Help AG, the cybersecurity arm of e& enterprise (formerly known as Etisalat Digital), has announced a partnership with ExtraHop to provide customers in UAE and KSA with enhanced cybersecurity solutions. To mark their collaboration, Help AG and ExtraHop signed a Memorandum of Understanding at the 2022 edition of the Gulf Information Technology Exhibition (GITEX), the Middle East’s prominent technology and networking event held annually in Dubai.

This strategic partnership will help diversify Help AG’s current cybersecurity offering and strengthen its presence in the cloud-native security solutions market. Help AG customers will now be able to benefit from fully SaaS-based network monitoring as part of its Managed Security Services portfolio with the addition of the ExtraHop Reveal(x) 360 network detection and response (NDR) platform, a cloud-native solution for visibility, detection and response across hybrid, multicloud, containerised and IoT environments.

Commenting on the partnership, Stephan Berner, Chief Executive Officer at Help AG, said: “As more organisations expand their presence in the cloud and experience challenges in maintaining visibility, especially in the face of advanced persistent threats and increasing compliance requirements, NDR solutions have become crucial to achieving visibility, swift detection and intelligent response to threats and breaches.”

Fouad Tawk, Area Vice President for the Middle East, Turkey and North Africa at ExtraHop, said: “ExtraHop’s dynamic cyber defence solutions help enterprises stop breaches 84% faster with cloud-scale machine learning that delivers detection and response across cloud, hybrid and distributed environments. By combining our world-class solutions together with Help AG’s reach and expertise, we will help IT teams unify security telemetry across the network and endpoints, enhancing detection and response capabilities to stop advanced threats faster.”

In line with Help AG’s service-centric led approach, the service will cover a range of use cases across security, cloud and IoT operations including lateral movement detection, software supply chain attacks detection, unusual network activity detection, security hygiene enhancement, sensitive data monitoring, network forensics readiness and advanced threats hunting. It will ensure end-to-end cloud security through cloud native integrations with orchestration systems, EDR and SIEM, that will further increase the visibility of Help AG’s next-gen SOC.
