Leonardo and Abu Dhabi-based IGG (International Golden Group PJSC) have signed a strategic collaboration agreement to supply cyber security capabilities in the UAE during the on-going IDEX exhibition.
Leonardo and IGG will collaborate to identify and implement advanced solutions including Security Operations Centres (SOCs). The agreement’s aim is to integrate the solutions and the market knowledge offered by IGG, which will be the local prime contractor and which already provides high-level security to national customers, with Leonardo’s know-how, in a long-term strategic and international partnership, the company said in a statement Monday.
Recently, the United Arab Emirates underlined cyber security as a key factor in the country’s development, with the aim of identifying prestigious partners with which to develop cutting-edge solutions and infrastructures.
This will permit customers to prevent, identify and oppose sophisticated and persistent cyber threats, safeguarding the most delicate assets of an organisation: data and information.
