Kuwait-based ISP Zajil has signed a partnership agreement with Zservices, the provider of local Zscaler cloud security services in the Middle East, to offer cloud-based web and email security services to its customers.
This service 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 Zscaler cloud infrastructure.
Khalifa I. Al Soulah, managing director and CEO of 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 ultra-low latency, high reliability and availability of the Zservices cloud infrastructure means end-users can enjoy a better browsing experience with near-zero downtime.”
Zservices has deployed Zscaler cloud nodes at the most strategic internet points in the Middle East, and the infrastructure is built to serve GCC and Levant with local cloud equipment within each country. This enables the company to offer regionwide web and email cloud services and logging, local traffic termination and end-user data privacy.
