eHosting DataFort (eHDF) has entered into a strategic tie-up with Switzerland’s Security Lab to host its IT infrastructure and protect the confidential data of its customers within the UAE.
Security Lab specialises in providing security audits to banks and multinationals, delivering services that include vulnerability assessment and penetration testing. It has a portfolio of global clients from the legal and financial sectors, many of which are setting up base in Dubai. Regional tie-ups with IT service providers is a core strategy that the security firm adopts around the world to host highly sensitive customer information and communications securely.
Yasser Zeineldin, CEO, eHDF, said: “The UAE is attracting global businesses by providing a business friendly and progressive environment that facilitates the expansion of their operations across the region. For many of these organisations, working with a local managed IT service provider offers a value-add as critical customer data remains within the country.
“For Security Lab, it was essential to work with a local managed IT company, not only to physically protect their IT infrastructure, but also to ensure secure communications that meet its customers’ international compliance and standards requirements.”
Alberto Redi, Partner at Security Lab, said: “Digital threats pose major challenges to organisations that need to protect sensitive data; communications and IT assets and they want to partner with specialists in the area of security and managed services, such as Security Lab and business partners like eHDF.
