Cyber security centre launched
A 24/7 intelligence-driven security operation center to tackle cyber threats have been launched in the Kingdom. The new NGN security operation center (SOC) powered by Group-IB enables the local government, private companies, and financial organisations to get expert assistance in proactive monitoring, detection, and prevention of any cyber attacks at early stages for better defence of their internal networks.
A launch event was held with the participation of government officials, C-level executives from Bahraini leading banks, and journalists. “We are delighted to bring the first intelligence-driven 24/7 NGN SOC powered by Group-IB, based on Group-IB’s cybersecurity solutions to Bahraini government and private companies,” stated CEO of NGN International, Yaqoob Al Awadhi. “Banks and government organizations are the driving force of Kingdom’s economic successes and the backbones of its national stability. Its cyber vigilance is vital with the accelerating pace of Bahrain’s digital transformation.
“The opening of NGN SOC powered by Group-IB comes at a time when we are witnessing an increased threat actors’ activity in the region and frequent data leaks and compromise of personal financial information,” he added.
While traditional SOCs use signature-based detection methods, which allow to only deal with known threats, the new intelligence-driven NGN SOC powered by Group-IB allows to know what to expect and makes it possible to prepare for attacks in advance thanks to actionable threat intelligence.
