Oman Data Park partners with Cisco for MSS
Data centre operator to offer managed security services from Cisco at newly opened Duqm Data Centre
Oman Data Park (ODP), the first managed service provider in Oman, has deployed Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) as part of its ODP Managed Security Services for endpoint protection.
Oman Data Park offers managed cloud services, public cloud, co-location and managed security services to both large and small organisations in Oman. In February 2018, ODP launched its third data centre in Oman at Duqm. ODP Duqm Data Centre complements two other active data centres at Knowledge Oasis Muscat and Wattayah.
At the Duqm Data Centre, Oman Data Park partnered with Cisco to offer managed security services. “Based on the early success of Knowledge Oasis Muscat and Wattayah Data Centres, we were confident that Cisco would give us the same benefits with our third data centre. Using Cisco data centre networking, compute, collaboration, security and many other solutions, we are able to control our total cost of ownership, avoid complexity while building resiliency, and significantly differentiate our services,” said Maqbool Al Wahaibi, CEO, Oman Data Park. “From our Duqm data centre, we intend to offer cloud services to government and commercial entities, with a strong focus on the banking and financial industry,” he added.
“Cisco is looking forward to work with Oman Data Park and provide multiple new solutions, including Application & Business Performance, Cloud Managed Infrastructure and Software Defined Networking (SDN) platforms, with a scalable network performance of 40Gbps,” said Ali AL-Lawati, general manager, Cisco Oman.
Maitham AL-Lawati, general manager, risk & compliance at ODP added: “With Cisco AMP, we will be able to offer our customers a Next-Generation Endpoint Security Solution that prevents, detects, and responds to Advanced Threats. Cisco AMP takes a cloud-based approach to threat intelligence and file analysis and is a key differentiator for our ODP Managed Security Service. Cisco AMP continuously monitors, analyses, and records all activity to uncover malicious behaviour. That way, it helps to drastically reduce investigation and remediation time, and it automatically shares that intelligence with all devices the threat has touched across the network.”
