Israeli Firms Present at Saudi Arabia’s Cyber Security Conference
Despite claiming refusal to normalize ties with “Israel”, Saudi Arabia hosted Israeli firms such as Sentinel, Imbreva, Palo Alto, and Cyber-Ark at its Cyber security Conference.
The Israeli website 'Israel' Defense reported that the @Hack conference kicked off in Riyadh on November 28, with Israeli companies taking part.
The Israeli website stressed that the conference represents a cornerstone showcasing cutting-edge developments in information and server security which tops Saudi Vision 2030.
The three-day conference brought together major cyber security companies such as Kaspersky, IBM, Cisco, Microsoft, Google, and IBM, according to the website.
To no one's surprise, the conference has brashly been a platform for Israeli companies such as Sentinel, Imbreva, Palo Alto, and Cyber-Ark.
Saudi Arabia has pushed to sharpen the double-edged tools of cyber-espionage, despite global concerns that the Kingdom was deploying Israeli spyware techniques to spy on individuals at home and abroad.
For many years, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and other human rights groups have reported Saudi Arabia’s suspicious spyware activities.
