digital world evolving rapidly and the growing need for cyber resilience, ethical AI-driven capabilities are core to preempting hackers’ activities. We are excited to distribute Ridge Security solutions, and to effectively be ahead of the game in providing IT solutions to address cybersecurity challenges in the West African region,” said Chima Uzomba, MD and CEO at Boch Systems.
