Injazat and Thales have announced that they are working together to offer cyber security services to protect companies in the UAE.
The services offerings will deliver Thales's solutions from Injazat's Tiers IV ISO 27001 certified data centre in Abu Dhabi. The partnership will leverage Thales's experience in areas such as security audits and security consulting, development and integration of cyber security solutions and security services for large enterprises.
"Every day the world grows more dependent on the Internet; nations now rely heavily on IT infrastructure to operate and support their financial markets, transportation networks, energy grids and public agencies to protect the health and security of their citizens. While this growth opens up a lot of opportunities, it also brings accompanying risks," said Ibrahim Lari, CEO, Injazat Data Systems.
"The Internet is an evolving technology that carries both enormous potential and vulnerabilities. Cyber security operation centres are thus becoming essential in providing enhanced defensive capabilities to address all forms of risks, threats and attacks. Through our work with Thales, we aim to deliver advanced and innovative cyber security solutions from a world-class Cybersecurity Operation Centre that is ready to face a constantly evolving global threat landscape," added Lari.
Marc Darmon, Thales executive vice president - Secure Communications and Information Systems, said: "Thales and Injazat provide an operational answer to the cybersecurity challenges in the Region. We believe that the proactive approach of Thales in cybersecurity combined with the highly reliable infrastructure of Injazat will provide our customers with high security and an added value in their risk management by supplying a situational awareness of their threats."
