SecLytics Partners with CyberKnight in the Middle East
This week, SecLytics announced a new distribution partnership with CyberKnight, a leading cybersecurity distributor headquartered in Dubai.
“We are excited to partner with the dynamic team at CyberKnight to help security organizations in the Middle East put the power of predictive intelligence to work protecting their networks, people and infrastructure,” said SecLytics CEO Saeed Abu-Nimeh. “Cybersecurity has never been more top-of-mind, and with Cyberknight as a partner, we’ll be able to show CISOs and SOC managers across the region why our Augur platform should be a cornerstone of their threat intel strategy.”
"Preventing a breach can prove to be an extremely rigorous exercise leaving organizations' SOC teams overwhelmed with noisy security alerts and a high cost of threat intel. Most cybersecurity companies that claim predictive threat detection are not able to foresee an attack. SecLytics is an industry pioneer that detects novel exploits and new threat vectors by identifying cybercriminal infrastructure in the setup stage, on average 60 days before any attack is launched. Seclytics’ Augur is leveraging true XDR so that regional security teams will be able to look into the future to identify tomorrow’s threat vectors today," said Wael Jaber, VP Technology & Services at CyberKnight.
"Our technology scans the internet daily, looking at new IPs, domains, BGP announcements, and DNS resolutions using behavioral profiling to identify criminal infrastructure. The predictions we make are over 97% accurate, and more importantly, they produce an extremely low rate of false positives (0.01%). This means that organizations can trust our predictions enough to act and even automate enforcement. We are excited about our partnership with CyberKnight, whose local teams and channel reach will enable us to help enterprises and governments across the Middle East enhance their detection and response capabilities," commented Abdullah Beshtawi, Regional Manager – MEA at Seclytics.
SecLytics is a pioneer and leader in predictive threat intelligence based in sunny San Diego, California. The Augur pXDR platform leverages the company’s patented predictive threat intelligence, which is based on behavioral profiling and machine learning, to detect the build-up of cybercriminal infrastructure before any attacks are launched. Augur also offers access to more than 120 normalized threat intel sources as well as malware and dark web intel. But Augur is more than just threat intel: the platform also supports SOC operations by streamlining workflows with automated enforcement and providing deep threat hunting context – all from one interface. Augur users include organizations like Cisco, NTT, Arab Bank, and Netskope. Augur also provides fast, easy integrations with most major cybersecurity platforms, including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, AWS GuardDuty, Forcepoint, Fortinet, Splunk, Microsoft Azure Sentinel, and IBM QRadar.
