Dubai, United Arab Emirates, November 18, 2020 --( Cyberton, leading cyber security value added distributors headquartered out of Dubai, United Arab Emirates has cemented a distribution agreement with CyCognito – who provides a SaaS platform for attack surface and digital risk protection for large organizations.

Compelling challenges exist when it comes to security for most organizations across the region under these difficult times. There has always been the need to gain greater visibility to what is going on within the organization when it comes to information security. To address this need, most of them have deployed a variety of cyber defense mechanisms to safeguard their infrastructure.

One key aspect that gets lesser attention is the attack surface – the collection of attack vectors bad actors can use to compromise the organization and its data. Naturally, the more visibility you have, and the more continuously updated it is, the better it is because you cannot protect what you cannot see. CyCognito is all about visibility and their platform helps you identify, prioritize and eliminate the most critical risks across your entire attack surface – addresses Network Security Risks, Confidentiality Risks, Application Security Risks, Reputation Risks amongst others. The solution leverages CyCognito’s capabilities in machine learning as well as their Global Bot Network to bring you visibility hitherto not possible.

Organizations do not have to go through the hassle of deploying any software or agents – with a mere subscription to their SaaS portal CyCognito could get you unparalleled and constant visibility which will in turn aids security professionals in rapidly remediating what’s most critical to address, and validating those remediations.

“Visibility has been the Achilles heel for most CISOs / Head of Security across enterprises. During the ongoing pandemic, many organizations are having skeleton staff to manage their infrastructure with several working from remote locations – the necessity of solutions such as CyCognito could not be further stressed as it could help organization exercise more control over protecting their assets,” said Jayadevan K, President, Cyberton Global DMCC.

“Our mission is to build the next-generation security risk assessment product category: solutions that autonomously discover, enumerate, and prioritize each organization’s security risks based upon a global analysis of all external attack surfaces, and attack vectors that a real attacker would likely exploit,” said Carrie Roberts, Senior Director Global Channel Sales, CyCognito
