Axon Technologies, a UAE-headquartered leading information security solutions provider, rewards the efforts of its team by giving employees the opportunity to further expand their knowledge with industry-specific certifications and improving their capacity in more senior roles as they learn new skills, helping customer organisations reduce their cyber risk and achieve their business vision.

“As cybercrime becomes increasingly sophisticated, businesses must assume that they will be breached at some point. Especially now that remote work is commonplace, with the plethora of sensitive information, it is vital for organisations to secure their data and assets online,” said Hadi Hosn, CEO at Axon Technologies.

“Akin to this, cybersecurity practitioners and providers must be several steps ahead of attackers to be able to deter them and effectively protect their customer’s business. A well-informed and cyber-literate workforce can ensure that any disruptions leave little to no impact on business flow.”

Continuous training is in Axon’s DNA to procure and retain a highly skilled and motivated workforce. Antoun Beyrouthy, the winner of the Axon Challenge Coin 2021 and Certified Information System Security Professional, has been promoted to Lead Cybersecurity Consultant as part of the Axon’s Strategy and Risk Consulting team.

Beyrouthy will now be responsible as the point person for Sales and a funnel for the rest of the consulting team – supporting prospect meetings, scoping, and proposal development. Antoun will also oversee the utilisation of the consulting team and support management with strategy, roadmap and vision initiatives around the consulting ecosystem.

Additionally, Firas Koussa, previously a SOC Analyst at Axon, achieved the OSCP and GMON certifications and is now a Penetration Tester as part of the Security Engineering and Architecture team.

Commenting on the achievements, Hadi Hosn commented: “Axon not only supports our team’s personal growth but professional satisfaction and progress too. Upskilling our current team not only helps us meet business needs but also strengthens the team’s capabilities as it equips them with a range of skills required to rise to new heights.

“Our team always has a pulse on new and emerging cybersecurity technologies, and every certification gained is a testament to their dedication and proactive efforts in keeping our customers safe from threats.”
