Noor Takaful chooses BIOS Middle East’s Cloud
The NESA compliance mandate from the Insurance Authority made it imperative to provide a Security Incident & Event Monitoring (SIEM) service that was both complaint and cost effective for Noor Takaful.
BIOS Middle East announced that it has successfully completed Noor Takaful’s migration from on premise to the cloud, to accelerate its digital transformation journey.
Insurance companies in the UAE are required to adhere to NESA compliance; as such, the applications must be hosted in the UAE with an in-country disaster recovery. Noor Takaful chose BIOS Middle East and CloudHPT for the cloud migration project.
“It’s an exciting time for Noor Takaful, this project was extremely crucial to take the business to the next level of growth and we’re delighted to have chosen BIOS Middle East as our partner,” said Rajesh Sethi, CEO of Noor Takaful | Ethical Insurance. “I am confident that we will be even more responsive and customer centric now.”
The services delivered and migrated include domain migration, email migration to M365 with Mail Assure security and archiving from Solarwinds. The cut over happened over a weekend with only minutes of downtime.
“The insurance industry in the UAE is undergoing a profound transformation and technology is at the forefront of it. BIOS Middle East is proud to be the technology partner of choice for Noor Takaful and this complex, critical project allows us to leverage our knowledge and experience in the insurance industry to provide Noor Takaful a modern, agile and cost effective platform on which to run their business with confidence,” said Dominic Docherty, Managing Director, BIOS Middle East.
Built on Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI), CloudHPT is the only Cisco Powered Cloud in the Middle East. All servers on CloudHPT are fully backed up using Veeam and managed by a team of engineers from a 24/7 Network Operation Center (NOC) based in Dubai
“As part of our digital transformation drive, we have successfully migrated from an on premise setup and have implemented a fully managed cloud environment to run the business,” said Frederick Bisbjerg, Chief Digital Acceleration Officer, Noor Takaful | Ethical Insurance. “This modern, agile, scalable and secure cloud environment eliminates future CAPEX requirements in the process. We now have a future proofed IT environment that is compliant to the industry standards and lower running operational costs.”
