Doha, Qatar

Ooredoo’s Business division held a one-day joint event with key cyber-security global partners – Akamai, Recorded Future, VMware, Zscaler – to highlight the major challenges facing the sector and to demonstrate the managed security products and services needed to respond effectively and efficiently.

Billed as a great opportunity to meet with Cybersecurity experts and hear of new possibilities for innovation, the event focussed strongly on privacy and data security while exploring the changing threat landscape in Qatar and internationally.

The agenda for the event – commencing with introductions from Ooredoo’s Hassan Al Emadi, Senior Director Business Accounts, and Mariam Al Khal, Senior Director ICT Product Development – showcased each Ooredoo partner’s core initiatives and associated products and services. These ranged from Zscaler’s Zero Trust Platform and Akamai’s Application & API Security Protector to VMware Carbon Black Application Control & EDR and Recorded Future’s Actionable Threat Intelligence.

Mariam Al Khal – Senior Director ICT Product Development at Ooredoo – said: “Like Ooredoo Managed Security Services, our close work with our four esteemed partners shows how far the sector has developed to confront the increasingly diverse and sophisticated range of threats facing government and business from multiple malign actors. This essential collaboration demonstrates the vitality and ingenuity of those standing up for cyber security, at a time when the eyes of the world are turning to Qatar.”

The event was staged at the Sheraton Grand Doha Resort & Convention Hotel on 24 August 2022 and was attended by industry experts from all enterprise segments.
