Ooredoo yesterday announced that it saw â€œstrong successâ€ during a conference on best practices in protecting Qatarâ€™s large enterprises and critical national infrastructure from rapidly evolving cyber-attacks.
Ooredoo, as Qatarâ€™s leading provider of managed security solutions, highlighted the latest trends and figures in cyber-defence.
â€œAs a managed security services provider, Ooredooâ€™s business customers are running the information security solutions offered through our secure Qatar Data Centre,â€ the company said in a statement.
Delegates focused on the evolving Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, which flood the edge of network infrastructure.
DDoS attacks are taking down mission-critical websites and business-critical applications, email services, and voice services.
Ooredoo and Netscout Arbor highlighted best practices in preventing DDoS attacks with the Availability Protection System.
Ooredoo COO Yousuf Abdulla al-Kubaisi said, â€œOoredoo is dedicated to protecting the information security of our customers and Qatar. At the cyber-defence conference, we exchanged best practices with our business customers in the cybersecurity strategies, solutions, and corporate culture to defend against cybercrime, reduce risk, and comply with the respective regulations.â€
Showing the damaging impact of cyber-attacks, cyber-crime will cost the world $6tn annually by 2021, according to a recent report by research firm Cybersecurity Ventures.
Faysal Heneidi, country manager â€“ Enterprise Business, Netscout Arbor, said: â€œQatarâ€™s enterprises understand the urgency of deploying state-of-the-art cybersecurity solutions to enhance their competitiveness and customer trust. By combining Netscout Arborâ€™s DDoS mitigation solutions with Ooredooâ€™s vision and reach, executives learned about the current and future threat landscape and how best to minimise threats.â€
Business customers can leverage the Ooredoo advantage, making Ooredoo â€œBest for Businessâ€, thanks to its breadth and depth of talent, best fixed and mobile networks, broadest portfolio of ICT services and solutions, and trusted partner for 60 years.
