Bulwark & Holm Security partner
June 2023 by Marc Jacob
Organizations in the Middle East will be able to better protect themselves against business-crippling cyber hacks that cost the region millions of dollars every year, thanks to a new partnership between Bulwark Distribution FZCO and Holm Security.
The cost of cyber security incidents within the Middle East has reached a new high of $6.93 million US dollars per data breach, according to IBM’s ‘Cost of a Data Breach Report 2022’. This figure is significantly higher than the global cost per incident, which is $4.24 million U.S dollars. To overcome the ever-growing threat landscape, the partnership between Bulwark and Holm Security will offer enhanced system & network vulnerability scanning to customers across Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Iraq, Jordan, Egypt and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
As a result of this new partnership, businesses in the region will be given the ability to uncover, monitor and control vulnerabilities across their entire business infrastructure which will help them prevent against the sort of high-profile attacks that saw major oil giants held to ransom for tens of millions of dollars in exchange for data.
Holm Security’s Next-Gen Vulnerability Management Platform automatically scans for an ever-increasing number of vulnerabilities, with continuous vulnerability and policy scans across local and public networks that can be customized based on user requirements. Assets can then be effectively organized, tracked, and analyzed based on which reflect the most significant risks to operations. With this threat intelligence, organizations understand where to prioritize their efforts in cyber security.
Headquartered in Dubai, Bulwark is the leading provider of IT security products in the Middle East. Providing innovations from more than 25 vendors and with over 750 partners, the organization aims to bring the best security solutions and technologies to businesses found across the region. As a value-added distributor, Bulwark will provide Holm Security’s Next-Gen Vulnerability Management Platform to Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) and other organizations to identify and mitigate vulnerabilities within their networks.
As a result of this partnership, Bulwark can now offer extensive training, managed services, and check-ups from Holm Security to further enhance a customer’s cyber security profile. For more information on how the product can help your organization, visit the Holm Security website.
