Security integrator Paramount Computer Systems has enlarged its footprint in the Gulf market by opening a branch office in Muscat, Oman.

The move brings the number of offices Paramount operates in the GCC to six, with two in the UAE and one each in Qatar, Kuwait and Bahrain.

CEO Premchand Kurup claims that the integrator has been able to secure "some significant wins" by supporting Omani clients from Dubai, but admits the time has now come for it to show how serious it is about the market.

"We realised that our kitchen needs to be close to the dining table of our customers - a fundamental pre-requisite for a customer-centric company and hence the decision to open an office in Muscat," he explained. "The new office is testimony to our commitment to our customers who reposed their confidence in us even when we did not have ground support".

Paramount, which provides technology from vendors such as Juniper, McAfee, Blue Coat and TippingPoint, employs 80 people in the region and will initially start with a team of three in Oman.

Kurup insists Paramount is "bullish" about its growth prospects in the country and expects to secure more business with a three-pronged strategy centred on people, processes and technology.

"This will be a strong differentiator in the market," he said. "We seek leadership position here through our excellent mix of technology, knowledge, experienced and certified workforce, and quality partnerships. Our technical capabilities are field-proven. For instance, identity and access management is a crying need today and Paramount is the only company that can claim to have more than 10 successful implementations in the region."
