In accordance with recent industry report by Research and Markets, the Saudi cyber security market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 12.4% during 2020-2026. While proliferation of digitalization has opened new gateways for cyberattacks, securing cyberspace is a fundamental element for Saudi Arabia’s 2030 Vision.
To address the growing cybercrime challenges, as well as, support the Kingdom’s 2030 Vision, CyberKnight has established its legal entity in Riyadh with deployment of local sales and technical resources on-the-ground. This investment is to enable strategic partners to serve their customers better, achieve improved profitability and accelerated growth through in-country logistics, order processing and local-invoicing.
“While KSA has a robust economy with some of the region’s biggest organizations, a strategic geographic location, and technological advancements like cloud, 5G, and IoT, the country remains a prime target for hackers. Thus, protecting sensitive data is of paramount importance to organizations and consumers alike. Our office in Riyadh aims to offer best-
of-breed cybersecurity solutions and services that comply with the Government’s national security requirements”, commented Ehab Derbas, VP of Sales at CyberKnight.
“The core tenets of Vision 2030 encompass the need for job creation and supporting the private sector. Our legal entity in Riyadh allows us to hire and nurture local talent faster, and therefore, contribute to the overall economic growth of the Kingdom. In addition, we are excited to support our channel partners on-the-ground, by providing them with relevant operational and financial support locally”, said Wael Jaber, VP of Technology & Services at CyberKnight.
