DarkMatter and Symantec partner to provide cyber security solutions and services
Cyber security firm DarkMatter has announced it is joining forces with Symantec Corporation, to provide security solutions and services to help organisations to combat complex cyber threats.
DarkMatter will enable customers to leverage business opportunities, reduce costs and improve productivity combined with Symantec's security technologies. The partnership aims to help organisations benefit from the companies cyber security services, such as consultation in areas of information and threat protection; governance, risk and compliance; and threat intelligence and cyber security.
The relationship will provide customers in the UAE with an anytime, anywhere service and to educate organisations on the cyber industry regulatory and compliance laws.
DarkMatter chief executive officer, Faisal Al Bannai said, "DarkMatter and Symantec are collaborating to empower businesses and government agencies with strategic solutions that will help them transform their operations to reduce risk, cost, complexity as well as overcome compliance challenges."
He added: "DarkMatter has a compelling portfolio of cyber security solutions and we are enthusiastic about combining these with Symantec's leading technologies to better protect information in today's connected world."
Michael A, Brown, Symantec president and CEO commented: "This relationship with DarkMatter will deliver local enterprises an unmatched combination of technology, intelligence and expertise. In addition, DarkMatter's solution and domain expertise complements Symantec's know-how in offering customised technology solutions to end-users."
With security breaches increasing in the UAE and across the world, both companies believe they occur due to the lack of understanding by individuals when applying secure solutions to protect business assets and critical information, and even when leaving equipment and work devices exposed to cyber threats.
DarkMatter and Symantec aim to help organisations gain insight into threats and respond effectively to reduce the impact.
