Dubai, UAE, United Arab Emirates, 2015/02/09 - The new global center analyses seven billion security events every day in order to stop cyber criminals and malicious insiders, thus safeguarding enterprises in the region.
Paladion Networks, the global specialist in Information Risk Management and Middle East’s leading managed security services player with marquee customers across banking, oil & gas, telecom and retail announced today the opening of their new Global Security Operations Center (GSOC), which is designed to provide clients from the Middle East region with the highest level of round-the-clock protection and services.
Paladion expanded its GSOC hub with a new state-of-the-art facility in Bengaluru, India and linked the GSOC with existing regional Security Operations Centers (SOCs). Regional SOCs are currently located in Kuala Lumpur, Mumbai, Hanoi, Toronto and Herndon, and new centers are being setup in Doha, Dubai and Riyadh to provide a more robust local support. The existing SOC network provides real-time analysis of seven billion security events every day. This capacity would nearly triple with the new analytics powered GSOC expansion, taking the number of information security professionals to 400. The move improves Paladion’s capabilities in global threat analysis, inter SOC collaboration, local response and compliance. All the SOCs are powered by Paladion Network’s unique security analytics & operations management platform, RisqVU.
Firosh Ummer, the Managing Director for EMEA at Paladion Networks, said,“Our GSOC initiative is equipped to analyse billions of events every day and protect hundreds of its customers regionally and globally from cyber risk. Apart from the Middle East and Asia regions, Paladion is also steadily growing its managed SOC business in North America and Europe. The GSOC network will help us expand and help new customers worldwide, while providing enhanced protection for existing ones.”
Amit Roy, the regional Sales head for EMEA, said,“In the last couple of years, Middle East has seen a significant increase in region specific malware attacks as well as other global, malicious cyber threats. Paladion being the region’s only analytics driven Managed Security Services can leverage both its regional insight and global expertise to make proactive security monitoring and rapid incident management a reality. This makes our offering a one-of-a-kind service in this region, and sets a new benchmark for information security providers everywhere.”
