Cyber Observer partners with Spire Solutions to provide continuous controls monitoring across the Middle East and Africa

Comprehensive risk posture management and unified visibility of security tool effectiveness on-prem and in the cloud

Dubai, UAE / Caesarea, Israel – August 4, 2021: Cyber Observer, the premier Continuous Controls Monitoring (CCM) platform, announced a new exclusive partnership with Spire Solutions, Middle East and Africa’s leading value-added distributor, to provide comprehensive risk posture management, on-prem and in the cloud to new and existing customers in the region.

Cyber Observer enables CISOs and other security and risk management executives to obtain new, continuous, unified visibility into the effectiveness of cybersecurity tools that are implemented throughout their enterprise. By continuously retrieving and analyzing Critical Security Controls (CSCs) from applications on-premises and in-cloud, Cyber Observer’s CCM platform simplifies compliance, reduces mean time to detection and response, and advances cybersecurity posture management.

Cybersecurity teams are overwhelmed with the complexity of managing dozens of disparate security tools that have been implemented across their hybrid enterprises. Despite best efforts to implement security controls to minimize threats and risks, enterprise executives are discovering that misconfigured or malfunctioning tools are too often a blind spot and one of the weakest links in their security defenses. Cyber Observer’s CCM platform eliminates this problem and now enables enterprises to keep a finger on the pulse of how their security tools are performing.

Cyber Observer connects and pulls data from an enterprise’s on-premises and in-cloud tools to create a comprehensive view of the security tools implemented. In addition to continuously analyzing more than 6,250 CSCs and providing controls status in the context of management, compliance requirements, and other frameworks, Cyber Observer released a set of new features, including:

  • Real-time dashboards: Easily demonstrate the status of each tool, status of the different security areas, prioritize vulnerabilities, aggregate risk posture scoring, and alert on deviation from normal behavior.
  • Continuous reporting: Cyber Observer’s reporting module automates reports on an organization’s cybersecurity tools status and cyber posture views.
  • Open API enhancements: Enable enterprises to easily share data collected by Cyber Observer with third-party tools that provide security information and event management (SIEM), automation (SOAR), and artificial intelligence.

“Managing cybersecurity requires more than implementing security tools and checking the box,” said Shimon Becker, Cyber Observer Co-founder, and VP Product. “It requires continuous monitoring, management, and oversight to ensure that people, processes, and technology are in fact protecting your data and your enterprise. We are pleased to partner with Spire Solutions to help and provide end-to-end cybersecurity visibility so that customers can easily and better manage their organizational security posture.”

Muhammad Rehan, Business Unit Head for Security, Cloud and Infrastructure Management at Spire Solutions, said “Several governments and enterprises in our region are increasing their investments into cybersecurity tools and technologies. However, ensuring hygiene, measuring the effectiveness of these tools, and having end-to-end visibility can be challenging. Our partnership with Cyber Observer offers a quick and easy solution to our customers and help them stay a few steps ahead of threats on-premises and in-cloud.”
