Zain Jordan and I(TS)2 team up for co-branded MSS
Zain Jordan to offer I(TS)2 managed security services portfolio to enterprise customers
Zain Jordan and I(TS)2 have created a strategic alliance to deliver managed security services to Zain's enterprise customers.
Under the agreement, Zain will co-brand I(TS)2's MSS, and will leverage I(TS)2's Security Operation Centre in Amman to deliver services to customers in sectors such as finance and government.
The MSS portfolio will include services such as monitoring and management of security solutions on a customer's network, vulnerability assessments, penetration testing and risk assessment.
The pair intend to launch services next month, in part to help banks and other companies involved with credit card transactions to meet the incoming PCI compliance requirements as ordered by the Central Bank of Jordan, and to meet regulations from credit card companies.
"As an integral part of our strategy to provide integrated solutions to our valued enterprise customers like banks, reputable corporations and the government, introducing Managed Security Services will enhance Zain's capabilities to enrich our offerings to these sectors", said Dr Abdul Malek Al Jaber, Zain Jordan's CEO.
"We selected I(TS)2 over other MSS Providers because they combined international expertise with local capabilities. This relationship is only the beginning of a series of MSS offerings that will expand to mobile users as well," he added.
Samer Omar CEO of I(TS)2 said: "We believe this partnership will provide Zain's enterprise customers with a trusted operator relationship that will ensure 24x7x365 security monitoring and management. Customers are living in an E-Era and security is a major concern for most of them; our joint services will provide customers a more secure and reliable online experience."
