London —June 28, 2016 — RiskIQ, the leader in External Threat Management, today announced that it has selected DataComm360 to be their distributor in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) market.
DataComm360 enables system integrators and service providers to offer cloud-based Cyber Security Managed Services to SMEs, large enterprises, telecom operators and governments in the MENA region. DataComm360 and its reseller network are focused on introducing new and innovative technologies to their clients to help them address the challenges posed by ever changing cyber threats. RiskIQ’s solution offerings complement the current DataComm360 portfolio by helping clients extend their security program outside the firewall.
The Middle East experienced the fastest growth in internet users of all regions in 2015 and Enterprises in the MENA region continue to invest in digital channels to engage with this expanding audience. As a result they are constantly growing their digital footprint; be it on the web, through the development of mobile applications or through social media. This has significantly increased their digital attack surface and therefore their exposure to cyber threats. In addition to defending their own digital assets, they also have to deal with the growing problem of cyber impersonation, whether it be domain infringement, web and mobile phishing or executive and brand impersonation on social media. RiskIQ Digital Footprint and External Threats solutions help organisations tackle both problems.
“Demand for Cyber Security services is clearly on the rise in this part of the world,” said Naji Chakhtoura, COO at DataComm360 Inc. “While there are a lot of competing technologies in the market, RiskIQ plays in a blue ocean on its own, addressing the challenges of Cyber Security in the growing digital world. We are excited about our partnership with RiskIQ and the value we are bringing to our reseller network and through them, to customers in the MENA region.”
“There has never been a more pressing time for organisations to focus on External Threats, as much as they do on perimeter security,” said Trevor Crompton, RiskIQ’s EMEA Channel Director. “Bringing visibility and management to the external attack surface is core to RiskIQ’s solution and we are delighted to be able to extend this to organisations across the Middle East and North Africa, working with Datacomm360. I am very pleased to able to harness Datacomm360’s seasoned expertise and knowledge of this diverse market – and excited about what we can achieve together.”
