Dragos today announced an accelerated expansion in the United Arab Emirates to provide organizations in the region with more direct access to its industrial cybersecurity technology and services so they can respond more quickly to threats, while also developing and training ICS/OT cybersecurity talent to ensure worldwide customer success. The expansion includes a new office in Dubai, which has a planned opening in Q1 2022.
The expansion aligns with the UAE’s cybersecurity strategy established by the Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority. Dragos addresses the burgeoning global market for ICS/OT cybersecurity solutions and meets the cybersecurity needs of critical infrastructure organizations in all regions and of any size or complexity.
Within the UAE, Dragos is already protecting the industrial environments of a number of companies, enabling them to maintain comprehensive asset visibility, assess OT-specific threats and vulnerabilities, and respond to threats based on the latest threat intelligence. Their use of Dragos allows them to minimise risk to plant operations and improve security, while also meeting regulatory compliance requirements.
“Many industrial organizations in the UAE are leading the way with digital transformation and recognizing that ICS/OT cybersecurity is more critical than ever in a hyperconnected world,” said Robert M. Lee, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Dragos, Inc. “We are excited to make ICS/OT cybersecurity expertise and technology more accessible to organizations in the UAE as well as to partner with organizations and local ICS/OT cybersecurity practitioner communities here to help grow a needed pool of talented cybersecurity practitioners.”
