Qatar-based multinational telecom company Ooredoo will be offering its Ooredoo Managed Security Services (MSS) portfolio to businesses and other organizations in an attempt to protect them from cyber threats throughout the country.

Cyber threats are ever-evolving day by day and the region may be one of the targets of the attackers. So, the telecom leader is seeing an increasing demand for its services as companies can find it difficult to hire, employ, and maintain their cybersecurity teams.

Against this backdrop of rising cyber threats, Ooredoo is working in collaboration with internationally recognized cybersecurity providers helping businesses overcome new and sinister challenges. In response, among the key components of MSS, Ooredoo offers a Managed Security Operations Centre (SOC), Web Application Firewall, Managed Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation suite, and Cloud Web Security.

Ooredoo can deliver a variety of solutions and services through the SOC to keep the businesses of customers secure. Furthermore, it provides comprehensive security monitoring, a Managed Firewall, Malware Protection, Vulnerability Management, Cloud Web and Email Security, Web Application Firewall, and the DDoS mitigation suite.
