RiskIQ Middle East business grows 132% YoY

RiskIQ, the leader in Attack Surface Management, announced additional investment in its Middle East operations. Fueled by revenue growth across the region of 132% in 2020, RiskIQ recently relocated Henry Staveley, Regional Sales Director to Dubai and is currently undertaking additional recruitment activity.

In late 2019 RiskIQ partnered with the value-added-distributor CyberKnight Technologies, and together they quadrupled the number of RiskIQ resellers across the region in 2020.

“You can’t protect what you can’t see! That is why we partnered with RiskIQ. The platform enables enterprise and government customers to truly understand their attack surface. This is critical because when an attacker targets an organization, they will look for any possible opening. Without understanding what they can see, security teams will not be aware of the potential vulnerabilities that can be compromised and become attack vectors.”, said Avinash Advani, Founder and CEO of CyberKnight. “With the investments being made in the region by RiskIQ, we have already observed accelerated market penetration in H1 2021 and expect rapid customer acquisition, as well as revenue growth in due course.”

Commenting on the regional expansion, Fabian Libeau, RiskIQ’s VP and General Manager of EMEA, said, “While the Middle East has been a successful market for RiskIQ over several years, digital transformation initiatives, Covid-19, and the increased activity of threat actors across the region have made our solutions more relevant than ever. With these additional resource investments, we look forward to helping a growing number of Middle East organizations proactively defend themselves against cyber threats and threat actor groups.”
