Value-added distributor Spire Solutions has signed an agreement with research and advisory firm Gartner. The service agreement, signed by the two companies at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, will allow Spire Solutions to tap into Gartner’s expertise and bring global cybersecurity practices to the Middle East.
Sanjeev Walia, CEO, Spire Solutions, said the agreement as another significant milestone for the company as it steps into its second decade of providing information security solutions and services to the region.
“We will leverage this partnership and Gartner’s global insights to strengthen our offerings to the channel and our customers. We are certain that Gartner’s body of knowledge will prove fundamental in assisting local organisations in building a cohesive and effective security environment,” said Walia.
Spire Solutions provides key technologies such as threat exposure management, end-point detection and response (EDR) and threat hunting, and business risk intelligence (BRI) to the region’s organisations. The value-added distributor is now planning to expand its operations in KSA, while improving its standing in the UAE, and securing a larger market share in Oman, Kuwait and Bahrain.
“Our presence and our team is growing in line with the rising demand for capable, efficient cybersecurity solutions in the region. We believe that given this promising trajectory, we can increase our engagement by the end of 2018, and are investing in technology and market research to better align our solutions and services to the region’s needs,” he added.
