Zservices, a provider of the Zscaler cloud security services in the Middle East, Zservices, has signed a partnership agreement with Kuwaiti ISP Zajil.
Zajil will now offer Zservices' cloud-delivered web security solution as a value-added service to its customers under the terms of the agreement.
The service provides local traffic termination and in-country privacy for the end user. The Zservices web and email security SaaS cloud will be physically present at Zajil's location and will interact with the global Zscalar Cloud infrastructure.
"Most of our customers use their internet bandwidth for surfing and it is not uncommon for them to face security risks from web-based malware and other malicious content. By offering Zservices' cloud based web and email security service to our customers, we can provide them with complete protection against internet security threats. The ultra-low latency, high reliability and availability of the Zservices cloud infrastructure means end-users can enjoy a better browsing experience with near-zero downtime," said Khalifa I Al Soulah, managing director and CEO at Zajil Telecom.
Zservices Middle East cloud infrastructure is built and powered by Zscaler, which is designed to offer policy-based secure internet access for any end-user, on any device, anywhere.
Zservices has deployed Zscaler cloud nodes at several strategic internet points in the Middle East region. This is designed to enable the company to offer region-wide web and email cloud services and logging, local traffic termination and end-user data privacy.
The infrastructure is built to serve the GCC and Levant areas with local cloud equipment within each country, designed to interact globally with Zscaler's worldwide cloud infrastructure.
"The Zservices Cloud infrastructure is the first Cloud-based web and email security service in the Middle East. The solution is highly scalable and interacts with the Zscalar global cloud infrastructure to protect users from web-based security threats, enforce security and policies and provide real-time reporting. We are highly optimistic about our partnership with Zajil which will enable a large number of internet users in Kuwait to benefit from this service", said Nidal Taha, managing director, Zservices.
