LogRhythm appoints regional experts to team in KSA
Omar Barakat is the new partner business manager for KSA at LogRhythm.

Security intelligence company LogRhythm is expanding its presence in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and has appointed three experts to help scale up its footprint in that country.

The new appointments include Omar Barakat as partner business manager for KSA, Yasser Ali as sales manager for KSA and Abdulrahman Aldalbahi as technical systems engineer for KSA.

According to LogRhythm, the three professionals are specialists who wield extensive experience in the region and a thorough understanding of the cyber security needs of businesses operating within Saudi Arabia.

The move by LogRhythm to strengthen its team in Saudi Arabia follows recent reports that have branded the Middle East a magnet for some of the world's most damaging cyber-attacks.

Saudi Arabia, in particular, has been subject to a slew of damaging breaches, and just last month the nation's authorities issued an alert for renewed attacks from the 2012 virus that crippled 35,000 computers at oil giant Saudi Aramco.

"LogRhythm's Threat Lifecycle Management Platform helps organisations rapidly detect, respond to and neutralise threats before they become incidents or major data breaches. As part of our initiative to set up dedicated cyber security support for existing and prospective customers in Saudi Arabia, we're appointing three experienced professionals to manage and boost our presence there," said Mazen Dohaji, regional director, Middle East, Turkey and Africa at LogRhythm.

"Our award-winning Threat Lifecycle Management Platform coupled with a seasoned, dedicated team will give us a competitive edge in Saudi Arabia. We expect this move will allow us to better support our customers in the region and attract more businesses to deploy our unified solution. We look forward to growing our customer base in KSA through our new team members," Dohaji added.
