DarkMatter and vArmour announce strategic partnership

DarkMatter and vArmour, have announced a partnership arrangement to offer joint customers end-to-end cyber security solutions.

DarkMatter will enhance customer data centre and cloud security environments through its newly formed partnership with vArmour by offering best-of-breed data solutions that protect against cyber threats. DarkMatter will provide incident response services that incorporate advanced security analytics and automated cyber attack containment.

DarkMatter’s approach to increased cyber resiliency across its clients’ networks will draw on vArmour’s Distributed Security System (DSS) technology, which helps organisations gain application-layer visibility and control of their network, applications and users to prevent, detect and respond to cyber attacks and breaches in data centre and cloud environments.

In today’s increasingly digitised enterprise landscape, organisations across the Middle East are making critical decisions and driving processes based heavily on virtual and cloud-based IT environments.

Commenting on the partnership, Faisal Al Bannai, Chief Executive Officer of DarkMatter, said, “As enterprises migrate to the cloud, we look to identify technology partners with whom we can collaborate to help guide our clients when making critical decisions and executing cloud-driven processes. As a result of our partnership with vArmour, DarkMatter will be able to offer its clients best-in-class security in virtual and cloud-based environments.”

Looking ahead, the two companies will continue to invest in joint offerings to provide solutions around: 

·        Policy-based enhanced security screening/modules with advanced analytics tuned to the GCC market.

·        Unified security fabric delivering consistent security and segmentation for virtual workloads regardless of location across private clouds and public clouds.

·        Custom cyber security stacks that can be rapidly deployed to protect sensitive data through the security life-cycle from before, during and after an attack.

“vAmour continues to observe a paradigm shift in the way organisations invest, adopt and deploy operationally efficient technologies, like the cloud and hyper-converged infrastructures,” said Tim Eades, CEO, vArmour. “In working with leading global security providers like DarkMatter, our resulting partnership will bring forth best-of-breed segmentation and micro-segmentation technology, along with advanced security analytics to combat targeted attacks. As a result, joint clients will be able to dynamically and automatically respond to and contain threats across both public and private cloud environments.”
