Kaspersky has announced the opening of its new office in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Establishing this new office in the kingdom is a milestone in the company’s roadmap to protect over 400 million users and 240,000 corporate clients worldwide, a statement said.

Emphasising the importance of establishing a regional office in the kingdom, Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of Kaspersky, said: “Given the evolving nature of cyberthreats, this step will further contribute to ensuring that our local clients and partners have access to best-in-class cybersecurity solutions to protect their businesses and infrastructure. I am convinced that establishing a regional office will also underline our strong commitment in guiding, sharing our expertise with, and supporting the region in enhancing its cybersecurity resilience and sustainable growth.”

Mohamad Hashem, country manager, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain at Kaspersky remarked, “Saudi Arabia continues to be a priority market for Kaspersky in the region. As the country moves forward in its innovation and digital-first agenda at great speed, there is a need for a strong cybersecurity posture. This can be achieved only if companies across all industries learn, understand, educate, adapt and invest in cybersecurity solutions with true potential. Our presence, commitment and focus in Saudi Arabia is on giving organisations in Saudi Arabia the power, expertise, and knowledge to deliver on their promise to keep their customers and citizens protected.”

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia has been ranked first in cybersecurity readiness in the Middle East and North Africa region according to the Global Cybersecurity Index. Adding to the efforts to build a strong cybersecurity infrastructure, the kingdom also introduced a National Cybersecurity Strategy with several similar initiatives underway to ensure future readiness with a digital-first approach.
