Dubai, United Arab Emirates, October 26, 2017 --( CTM360®, a growth-stage cyber security start-up from Bahrain, has received the Innovators Award at the marquee Forbes Middle East Innovators Awards; held at the Oberoi Hotel in Dubai on 1st October 2017. In a reflection of the company’s success, CTM360 was also included in the Forbes "Top 100 Startups from the Arab World" list - one of only three companies from Bahrain to be featured.

As a leading cybersecurity company from the region, CTM360 has shown continuous agility and innovation in developing and refining its portfolio of cybersecurity services. Through a cloud-based platform, CTM360 accounts for all variations of threats that originate in cyberspace without requiring any installations, access to infrastructure or prior information from organizations.

“Our success hinges on providing true value to every member without gimmicks. The CTM360 service was developed with three core foundations in mind: agility, innovation and determination; this makes our team highly adaptable to our members. Without requiring any insight into their infrastructure or architecture, Team CTM360 can be deployed as an external SOC on the internet. We are a very results-oriented setup and our achievements in hunting and neutralizing threats on the internet have given CTM360 widespread recognition. Ecstatic with this Forbes achievement,” stated Mirza Asrar Baig, founder & CEO of CTM360.

Mirza also added, “Our aim is to spread awareness to transform the Arab world’s understanding of cyber security. There is enough talent, drive and hunger to push the envelope in technology innovation locally.”

As an ongoing subscription-based service, CTM360 enables companies to perform Cyber Threat Management outside the perimeter of the organization. This decentralized approach means the company can tackle cyber threats on a global scale, in any industry and any geography.

“Our incident management, digital risk management and other portals are complemented by a strong technical backbone, which combine to provide one seamless service. A desire to build a world-class service is a key driver that has helped CTM360 rapidly scale up. We reside exclusively in cyberspace and our intention is to become the dedicated cybersecurity department of organizations, of all sizes in any industry or geography,” stated Arsalan Iqbal, Director for Growth & Strategy.

This quarter has been a remarkable one for CTM360, with the company recipient of recognition not only from Forbes, but also being winners of Red Herring Asia (Manila) and Best Managed Detection & Response Provider at the Security Advisor awards.
