According to Symantec’s Internet Security Threat report, Saudi Arabia is the most “impacted” country in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region in terms of ransomware and with the emerging cyber threats, the need to get secured is ever-growing. Organisations of all sizes, in all industries are struggling to secure their most critical assets.
Martin Sutherland, CEO of BT Al Saudia, said: “Being one of the top managed services providers in the Kingdom for nearly 30 years, we understand the challenges and pain-points of customers here.
