UAE telecom operator Etisalat has strengthened its position in the region’s security services space with the commercial launch of a new Managed Web Security Service.
The Managed Web Security Service, the flagship of Etisalat’s extensive managed security services portfolio, allows businesses to safeguard their organisational web infrastructure and resources from malicious web traffic, viruses, spywares and other damaging data capture.
Etisalat’s Managed Web Security Service uses cloud-based Security-as-a-Service to deliver a high performance multi-tenant, fully logged service which helps organisations to secure web traffic from any location in the world including Internet gateways, branch offices, data centres, home workers and mobile road warriors.
Abdulla Hashim, Senior Vice President, ICT at Etisalat, says the new Managed Web Security Service would result in true business continuity and the avoidance of “compromising situations” for organisations.
“Leveraging the paradigm shift in the ICT environment, Etisalat continues to lead from the front and further broaden its market space and footprint into the managed security domain,” he says.
Powered by ZServices (Zscaler, Middle East Cloud), Etisalat’s Managed Web Security Service delivers businesses with tools to control web security, including URL filtering, advanced threat protection, inline anti-virus and anti-spyware.
