The opportunity

Information security is changing at a rapidly accelerating rate. In today’s world of ’always on’ technology and not enough security awareness on the part of users, cyber-attacks are no longer a matter of “if” but “when.”  With the understanding that attacks can never be fully prevented, companies should advance their detection capabilities so they can respond appropriately.

MENA DSOC is a 24x7 cyber security monitoring service. It provides the capabilities of a traditional SOC as well as helping organizations address cyber vulnerabilities arising from emerging digital technologies.

What we do for our clients?
