Condo Protego, the UAE-based IT infrastructure and information management consultancy, has joined the Secureworks Global Partner Programme, helping to boost the region’s $22 billion cybersecurity market and enhance security in the digitally connected world. As Middle East countries and organizations digitally transform, especially as remote work ramps up amid the Covid-19 era, they are also expanding the threat surface while confronting an ever-growing roster of increasingly complex cyber-threats.
Showing the strong market potential, the Middle East’s cyber security market is set to reach a record-high of $22 billion by 2022, roughly double the value of $11 billion in 2017, according to a recent report by Markets and Markets. Secureworks enriches organizations’ defences with intelligence from up to 310 billion cyber events that the company observes each day. Worldwide, Secureworks counts more than 4,100 customers across more than 50 countries.
In the Middle East, Condo Protego is seeing strong demand for Secureworks solutions such as Adversarial Security Testing and Security Consulting to test security defences; Incident Response, which helps organizations to prepare for and respond to cyber incidents; and Red Cloak Threat Detection and Response, which applies advanced analytics and threat intelligence to alert about suspicious activity.
“The Middle East’s record-high cybersecurity market shows how organizations are prioritising cybersecurity alongside their digital transformation,” said Andrew Calthorpe, CEO, Condo Protego. “By joining the Secureworks Global Partner Programme, Condo Protego aims to further our goals of becoming the Middle East’s leading cybersecurity channel partner.”
“Now, more than ever, businesses need partners who can provide modern security solutions that enable digital transformation while also protecting their data, reputation and revenue,” said Maureen Perrelli, Chief Channel Officer, Secureworks. “We’re pleased to welcome Congo Protego into the Secureworks Global Partner Programme, and together we can help organizations close their cybersecurity gap with industry-leading software and solutions.”
