Leading regional cloud communication solutions provider, CEQUENS, has announced its participation in the highly anticipated IDC Saudi Arabia CIO Summit 2022.

Stepping up as Summit Partners, CEQUENS will be on-site to host a talk to discuss the role of simple, secure verification and its ability to boost business deployment and positively impact end-user adoption to achieve increased business success.

Delivering the talk will be Abdulaziz Alkahtani, CEQUENS Head of Enterprise Sales, who commented on his upcoming participation by sharing, “I am delighted to be attending this year’s CIO Summit in Saudi Arabia and to be part of the digital revolution happening in the Kingdom. Beyond being proud partners of this year’s event, I look forward to taking the stage this year to discuss how CEQUENS is helping organizations around the region create a better customer experience with simple yet secure authentication.”

Now, more than ever, businesses need to capitalize on the usage of identity verification services to authenticate new and existing customers in compliance with anti-fraud regulations, yet the customer journey needs to be simple, quick, and hassle-free. “Finding the right balance between seamless authentication and CX can be tricky, which is why I am particularly excited to share more about our SaaS suite for user authentication,” continued Alkahtani.

The 2022 edition, which will be hosted on September 19 and 20, 2022, at the Fairmont Hotel in Riyadh, aims to explore Saudi Arabia’s digital revolution, technology landscape, and current strategies for digital transformation.
“We look forward to seeing everyone at the event and to taking part in what promises to be a very fruitful discussion,” Alkahtani concluded.
