Dubai Municipality to secure data centre with vArmour
vArmour DSS to protect software defined data centre
Dubai Municipality has selected vArmour's Distributed Security System (DSS) to secure its data centre.
The vArmour DSS solution will protect the municipality's software defined data centre, and create a more dynamic and flexible infrastructure.
Ahmed Mohd. Kajoor, Head of IT Infrastructure, Dubai Municipality commented: "Dubai's leadership continuously strives to better the lives of our residents through innovative and strategic technology deployments. Dubai Municipality chose vArmour Distributed Security System to help us further build an overall secure and dynamic infrastructure that can continue to launch new services for the citizens of Dubai. We were looking for a platform that can help us in three main areas: faster time to provision new services; scalable platform to support ever increasing performance requirements; application-based micro-segmentation to protect critical services running inside the cloud.
"With vArmour, we can continue to grow and scale without being road-blocked by future hardware issues that could potentially disrupt our business," he added.
With rapidly developing infrastructure, Dubai Municipality built out a new software-defined data centre as part of a mission critical private cloud. The 'Smart Design' protocol of Smart Dubai required an innovative, agile solution in which security could be easily orchestrated. Upon partnering with vArmour, the deployment of Distributed Security System took precisely 48 hours. As a result, Dubai Municipality was able to increase the operational agility to roll out new services by 200%, reduce capital expenditures and operational management costs by 50% and most importantly, strengthen the overall security of their critical infrastructure.
"vArmour's unique segmentation and micro-segmentation offering enables the moving of security around each workload in a way that directly aligns to the inherent style of Dubai Municipality's effective distribution of new services to its citizens," said Tim Eades, CEO, vArmour. "We're confident that in working with vArmour, Dubai Municipality has an opportunity to create a truly secure blueprint for the emerging economies of the world."
