Risk advisory firm SecureLink partners with hacker-powered, Synack
SecureLink, a risk advisory firm based in Dubai and part of the StarLink group, announced signing up distribution rights with Synack for the region. Synack is disrupting the age-old penetration testing model by providing a solution that is hacker-powered, crowdsourced, on-demand, and actionable, helping clients realistically defend against cyber-attacks.
No longer are customers bound to limited skillsets and personnel, point-in-time testing periods, and limited support following an engagement from their testing providers. Using Synack, customers in the region will gain access to the world’s best security researchers and a powerful, data-driven security platform.
Under this alliance with Synack, SecureLink will bring to this region a full-service model of disruptive penetration testing encompassing a trusted, controlled penetration testing service with the diversity, continuity and incentive driven-nature of bug bounty programmes. This is the first time that a solution of this nature is being launched in the Middle East.
Reghu Mohandas, Director at SecureLink said, “We are thrilled that through this partnership with Synack, we can offer our customers a truly adversarial approach to information security. Synack allows customers to continuously test their web, mobile, host, ICS or IOT infrastructure without being hindered by a lack of skillsets. With Synack, the world’s best researchers are now available for enterprises in the Middle East. We think that this is going to change the way customers do their security testing forever.”
Ron Peeters, Managing Director EMEA, at Synack said, “By onboarding SecureLink to our distribution network, we look forward to capitalising on their expertise and reach in the GCC region. We intend to rapidly deploy our offensive security solution where customers can safely engage an exclusive set of highly skilled and trusted security researchers, enabling continuous testing of web applications, mobile applications, and host infrastructure.”
Synack is a security company revolutionising how enterprises view cybersecurity – through a hacker’s eyes. Synack’s crowdsourced security platform arms clients with hundreds of the world’s most skilled, highly vetted ethical hackers who provide a truly adversarial perspective of clients’ IT environments.
