Dubai, United Arab Emirates, May 23, 2022: Evanssion, a value-added distributor (VAD) specializing in cloud native and cybersecurity in the Middle East and Africa, has announced its distribution partnership with CYBER RANGES by Silensec, a full-content, next-generation, military-grade cyber range and life cycle for cyber capability development and assessment of competencies and organizational cyber resilience. Under the terms of the partnership, Evanssion will provide companies in the Middle East region with CYBER RANGES’ entire portfolio of world-class cybersecurity training and skills development exercises.
Human behavior remains the leading cause of security breaches, accounting for up to 95% of them. Evolving business models and changing market conditions continue to expand the attack surface and leave security teams overwhelmed. Regional businesses need to assess their preparedness in the event of an attack and whether their resources are capable of efficiently handling these incidents. Gartner predicts that by 2022, 15% of larger organizations will use a cyber range to develop the skills of their security teams, up from less than 1% today. CYBER RANGES can help regional organizations prepare for and resist cyberattacks by creating exercises using real-world attack scenarios in an isolated, secure environment.
Evanssion, along with its extensive partner network, will raise awareness and conduct large-scale cyber exercises for organizations in the region to test their cyber resilience through CYBER RANGES offerings. The distributor will also hold training sessions for its partners to help them become more familiar with CYBER RANGES solutions to be better equipped to position it with regional customers.
Commenting on the collaboration, Navneeth Ramanan, Associate Vice President – Sales at Evanssion said: “We are thrilled to sign up with CYBER RANGES for the Middle East region. Adding the Cyber Range solutions area to Evanssion’s portfolio allows us to showcase CYBER RANGES and its best-in-class offerings in the region at a time when cybersecurity is a top priority for every business across all industries. We will work closely with our partners to promote CYBER RANGES exercises and play a key role in empowering regional businesses to improve their cybersecurity posture, skills and resilience.”
dr Commenting on the partnership, Al Graziano, CEO of CYBER RANGES said: “We welcome the opportunity to work with Evanssion.
