Our ambition with partners like Microsoft is to create a security-aware culture that enables always-on protection, to ultimately establish a safe cyber security ecosystem
To enhance cyber security capabilities and mitigate unprecedented security risks in an increasingly digital economy, CXP Holding and Microsoft have signed a memorandum of understanding to collaborate in helping organisations across the UAE. The memorandum was signed during GITEX Global 2022 by Khaled Al Melhi, CEO of CPX, and Naim Yazbeck, General Manager of Microsoft UAE.
To serve the UAE market, both parties, together aim to establish joint practices and solutions built on Microsoft Security Technologies. To reduce their exposure to digital threats and increase opportunities to innovate, this will include sharing relevant information and resources while exploring go-to-market strategies that assist organisations in the enterprise and corporate space.
“At CPX we aim to help our customers collaborate in a safe and secure way and thrive in the UAE digital economy,” said Khaled Al Melhi, CEO of CPX. “We constantly aim to create awareness that organisations need more than reactive cyber security strategies. Our ambition with partners like Microsoft is to create a security-aware culture that enables always-on protection, to ultimately establish a safe cyber security ecosystem. We serve in a unique domain, for what we do today adds value to others’ future.”
“To accelerate digital innovation and drive economic growth, organisations need scalable, highly available, and resilient tech solutions that empower them to innovate at scale. Through it all, however, security needs to remain at the centre,” says Naim Yazbeck, General Manager of Microsoft UAE. “At Microsoft, we invest significantly to offer our customers trusted tools and solutions that bring security, compliance, identity and management together to address the most challenging threats facing the world today. Our partnership with CPX will play a pivotal role in enabling public and private businesses to innovate securely and strengthen the UAE’s digital economy.”
