NetWitness announces presence at Black Hat MEA

News Desk -

NetWitness®, a trusted global provider of cybersecurity technologies and incident response services, announces its participation as an exhibitor and keynote speaker at Black Hat Middle East and Africa (MEA), 15-17 November 2022, Riyadh Front Exhibitions and Conferences Center, Saudi Arabia.

For over two decades, Black Hat has been one of the most relevant cybersecurity and infosec training events in the world—and now, with the inaugural edition of Black Hat MEA, its goal is to engage this thriving region for continued success in ICT security.

“I’m honored for being selected as a speaker at Black Hat MEA,” says Gabrielle Hempel, System Engineer at NetWitness. “I expect some eye-opening research to be demonstrated at Black Hat MEA, as well as briefings and trainings that spark new conversations and collaboration across the community.  NetWitness has a unique value because it is a complete Threat Detection & Response Platform across all XDR pillars: network, endpoints, and logs and it leverages strong forensics (e.g. full session reconstruction), and unsupervised machine learning capabilities. 

More than 200 global infosec influencers, including 50 Black Hat trainers and hundreds of ethical hackers, will travel from all over the world to share their experiences and provide training on how to stay ahead of the dark criminal networks attempting to devastate critical infrastructure.

NetWitness will be one of the event’s leading good actors, with two valuable speakers: Abdullah Al-Jallal Territory Manager, KSA and Gabrielle Hempel, System Engineer, demonstrating the importance of working together to address cybersecurity issues plaguing the MEA region and the rest of the world. 

“Cybersecurity is a constant battle between the good guys and the bad,” says Abdullah ALSaadoun, Manager GCC and Levant Gulf NetWitness. “Our adversaries use sophisticated, constantly evolving tactics to not be seen as they seek new ways to evade our defenses. Visibility, Detection, and Reponse: this isour promise to ensure the best cyber defense and resilience.” 

NetWitness will greet customers and partners at Stand #H4.E59 to demonstrate the latest NetWitness XDR 12, the industry’s most comprehensive XDR solution and the first in the market to deliver on the promise of extended detection and response.
