Cybereason launches Middle East operations
Hires cybersecurity industry veteran Tarek Kuzbari as regional director for Middle East & Turkey
Cybereason, creators of the Cyber Defense Platform, has launched operations in the Middle East to help enterprises future proof their networks from the ever-evolving threat landscape. The company provides complete visibility and actionable threat detection so security analysts can stop attacks before material damage happens. Cybereason’s Dubai-based operations will be overseen by Tarek Kuzbari, an industry sales veteran with experience at some of the world’s leading security companies.
“The digital transformation era is expanding the attack surface and the potential damage for companies is higher than ever. Our future proof technology protects the world’s largest brands from evolving threats. Together with our local partners, we will deliver the best cyber defence platform into the Middle East market, which will help defenders find and eliminate sophisticated breaches faster than any other platform in the world,” said Lior Div, CEO and Co-Founder, Cybereason.
By automating many tasks that previously relied upon manual labor, Cybereason’s cloud-based EPP platform delivers an industry-leading ratio of one analyst to 150,000 endpoints, compared with the industry benchmark of one analyst to 20,000 endpoints.
Tarek Kuzbari previously held sales leadership positions at Kaspersky Lab, Group-IB, SABA Software and Bitdefender. In the months ahead, he will concentrate on partner recruitment and enablement, as well as increasing brand recognition across the region.
“I’m looking forward to extending Cybereason’s reach to new enterprises and organisations facing a constant fatigue of alerts and incidents that require 24 x 7 attention and focus. The adversary is winning and as a company Cybereason is poised to turn the tables in favour of the defenders. In the Middle East, where breach costs and exfiltration rates are some of the highest in the world, Cybereason stands ready to shore up defences and build safer environments for everyone,” said Kuzbari.
