Dubai - MENA Herald:

FireEye, Inc., the intelligence-led security company, and STC Solutions, a leader in providing integrated communications services in Saudi Arabia, today announced a new strategic partnership aimed to deliver a high standard of cyber security across Saudi Arabia – one of the most-attacked countries in the Middle East.

The strategic alliance will allow organizations within the Kingdom to have access to front-line cyber security solutions that deliver a combination of technology, intelligence, services and expertise to provide protection from today’s rapidly changing security threats. Under the agreement, STC Solutions will become a FireEye managed security partner, offering services including Network Security, FireEye® Helix™ and Endpoint Security. The agreement also allows STC’s customers access to Mandiant® Consulting Services from FireEye, which offers services such as Breach Response, Penetration Testing and Red Team Assessments.  

Mohammed Abukhater, Vice President, MEA, FireEye said: "In regions like Saudi Arabia where cyber attacks are often sophisticated and occur regularly, collaboration between companies to provide comprehensive defence is essential. We expect that STC Solutions will be a valuable strategic partner for us with its strong technical expertise and close relations with local organisations from both the private and public sectors. Its customers now have access to the full range of FireEye solutions and to our experts who have thousands of hours of front-line cyber experience."

“Attack surfaces are rapidly expanding as businesses look to scale and take advantage of cloud-based technologies,” said Fahad AlJutaily, Vice President, Cybersecurity, STC Solutions. “FireEye is a longstanding and trusted partner with an exceptional track record in the cybersecurity space. Together, we can offer a powerful range of solutions to help safeguard Saudi organisations’ futures, as well as elevate their ability to pioneer new services. This will be particularly important as we accelerate our support for major digital transformation initiatives associated with Saudi Vision 2030.”
