Tarek Kuzbari, Regional Director – Middle East & Turkey, Cybereason, explains how Cybereason will help channel partners leverage cybersecurity innovation in 2021.

The sudden transition to remote work, brought on by the pandemic, resulted in many companies ensuring employees had the necessary tools to work remotely. However, that left little focus on the rising security risks that come with home networks and endpoints.

In the post-COVID era, companies will have to rely more on public clouds for unbeatable business agility, and the accelerated market adoption of cloud for critical workloads will be threatened by the continuous expansion of the attack surface and will require a security paradigm shift. Furthermore, regional data sovereignty requirements demand solution providers can deliver the benefits the cloud offers while assuring security and compliance regulations are met no matter where business is conducted.

To address these challenges, Cybereason has entered into a partnership with Oracle to protect global enterprises against advanced cybersecurity threats at every endpoint and across the enterprise. Oracle and Cybereason share a vision for providing our channel partners with the most competitive offerings in the market, that allow defenders to reverse the adversary advantage.

Channel partners will benefit from the combined value of the Cybereason Defence Platform Machine Learning prevention, detection and automated remediation capabilities, and the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) will provide global scalability with microsecond latency and low costs.

Key benefits that channel partners can leverage for their customers include:

  • Improved security and risk posture, reduced operational costs for endpoint and desktop security and increased productivity of security operations teams
  • Reduced time to detection and recovery from cyber incidents via architected-in security that reduces overall complexity, reduces the impact from human error and improves response time with self-securing and adaptive defences
  • Building in the cloud with confidence leveraging integrated security and essential services to protect paths to data across cloud and on-premises deployments and support compliance and governance.

Oracle also has data centres in multiple regions not served by other cloud providers, so the Oracle and Cybereason partnership empowers our channel partners to deliver for their customer’s operations where there are strict data sovereignty laws.

Commenting on this partnership, our CEO and Cybereason Co-Founder, Lior Div, said, “We’re excited to collaborate with Oracle to enhance our company’s cloud infrastructure for our award-winning unified protection platform. We chose Oracle Cloud Infrastructure because of its security-first approach and performance.

“Together, we will deliver unmatched visibility and risk reduction to our global customer base. Additionally, the Oracle Cloud global footprint will enable Cybereason to offer in-country hosting in more locations for meeting regulatory data sovereignty requirements.”

The collaboration means that the customers of our channel partners will benefit from a cloud-native architecture that secures endpoints on a global scale and faster deployment – all protected by the industry’s leading endpoint prevention, detection and response capabilities for the enterprise.

This multi-year partnership will deliver an initial deployment reach of about 300,000 global endpoints and create a standardised and repeatable architecture that scales quickly, provides a competitive price point for our channel partners and is ready for multi-region deployment based on customer demand.

Trust and flexibility are key when we work with our channel partners. Working together we found a similar culture and passion – bringing together the best security architecture for protecting customer’s cloud assets. Together, we look forward to better serving and securing our worldwide customer base.
