Evanssion, a value-added distributor (VAD) specialised 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 cyber range for the development of cyber capabilities and the assessment of competencies and organisational cyber resilience
The partnership will see Evanssion deliver 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 organisations 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 organisations 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.
Navneeth Ramanan, assistant vice president - sales for Evanssion, said, “We are thrilled to sign up with CYBER RANGES for the Middle East region. Adding the domain of cyber range solutions to Evanssion’s portfolio enables us to present CYBER RANGES and its world-class offerings to the region at a time when cybersecurity is a top priority for every business across verticals. We will work closely with our partners to promote CYBER RANGES exercises and play a key role in empowering regional businesses to boost their cybersecurity posture, capability, and resilience.”
Dr. Al Graziano, CEO for CYBER RANGES, said, "We welcome the opportunity to work with Evanssion. Team Evanssion is passionate about value-added solutions that unlock tremendous business value for our clients in the GCC region through secure digital transformation, cost effectiveness, ease of implementation and fast ROI.”
