Phosphorus, a provider of advanced and comprehensive security for the extended Internet of Things (xIoT), has announced a new Middle East and Africa (MEA) distributor partnership with CyberKnight.
The collaboration with a regional cybersecurity value-added distributor is in preparation for the official opening of the Phosphorus MEA office in Dubai on January 1, 2023.
The two companies will collaborate to deliver a new generation of xIoT security solutions for the MEA market as part of their new partnership.
“This region is growing rapidly and many modern cities are incorporating ‘smart’ technologies and infrastructure in novel and exciting ways. However, anything that is smart is vulnerable to security threats, and we will be working closely with CyberKnight to make sure all private and public organisations throughout the region have full access to the most advanced xIoT security solution and platform in the world today.”
“We are excited to partner with CyberKnight which has a strong presence in the Middle East and will play a key role in helping us to expand our international sales channels and xIoT security and service offerings throughout this important economic region,” said Chris Rouland, CEO of Phosphorus.
Phosphorus will significantly expand its global presence in the MEA region with the CyberKnight partnership, providing critical xIoT security technology to these rapidly growing markets. The Enterprise xIoT Security Platform from Phosphorus is the world’s first and only security technology capable of delivering attack surface management, hardening and remediation, and extended detect and response to the full range of IoT, OT, and network-connected devices—both new and legacy devices.
“Due to an onslaught of ransomware and other targeted attacks affecting xIoT devices – especially in the transportation and oil and gas sectors – our customers are looking for solutions that will not only identify IoT and OT devices, but will finally remediate them while providing extended detect and response capabilities,” said Avinash Advani, the Founder and CEO at CyberKnight.
“Our partnership with Phosphorus as our newest vendor will enable us to help our customers address a massive and expanding gap in their attack surface by finding, fixing, and constantly monitoring their IoT, OT, and IIoT devices. We are very excited about working with them to further support our Middle East customers across the region.”
