DarkMatter highlights achievements at RSA
DarkMatter's growth reflects the requirement for the development of more sophisticated cyber security solutions
DarkMatter is marking one year since it began communicating and showcasing its expertise to the public with its presence at the RSA Conference Abu Dhabi 2016.
Over the last 12 months the firm has seen its staff numbers increase tenfold to over 500, with its geographic presence expanding to markets including Canada, Belarus, Finland and China. Its growth mirrors the requirement for the development of sophisticated cyber security solutions as the modern threat landscape continues to evolve and expand.
DarkMatter has also been dedicated to supporting its clients in the development of cyber resilience solutions aimed at safeguarding their highly-prized digital information and environments.
Faisal Al Bannai, DarkMatter founder and chief executive officer said, "We believe we are at the intersection of the correct time, correct geography, and correct outlook to be able to effect real change in cyber security. Throughout the course of the last 12 months we have said the security approach for the IT sector is outdated and vulnerable in light of digital transformation. As such, as a society we need to recalibrate our approach and implementation of cyber security within digital environments in order to sustain our modern way of life."
Major developments at DarkMatter during the course of the last 12 months include, the development and delivery of a secure communications application used by governments; the extension of the firm's already formidable service portfolio to include a blockchain software development kit, big data and analytics, test and validation labs, and Cyber Resilience Platform; and the selection of DarkMatter as one of only 30 companies included from over 2,200 around the world to participate in the Dubai Future Accelerators initiative.
As part of DarkMatter's participation at the RSA Conference, Faisal Al Bannai briefed media and reiterated the firm's commitment to innovation. He also emphasised DarkMatter's desire to continue to attract tier-one talent from across the globe.
