The MSSP practice will enable NXN, formerly known as NexGen, to build on their smart city managed services by providing security monitoring, threat detection and analysis services for governments and enterprises in the GCC, particularly in the critical infrastructure sector.
“With the rising adoption of the internet of things (IoT) and the associated proliferation of connected devices, we are seeing cyber-criminals use these devices as an attack vector. With IoT at the heart of these Smart Cities, there is no doubt that having a robust cyber security infrastructure is going to be critical to the success of any Smart City project,” said Tarek Jundi, Managing Director, Middle East & Turkey, McAfee.
Today’s cyber-attack landscape requires a shift to platform solutions that address not only detection, but also protection.
NXN will leverage its Security Operations Center (SOC) to offer enterprises a full suite of customised security monitoring, threat detection and analysis solutions.
The services will be delivered through NXN's Security Operations Center (SOC). As it evolves and matures, the company plans on rolling out a more standard and generic cybersecurity offering that will cut horizontally across all market verticals.
