AHAD Partners with YesWeHack

Published

on

AHAD has announced its partnership with YesWeHack, Europe’s leading Bug Bounty and Vulnerability Disclosure Policy (VDP) platform. Ongoing cyberattacks raise the stakes for organisations to quickly detect and respond to threats across their entire IT ecosystems, identify and remediate risks, and close gaps in their security postures.

At the same time, few organisations have the in-house resources and expertise to manage their security programs effectively. YesWeHack offers organisations a unique approach to cyber-defence. Its Bug Bounty platform provides customers with a virtual pool of more than 35,000 ethical hackers across 170 countries. This community of experts can be mobilised to search vulnerabilities in websites, mobile apps, and IT infrastructure and report their findings through a secure workflow.

Organisations can either privately select the ethical hackers with the skills that best fit their use case or publicly submit their scopes to the entire YesWeHack community. YesWeHack also offers a tried-and-tested VDP (Vulnerability Disclosure Policy) fully managed service, which is a safe and transparent framework for anyone to report vulnerabilities. VDP is part of ISO29147 and ISO30111 and is encouraged as a best practice by international bodies such as NIST, ENISA, CISA, and OECD.

Commenting on the partnership with AHAD, Rabih Achkar, YesWeHack’s Regional Director for the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa, said, “We are delighted to partner with AHAD as they are a focused cyber security partner with a motivated and experienced team. With AHAD, we hope to take our Bug Bounty and VDP platform to a wider enterprise’s audience at a much faster pace.” Highlighting the fast-expanding bug bounty market worldwide, Rabih Achkar added, “Bug bounty is a common practice in the USA, but now the same model is gaining traction globally, and it will become the norm in the META region.”

Rohan Daniel Nair, Chief Operating Officer of AHAD, said, “In a business age where every company, big or small, relies on the internet to operate, none are exempt from a potential attack. To stay ahead of attackers and tackle tomorrow’s cybersecurity challenges, enterprises need to ensure the right protection is in place. With a bug bounty program in place, organisations have access to several thousand ethical hackers who can detect application and infrastructure vulnerabilities and send real-time updates.”

“With adequate security from bug bounty and VDP programs, organisations can showcase themselves to prospective businesses as trusted enterprises. In doing so, companies can move forward, knowing their security keeps them safe while helping them thrive,” added Ankit Satsangi, Chief Technology Officer at AHAD.

Truly Secure Partners With Edify

Published

on

Truly Secure has announced its partnership with Edify; the immersive learning platform for higher education and enterprise training. The partnership aims to ensure availability and data security for Edify’s users. Edify utilizes the metaverse to level up skills training and learning outcomes through limitless access to richly immersive educational experiences. With the demand for cyber security at an all-time high, and more specifically with the educational sector facing the most attacks, the partnership is in line with Truly Secure’s aim to consistently increase security for businesses within the region and beyond. 

Truly Secure will ensure Edify’s software and content development team as well as end-users of the platform remain protected from potential data breaches, reinforcing confidence within the sector. Truly Secure’s vast experience in handling digital transformation through cyber security, modern workplace, and cloud services will enable Edify to grow and reach a global user base in a safe and sustainable manner. 

The partnership between Truly Secure and Edify came into fruition shortly after witnessing the increasing demand for technology within the education sector. The growing trend for students to access educational content with the click of a button from anywhere in the world has accelerated the need for innovative security solutions. 

Truly Secure offers strategy, data center, cloud services, cybersecurity, and DevOps to build modern workplaces, ensuring companies are provided with the optimal technological solutions. Mitchell Mobayed, the Co-Founder of Truly Secure, comments, “We look forward to further developing our partnership with Edify to provide the company with peace of mind about their IT infrastructure. This will enable Edify to focus their energy on offering learners around the world the opportunity to further their education through the use of technology.”

Edify empowers future-ready learning and skills training through boundaryless access to immersive content, experiences, and collaboration. Edify’s platform works across devices and geographies. Learners can access immersive content in-person and remotely, with or without access to VR hardware. According to The Century Foundation, “science provides important critical thinking and problem-solving skills that students need in today’s world; the typical cost of a science lab that would accommodate 24 students is approximately $323,000, and many schools simply can’t afford it.”

Edify is able to play a huge role in providing students with access to educational opportunities that might otherwise be out of reach. Chris Bryson, the Co-Founder & COO, comments, “We welcome Truly Secure’s partnership in supporting our growth and look forward to having them by our side as technology advances, and risks arise. We understand the importance of IT security and trust our partnership will alleviate any risks we may encounter.”

The partnership will also lead to immersive training content for cybersecurity made available on the Edify platform.
