Bahrain network VIVA has partnered with Intel Security to build a Cyber Defence Centre (CDC) to enhance Bahrain's cyber defence capabilities.

The partnership will see Managed Security Services (MSS) added to VIVA's cloud services portfolio, which will provide enterprises a one-stop shop for all communication and data security requirements based on Intel's security technology.

The CDC will assist enterprises across all industries in the private and public sectors including banking, transportation and government, to combat threats from the virtual world. This will enable customers to respond in real-time to protect their critical data, plus the CDC will eliminate the need for lengthy procurement with specialised IT experts available on premises for immediate support.

VIVA Bahrain CEO Eng. Ulaiyan Al Wetaid said: "With more enterprises turning to cloud-based solutions to store critical business data, we at VIVA have directed our focus to new data protection tactics that match the pace of Bahrain's ICT developments. We will leverage our leading position, extensive expertise and strong presence in the marketplace to build a CDC which offers customers a full suite of security offerings that can evolve with their business."

"We are confident in Intel Security's capabilities as a provider of cloud-first integrated security solutions and look forward to providing the best-in-class security solutions to our customers," he concluded.

Tarek Jundi, managing director, Middle East & Turkey, Intel Security, added: "Enterprises have, rightly so, begun to make considerable investments in security, many a time opting to work through Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs). Backed by our industry leading integrated security platform, we have made considerable investments in the region to help service providers like VIVA and channel partners build a robust MSSP practice that will allow them to offer their customers unparalleled levels of security whilst providing both growth and profitability."
