Paladion has announced a new AI-driven SOC, based in Dubai. According to Paladion COO Sunil Gupta, the company has already switched to AI-driven SOCs for all of its customers, located around the world.
“Our region faces a severe cyber security skills shortage, and limited resources to defend against escalating attacks; our AI-Driven SOCs addresses this gap,” said Amit Roy, EVP and Regional Head, EMEA, at Paladion.
Roy said that the security operations centre would help achieve “the UAE government’s vision to be the city of the future” by tackling “sophisticated and creative” cyberattacks.

The new SOC will serve customers in the Middle East and Africa area, and a statement by Paladion claims that it is designed specifically to combat the “volatile” threat landscape in the Middle East, including malicious AI and “hacktivist” activity.
“Most of our legacy MSSP customers in the Middle East have already been transitioned to our AI-Driven MDR service over the last two years,” said Gupta. “With Dubai’s own AI-driven SOC, Paladion gives the region a unified, comprehensive security program capable of defending organizations at every stage of an attack. Like all our regional SOCs, the Dubai SOC is seamlessly connected to our Global Security Operations Centre to ensure there is a mix of regional and global thinking when combatting today’s advanced cyber threats.”
