Ingram Micro has signed a Middle East & Africa (MEA) distribution deal with cybersecurity outfit Forcepoint. Under the terms of the deal, Ingram Micro is authorised to distribute the complete Forcepoint offering in 23 countries across the MEA region including Afghanistan, Algeria, Bahrain, Cameroon, Egypt, Gabon, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mali, Malta, Morocco, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Tunisia, the UAE and Yemen.

Forcepoint offers human-centric security capabilities delivered through cloud, network and risk-adaptive security solutions that aim to empower enterprises and government agencies to accelerate their digital transformation and lower risk.

Marc Kassis director cybersecurity at Ingram Micro META region, said: “Ingram Micro has started a two-year cybersecurity initiative based on people, processes and technology, and we are very pleased to partner with Forcepoint to help drive this vision forward. Forcepoint’s human-centric approach fits perfectly into our strategy - especially at a time when security attacks are becoming increasingly more complex and sophisticated. With the Forcepoint agreement, we are reaching the front runner position as a VAD of cybersecurity solutions.”

Mahmoud-Samy Ibrahim, area VP for the emerging region at Forcepoint, said: “The dramatic changes in enterprise IT and critical infrastructure over the last five years necessitate a different approach to cybersecurity, because focusing solely on threats is a no-win scenario.”

“We believe companies must shift their focus to understanding behaviour, and dynamically adapting to risk in real time. We call this risk-adaptive protection. With risk-adaptive protection, policies can be continuously and uniquely applied to the individual, not just broad groups of users within the organisation thereby lowering risk while still enabling people to get their jobs done,” he added.
