The Pentera platform increases MBC’s security validation capacity 10x across its IT Infrastructure

Dubai, March 14, 2023Pentera, the leader in automated security validation, today announced its partnership with MBC GROUP, the largest and leading media company in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, to pre-empt ransomware attacks and ensure continuous enterprise-wide security validation.

MBC’s team were actively searching for a solution to continuously validate the effectiveness of their existing security stack, and supplement their penetration testing program. Since integrating the Pentera platform, MBC has been able to increase its security validation frequency 10x across its enterprise IT infrastructure, enabling it to test its security resiliency against real-world attacks and shorten the time to vulnerability discovery and mitigation. Pentera’s detailed reports are also used to benchmark MBC’s security over time and better communicate security priorities within the organization.

“As a global organization, it is essential for us to have an accurate assessment of our organizational resiliency against real cyber-attacks,” said Aus Alzubaidi, Director of IT and Media Management at MBC GROUP. “Utilizing the Pentera platform has improved our ability to validate our security as well as prioritize our remediation processes. These capabilities have already proved extremely valuable and will become more crucial as our networks continue to expand and evolve.”

“With the complexity of cybersecurity growing every day, organizations around the world need solutions that not only protect them, but also help them simplify the process. The value of automated security validation cannot be overstated as companies shift from merely managing vulnerabilities to actually managing their cyber exposure,” said Morgan Jay, SVP Sales, EMEA & APAC at Pentera. “We’re proud to work alongside an industry leader like MBC who are leading the charge and adopting new paradigms for security.”
