Smokescreen partners with Spire Solutions to reimagine cyber-threat detection in the Middle East

The Cybersecurity community in MEA has had limited options to choose from in deception technology. Smokescreen brings cutting-edge threat detection solutions with regionally relevant enhancements and local threat intelligence.
BOSTON - Aug. 4, 2020 - PRLog -- Smokescreen Inc., a Gartner recognised cyber-deception technology provider for SCADA / IoT, and banking threats has entered into an exclusive partnership with Spire Solutions, a regional leader in innovative cyber-defence solutions, to bring the latest release of its active defence platform to the Middle East & Africa (MEA) region.

Speaking about the partnership, Sahir Hidayatullah, CEO and co-founder of Smokescreen said, "Smokescreen's red-team heritage in banking and operational technology threats uniquely positions us to help customers think about their defenses the way attackers do. The Cybersecurity community in MEA has had limited options to choose from in deception technology so far hence we worked closely with some of them over the last year to develop regionally relevant enhancements and local threat intelligence. Given Spire's stellar record of successfully introducing innovation in the region, we are proud to engage them to help develop our business in the region."

Also speaking on the occasion, Mr. Sanjeev Walia, Founder & President, Spire Solutions said, "Since 2008, Spire has witnessed MEA's changing threat landscape and has been supporting CISOs in enhancing their security postures and mitigating risks. Our partnership with deception leader Smokescreen allows us to help customers think about their defenses and gaps the way attackers do. From showing different tactics, techniques and procedures used to break into their environment, to discovering and highlighting if there are already any unidentified adversaries, we are confident of helping CISOs take their cybersecurity game to a whole new level."
