Cybersecurity monitoring and management services company Cysiv, which specializes in SOC (Security Operations Center)-as-a-Service, has opened a sales office in Dubai to extend business operations into the Middle East and Africa (MEA). The company says it is making significant investments to help fuel its growth in the region.
In 2020, Cysiv acquired and re-branded SecureMisr, a Cairo-based provider of managed SOC and related security services, to accelerate its investment in the region. Cysiv, which was incubated within global cybersecurity major Trend Micro, was spun out as an independent company and publicly launched in 2018.
Cysiv MEA has expanded its offerings to include SOC-as-a-Service delivered from its global network of SOCs, including its newest one in Cairo. Additionally, Cysiv’s global center of excellence for software development has established a regional presence in Cairo.
These investments are being made because of the rapid global growth in demand for managed detection and response (MDR) services and the need for cybersecurity talent worldwide. It serves organizations in the banking, telecom, energy, and other commercial sectors, as well as the public sector.
