eHosting DataFort sees rise of managed security services in UAE
Security skills and specialised talent shortage in the Middle East paves the way for growth of managed security services
Managed hosting and security services provider eHosting DataFort (eHDF), has said the surge of managed security services (MSS) globally and in the Middle East is because of increased levels of cyber threats, in-house shortage of security skills talent, digital transformation and increased adoption of BYOD due to the progressive increase in the mobile workforce.
According to eHDF, organisations are also relying on MSS providers with portfolios that include advanced predictive security intelligence and analysis as well as detection services to manage and mitigate the complex security landscape.
Yasser Zeineldin, CEO, eHosting DataFort, said the frequency and very powerful security threats that organisations are facing are now being recognised and discussed in boardrooms. "Focused efforts are going into detailed strategies to build and implement comprehensive security for risk management and protection," he said. "The fast-paced developments in cyber security also call for specialised skills. Most organisations are unprepared to adapt to this next chapter."
Zeineldin said as MSS providers, the company is seeing an increasing number of CIOs contracting these services to reduce the vulnerabilities to attacks as well as enable a quick response to information security breach incidents. "As an MSS provider, we focus on ensuring that our services are positioned to provide advanced threat intelligence and management for larger organisations as well as the growing SMB markets in the Middle East," he said. "Our team of skilled professionals and experts are equipped to provide short and long term security strategies, and we have continued to grow our customer base by meeting their diverse demands.
eHDF recently added several certifications that illustrate the company's commitment to providing its customers with the best security services.
