Strategic Partnership Aims to Drive Innovation and Accelerate Data Privacy Adoption in the Middle East
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, May 01, 2023: Evanssion, a leading cybersecurity and cloud-native VAD, today, announced that it has signed a distribution partnership with BigID, the leading platform for data security, compliance, privacy, and governance. This collaboration aims to tackle the intricate challenges faced by enterprises in ensuring data visibility and control across their organizations, while facilitating the rapid adoption of data privacy measures in the Middle East region.
Businesses are currently facing a pressing need to bolster their data security measures and conform to stringent national privacy regulations. According to a recent Gartner report titled “Innovation Insight for Data Security Posture Management,” this trend is set to gain significant momentum.
