In order to mitigate mounting cybersecurity challenges in the Middle East, DarkMatter, based in the Unite Arab Emirates (UAE), recently partnered in the introduction of an advanced voice and chat application to facilitate a highly secure communication environment for government agencies and commercial entities in the region.
The application delivers secure voice and chat communications utilizing iOS and Android operating systems. It offers tap-proof capabilities, protecting the device from third-party attacks and ensuring that no backdoors are present.
While providing end-to-end secure communications, based on the latest advancements in cryptography and network protocols, the voice and chat application also features state-of-the-art back-end infrastructure to allow secure communications. It is currently deployed and has already attracted additional interest from parties in the region.
“The application was implemented in partnership with leading technology providers and highlights DarkMatter’s interest in collaborating with vetted, world-class solution developers to generate value-enhancing propositions,” Najwa Aaraj, vice president of special projects at DarkMatter, told Gulf News Journal. “This is aside from the proprietary solutions we deliver in our own right.”
DarkMatter is attempting to transform the cybersecurity landscape by providing a range of state-of-the-art services and solutions to government and commercial clients. The company specializes in cybersecurity and was founded in the UAE in 2014 with the express aim to safeguard the nation’s infrastructure from cyberthreats.
DarkMatter is helping commercial entities to mitigate the complex and fast-paced world of cyberthreats, and offers the entire spectrum of cybersecurity solutions, building up a world-class team of international cybersecurity experts based in the UAE.
“The fact that a cybersecurity specialist based in the Middle East region partnered with a technology and research firm based in Germany to deliver a security tested and hardened application is unique,” Aaraj said. “The voice and chat application is set to offer government entities and security-conscious businesses in the region and further afield the ability to deploy and utilize a word-class solution.”
DarkMatter is already a trusted partner to governments and is staffed by tier-one international cyber experts who develop, manage and deploy the most innovative technologies. These solutions adhere to the company’s Cyber Security Life-Cycle, which incorporates a four-stage approach involving planning, detection, protection and recovery.
“Our products are tailored for government agencies and enterprises that have the highest security requirements,” Aaraj said. “DarkMatter is targeting enterprises in a number of key industry sectors including financial services, telecom, public sector and energy given their rigorous requirements for secured communications and network infrastructure.”
DarkMatter believes demand for secure applications including its voice and chat offering will remain high given the growing number and sophistication of cybersecurity breaches across the Middle East and the rest of the world.
“We are doing things in a way that has never been done in this region before, and are excited about the prospects of our industry as we look to secure critical infrastructure and protect nations even more robustly over time,” Aaraj said.
