"Backed by eSentire's best-in-class technology solutions, skilled security analysts, threat intelligence team, and global network of sensors, we can now offer mid-sized enterprises in the Middle East the most advanced cybersecurity-as-a-service available, ultimately helping them stay one step ahead of the attackers."
