OutThink partners with Spire Solutions to manage cybersecurity human risks in Middle East and Africa

July 29, 2021

Rapidly growing British cybersecurity company OutThink has announced an exclusive partnership with the Middle East & Africa’s value-added distributor, Spire Solutions, to introduce the world’s first cybersecurity human risk management solution to the region.

Governments and enterprises have started acknowledging that they need to quickly turn their weakest links in the cybersecurity chain, humans, into their strongest defence.

And that would require targeted and consistent training, testing and measuring so employees can identify, detect and respond appropriately to cyber threats.

OutThink’s computer-based security awareness training solution has the highest rating on Gartner Peer Insights given its uniqueness in providing a fun, gamified and social experience that improves both knowledge and engagement of enterprise users. The targeted learning dynamically adjusts to the audience, depending on risk profile, current level of understanding and role which leads to the emergence of productivity and drives efficiency.

“Cybersecurity risk from human error, negligence and insider threats is a significant concern in our region so we want to offer our customers access to awareness training that is highly interactive, localized (native Arabic, Sharia-compliant), relevant, customizable and highly effective. Our partnership with OutThink comes after an exhaustive technical assessment as we are very selective when choosing new cybersecurity vendors. Their modern platform is unique and unparalleled as it takes into account varying cultural and working practices to have maximum impact in driving behavioural & cultural change.” said Siddhartha Murthinty, Chief Solutions Architect and Head of Technologies at Spire Solutions.

Flavius Plesu, Co-Founder at OutThink, said “As a former CISO, I believe that security awareness must align employees’ attitudes and behaviours with the business and security goals of the organisation. Our next-generation security awareness platform empowers people to become the first line of defence to organisations. To be successful in any new market, it is key to align with local specialist partners who understand both our technology and the local customer needs. We are delighted to appoint Spire Solutions as our exclusive distributor in the MENA region.

OutThink is currently adopted by some of the world’s largest firms and is rapidly expanding its client base, wholly through its channel partners.
