According to Gartner, the global cost of cybercrime will increase and worldwide spending on cybersecurity is estimated to hit $133.7 billion in 2022. The coronavirus outbreak has exacerbated the threat as organizations are faced with the challenge of keeping as many business-critical functions running as possible, while maintaining adequate security in a completely new environment. In fact, “sixty-eight percent of business leaders admit their cybersecurity risks are growing”, which increases the need for organizations to work together to leverage joint resources and collectively defend against common threats.
To address threat detection challenges faced by enterprise and government customers in the region, CyberKnight has partnered with IronNet Cybersecurity. IronNet’s unique and innovative Collective Defense functionality, called IronDome, allows organizations of all sizes to share behavioral threat data anonymously, at network speed, to increase visibility of incoming cyber-attacks. Combined with higher-order behavioral analytics, Collective Defense allows customers to leverage a wider pool of cybersecurity expertise and threat visibility to detect and respond to sophisticated threats.
At the heart of IronNet’s threat detection capabilities is IronDefense, IronNet’s NTA platform, which delivers largely scalable behavioral analysis and integrated packet-level cyber hunting capabilities. The solution leverages machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques to detect advanced threats often missed by existing commercial cybersecurity solutions.
“Through the partnership with IronNet we aim to support regional customers with real-time, actionable network threat detection by leveraging the offensive and defensive knowledge of IronNet’s cyber operators. With Collective Defense enabled, SOC teams will also be able to see attacks that are targeting their community, prioritize the most urgent threats and understand how other security teams have responded to optimize their defenses more proactively,” commented Ehab Derbas, VP Sales at CyberKnight.
“Giving our customers in the Middle East the ability to visualize the threat landscape across organizations and industries is core to our Collective Defense mission. With recent events only compounding the need to combat continuously evolving threats, network visibility is a critical and foundational element to helping customers keep infrastructure safe and functional. Our platform provides greater visibility into hard-to-detect attacks, such as modified malware, malware-less attacks, newly engineered attacks, and those masquerading as benign entities,” said Alex Depret-Bixio, IronNet’s Regional Sales Director – META.
