May 2022 by Patrick LEBRETON
The collaboration will see the distributor raise awareness for regional businesses to validate their cyber resiliency in increasingly digitized and distributed work environments
Evanssion, a value-added distributor (VAD) specialized in Cloud Native and Cybersecurity across the Middle East and Africa, has announced its distribution partnership with CYBER RANGES by Silensec, a next-generation military-grade full-content-lifecycle cyber range for the development of cyber capabilities and the assessment of competencies and organizational cyber resilience. As per the terms of the partnership, Evanssion will deliver the full extent of CYBER RANGES’ portfolio of world-class cybersecurity training and capability development exercises to enterprises in the Middle East region.
Human behaviour continues to be the biggest cause for security breaches, amounting for up to 95% of them. The evolving business models and changing market circumstances are also further expanding the attack surface leaving security teams stretched thin. Regional businesses must evaluate their preparedness should an attack happen and assess if their resources are capable to handle those incidents efficiently. Gartner predicts that by 2022, 15% of larger enterprises will be using a cyber range to develop the skills of their security teams, up from less than 1% currently. CYBER RANGES can help regional organizations prepare and withstand cyber-attacks by creating exercises with real-life attack scenarios in an isolated secure environment.
Evanssion together with its extensive partner network will create awareness and large-scale cyber drills for organizations in the region to test their cyber resiliency through CYBER RANGES offerings. The distributor will also hold training sessions for its partners to help them get well versed with CYBER RANGES solutions to be better equipped to position it to regional customers.
