NSSG, Datamount sign strategic cooperation agreement

Muscat: National Security Services Group (NSSG), Oman’s leading cybersecurity firm, has signed a Strategic Cooperation Agreement with Datamount, the largest and the only tier-4 data centre and data hosting services company in Oman. The memorandum of understanding (MoU) establishes a general framework for collaboration between NSSG and Datamount to promote each other’s services. The agreement also stipulates a framework for NSSG to act as a cybersecurity arm of Datamount.
Talal Al Zubair, founder and CEO of NSSG, and Dr Tahir Al Kindi, Chairman of Datamount, signed the agreement recently at the headquarters of the NSSG in Muscat, in the presence of a number of executives from both companies.
On the signing of the agreement, Al Zubair said, “This collaboration endorses many potential opportunities for both companies. The agreement aims at leveraging synergies between the two organisations, especially promoting cooperation on cybersecurity and data hosting. It will focus on other areas of cooperation identified as mutually important for both the organisations.”
“As a robust cybersecurity firm, NSSG leads the market with its innovative offerings, range of proprietary products and services. We assist organisations in migrating from the traditional analogue world to the digital world, and our goal is to raise the integrity and resilience of our clients," he added.
"NSSG is your one-stop healthcare centre for all cybersecurity needs in Oman; we aim to become not only a trusted partner but a companion in Oman’s digital journey and to ensure that the country remains digitally resilient,” he said.
Abdul Hakeem Al Musalhi said, “We are pleased to be working with NSSG, a leader among cyber security companies, offering comprehensive security services to its clients. Solid partnerships remain key to navigating the increasingly complex cyber terrain. This agreement shall augment and complement the range of offerings—cybersecurity services, data hosting, and cloud services—for both parties to optimise.”
“Datamount is delighted to meet the ever-increasing demand of Omani companies by hosting their critical IT infrastructure and data securely inside the country,” he added.
