20 Jan UAE’s Global Security Network customers get new email security solution
Leading email defence company Vade Secure has partnered with Global Security Network (GSN), a UAE-based company that has spent more than 20 years delivering security solutions in the Middle East.
GSN’s customers in the region will now be able to use the Vade Secure predictive email defense system for Microsoft 365, which is already protecting one billion inboxes around the world.
The partnership announcement comes after GSN and its users experienced a dramatic rise in the number of BEC and spear phishing attacks on Microsoft 365 customers in the region.
A GSN spokesperson said: “We have seen SMEs and local corporate branches lose huge sums of money, ranging from hundreds of thousands of dollars to several million dollars. The combination of GSN’s hands-on experience and Vade Secure’s email protection expertise is the perfect solution to tackle these threats and lower risk to an acceptable level.”
Vade Secure is currently developing its business in the Middle East and South Asia, a region in which GSN has spent more than two decades delivering high-end IT security solutions.
As a trusted security vendor, GSN was the first company in the Middle East to implement a Cyber Security Risk Management Framework compliant with standards including ISO/IEC 27001, ISA/IEC 62443 (ex ISA99) and UAE NESA.
Frédéric Braut, Vade Secure EVP Sales, said: “We’re very excited to be bringing our Microsoft 365 protection software to customers in the Middle East and South Asia. This partnership with GSN will help us to make sure that organizations across the region are protected from the growing number of email threats.”
Vade Secure helps businesses using managed service providers (MSPs) in 76 countries to shield Microsoft 365 users from email security threats such as malware, phishing and spear-phishing. It also works with Telcos and ISPs to help them secure messaging for consumers.
To help ISPs and email service providers cope with an ever-changing threat landscape, Vade Secure recently launched a new, modular mail transfer agent (MTA) that allows them to set up their own bespoke email protection system.
