Development Authority (CDA).
The UAE telco, a subsidiary of Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (EITC), will provide CDA with continuous monitoring, threat detection and response, and managed web applications firewalls.
The CDA is responsible for setting up and developing a framework for social development in the UAE. The Authority’s director general Ahmed Abdul Karim Mohammed Julfar said, “Organisations on a path to digital innovation need a proven set of security tools and procedures to combat the ever-growing threat of cyberattacks. Through the new agreement, we have entrusted du to help us protect business operation continuity and protecting critical data by increasing security visibility, lowering risks and proactively managing security incidents.”
du combines consulting, infrastructure and SOC services to provide a comprehensive security solution for enterprise. Osman Sultan, CEO, EITC, said: “While embracing the UAE’s digital transformation, companies are growing their online presence, adopting open IT infrastructures and consequently increasing their exposure to cyber threats. Therefore, ensuring business continuity and data protection rely more and more on the ability to quickly detect security incidents and mitigate threats to avoid any impact on operations. We are pleased to partner with the Community Development Authority to develop an efficient security framework to benefit all consumers.”
