Trend Micro reinforces strategic partnership with OQ

Muscat: Trend Micro Incorporated, a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with one of the globally leading integrated energy companies OQ at the 31st Edition of the Comex Technology Show 2022 at the Oman Convention Center recently.

The event is held under the auspices of Dr Khamis bin Saif Al Jabri, Head of the Follow-up Unit for the Implementation of Oman Vision 2040.

This initiative is considered one of the most important strategic projects in the field of cyber security in the Sultanate for the year 2022. Under this agreement, Trend Micro will contribute to laying a solid foundation for protecting the entire digital infrastructure of OQ, as well as enhancing its capabilities in the Oil & Gas sector by promoting and enabling innovations and helping to provide them with industry-leading solutions. The MoU was signed by Maryam Al-Shaibani, Vice President for Information Digital Solution, Oman Oil Company and Assad Arabi, Managing Director, Gulf Cluster, Trend Micro.

Trend Micro aims to ensure the security protection of nine business units within the OQ framework, utilising best practices, advanced cybersecurity technology, and established strategies, especially since the group has built a strong presence in 17 countries globally.

Trend Micro’s robust solutions will fortify OQ’s operations and activities that cover the entire value chain in the energy sector, from exploration and production to marketing and distribution of finished products for fuels and chemicals to more than 60 countries across the world. The new agreement marks the start of a new digital era that takes advantage of the latest cybersecurity solutions and experiences that achieve growth for OQ within a secure system. The MoU also reflects Trend Micro’s ongoing efforts to help OQ and its customers to obtain unique sustainable solutions and services in the energy sector and reinforce the oil & gas company’s commitment to strengthening the national economy and the goals of Vision 2040.

“It is always a pleasure to build upon a relationship that leads to creating a stronger and resilient organisation such as OQ,” says Assad Arabi, Managing Director, Gulf Cluster, Trend Micro. “It is imperative to secure digital environments with robust cybersecurity solutions as threat actors are evolving in their approach and seeking opportunities to gain access and derail enterprise operations. We at Trend Micro remain committed to supporting OQ with the best in cybersecurity, enabling them to accelerate growth and develop sustainable solutions to help them accomplish their Vision 2040 goals.”

It is also worth noting that this partnership is a part of previous collaborations that brought Trend Micro and OQ together to complete the successful march in securing all units of OQ against the evolving threat landscape.
