Kaspersky launches services in KSA through SCCC Alibaba Cloud


Kaspersky has unveiled its Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service in Saudi Arabia through the public cloud service provided by Saudi Cloud Computing Company (SCCC Alibaba Cloud). This is in compliance with data sovereignty and privacy guidelines which is a key pillar of the Saudi National Cybersecurity Strategy.

Closely aligning with Saudi Vision 2030, this collaboration also magnifies SCCC Alibaba Cloud’s goal to provide an opportunity to organizations in the Kingdom to strengthen their cybersecurity posture by adopting advanced solutions and services. In parallel, by delivering on the promise of a secure and sovereign public cloud service, SCCC Alibaba Cloud further enables Kaspersky to overcome concerns of data privacy and storage.

“Saudi Arabia is a growing economic powerhouse of the Middle East. Since growth attracts malicious intent, we are proud to introduce organizations in the Kingdom to Kaspersky’s Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service in collaboration with SCCC Alibaba Cloud. This service allows organizations to deploy Kaspersky experts for threat hunting and investigation, and simultaneously offers the flexibility every organization and industry needs to safeguard their assets at all levels. Most importantly, MDR bridges the cybersecurity skills gaps prevalent in large, medium and small organizations and equips them with the right knowledge and insights. Making Kaspersky’s MDR available to the Kingdom reinforces our commitment to enable and empower organizations for swift response to innovative, unknown and evolving threats,” said Mohamad Hashem, General Manager, Saudi Arabia & Bahrain, Kaspersky.

Emphasizing on the collaboration, Khalid Alashaikh, Chief Business Officer, SCCC Alibaba Cloud said, “This relationship will help and support organizations to step up their defenses. As the only hyperscale sovereign public cloud provider in the Kingdom, we are dedicated to delivering a secure, reliable, and scalable cloud platform that supports the diverse security needs of organizations. Most importantly, we will continue facilitating the availability and accessibility of global expertise and solutions in the region via our technology partner platforms and marketplace.”
Detecting and responding to sophisticated attacks requires specific expertise, and lack of resources can lead to untimely incident response. With Kaspersky’s MDR, organizations in the Kingdom will be able to leverage continuous AI-driven 24/7 protection while saving IT security teams’ resources for threat analysis, investigation and response.
