Abu Dhabi-based TIP’s weapon Testing and Qualification Center (TIP TQC), through its Cyber Security lab, Watheq, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with CPX Holding, a leading provider of digital-first cybersecurity solutions and services, to bring together their highly specialized capabilities in the field of cyber security.

Both home-grown companies seek to provide clients with a comprehensive range of services encompassing all levels of cyber security. The MoU was signed by Mr. Khaled Al Melhi, CEO of CPX Holding, and Eng. Faiz Saleh Al Nahdi, CEO of TIP, at the International Exhibition of National Security and Resilience (ISNR) in Abu Dhabi.

The partnership considers the UAE’s current landscape, in which technology is becoming a part and parcel of not only critical infrastructure but the business landscape in general. The two parties will enhance cyber security by jointly delivering a comprehensive set of skills and services to customers under a single service provider format.

CPX and Watheq will bring together their cyber security testing and validation activities across software, hardware, and telecommunication.

The need of the hour is to remain resilient while enhancing the security of the technology landscape for business in the country.”

Mr. Al Melhi noted that “By incorporating testing and validation into cyber security, organizations can build more secure systems that are reliable enough to use throughout the entire organization. At CPX, our role as a value-added partner demands that we continuously find new ways to develop and deliver top-of-the-line, resilient end-to-end cyber security solutions and services.”
