Menlo Security Appoints CyberKnight as VAD for META

Gartner’s analysis indicates that 98% of external information security attacks occur through the public internet, with 80% of these attacks specifically targeting end users via their browsers. Furthermore, recent research by The Ponemon Institute reveals that 72% of breached enterprises surveyed experienced infiltration through the browser. In response to the evolving threat landscape in the region, IT Security teams find themselves compelled to reinforce their cybersecurity defences against online threats.

To enhance the protection of sensitive data during phishing and malware attacks for enterprise and government organizations, CyberKnight has partnered with Menlo Security. Menlo Security’s innovative browser security platform strengthens CyberKnight’s commitment to delivering cutting-edge cybersecurity solutions to the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa (META). Notably, the platform is recognized as an industry-first ransomware protection solution, utilizing deep analysis of web sessions and AI to effectively block zero-hour phishing attacks.

As a member of Crowdstrike’s CrowdXDR Alliance, Menlo Security provides defence against malware delivered by Highly Evasive Adaptive Threats (HEAT) and prevents zero-day exploits from reaching customer endpoints. Additionally, Menlo Security integrates seamlessly with Appgate SDP, enabling users to browse the internet and access SaaS apps securely while providing private access to enterprise resources in a unified experience.

“Our collaboration with Menlo Security complements our Zero Trust Security offering by ensuring that there is no direct connection between end users and the websites and applications they access. All users, devices, data, and web content are controlled in real-time to ensure that users cannot access resources they are not authorized to, threats cannot enter the network, through either applications or websites and sensitive data is not sent to insecure applications,” commented Wael Jaber, Chief Strategy Officer at CyberKnight.

“Menlo continues to align itself with leading partners around the world, such as CyberKnight, which will allow us to deliver enterprise-grade and browser security to this burgeoning tech region,” said Robert Cole-Lomas, senior director of channels, EMEA at Menlo Security. “We are excited about our partnership with CyberKnight, which allows us to leverage its regional coverage, channel breadth, and deep-rooted customer relationships. We look forward to partnering closely with the CyberKnight team to advance a shared mission in securing enterprises.”
