eSentire partnership to help Middle East SME’s combat cybercrime

eSentire a leader in Active Threat Protection solutions and managed security services has partnered with Credence Security, a leading provider of cybersecurity, digital forensics, and IT technologies and solutions, to provide mid-sized enterprises in the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa regions with advanced cybersecurity capabilities and threat protection. This announcement follows eSentire’s recent launch of its new global channel partner program, which spans North America, EMEA, and Asia Pacific.

“As a new entrant in to the region, it is essential to partner with a company that is solely focused on cybersecurity, has strong technology and sales support capabilities, in-depth knowledge and understanding of the local market, and most importantly, relationships with resellers and end customers,” said Mark Adams, vice president of Channels, eSentire. “As a value-added distributor, Credence Security has the pre-requisites to help us ‘tell the eSentire story’ and work with us to deliver best-in-class cybersecurity solutions to mid-sized enterprises in the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa.”

Partnering with Credence Security allows eSentire to gain market presence and access to a key part of the EMEA market, connecting its service capabilities to partners and customers in that region. By partnering with eSentire, Credence Security can further strengthen its portfolio of complementary security solutions, creating opportunities for growing its business with existing accounts, and adding new customers.

As an eSentire distributor for reseller partners in the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa, Credence Security will have dedicated resources focusing on providing pre-sales support to partners and end customers for eSentire’s core portfolio of Active Threat Protection services, specifically:

• Network InterceptorTM – a proprietary network appliance delivered as a continuous managed service
• Host InterceptorTM – a service that works in conjunction with Network Interceptor to provide core network containment capabilities
• Log SentryTM – a service that collects, centralizes, and correlates critical event log data from any network-attached asset
• Continuous Vulnerability Scanning (CVS) – delivered as a continuous managed service. CVS affords the end customer with the opportunity to drastically reduce their exploit window by having a current list of systems requiring patching and password updates.

“Cyber-attacks like phishing and watering hole attacks are growing more and more sophisticated by the day and can easily bypass traditional security technologies that focus on perimeter defense,” said Garreth Scott, director of sales, Credence Security. “Backed by eSentire’s best-in-class technology solutions, skilled security analysts, threat intelligence team, and global network of sensors, we can now offer mid-sized enterprises in the Middle East the most advanced cybersecurity-as-a-service available, ultimately helping them stay one step ahead of the attackers.”

Credence Security is also helping eSentire with its demand generation efforts, having already uncovered several end user opportunities in the region.

eSentire and Credence Security will exhibit in stand B-140 at the Gulf Information Security Expo & Conference (GISEC), March 29-31st at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
