eFinance has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with F5, a multi-cloud application services and security specialist, to help protect and optimise Egypt’s digital transformation priorities.
eFinance, the partner of choice for Egypt’s growing digital economy and financial transformation, as well as in-country public cloud provider, is now set to offer F5’s extensive solutions portfolio to organisations across the country.
Initially, the partnership will focus on cloud- and cybersecurity-based technologies.
”We are delighted to partner with F5, which is already supporting many of eFinance’s customers in Egypt”, said Atef Mohamed, IT & Cloud Director, eFinance.
“Our mission is to enable organisations across the country to lead cutting-edge, transformative initiatives that are aligned with vital social development goals. F5 is an ideal partner for us in this respect, and has a world-class reputation for helping its customers —the world’s largest enterprises, service providers, financial and educational institutions, government entities, and consumer brands—to create, secure, and operate applications that deliver extraordinary digital experiences”.
F5 offers a unique portfolio of automation, security, performance, and insight capabilities. It empowers customers to create, secure, and operate the applications – whether monolithic or modern – that help reduce operational cost and complexity, protect users’ experience, and create business value.
“eFinance is integral to the Egyptian government’s digital transformation strategy, so it is a huge honour to finalise this MoU”, said Bassem Saleh, Sales Lead for Egypt at F5.
“In particular, our ability to secure any app and API – irrespective of where they are deployed – will be central to the rollout of app- and cloud-centric projects across the country. Given the volume of business and data that is now flowing through apps, combined with their increasingly distributed nature, security has taken on new significance. At F5, we’re not only able to protect access to apps, but also how they are used – wherever that may be”.
