Deutsche Telekom’s enterprise arm is adding Norton cyber security tech to its small and medium business portfolio.

The Germany-based operator said Norton Small Business, which is available for €4.95 per month, protects up to 20 users and 60 devices.

Services offered include malware protection, a smart firewall, browser protection and a phishing blocker.

The offering is available via the cloud and is initially being marketed in German-speaking areas of Europe.

According to the latest edition of Deutsche Telekom's Cyber Security Report, German companies saw an increase in the frequency of cyber-attacks during 2015.

Over one-third of companies surveyed reported having experienced cyber-attacks at least once per week, up from 32 percent 12 months ago.

Eighteen percent reported having experienced daily attacks, up from 14 percent.

However, many attacks were going undetected by organisations and took an average of 220 days before coming to light.

The report also noted that German businesses are ignoring the risks of cyber attacks because they are reluctant to educate themselves on IT security.

Patrick Molck-Ude, Managing Director of T-Systems’ Telecommunications division, told European Communications last month that there is a long way to go before the number of cyber attacks might peak.

Another report from risk consulting firm Kroll last month concluded that a company’s own employees remain the biggest security risk.
