ESET Middle East, has signed a new partnership with Credence Security, a leading regional distributor of specialised solutions for cybersecurity, digital forensics and GRC.

Earlier in September, ESET entered into a distribution partnership with the UAE based leading value added distributor, Scope Middle East to distribute the wide range of ESET cybersecurity products and solution across the region.

According to ESET Middle East, the partnership with Credence Security will open doors to new opportunities and allow larger reach of their solutions to customers across the region. Credence Security’s complimentary portfolio and their technical expertise combined with extensive channel network and strong regional customer base will help further strengthen ESET’s stronghold and market dominance in the endpoint security space.

Demes Strouthos, General Manager, ESET Middle East said: “ESET is the #1 endpoint security provider in the EU and we believe that constant, real-time, multi-layered protection is required to assure the highest level of security. We provide high levels of protection, backed by over 30 years of research, which allows us to stay ahead of malware and by constantly evolving our technologies, we go beyond the use of standard, static signatures. Our unique combination of endpoint-based and cloud-augmented technologies provide the most advanced security on the market.

“This partnership with Credence Security will act as a value-add for ESET Middle East which will not only involve distribution through their extensive channel network but also extend to other areas such as technical competency and marketing to be perfectly responsive and ready for market needs and channel requirements.”

Given some of the industry-specific vulnerabilities and risks across financial services, healthcare and utilities sectors that need to be bridged with the surge in Covid-19 related scams, Credence Security will work with the ESET local team and existing partners to address these security gaps with the ESET Busines Product Suite.

“Credence Security is constantly looking for partners in the cybersecurity space that have best-in-breed technology. We recently signed a partnership with ESET for Southern Africa, so this is a natural expansion of our partnership as we look to bring best-of-breed technologies to our partners and customers across the Middle East,” commented Garreth Scott, managing director, Credence Security.

“Furthermore, EDR is a growing market in the region — we are seeing an increase in demand from our customers for an EDR solution and as a leader in this space, ESET helps address this gap in our portfolio. Finally, given that their portfolio caters to organisations from the SME sector, all the way to the enterprise, it fits nicely with our go-to-market strategy for the region.”

Meanwhile, ESET along with Scope Middle East will provide sales and technical training to its channel partners to ensure that its channel is abreast with latest technologies and solutions, thereby, enhancing their competitive edge in the market to explore new opportunities.

Commenting on the Scope partnership, Strouthos said “Scope Middle East with its extensive channel relationships and growing customer base, particularly in the SMB and enterprise market will represent an excellent opportunity to showcase ESET’s endpoint security, cloud sandboxing, threat intelligence and other cybersecurity solutions to its partners and customers.”
