NetWitness, a US-based network security company, has partnered with cybersecurity-focused value-added-distributor (VAD) headquartered in Dubai, CyberKnight, to bring NetWitness’ leading extended detection and response (XDR) solutions to enterprises in the Middle East.

Together, NetWitness and CyberKnight will enable enterprise and government customers in the Middle East with fast detection and automatic response capabilities to combat today’s advanced cybersecurity threats.

The NetWitness Platform is an open XDR solution that enables security teams to detect, understand the full scope of a compromise, and automatically respond to security threats across modern IT infrastructures, accelerating threat detection and response. NetWitness delivers enhanced visibility across all capture points, including logs, network packets, net flow, endpoints, and computing platforms on-premise, in the cloud, or as a hybrid of the two.

The NetWitness Platform applies threat intelligence as well as user and entity behavior analytics to detect, prioritize, investigate threats, and automate responses, improving the effectiveness and efficiency of security strategies.
