The collaboration will see the distributor creating awareness for regional businesses to test their cyber resiliency in increasingly digitalized and distributed work environments.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, May 15, 2022: Evanssion, a value-added distributor (VAD) specialized in Cloud Native and Cyber Security across Middle East and Africa, has announced that it has signed a distribution partnership with CYBER RANGES by Silensec, a next-generation military-grade full-content- lifecycle cyber range for the development of cyber capabilities and the assessment of competencies and organizational cyber resilience. As per the terms of the partnership, Evanssion will deliver the full extent of CYBER RANGES portfolio of world class cybersecurity training and capability development exercises to enterprises in the Middle East region.

Human error continues to be biggest cause for security breaches, amounting for up to 95%. The evolving business models and changing market circumstances are also further expanding the attack surfaces leaving security teams stretched thin. Regional businesses must evaluate their readiness should an attack happen and assess if their resources are capable to handle those incidents efficiently. Gartner predicts that by 2022, 15% of larger enterprises will be using CYBER RANGES to develop the skills of their security teams, up from less than 1% currently. CYBER RANGES can help regional organizations prepare and withstand cyber-attacks by creating exercises with real life attack scenarios in an isolated environment.

Evanssion together with its extensive partner network will create awareness and cyber drills for organizations in the region to test their cyber resiliency with CYBER RANGES offerings. The distributor will also hold training sessions for its partners to help them get well versed with CYBER RANGES solutions to be better equipped to position it to regional customers.

Commenting on the collaboration, Ahmad Al Qadri, Chief Executive Officer, Evanssion, said, “We are thrilled to sign up with CYBER RANGES for the Middle East region. The company functions in the domain of cyber range solutions, cyber drills, cybersecurity training and other exercises, cyber capability development and assessment and threat emulation scenarios. We are bringing the company and its world class offerings into the region at a time when cybersecurity is on top of mind for every business across verticals. We will work closely with our partners to promote CYBER RANGES exercises and play a key role in empowering regional businesses to boost their cybersecurity posture and resilience.”

Commenting on the partnership, Dr. Al Graziano, CEO for CYBER RANGES, said, "We welcome the opportunity to work with Evanssion. Team Evanssion is passionate about value-added solutions that unlock tremendous business value for our Clients in the GCC region through secure digital transformation, cost effectiveness, ease of implementation and fast ROI.
