SentinelOne, an autonomous cybersecurity platform company, has announced its intention to attend Cairo ICT 2022 from November 27-30, where it will showcase its cutting-edge autonomous extended detection and response (XDR) platform, as well as identity and credential protection solutions.
Cairo ICT is an important technology fair and forum for the Middle East and Africa. The 26th edition, themed ‘Leading Change,’ will cover a variety of topics, including innovative solutions for modern data centers, 5G & IoT, cybersecurity, digital transformation, and global digital government transformation. The topics are consistent with Egypt’s ICT 2030 strategy, which aims to contribute to the achievement of Egypt’s Vision 2030 objectives through the ‘Digital Egypt’ initiative.
Digital Egypt is positioned as a comprehensive vision and plan that lays the groundwork for Egypt’s transformation into a digital society. Its strategy is founded on three major pillars: digital transformation, digital skills and jobs, and digital innovation.
“Cairo ICT is one of the region’s most established technology events and has maintained its standing as a keystone event coming out of the pandemic. We are excited to join the 26th edition and are eager to demonstrate our industry leading Singularity XDR and Singularity for Identity autonomous cybersecurity solutions, which have already proven themselves in applications around the world. Egypt is stepping up its focus on ICT and digital transformation, which in turn means that organizations in the public and private sectors need to deploy powerful enterprise focused cybersecurity solutions to secure their assets in the face of a continuously evolving threat landscape,” said Tamer Odeh, Regional Sales Director, SentinelOne.
According to International Trade Administration data, Egypt’s ICT sector is growing at a faster rate than the country’s overall GDP growth, equivalent to 16% in fiscal year 2020/2021 compared to 15.2% in fiscal year 2019/2020. The ICT sector’s contribution to GDP increased to 5% in fiscal year 2020/2021, up from 4.4% in 2019/2020, and total investments in the sector reached nearly $3 billion in fiscal year 2020/2021, as the country embraces technology and digital transformation to diversify and strengthen its economy.
As the country broadly embraces technology and digital transformation, it’s absolutely critical that organizations in the public and private sectors also invest into cybersecurity solutions, to protect against potent attacks from global threat actors.
“The threat landscape today is deadlier than ever and demands an efficient and effective response by cybersecurity solutions such as ours, which offer enterprise-wide
autonomous, comprehensive and responsive protection that can protect organizations from breaches that can cause significant time and financial impact. We look forward to showcasing our solutions to visitors at the event and, equally, to meeting with existing partners and new potential customers at Cairo ICT 2022,” added Odeh.
As technology pervades an organization, it is critical that cybersecurity solutions can see across its infrastructure and provide effective protection as well as an automated response across the connected security ecosystem. SentinelOne’s Singularity XDR was created with these needs in mind; it can autonomously supercharge, fortify, automate, and extend protection from the endpoint to the cloud, with unrivaled visibility, proven protection, and industry-leading responsiveness.
When compared to traditional approaches, Singularity XDR was designed to be better, faster, and autonomous; this has distinguished the solution as a comprehensively better approach to cybersecurity. Furthermore, the cutting-edge solution was created with the security analyst experience in mind from the beginning, which means it provides users with richer data, smarter workflows, and powerful tools at every stage of the threat lifecycle.
Identity-based infrastructure has become a core function of scaling businesses in recent years, and ‘identity’ cybersecurity has become an important component of the cybersecurity mix. Today, cybersecurity experts are warning that this surface has become a primary attack vector for threat actors, with Active Directory flaws and misuse playing a significant role in recent, highly disruptive ransomware attacks. This means that organizations must take a comprehensive approach to securing their identity layer.
SentinelOne’s trusted Singularity for Identity solution, designed to address this cybersecurity requirement comprehensively, can: prevent attack opportunities by closing gaps in Active Directory and Azure AD that attackers frequently exploit; prevent attack progression by finding and misdirecting covert actors attempting to steal credentials; and build resilience by gaining insights and intelligence from attempted attacks to prevent repeated compromises.
SentinelOne’s senior executives and cybersecurity experts will be on hand at stand 2G10 to meet with customers and partners during Cairo ICT 2022.
