June 8, 2016 | By RetailME Bureau

Dubai-based managed hosting and cloud infrastructure services provider eHosting DataFort (eHDF) has announced the launch a Cyber Defence Centre (CDC) based in the UAE.

The Cyber Defense Centre will offer customers a portfolio of Managed Security Services (MSS) along with Remote Managed SIEM Services. The announcement was made at a seminar hosted along with Netcure and LogRhythm in Dubai.

Titled ‘Detect & Respond Quickly to High Impact Threats’, the seminar covered a range of topics and highlighted the most pressing issues connected to cyber security. The seminar discussed growing popularity of managed security services, which covers advanced threat protection, incident management and response, DDoS protection, endpoint security management etc. The importance of managed security services and how customers can benefit from end-to-end security lifecycle management was also outlined.

“Security threats are at an epidemic level. Volume Zero day threats have more than doubled in the last 12 months from 23 in 2014 to 54 in 2015,” says Jeff Ogden, managing director of the eHDF Cyber Defense Centre. “Targeted attacks aimed at customers have seen a 54% growth and the most important focus of the CDC is to deliver the highest levels of security. This will be delivered either within the Data Centre, on premise at the Customers site or in the Cloud.”

The seminar included talks on threat landscape, the role of managed security services in the modern day context and the importance of modernising threat detection and response. The seminar also saw LogRhythm conduct a demo on their SIEM solution.

“At a time when data breaches and hacking are on the rise, it is crucial for organisations to be prepared to combat these attacks. Today, it is imperative to implement cyber security processes that help companies efficiently respond in real-time to protect their critical data. We have always worked towards educating our customers about technology innovations that will help them grow their business. Seminars such as ‘Detect & Respond Quickly to High Impact Threats’ will help us spread the message on how organisations can prepare to secure their data. With the need for specialised skills required to tackle security issues, Managed Security Services can help curtail budgets. It will also have professionals look into the highly specialized areas of Information Security,” adds Yasser Zeineldin, CEO, eHosting DataFort.
