GBM launches revolutionary cyber defense program ‘GBM Shield’ in Kuwait

Kuwait City, Kuwait – Following the acquisition of leading cybersecurity service provider Coordinates Middle East in September, Gulf Business Machines (GBM) has announced the launch of GBM Shield, its most comprehensive cybersecurity offering to date. GBM Shield was introduced to regional organizations at the flagship GBM Security Summit held in Kuwait City last week, thus marking a new chapter in cyber defense for the country.

Developed to address evolving security challenges that regional organizations face due to the sophisticated threat landscape, the GBM Shield cyber defense program taps into GBM’s extensive experience and local know-how, while also providing 24/7 access to GBM’s uniquely skilled team of security professionals. In a holistic approach to cybersecurity, the program is risk-driven rather than technology-driven, thus enhancing existing technologies within an organization to elevate its security and cyber resiliency and increase the returns on security investment.

Wassim Seliman, General Manager at GBM Kuwait, said: “In the last few years, we have seen the technology landscape in Kuwait evolve like never before. With big leaps in the country’s digital transformation, and increased adoption of technologies such as cloud and Artificial Intelligence (AI), we are seeing increased sophistication in cyber threats and wider impact on an organization’s operations.
