Trend Micro recognizes Al Ghurair for its outstanding dedication to cybersecurity

Honoring a longstanding relationship, the company awards Al Ghurair for its extraordinary demonstration of cyber security resilience in the new digital era

25 October 2021 – Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, today awarded Al Ghurair, one of the largest diversified family business groups in the Middle East, for its remarkable approach to embracing cyber security as an imperative to protect its digital environment. 

At the biggest tech show in the region, GITEX 2021 Technology Week, Trend Micro highlighted its decade long partnership with Al Ghurair and its valuable contribution to the UAE.  Majd Sinan, Country Manager, Trend Micro UAE, presented an award to Marinda Sheahan, Group Vice President IT, from Al Ghurair for the organization’s continued resilience in cybersecurity. 

“These past few years, we have made significant strides in securing our IT infrastructure, especially during the most crucial phases of our digital transformation journey,” said Sheahan, Al Ghurair. “To safeguard our growth and operations, we needed a security vendor that provides our security teams with appropriate guidance and cutting-edge solutions to negate any vulnerabilities that exist within our organization; and Trend Micro stood its ground throughout this time. We are excited about our journey ahead and will continue to fortify our security posture with the benefits of robust multi-layered protection such as Trend Micro Vision One with Managed XDR and extended threat intelligence.” 

By establishing a healthy collaboration with Trend Micro, Al Ghurair has enriched its operations by equipping its digital framework with advanced security solutions, protecting more than 4000 endpoints, servers, and multiple networks, said Kamran Manzoor, Al Ghurair Information Security Architect. The migration to the cloud has prompted the company to also embrace Trend Micro Apex One, providing an automated, insightful, all-in-one cybersecurity solution against the ever-evolving threat landscape.  

“For an organization to have such a significant impact in the development of a country, it needs to be two steps ahead of the curve with the right backing of innovation and advanced protection – and this award is evidence of that, said Majd Sinan, Country Manager, UAE for Trend Micro. “Our collaboration with Al Ghurair has been phenomenal and an honor for us to play a role in securing its digital estate across the cloud, networks, devices, and endpoints. We look forward to further strengthening our relationship on this milestone, for years to come and beyond.”
