As a step to enhance the nation’s cyber defence capabilities, VIVA joined forces with Intel Security to establish Bahrain’s first world-class Cyber Defence Centre (CDC). The partnership signed on the sidelines of MEET ICT and BITEX 2017, will see Managed Security Services (MSS) added to VIVA’s extensive Cloud services portfolio providing enterprises of Bahrain a one-stop-shop for all communication and data security requirements based on Intel Security technology.
VIVA Bahrain CEO Eng. Ulaiyan Al Wetaid commented, “With more enterprises turning to cloud-based solutions to store critical business data, VIVA directed our focus to new data protection tactics that match the pace of Bahrain’s ICT developments. We will leverage our leading position, extensive expertise and strong presence in the marketplace to build a CDC which offers customers a full suite of security offerings that can evolve with their business.”
Tarek Jundi, managing director, Middle East & Turkey, Intel Security said “Enterprises have, rightly so, begun to make considerable investments in security, many a time opting to work through Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs). Backed by our industry leading integrated security platform, we have made considerable investments in the region to help service providers like VIVA and channel partners build a robust MSSP practice that will allow them to offer their customers unparalleled levels of security whilst providing both growth and profitability.”
