To deliver threat detection and response services to Qatar Smart Program ‘TASMU’, a key cyber-security partnership has been announced by Atos and Doha-based telco Ooredoo.
The initiative will ultimately support the Qatar National Vision 2030 and will be driven by the Ministry of Transport and Communication (MOTC).
TASMU, which aims to improve the way of life of citizens, residents and visitors of Qatar, is the first smart city project in the Middle East. Atos and Ooredoo’s solution integrates next-generation Artificial Intelligence (AI) capability from the Atos Alsaac platform and cyber-security based on cloud-native intelligent security analytics to secure TASMU’s infrastructure and applications.
Sheikh Nasser Bin Hamad Bin Nasser Al Thani, Chief Commercial Officer, Ooredoo, said, “We are proud to be working with Atos to play such a pivotal role in enabling the digital transformation of Qatar through TASMU. As a leading telecommunications operator, with innovation firmly at the heart of our strategy, we are committed to providing our knowledge and expertise to our country with the overall ambition to achieve the goals of Qatar National Vision 2030. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with our esteemed partners”.
To help the Ministry and its ecosystem of partners that will provide smart city services to collect, orchestrate and secure data, Atos, as Ooredoo’s cyber-security partner in Qatar, builds on its strong expertise in cyber-security and leadership position in delivering capabilities for Smart Cities.
Atos, under the partnership will provide its Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service powered by its AIsaac platform for multi-vector threat detection, auto-containment and incident response orchestration.
The MDR service will be delivered from state-of-the-art Atos Security Operations Center (SOC), ensuring strong data sovereignty for ‘TASMU’. With Atos’ solution, the Ministry of Transport and Communication will be able to protectively hunt, monitor, contain, and respond to threats 24/7, with the best industry-based security practices.
“TASMU showcases the integration of Atos AIsaac and cutting-edge partner technologies in cyber analytics for the first smart city project in the Middle-East region and brings advanced threat hunting, orchestration, and remediation capabilities to Qatar. This powerful combination has laid down strong foundations for Atos and Ooredoo’s partnership and joint business in the region. It has also given us an edge over the competition to enable us to serve our customers better”, said Marc Veelenturf, Head of the Middle-East and Head of Telecom, Media & Technology for Growing Markets, Atos.
