SecureLink, a risk advisory firm based in Dubai and part of the StarLink group, has announced signing up distribution rights with Synack for the region.
Synack provides a solution that is hacker-powered/crowdsourced, on-demand, and actionable, helping clients realistically defend against cyber-attacks. No longer are customers bound to limited skillsets and personnel, point-in-time testing periods, and limited support following an engagement from their testing providers. Using Synack, customers in the region will gain access to the world’s best security researchers and a powerful, data-driven security platform.
Under this alliance, SecureLink said it will bring to this region a full-service model of disruptive Penetration Testing encompassing a trusted, controlled penetration testing service with the diversity, continuity and incentive driven-nature of bug bounty programmes. This is the first time that a solution of this nature is being launched in the Middle East, according to the firm.
Reghu Mohandas, director, SecureLink said, “We are thrilled that through this partnership with Synack, we can offer our customers a truly adversarial approach to information security. The firm allows customers to continuously test their web, mobile, host, ICS or IOT infrastructure without being hindered by a lack of skillsets. With this partnership, the world’s best researchers are now available for enterprises in the Middle East. We think that this is going to change the way customers do their security testing forever.”
Ron Peeters, managing director EMEA, Synack said, “By onboarding SecureLink to our distribution network, we look forward to capitalizing on their expertise and reach in the GCC region. We intend to rapidly deploy our offensive security solution where customers can safely engage an exclusive set of highly skilled and trusted security researchers, enabling continuous testing of web applications, mobile applications, and host infrastructure.”
