Riyadh – MENA Herald: The FireEye Partner Conference, KSA, saw FireEye executives discussing how both public and private sector entities can counter the challenges of a steadily evolving cyber landscape to better protect information assets. Aimed at further building on the strong relationship with partners in the country, the conference brought together over a hundred delegates from 25 partners in the Kingdom. Over the course of the event, partners were briefed on recent acquisitions by FireEye, such as iSight Partners, developments in the FireEye platform and the company’s partner strategy for 2016.

A quote from Mohammed Abukhater, Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa at FireEye:

“As a wide spectrum of cyberthreat players step up their attacks, getting bolder by the day, our partner conference in Saudi Arabia could not have come at a better time. The role played by our partners in preparing the organizations of tomorrow to face a new generation of cyberattacks is invaluable. As the Kingdom introduces a wave of reforms and initiatives to drive the national economy, in line with the aspirations of Saudi Vision 2030, organizations in the country need to be aware of modern-day threats and the potential danger they pose to everyday business operations. Now more than ever, they will find themselves in need of a solutions provider that can help them go from detection to fix in the shortest amount of time possible. With the help of our partners in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, FireEye aims to bolster organizational readiness, thus cutting costs and driving business growth.”
