Forcepoint has announced the opening of a new data centre in Dubai.

The security company says that having a local data centre, which will deliver services including Forcepoint Cloud Web Security, will mean low latency benefits for customers in the Middle East and will allow in-country handling of data and support.

The combination of minimal latency, localised access to data and support for all connectivities, such as Proxy Connect and Direct Connect, will reinforce Forcepoint's security offering in the region.

Ozgur Danisman Senior Manager Sales and Engineering MENA at Forcepoint said: "We're delighted to be able to bring secure cloud services to customers and channel partners in the UAE and surrounding regions, through our best-in-class product, Forcepoint Cloud Web Security. This local investment will certainly have a positive impact and shows our trust and commitment to the UAE economy and GCC. The global threat landscape is in a permanent state of change and having a resilient and advanced local offering will give our customers peace of mind that their data is located within their region."

Mahmoud-Samy Ibrahim, Area Vice President for the Emerging Region at Forcepoint added: "The opening of this data centre represents a milestone for Forcepoint's continued investment in the region, as its global footprint grows. The cybersecurity industry in the Middle East is undergoing a period of drastic change and customer demands for security are shifting alongside it. It is imperative that Forcepoint is able to provide advanced security solutions that meet and exceed these demands and enable customers from different industries to defend against sophisticated attacks."
