Why Illumio is accelerating growth in the MEA region
Illumio entered the MEA market in 2022 by establishing a regional team, building on its partnership with distributor CyberKnight. The MEA region is an exciting market for cybersecurity due to its ambitious digital transformation efforts. The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries are investing heavily in technology to diversify their economies and lead the fourth industrial revolution.
Like all regions worldwide, the Middle East and Africa faces growing cybersecurity threats. Ransomware attacks are on the rise, particularly in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). MEA businesses need strong cybersecurity foundations, starting with a Zero Trust approach.
Zero Trust, which has become a global standard for securing IT environments, is gaining traction in the Middle East as a strategy to reduce ransomware threats. Zero Trust Segmentation (ZTS) is an integral part of any Zero Trust strategy — you can’t achieve Zero Trust without ZTS.
ZTS stops the spread of breaches and ransomware attacks by isolating and containing them at the initial entry point. It's been proven to reduce risk, decrease costs, and accelerate innovation, making it a critical component for organizations in the region.
The GCC's ambition to become a global leader in cybersecurity aligns with Illumio's mission to prevent catastrophic breaches. To strengthen cyber resilience, Middle Eastern and African businesses must:
See and understand their security risk
Minimize unnecessary access
Implement a Zero Trust security strategy starting with Zero Trust Segmentation
Are You Getting the Most Out of Your Zero Trust Strategy?
Digital transformation in the last few years has dramatically expanded the attack surface. To cope with the move to remote work and increasing migration to the cloud, many IT environments have shifted from on-premises to hybrid, hyper-connected networks.
