UAE ministry adopts Microsoft software to protect against advanced cyber threats

Tuesday 3 December 2019 | 10:48 CET | News

The UAE’s ministry of community development (MOCD) has teamed up with Microsoft to protect its digital assets from cyber-attacks. The ministry will adopt Microsoft’s Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) to protect its digital perimeter and respond to endpoint attacks, advanced threats, fileless attacks and zero-day exploits.

The ministry said third-party anti-virus solutions were insufficient to guard against sophisticated, fileless and zero-day threats and thus MOCD opted to standardise its cybersecurity strategy using Microsoft Defender ATP, leading to a simplification of operations and a more coherent defence of its digital estate.
