Pentera, a leading automated security validation provider, has partnered with MBC GROUP, the largest media company in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, to proactively defend against ransomware attacks and maintain continuous enterprise-wide security validation.
According to MBC, they were searching for a solution to verify the effectiveness of their existing security stack and supplement their penetration testing program when they found Pentera. Since incorporating the Pentera platform, MBC has increased its security validation frequency by tenfold across its enterprise IT infrastructure. This has allowed them to test their security resilience against real-world attacks and reduce the time it takes to discover and mitigate vulnerabilities. MBC also uses Pentera’s detailed reports to monitor its security posture over time and communicate security priorities within the organization.
Aus Alzubaidi, Director of IT and Media Management at MBC GROUP, said, “As a global organization, it is essential for us to have an accurate assessment of our organizational resiliency against real cyber-attacks. Utilizing the Pentera platform has improved our ability to validate our security as well as prioritize our remediation processes. These capabilities have already proved extremely valuable and will become more crucial as our networks continue to expand and evolve”.
Morgan Jay, SVP Sales, EMEA & APAC at Pentera, highlighted the importance of automated security validation for companies that are managing their cyber exposure rather than just vulnerabilities. He also commended MBC for being at the forefront of adopting new security paradigms, saying, “We’re proud to work alongside an industry leader like MBC who are leading the charge and adopting new paradigms for security”.
