SecurityGen expands in Middle East, Aligns with Digital Growth

Cybersecurity provider SecurityGen is expanding its operations in the Middle East to support the region's accelerated growth of 5G and digital transformation initiatives. With the rapid growth of 5G and initiatives like Saudi Vision 2030, there is a significant need for secure high-speed broadband networks in the Middle East. Cities in the region are utilizing 5G for IoT-based applications like 'Smart City' initiatives, and operators need to ensure network security to capitalize on these opportunities.

5G is expanding quicker than any other mobile generation in history. However, this increases the risk of cyberattacks against operators and their consumers. By 2025, there will be approximately 50 million 5G connections in the MENA region, with approximately 20 million in the GCC Arab States. By 2025, the GCC Arab States will be marginally ahead of the global average in terms of 5G adoption, with 16 percent (5G as a percentage of total mobile connections) versus 15 percent globally.

Amit Nath, Co-founder and CEO at SecurityGen, stated,

The Middle East represents potential for significant growth in 5G over the next few years. As the region expands culturally and economically via digital transformation projects along with ambitious initiatives like Saudi Arabia's Saudi Vision 2030, the spotlight is on the telecom operators and how they deliver secure high-speed broadband to communities in the areas beyond the reach of wireline networks.

SecurityGen will bolster its presence in the Middle East by enhancing its delivery capabilities and senior leadership. This expansion aims to cater to the growing adoption of 5G and IoT-based projects in the region, helping telecom operators secure their networks from cyber threats. SecurityGen's new Managing Director for the Middle East & Africa, Imad Ayad, with over 20 years of experience in telecom and tech, will drive growth and strengthen partnerships with operators and enterprises in the region.

Nath added that their appointment of Imad Ayad as the new Managing Director for Middle East & Africa at SecurityGen aimed to facilitate further growth throughout the region. Ayad possesses more than two decades of experience in leading roles within the telecommunications and technology sectors, including significant positions at Nokia, Alfa Telecommunications, Enghouse Networks, and Tranglo. Nath also emphasized that Ayad's specialized background in Value-Added Services (VAS) and SMS security, combined with SecurityGen's extensive expertise and established security solutions, positioned them as an ideal partner for operators expanding their 5G operations in the region, with a primary focus on cybersecurity.
