Dubai-based CyberKnight Technologies, the cybersecurity-focused value-added-distributor (VAD), has partnered with Owl Cyber Defense, the UK-based leading provider of hardware-enforced security solutions for military, intelligence and critical infrastructure organizations.

Globally, critical infrastructure providers are being the target of cyberattacks that significantly interrupt utilities and services, cause equipment damage, or even worse. Unfortunately, these firms have numerous outdated and vulnerable systems, and the limited downtime makes patch windows rare. CyberKnight has enlisted the help of Owl Cyber Defense to solve these issues in the Middle East.

“As we build out our operational technology (OT) and critical infrastructure portfolio, we are excited about this new partnership with Owl Cyber Defense, as no other vendor matches their cross-domain and data diode capabilities. The technology is accredited by the U.S. Government and EAL Certified, offering enterprise-ready solutions to regional customers, with a focus on solving today’s network security problems, in the most challenging environments.”

CyberKnight’s AI-driven Zero Trust Security (ZTX) framework incorporates emerging and market-leading cybersecurity solutions that protect the entire attack surface, eliminating security gaps while enabling digital transformation with intelligent security for complex hybrid environments that protect user data across devices and applications no matter their location.

“Owl Cyber Defense is committed to increasing our investment and presence in the Middle East. With our expanded office and staff in the region, we are dedicated to working with local experts like CyberKnight to best serve our customers throughout the region,” said Mr. Ken Walker, CEO and President of Owl Cyber Defense.

Owl Cyber Defense’s cross-domain solutions play a critical role in CyberKnight’s Zero Trust architecture, providing hardware-enforced segmentation supported by extensive filtering that extends from low-level transport protocols up through the application layer.
