Building cyber defence capabilities in Bahrain and Kuwait took a significant step closer with an agreement signed between Injazat, the UAE’s home-grown technology champion in Digital Transformation, cloud, and cybersecurity and Kalaam Telecom, an Internet service provider (ISP) and managed digital solution provider in the region for digital transformation.
In the signed memorandum of understanding (MoU) agreed between the two companies, they have announced their commitment to collaborate on exploring opportunities towards building a customised Cyber Fusion Centre (CFC) in Bahrain and Kuwait and provide cybersecurity services to government and semi-government entities, leveraging both parties’ assets, know-how and capabilities.
The MoU was signed by Ussama Dahabiyeh, Chief Executive Officer, Injazat and Veer Passi, CEO, Kalaam Telecom, during the GITEX Technology Week 2021.
Under the agreement, both companies will specifically evaluate the framework to develop high level business plans towards establishing state-of-the-art Cyber Fusion Centres that will significantly bolster the security posture for Kalaam’s client portfolio in both Bahrain and Kuwait. Modelled after Injazat’s very own Cyber Fusion Centre, the platform co-created in collaboration with Kalaam will adopt an intelligence-driven, collaborative, and automated security approach much needed for countering advanced security threats.
Dahabiyeh said: “Our expertise and capability through Injazat’s Cyber Fusion Centre stands alone in the MENA region. Our approach consolidates traditional security functions with new capabilities into a single, integrated entity. Through the agreement signed with Kalaam Telecom, we are delighted to explore the opportunity to collaborate on providing our knowledge and expertise to develop and deploy next-generation cyber capabilities and solutions in Bahrain and Kuwait. Partnerships such as this are part of our strategic approach at Injazat, especially cross border industry partnerships, which are extremely vital in growing the region’s digital economy, accelerating innovation, and supporting an entrepreneurial ecosystem. We eagerly look forward to seeing the results of this partnership being implemented to create a superior integrated defence platform in Bahrain and Kuwait.”
Passi said: “Weare excited in partnering with Injazat, which will enhance cybersecurity solution capabilities for our customers. With Injazat’s proactive Cyber Fusion Centre capabilities, this partnership will aim to offer strong solutions to protect organisations from the rapidly growing cyberattacks and data breach threats evolving in the Internet driven market. Kalaam continues to strengthen its partner ecosystem to offer one-stop digital solutions that meets the demand of enterprises, international carriers, governments and SMEs within the region, with its highly innovative product lines, including: managed networks, IoT, AI, cloud, cybersecurity solutions and data centre services.”
Injazat launched the region’s first ever Cyber Fusion Centre (CFC) in June 2020 to boost protection against data breaches and cyber-attacks.Click below to share this article
