Nozomi Networks to Empower Organizations in Saudi Arabia with OT and IoT Cybersecurity


Nozomi Networks will be participating at Black Hat MEA in Riyadh from 15 – 17 November 2022 at the Riyadh Front Exhibition Center. Nozomi Networks will highlight how their OT and IoT security solutions can facilitate digital transformation and strengthen critical infrastructure, as well as protect industrial and government organizations from existing and emerging cyber threats. Following the success of @Hack, Black Hat MEA is set to welcome 30,000 visitors to Riyadh, making it the largest and one of the most crucial cybersecurity events to attend in the region.

Supported by the Saudi Federation for Cyber Security and Programming (SAFCSP), Black Hat MEA affirms the Kingdom’s investments and growth in cybersecurity and digital transformation. In line with this and the Saudi Vision 2030 strategic framework, Nozomi Networks will display its extensive portfolio of top security solutions and the benefits they provide to owners and operators of critical infrastructure, including its recently launched subscription-based Threat Intelligence Feed. The Nozomi Networks Threat Intelligence Feed can be used independently from their Guardian and Vantage platforms with third-party security platforms. Customers can leverage a single, unified feed of threat intelligence across other layers of their security stack, once they have subscribed.

“As the convergence of OT, IoT, and IT gains predominance the threat landscape is continuously evolving and attacks have become increasingly sophisticated post-pandemic,” notes Khalid Aljamed, Vice President – MEA West at Nozomi Networks. “We want to bolster Saudi Arabia’s National Cybersecurity Strategy (NCA) with our OT and IoT solutions; our participation at Black Hat MEA reiterates our commitment to the Kingdom’s 2030 Vision of building and maintaining a secure national infrastructure across all critical industries. Black Hat MEA opens the doors of opportunity for us to meet and engage with like-minded regional, as well as international, cybersecurity leaders.”

Aljamed continues, “Nozomi Networks has been actively investing in Saudi Arabia for some time, and we will continue to expand in the region by sourcing and enabling local professionals. We will also ensure to maintain strategic partnerships across vital sectors and align with the strategic goals and cybersecurity objectives of our valued customers, as well as the National Cybersecurity Authority (NCA) requirements and recommendations to safeguard the nation. At Black Hat, we will be announcing a few upcoming Managed Services Partnerships (MSP) in 2023, as well as strategic alliances with key entities across the Kingdom.”

Organizations are now more vulnerable than ever owing to the amount of sensitive and critical information that is shared online every day, and it is imperative they are mindful and proactive in securing their digital assets as part of their digital evolution.

“We are looking forward to having insightful and informative conversations with attendees to bring to their attention developing risks brought on by the rapid convergence of OT and IT systems in a world that is becoming more digital, and advise them on the best practices to protect their platforms,” concludes Aljamed.

Nozomi Networks will be participating alongside their partners, Starlink, Sirar (by STC) and IT Belt Company, hosting interactive demonstrations of their OT and IoT security solutions for potential customers.
