Entrust, a trusted identity, payments and data protection company, has announced its new distribution partnership with CyberKnight, a Dubai-based cybersecurity-focused value-added-distributor (VAD).

The partnership will see the two companies jointly build solutions for the Middle Eastern market. In addition, it will enable the delivery of digital security solutions to customers, by tapping into CyberKnight’s local network to offer advice, education, and expertise.

Both the companies are strategically aligned on their security vision with a ‘zero trust’ philosophy.

“Digital transformation in the Middle East continues to evolve at a phenomenal pace, especially as the demands of the past two years called for a rapid implementation of cloud-based systems to manage the unprecedented shift to remote workforces,” said Scott Kemish, global vice president Channel Sales, Entrust. “In order to support local customers championing cloud adoption while meeting the requirements of local compliance regulations, as well as protecting themselves against an all-time-high of cybercrime, we have entered a stage of channel development that requires our channel distribution partners to stand up and make a difference; CyberKnight have all of the right attributes that we are looking for in the market.”

Over the last two years, the rapid adoption of cloud solutions to enable remote working resulted in an increase in cybercrime globally. Cybercrime is set to cost the global economy $10.5tn annually by 2025. And industry research reveals that, in the UAE, the average cost of remediating a ransomware attack is over $500,000.

“The pandemic has reminded us that cybercriminals are constantly fine-tuning their skills and techniques. If we do not help our customers do the same, then they will be playing catch-up” said Avinash Advani, founder and CEO of CyberKnight. “Our partnership with Entrust as our newest vendor will enable us to continue helping customers fill the existing gap between their digital transformation efforts, and their security posture by securing their digital ecosystems as well as supporting them with their zero-trust security journey. We are very excited about working with them to further support our local customers across the region.

Entrust’s solutions, PKI, identity and access management, encryption key management and hardware security modules are available to local customers through the partnership.
