DarkMatter, a cyber security firm headquartered in the UAE, today announced the opening of its research and development (R&D) centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The facility will focus on the advancement of DarkMatter’s secure communications technologies and will work in concert with the company’s R&D centre in the UAE.

DarkMatter has established a built-to-spec R&D facility in Toronto staffed by a team with impressive prior experience building security focused products.

DarkMatter continues to actively seek to hire engineers with experience across multiple disciplines and planforms, including embedded system, mobile, desktop, server and IoT for its R&D facility in Toronto. The company remains committed to attracting and retaining the best industry practitioners, reinforcing its ambition to be a cyber security company based in the UAE, with products and services being developed and shipped globally.

Commenting on the opening of the new DarkMatter R&D centre, Faisal Al Bannai, Chief Executive Officer of DarkMatter 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.

Eugene Chin, Country Director – Canada for DarkMatter commented, “The team is enthusiastic about moving into our new premises and continuing our work on finding innovative solutions to challenging problems. DarkMatter is coming with a completely fresh approach to cyber security, taking a holistic view of it and ensuring end-to-end protection. The work we are undertaking in Toronto is crucial to this effort given the importance of securing environments in a highly connected world.”

Already a trusted partner to governments and critical entities, DarkMatter is staffed by tier-one international cyber experts who develop, manage and deploy the most innovative technologies. Solutions adhere to the company’s Cyber Security Life-Cycle, which incorporates a four-stage approach involving planning, detection, protection and recovery.

DarkMatter is leveraging this experience in the wider market as it looks to serve regional and international clients. The company provides a complete portfolio of cyber security solutions and services to organisations that have sophisticated security requirements, from governments and infrastructure operators to large corporations.
