Cyber security firm Paladion has launched what it says is an AI-driven security operations centre (SOC) in Dubai.

Organisations continue to face more threat data than they can process and only an AI-driven cyber defence can combat this growing volume of threat data and next generation attacks.

“Our region faces a severe cyber security skills shortage, and limited resources to defend against escalating attacks; our AI-Driven SOCs addresses this gap,” said Amit Roy, EVP & Regional Head –EMEA at Paladion. “The UAE government’s vision to be the city of the future with the early and right of adoption of artificial intelligence requires an equally robust and quick adoption of AI-Driven Cyber Defences. Paladion’s AI-driven SOC brings this advanced, critical cyber security capabilities for the Middle East to help enterprises tackle today’s sophisticated and creative cyber-attacks,” he added.

Paladion’s AI-driven SOC—also known as the Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Command Centre—plugs the regional SOC to their Global Security Operations Centre, providing the Middle East with advanced, up-to-date protection from global treats. The MDR Command Centre deploys Paladion’s own AI platform—AI.saac—to provide advanced, agile defence to regional enterprises.

By accelerating threat detection, Paladion’s AI-Driven SOC also speeds up incident response times for organisations within the Middle East. Their AI platform automates many steps of incident remediation, and orchestrates a streamlined, comprehensive response – sometimes in coordination with the customer if it is required. Paladion’s AI-Driven Service has demonstrated capabilities in decreasing attacker dwell time and faster incident response. Once an organisation’s threat is remediated, Paladion also provides a full map of that attack, and produces advanced learnings that can proactively evolve an affected organization’s defences.

The service is available as part of Paladion’s AI-driven MDR Service or ‘Left of Hack, Right of Hack’ offering.

Sunil Gupta, chief operating officer at Paladion explained that the company has already switched to AI-driven SOCs for all of its customers, located around the world. “Most of our legacy MSSP customers in the Middle East have already been transitioned to our AI-Driven MDR service over the last two years. With Dubai’s own AI-driven SOC, Paladion gives the region a unified, comprehensive security program capable of defending organizations at every stage of an attack. Like all our regional SOCs, the Dubai SOC is seamlessly connected to our Global Security Operations Centre to ensure there is a mix of regional and global thinking when combatting today’s advanced cyber threats.”
