LogRhythm Strengthens Commitment To Cybersecurity In Saudi Arabia

LogRhythm has launched its new regional headquarters (HQ) for India, the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa (IMETA) in Riyadh strengthens its existing on-the-ground support for local customers, enabling them to effectively bolster their cybersecurity postures. 

LogRhythm currently serves many complex environments across all verticals in the KSA, with an established base of those operating in government and public sectors. Its expanded presence in the region aligns with the Saudi Vision 2030 initiative to achieve a resilient, secure, and trusted Saudi cyberspace that enables growth and prosperity. LogRhythm’s increased local support provides its existing and prospective customers with dedicated cybersecurity tools and expertise to detect, investigate, and respond to evolving threats.  

“The Kingdom has one of the fastest growing economies in the world and a rapidly developing IT sector, and this is attracting more tech companies to make the move into the region. With huge digital growth comes rising demand for cybersecurity as threat actors look to exploit this innovation,” said Mazen Adnan Dohaji, Vice President & General Manager IMETA, LogRhythm. “Our expanded presence in KSA enables more locally based organizations to bolster their cybersecurity posture in an increasingly interconnected world. It is fantastic to witness LogRhythm’s growth in the Middle East first-hand and we look forward to closely supporting more of our customers.” 

LogRhythm’s reporting capabilities and compliance use cases make it simple and efficient to comply with the KSA’s Essential Cybersecurity Controls (ECC), further supporting Saudi Vision 2030. It enables organizations of all kinds to use one-click, out-of-the box automation to meet the minimum cybersecurity requirements for information and technology assets operating within the KSA. 

“We’ve already established strong momentum in the Middle East, serving customers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia since 2017. The launch of our new regional HQ for IMETA is a huge milestone for us as we make world-class cybersecurity solutions even easier to adopt in local markets,” said Dohaji. “The Kingdom is proactively ramping up its cybersecurity posture, and this is reflected in its Saudi Vision 2030 strategic framework. Our mission is to make compliance and threat mitigation as streamlined as possible to support this upcoming initiative.” 

This news coincides with LogRhythm’s attendance at Black Hat Middle East and Africa (MEA), a leading cybersecurity conference and exhibition that took place in Riyadh, KSA. The event is a major capacity-building platform, bringing elite level infosec professionals to the region to help ensure the goals of Vision 2030.
