UAE helps firms to accelerate digital transformation journey – Gulf Today

Moro Hub, a subsidiary of Digital Dewa, the digital arm of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa), on Tuesday signed a Managed Service Provider (MSP) agreement with Trend Micro, a global leader in cybersecurity solutions. This will enable Moro Hub to provide cloud workload protection services to its customers and accelerate their digital transformation journey.

The agreement was signed between Marwan Bin Haidar, Vice Chairman and Group CEO of Digital DEWA, and Majd Sinan, Country Manager of Trend Micro UAE.

Bin Haidar commented, “Our cooperation with Trend Micro will enable Moro Hub to provide customers with the best locally hosted, unified security management services that accelerate compliance and secure workloads hosted in hybrid and multi-cloud environments.”

He added that the alliance will be of particular importance as several organisations have been challenged by the increasingly complex and rapidly changing tactics of savvy cyber adversaries in the last few years due to the digital influx.

“The new service will empower Moro Hub customers with top-of-the-line security and offer them compliance tools to safeguard new and existing cloud resources. This will help us to offer innovative and competitive digital technologies in the region, which is in line with Dubai 10X and UAE Centennial 2071,” Bin Haidar explained.

Sinan, in turn, stated, “We see unprecedented migration to cloud environments, many of them multi-cloud. This partnership ensures organisations can secure workloads and guarantee compliance so that enterprises can grow their business without worrying about security issues. Together with Moro Hub, we shall protect the UAE’s enterprises as they build more competitive business operations in the cloud.”  Moro Hub (Data Hub Integrated Solutions), a subsidiary of Digital Dewa, the digital arm of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa), has signed a Global Service Provider Agreement with Cisco AppDynamics last week. The partnership will provide Moro Hub with a unique opportunity to be the first and only Managed Services Provider for AppDynamics in the MEA region.

This will provide Moro Hub customers with access to the Cisco AppDynamics Business Observability platform to monitor application and user performance. It also allows them to have in-depth real-time visibility into end-user transactions, network, and SaaS media platforms, while enhancing application security, through Moro Hub’s cloud platform, its data centres, and cloud hosting services.

The agreement was signed by and between Marwan Bin Haidar, Vice Chairman and Group CEO of Digital DEWA and Shukri Eid, Managing Director, Cisco Gulf Region.

“The agreement supports our efforts to make Moro a digital transformation hub in the region which is aligned with the vision and directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to enhance the UAE’s position as a global destination for digital technology. Being the first and only Managed Services Provider for Cisco AppDynamics in the MEA region, with a local data centre in the UAE is a token on our commitment to develop the technology infrastructure, provide state-of-the-art data centres and upscale digital solutions to help customers make informed decisions”, said Eng.
