ODP SOC pro­vides Man­aged Se­cu­rity Ser­vices in Oman

Times of Oman - - ROUND-UP -

MUSCAT: Stay­ing ahead of rapidly evolv­ing se­cu­rity threats is chal­leng­ing from a cost, ex­per­tise and ef­fi­ciency per­spec­tive. Oman Data Park’s (ODP) Man­aged Se­cu­rity Ser­vices (MSS) is the pioneer Se­cu­rity Oper­a­tion Cen­tre (SOC) in Oman that pro­vides real time pro­tec­tion, de­tec­tion and re­sponse.

It helps pro­tect busi­nesses and data through mul­ti­lay­ered se­cu­rity and com­pre­hen­sive com­pli­ance pack­ages and is backed by com­plete man­age­ment, mon­i­tor­ing and sup­port. The com­pany has de­signed its se­cu­rity op­er­a­tions cen­tre to proac­tively iden­tify where po­ten­tial se­cu­rity threats & vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties may ex­ist.

While most se­cu­rity tech­nolo­gies play a de­fen­sive role and are re­ac­tive in na­ture, ODP’s MSS em­pow­ers or­gan­i­sa­tions to be more proac­tive in how they pro­tect against, de­tect and re­spond to threats. The en­hanced se­cu­rity pack­age de­liv­ers ad­vanced se­cu­rity mon­i­tor­ing, threat de­tec­tion and in­ci­dent re­sponse ser­vices to help or­gan­i­sa­tions im­prove their cy­ber­se­cu­rity pos­ture as they con­tinue their dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion ef­forts. In ad­di­tion, ODP’s se­cu­rity oper­a­tion cen­tre is op­er­a­tional 24X7 and sup­ports more than 300 clients in Oman.

One of the re­cent MSS that ODP of­fers is DMARC (Do­main­based Mes­sage Au­then­ti­ca­tion, Re­port­ing & Con­for­mance). Many com­pa­nies are un­aware when emails are sent on their be­half and such phish­ing ac­tiv­ity by phish­ers could harm a com­pany’s rep­u­ta­tion. DMARC helps gain in­sight into these sources and can, there­fore, pro­tect do­mains from phish­ing/abuse.

Another se­cu­rity ser­vice trend is the Anti-Phish­ing & Fake Mo­bile Ap­pli­ca­tion Mon­i­tor­ing and Re­moval Ser­vice, de­signed to pro­vide best-in-class mon­i­tor­ing and at­tack mit­i­ga­tion for a range of the web and mo­bile fraud re­lated at­tacks in­clud­ing phish­ing, pharm­ing, web site de­face­ment, and DNS at­tacks. Its en­hance­ments en­able or­gan­i­sa­tions to mon­i­tor so­cial me­dia feeds, do­main reg­is­tra­tions and mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tions for ad­vanced brand in­tel­li­gence, live web site con­nec­tion mon­i­tor­ing, do­main reg­is­tra­tion mon­i­tor­ing, global DNS mon­i­tor­ing and mal­ware col­lec­tion and anal­y­sis.

“Fac­ing an in­creas­ingly hos­tile threat land­scape, busi­nesses of all sizes are strug­gling to en­sure the se­cu­rity of their sen­si­tive data and tech­nol­ogy in­vest­ments. These chal­lenges are driv­ing many or­gan­i­sa­tions to seek out se­cu­rity ser­vice providers that have the tech­ni­cal ex­per­tise and ad­vanced se­cu­rity of­fer­ings that can meet their unique busi­ness re­quire­ments. Oman Data Park’s new MSS Pro­gramme re­in­forces our on­go­ing in­vest­ments and con­tin­ued ded­i­ca­tion to the suc­cess of our MSSP part­ners and the se­cu­rity of their cus­tomers,” said Maitham Al Lawati, gen­eral man­ager - Risk & Com­pli­ance. “Our com­bi­na­tion of tech­ni­cal ex­per­tise and deep ac­cess to the un­der­ly­ing tech­nolo­gies en­sure that our MSS plat­forms meet the unique needs of each cus­tomer and de­liver lead­ing se­cu­rity ser­vices to pro­tect to­day’s de­mand­ing busi­ness en­vi­ron­ment.”
