The collaboration will bring the power of automated microsegmentation and advanced ZTNA to the Middle East, enabling true Zero Trust network security.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 12 June 2023 – Evanssion, a leading value-added distributor specializing in Cybersecurity and cloud-native security solutions across the Middle East, is pleased to announce a new distribution partnership with Zero Networks. This strategic partnership will bring Zero Networks’ innovative cloud-based network security approach to enterprises in the region, delivering on the promise of a zero-trust network architecture.

According to a recent report titled ‘The State of Microsegmentation in Network Security,’ which surveyed 100 cybersecurity leaders, the findings indicate that a significant majority (88%) of these leaders consider microsegmentation as a crucial element for achieving Zero Trust network security. Additionally, an overwhelming 92% of the surveyed leaders believed that microsegmentation is a more practical and efficient approach than alternative methods.

However, despite the recognized benefits, microsegmentation deployments have been stalled due to complexity, lack of expertise, and high expense. Zero Network’s approach to microsegmentation uses automation coupled with MFA to help make a Zero Trust architecture a fast and easy reality.

According to Gartner’s Market Guide on Zero Trust Network Access (2022), at least 70% of new remote access deployments will be served mainly by ZTNA instead of VPN services by 2025—up from less than 10% at the end of 2021.

Evanssion will offer the Zero Networks unified security suite that combines microsegmentation with ZTNA. Zero Networks Segment™️ takes microsegmentation to the next level with full automation and no more agents, providing a one-stop shop for client segmentation, server segmentation, the segmentation of communications from clients to servers, and most importantly no more manual rule creation.

Zero Networks Connect™️ combines the best aspects of VPN and ZTNA and eliminates their flaws with a unique connectivity service inside the organization that is hidden from the internet and connected to MFA-based segmentation. With this approach, only approved devices that pass a valid MFA process can see the connectivity port to improve performance and user experience.

“Our partnership with Zero Networks is aimed at bringing their network security suite to address the microsegmentation and ZTNA challenge across the Middle East market,” said Navneeth Ramanan, Assistant Vice President – Sales, at Evanssion. “Their commitment to delivering a true zero-trust network architecture aligns perfectly with our mission to provide cutting-edge cybersecurity solutions to our customers. This partnership will enable enterprises to proactively defend against evolving threats and enhance their overall security posture.”

“We are thrilled to join forces with Evanssion and leverage their deep regional expertise to expand our presence in the Middle East,” said Dan Fishel, Vice President of Business Development and Head of Channel at Zero Networks. “Together, we can empower organizations to implement robust network security measures and embrace a zero-trust architecture, delivering superior protection against emerging cyber threats.”
