Protecting distributed assets on-prem and in the cloud from cyber-attacks, as well as, conforming to new regulations, requires a new approach to security using open, software defined frameworks, across networks and security domains. To address challenges related to security for private, hybrid and public cloud datacenters in the Middle East, security VAD CyberKnight has partnered with a leading provider in this space, Arista Networks.


Arista Networks provides IT security operations teams with cognitive cloud networking control and visibility that encompasses secure segmentation, secure connectivity, a cognitive management plane, security monitoring and traffic analysis. Arista's EOS software automates the insertion of security services with the CloudVision Macro-Segmentation Service (MSS) for both physical and virtualised workloads anywhere on the network with a leading ecosystem of service and security partners.


"We are excited about this new partnership with Arista Networks, as their modern approach to advanced datacenter security provides customers the ability to reduce operational costs, while mitigating threats in the emerging cloud era, through dynamic network segmentation. With Arista also being a pioneer in out-of-band security monitoring and traffic analysis, we will strive to equip customers in the Middle East with relevant tools to allow scanning of vulnerabilities and early detection of attack patterns in sensitive cloud, as well as, on-premise datacenters environments", commented Ehab Derbas, VP Sales at CyberKnight.
