National Bank of Bahrain deploys region’s first virtual cyber fusion centre

The group selected Cyware for its advanced cyber fusion technology


MANAMA: The National Bank of Bahrain Group (NBB Group) announced it has deployed the first Virtual Cyber Fusion Centre (vCFC) in the region.

The group selected Cyware for its advanced cyber fusion technology that offers threat intelligence sharing, incident response, and security automation and orchestration (SOAR) capabilities over an integrated, modular, and virtual platform.

Parts of the deployment of the vCFC has moved to Amazon Web Services (AWS) data centres in Bahrain in line with the cloud adoption strategy of the Government of Bahrain.

Through the deployment, the group enabled itself with cyber threat intelligence feeds to all its assets using Cyware Threat Intelligence eXchange (CTIX).

This shift brings advanced capabilities for multi-source threat intelligence ingestion, enrichment, and analysis, and allows NBB Group to significantly bolster its security posture as compared to the traditional SOC model of security deployed by similar organisations.

“The NBB Group is proud to be partnering with Cyware. It is our responsibility to keep our assets and customers safe from cyber-attacks. By bringing in Cyware’s cyber fusion centre, the group is adopting an intel-driven, collaborative, and automated security approach much needed for countering advanced security threats,” said Razi Amin, NBB’s group chief information officer.
