eHDF to provide hosting services for Security Lab
Partnering with eHDF means that Security Lab can carry out its services, while customer data stays within the UAE, says Zeineldin.

eHosting DataFort has been signed up to provide hosting services for Swiss security specialist Security Lab.

Under the strategic partnership, eHosting DataFort will host the local IT infrastructure of Security Lab, to protect confidential data of Security Lab's customers.

Security Lab provides security audits to banks and multinationals, including vulnerability assessments and penetration testing. As its multinational customer base expands into new markets, Security Lab has chosen to tie-up with regional service provides to to host highly sensitive customer information and communications securely.

Alberto Redi, Partner at Security Lab, said:  "Digital threats pose major challenges to organisations that need to protect sensitive data; communications and IT assets and they want to partner with specialists in the area of security and managed services, such as Security Lab and business partners like eHDF.

"We are extremely satisfied with the services provided by eHDF. Its impressive client base ensures confidence and trust amongst our customers. As a local service provider, we are assured of eHDF's highest levels of security, prompt response time and superior service account management," he added.

Yasser Zeineldin, CEO, eHDF, commented: "The UAE is attracting global businesses by providing a business friendly and progressive environment that facilitates the expansion of their operations across the region. For many of these organisations, working with a local managed IT service provider offers a value-add as critical customer data remains within the country. For Security Lab, it was essential to work with a local managed IT company, not only to physically protect their IT infrastructure, but also to ensure secure communications that meet its customers' international compliance and standards requirements."

Security Lab is also looking to bring its ethical hacking training courses, provided under the Zone-h brand, to the region, and is looking to appoint training partners in the UAE.
