DarkMatter cyber security firm opens R&D centre in Toronto

UAE – DarkMatter, a cyber security firm in the UAE, has opened a research and development (R&D) centre in Toronto, Ontario (Canada).

The facility will focus on the advancement of the company’s secure communications technologies and will work in concert with the company’s R&D centre in the UAE, said a statement. It is staffed by a team with prior experience building security focused products, it said.

The company continues to seek to hire engineers with experience across multiple disciplines and platforms, including embedded system, mobile, desktop, server and IoT for its R&D facility in Toronto.

Faisal Al Bannai, chief executive officer, said: “This is a significant milestone in the unfolding of DarkMatter’s mission and vision to offer end-to-end protection of national and commercial infrastructure from cyber threats.  We have assembled a world-class R&D team in Toronto and they now have cutting edge facilities from which to operate. I believe their efforts will be matched by those of the international experts we are attracting to the UAE, and together the teams will deliver a level of cyber security support that has never-before been experienced across geographies.”

DarkMatter’s secure communications applications are designed to offer government entities and security-conscious businesses in the Middle East region and further afield the ability to deploy and utilise a regionally developed, word-class solution.
