Abstract Security Expands its Global Footprint, Welcomes Regional Leader

Investment in the MENA region demonstrates commitment for local channel ecosystem, a first regional foothold with future expansion plans to follow

ABU DHABI, UAE, April 23, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Abstract Security, crafted by category creators who have consistently redefined the cybersecurity landscape, today announced the opening of its first Middle East office, to be led by Abdulaziz Koujan, Middle East and North Africa regional sales leader.

Abstract Security

Based in Riyadh, Koujan is a seasoned and trusted leader, having worked in the region for over 18 years and formally leading the Saudi Arabian business for Anomali and Intel471. In his role, Koujan will work closely with channel partners and lead sales across the Middle East and North Africa.

“Our move into the Middle East and North Africa is a strategic step towards our global commitment to enhancing cybersecurity resilience,” said Colby DeRodeff, CEO and cofounder of Abstract Security. “It’s an opportunity to introduce our robust, analytics-driven cybersecurity solutions to a market experiencing rapid digital transformation. We’re poised to make a substantial impact on how businesses in the region safeguard their digital assets.”

Current SIEM detection is largely ineffective, and for most organizations, security analytics have been reduced to saved searches and dashboards, without the power of correlation. Koujan’s strong background in SIEM helps him understand these challenges deeply, and the fundamental change that Abstract can bring with AI-driven Security Operations Center (SOC) automations. Joining with local channel partners, Koujan will help ensure Abstract’s advanced cybersecurity technologies are accessible to organizations across the region, ultimately helping them become more effective at detecting and mitigating threats.

“Abdulaziz Koujan’s addition as our MENA regional sales leader is pivotal,” said Richard Betts, Vice President of International at Abstract Security. “His deep regional insight will be invaluable as we align our market-leading solutions with the unique needs and challenges faced by businesses in the Middle East and North Africa.”
