10 Sep Oman Arab Bank selects Trend Micro to protect its IT environment
One the largest banks in Oman has selected Trend Micro a global leader in cybersecurity solutions for its IT security infrastructure.
Established in 1984, currently Oman Arab Bank (OAB) operates more than 65 branches and representative offices and over 148 ATMs across the Sultanate. The bank is quickly becoming a leader in security technology among the financial institutions, within Oman, setting the standard for best cyber security practices. In their next step towards endpoint segmentation on the network, OAB has selected Trend Micro for its DR security because they wanted to have that same comfort level, and ensure best security practices.
“Investing in the best security for our IT infrastructure is of supreme important to us, as we continue to expand our business. We needed a security solution that was flexible enough to integrate into our existing landscape, and had the ability to help us evolve, whilst protecting our digital platforms. In Trend Micro we have found the ideal security partner,” commented Mustafa Surour, Oman Arab Bank.
OAB faces stealthy targeted attacks, custom designed to penetrate standard defences, and poised to monetize intellectual property and customer information, or to encrypt essential data for ransom. OAB ‘s evolving IT infrastructure needed an instinctive security solution that was forward-looking, easily scalable, and capable of meeting the constant security demands.
“Trend Micro helps companies embrace cyber security technologies securely. Our layered security model is ideally suited to help financial institutions like Oman Arab Bank, remain protected against the high volume of threats that target the bank on a daily basis,” commented Bilal Baig, technical director, MENA, Trend Micro.
