Dubai, UAE, June 13th, 2022: Help AG, the cybersecurity arm of e& enterprise (formerly known as Etisalat Digital) and the region’s trusted security advisor, has become a Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) partner of Securonix, Inc., a leader in Next-Gen SIEM. The partnership will enable Help AG to offer an integrated, cloud-based, analytics-powered Security Operations Centre (SOC) proposition to clients in the United Arab Emirates.
Today, sensitive data, applications, and critical business processes occur in a distributed landscape. Cloud hosting, SaaS providers, mobile devices, mobile apps, and the Internet of Things (IoT) all collect, process, and store data, making it challenging for infrastructure to scale and provide quick value. Securonix offers the leading SaaS-based, multi-tenant security analytics, operations and response platform that provides complete visibility, advanced detection and response, and unlimited scalability. By partnering with Securonix, Help AG is expanding its service portfolio to offer a Next-Gen Cloud SOC offering that combines SIEM and UEBA capabilities in a unified platform to deliver unmatched detection and response capabilities at cloud scale.
Commenting on the partnership, Stephan Berner, Chief Executive Officer at Help AG, said: “Help AG has taken a pioneering role in the region when it comes to secure cloud enablement, and our collaboration with Securonix comes at a critical juncture as UAE organisations across all sectors increasingly migrate to the cloud. The partnership brings together Securonix’s cloud-first, analytics-driven SIEM and UEBA with Help AG’s deep expertise and threat intelligence capabilities for swift detection and remediation”.
He added: “Our collaboration highlights Help AG’s position as the largest and leading MSSP in the region, constantly upgrading our service offering to meet the emerging needs of regional organisations. Additionally, the partnership supports Help AG’s ambition to offer 90% of our deliverables as a service in the coming three years, under our “Help AG as a Service” model”.
David Wagner, Vice President, Global MSSPs and SIs at Securonix, said: “Accelerated cloud adoption has underscored the importance of analytics-driven threat detection and response and visibility across multiple technology layers. Our partnership with Help AG will drive increased adoption of our cloud-native security analytics and operations platform in the UAE market, working hand-in-hand to secure vital cloud and hybrid environments in the region”.
