LogRhythm appoints KSA cyber security experts
A recent report from PricewaterhouseCoopers has branded the Middle East a magnet for some of the world’s most damaging cyberattacks, with Saudi Arabia, in particular, subject to a slew of damaging breaches. 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. In light of this threat escalation, security intelligence company LogRhythm is expanding its presence in the kingdom and has appointed three experts to help scale up its footprint.
“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’ve appointed three experienced professionals to manage and boost our presence there,” said Mazen Dohaji, LogRhythm’s Regional Director for the Middle East, Turkey and Africa.
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. These three professionals are specialists who wield extensive experience in the region and they possess a thorough understanding of the cyber security needs of businesses operating within Saudi Arabia.
“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.
