NEW YORK, December 23, 2020: Ericom Software, a leader in Zero Trust cloud cybersecurity solutions and a member of the Oracle Partner Network (OPN), today announced an expansion of its Ericom Global Cloud platform data centre presence in the Middle East to support growing demand for Ericom Shield Remote Browser Isolation (RBI). These investments expand local access to Ericom’s globally distributed, multi-tenant cloud platform for all organisations in the region.
The rate of cyberattacks using malware designed to exploit web browser vulnerabilities has been dramatically accelerating. These types of web and email based attacks use zero-day malware embedded in the content of websites to deliver ransomware, exfiltrate data, disrupt operations, and more. Ericom Shield RBI prevents 100% of web-based attacks by executing web content in a remote, isolated cloud-based container, sending only safe rendering information to a device’s browser. When users interact with the websites they are completely safe since no web content is ever executed directly on their devices.
Local Cloud Datacentre’s Deliver Performance, Availability, and Data Sovereignty
The latest data centres in the Middle East, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and Dubai are deployed in Oracle’s Cloud Infrastructure, a market-leading platform capable of elastically increasing compute capacity and processing to accommodate changing data traffic needs.
“Ericom’s growing data centre footprint in the Middle East is important for a number of reasons,” said Ravi Pather, Ericom Vice President, Europe and Middle East. “Meeting local data residency and sovereignty requirements means that that cloud-based services must retain data and logs in the region. Having multiple Points of Presence also allows us to deliver the performance and resiliency enterprises expect”.
