UAE-based EDGE, one of the world’s leading advanced technology and defence groups, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Kryptus, a Brazilian multinational provider of highly customizable, reliable and secure encryption, cybersecurity and cyber defence solutions. 

The signing took place EDGE’s expansive stand during the leading Latin American Defense and Security Exhibition, LAAD 2023.

Under the terms of the MoU, EDGE and Kryptus will collaborate to enhance cyber capabilities and collectively pursue strategic opportunities in the advanced technology and defence markets.

EDGE was founded to be a catalyst for change and transformation, developing agile, bold and disruptive solutions that go beyond defense.

The company is dedicated to bringing breakthrough innovations, products, and services to market with greater speed and efficiency, positioning the UAE as a leading global hub for future industries, and creating clear paths within the sector for the next generation of highly-skilled talent to thrive.

EDGE consolidates more than 20 entities into four core clusters and they are Platforms & Systems, Missiles & Weapons, Electronic Warfare & Cyber Technologies, and Trading & Mission Support.

In March, EDGE Group has acquired the UAE-based TRUST International Group, a defense trading specialist and a major supplier of premium solutions to the UAE Armed Forces and security establishments.

Recently, EDGE announced that it will open a new regional office in Brazil’s federal capital, Brasilia. The new office, which will be managed by a dedicated and experienced team of professionals from within the defense industry and local business ecosystems, is scheduled to open shortly.
