Help AG, the cybersecurity arm of Etisalat Digital has announced its partnership with CyberArk, the identity security company. Through this partnership, Help AG will now deliver a comprehensive identity security platform to its clients in the UAE and Saudi Arabia.
The CyberArk identity security platform enforces the least privilege and secures access across any device, anywhere, and at the right time, a statement said.
Centred on privileged access management, the platform helps organisations secure access to critical business data and infrastructure, protect a distributed workforce, and accelerate business in the cloud.
Commenting on the partnership, Stephan Berner, chief executive officer at Help AG, said:
“By adding CyberArk to our suite, we can now offer our customers the most complete and comprehensive identity security offerings to secure identities, both human and machine. This partnership enables us to leverage CyberArk’s industry-leading capabilities as we deliver an end-to-end managed service as part of our ongoing mission to become the region’s leading service-centric cybersecurity provider.”
Craig Harwood, regional sales director, Africa and Middle East at CyberArk added:
“Working with Help AG will further expand the reach of our identity security solutions with customers in this growing region. In serious cybersecurity attacks worldwide, the initial infection point is often a single compromised identity, whether that be human or non-human. Leveraging zero trust and least privilege principles, the CyberArk platform monitors and manages how sensitive data and assets are accessed to better secure all user types across hybrid and cloud environments, business applications, and throughout the DevOps lifecycle.”
Last year, Help AG introduced a completely cloud-delivered managed Advanced Web Application Firewall (AWAF) solution that helps organisations that rely on web-based applications enhance their security posture.
“With more and more applications moving to the cloud, customers are increasingly exposed to sophisticated attacks wherein hackers take advantage of attack vectors that bypass traditional network and host-based security technologies. Help AG’s Managed AWAF service enhances customers’ cybersecurity posture and offers them industry-leading protection and an assurance of uninterrupted web-hosted business applications,”
Berner had said then.
