The new bases are expected to further strengthen ISIT’s position and its growth across the Middle East region as the company strives to offer customised solutions for storing and securing digital information to its fast expanding region-wide customer base. The company’s Middle East headquarters located in Dubai is currently in its third year of operation.
Mahesh Vaidya, CEO, ISIT Middle East, says: “ISIT is synonymous with data storage in Holland for over 20 years. Therefore, as part of our global expansion strategy, ISIT is looking at expanding operations across the Middle East.”
Vaidya says 20 years of providing customer-focused solutions across Europe and Middle East along with a consultancy led vendor neutral approach has created wider market acceptance for ISIT. “A continuous focus on information storage and security provides us an edge over our competitors and we believe the region offers us tremendous potential,” Vaidya says.
Despite the global recession, customers in Middle East have not stopped investing in building the IT infrastructure, especially in storage and security, according to industry research. ISIT has been working with customers in these areas, and has achieved several successful implementations.
Due to continuous investment in this segment, ISIT also expects its revenues to double this year.
Vaidya adds that he growth in the region has encouraged ISIT to initiate a major expansion phase consolidating its position in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. “The next phase of growth for ISIT will be in Qatar. We are confident our growth will positively reflect on our annual revenue,” he says.
ISIT sees data loss prevention as one segment with huge potential in these newly expanded areas. As storage and security are not issues limited to large enterprises, the company has also witnessed an uptake in mid to high-tier enterprise customers across the region.
ISIT’s security offerings enable customers to build a security framework that are customised to meet the unique business needs of organisations across various sectors. From banking and finance, oil and gas, government, manufacturing, telecommunications, healthcare and education, ISIT’s team of qualified consultants understand the market needs through delivering a host of security service solutions that range from consultancy, product technologies, implementation and support to training IT managers on-site.
ISIT Middle East, the regional arm of Europe?s pioneering data storage and security solutions provider, recently opened its new offices in Abu Dhabi, Manama, Riyadh and Al Khobar as part of its plan to expand its regional footprint.
