Kuwaiti internet service provider Zajil will soon offer its customers cloud-delivered web security as value-added service. The solution, provided by cloud security specialist Zservices, provides local traffic termination and in-country privacy for the end user. The Zservices web and email security SaaS cloud will be physically present at Zajil's location and will interact with the global Zscalar Cloud infrastructure.
Commenting on the partnership, Mr. Khalifa I. Al Soulah, Managing Director and CEO at Zajil Telecom said, “Most of our customers use their internet bandwidth for surfing and it is not uncommon for them to face security risks from web-based malware and other malicious content. By offering Zservices' cloud based web and email security service to our customers, we can provide them with complete protection against internet security threats.”
The cloud infrastructure is built and powered by Zscaler - the Cloud Security Company - and offers policy-based, handset-agnostic, secure Internet access for any end-user. Zservices has deployed Zscaler cloud nodes at the most strategic internet points in the Middle East region. This enables the company to offer region-wide web and email cloud services and logging, local traffic termination and end-user data privacy. The infrastructure is built to serve the GCC and Levant Area with local cloud equipment within each country—all interacting globally with Zscaler’s worldwide cloud infrastructure.
“The Zservices Cloud infrastructure is the first Cloud-based web and email security service in the Middle East. The solution is highly scalable and interacts with the Zscalar global cloud infrastructure to protect users from web-based security threats, enforce security and policies and provide real-time reporting”, said Mr. Nidal Taha, Managing Director, Zservices.
