Dragos, the global leader in cybersecurity for industrial control systems (ICS)/operational technology (OT) environments, announced an accelerated expansion in the UAE to provide organisations in the region with more direct access to its industrial cybersecurity technology and services so they can respond more quickly to threats, while also developing and training ICS/OT cybersecurity talent to ensure world-wide customer success. The expansion includes a new office in Dubai, which has a planned opening in Q1 2022.
The expansion aligns with the UAE’s cybersecurity strategy established by the Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority. Dragos addresses the burgeoning global market for ICS/OT cybersecurity solutions and meets the cybersecurity needs of critical infrastructure organisations in all regions and of any size or complexity.

Within the UAE, Dragos is already protecting the industrial environments of several companies, enabling them to maintain comprehensive asset visibility, assess OT-specific threats and vulnerabilities, and respond to threats based on the latest threat intelligence. Their use of Dragos allows them to minimise risk to plant operations and improve security while also meeting regulatory compliance requirements.
“Many industrial organisations in the UAE are leading the way with digital transformation and recognising that ICS/OT cybersecurity is more critical than ever in a hyperconnected world,” said Robert M. Lee, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Dragos, Inc. “We are excited to make ICS/OT cybersecurity expertise and technology more accessible to organisations in the UAE as well as to partner with organisations and local ICS/OT cybersecurity practitioner communities here to help grow a needed pool of talented cybersecurity practitioners.”
