DUBAI, UAE, April 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

DarkMatter, an international cyber security firm headquartered in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), today announced it is entering a partnership arrangement with Symantec Corporation, (NASDAQ: SYMC), a global leader in information protection and security software, to provide security solutions and services to help customers navigate the complex world of threats and cyber-crime.

DarkMatter will enable customers to leverage business opportunities, reduce costs and improve productivity through the combination of its industry expertise and Symantec's security technologies. Organisations will benefit from a comprehensive portfolio of unified cyber security services, including consultation, in the areas of Information & Threat Protection; Governance, Risk and Compliance; and Threat Intelligence & Cyber Security.

DarkMatter and Symantec's relationship will provide customers in the UAE with unique, simplified, anytime, anywhere services. Furthermore, the newly developed partner portfolio will educate organisations allowing them to adhere to today's multiple cyber industry regulatory and compliance laws - crucial to mitigate against today's ever-evolving threat landscape.

Commenting on the agreement, DarkMatter Chief Executive Officer, Faisal Al Bannai said, "DarkMatter and Symantec are collaborating to empower businesses and government agencies with strategic solutions that will help them transform their operations to reduce risk, cost, complexity as well as overcome compliance challenges."

Faisal Al Bannai continued, "DarkMatter has a compelling portfolio of cyber security solutions and we are enthusiastic about combining these with Symantec's leading technologies to better protect information in today's connected world."

Michael A. Brown, Symantec President and CEO said, "This relationship with DarkMatter will deliver local enterprises an unmatched combination of technology, intelligence and expertise. In addition, DarkMatter's solution and domain expertise complements Symantec's know-how in offering customised technology solutions to end-users."

With cyber attacks on the rise in the Middle East and across the world, DarkMatter and Symantec's relationship reflects an important initiative that helps organisations gain insight into threats and respond effectively to reduce their impact.

Cyber security is a fabric that is woven by threads of people, processes and technology. Today, security breaches increasingly occur due to the lack of understanding by individuals when applying secure solutions to protect business assets and critical information, or worse, when leaving equipment and work devices exposed to cyber threats.

DarkMatter is staffed by tier one international cyber experts who develop, manage and deploy the most innovative technologies, adhering to the company's Cyber Security Life-Cycle, which incorporates a four-stage approach involving planning, detection, protection and recovery, and reinforces its secure business solutions.
