During GITEX Global 2021, Trend Micro presented DDA with a special award for its excellent contribution in championing to secure the Emirate’s digital transformation journey, in line with the Ajman vision.

The global pandemic brought daunting challenges to governments across the world in protecting their digital infrastructure from cyber-attacks. To remain ahead of the curve, DDA decided to reimagine its approach to security to not only protect but also enhance the digital experience of users and customers. After thorough evaluations and consultations on its network and data center protection, the entity partnered with Trend Micro to integrate a multilayered cybersecurity strategy to combat the modern-day threat landscape. DDA adopted solutions such as Trend Micro's Tipping Point Threat Protection System, Deep Discovery Inspector, and Deep Security Software to protect its infrastructure, workforce, and processes – thus elevating its entire cyber security posture.

Hamad Ibrahim Al Balushi, Manager of Network and Information Security at DDA, DDA. “With our continued efforts to pursue the Ajman vision, we strive to transform the Emirate into a modern and integrated city, and that calls on us to choose trusted partners that will protect our digital journey.

This partnership has accelerated DDA's digital strides and will continue to support our future efforts as we work towards achieving our vision.”
