Riyadh, KSA — September 6, 2022 — CyberKnight Technologies (“CyberKnight“), the cybersecurity focused value-added-distributor (VAD) headquartered in Dubai, today announced a new partnership with Owl Cyber Defense, the leading provider of hardware-enforced security solutions for military, intelligence and critical infrastructure organizations, strategically aimed at addressing cybersecurity threats impacting critical infrastructure and government ministries in the Middle East.
Cyberattacks against critical infrastructure providers globally are resulting in major disruptions to utilities and services, damage to equipment, or worse. Unfortunately, many systems within such organizations are dated and vulnerable, and restricted downtime means that patch windows are rare. To address these challenges in the Middle East, CyberKnight has enlisted the expertise of Owl Cyber Defense.
“As we build out our operational technology (OT) and critical infrastructure portfolio, we are excited about this new partnership with Owl Cyber Defense, as no other vendor matches their cross domain and data diode capabilities,” said Vivek Gupta, Co-Founder and COO at CyberKnight. “The technology is accredited by the U.S. Government and EAL Certified, offering enterprise ready solutions to regional customers, with a focus on solving today’s network security problems, in the most challenging environments.”
CyberKnight’s AI-driven Zero Trust Security (ZTX) framework incorporates emerging and market-leading cybersecurity solutions that protect the entire attack surface, eliminating security gaps while enabling digital transformation with intelligent security for complex hybrid environments that protects user data across devices and applications no matter their location.
