H.E Rashed Abdulkarim Al Blooshi, Undersecretary of Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED), H.E Sameh Al Qubaisi, Director General of Economic Affairs at ADDED, and Eng. Abdulla Abdul Aziz Al Shamsi, Acting Director General of the Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO), attended the launch of Bespin Global’s new headquarters. The ceremony was also attended by Hoon Park, Co-founder & Global Expansion Team Leader, Bespin Global, Mouteih Chaghlil, CEO of Middle East & Africa, Bespin Global, and Bazel El Sharif, Vice President of Commercial, Bespin Global.

The new Bespin Global headquarters, located at Al Wafra Square on Al Reem Island, have been established with support from ADIO’s Innovation Programme, to accelerate digital transformation in the region. The programme reaffirms Abu Dhabi’s commitment to fostering innovative ideas and solutions that are regionally relevant and globally exportable.

The first-of-its-kind Cloud Operations Centre includes a Security Operations Centre that monitors threats to infrastructure and helps mitigate the likelihood of attacks. The Network Operations Centre is also located at the facility, continuously monitoring the health of servers and applications to ensure they run 100 percent efficiently.

Mouteih Chaghlil, CEO of Middle East & Africa, said that Bespin Global will be able to provide 24/7 service to its customers throughout the year due to the Cloud Operations Centre, which will rely heavily on automation. “Cloud security is still nascent, so we intend to help clients navigate this territory with our expertise,” he said. “Even though the Cloud Operations Centre is available on-prem, no other center that monitors the cloud exists in the region.”

After the event, Bazel El Sharif, VP of Commercial, Bespin Global, stated that the Bespin Academy will integrate outcome-driven courses, hands-on laboratories, and performance-based tests to assess, train, and validate competency and skills using technologies offered by the company.
