Smartworld, one of the UAE’s leading technology providers, has today announced that it has joined the EMEA Partner Programme of Menlo Security, Inc. (Menlo Security™), provider of the world’s first and only Cloud Security Platform built on an Isolation Core™. The Partnership provides UAE organizations the most effective way to eliminate all internet threats while protecting business and user productivity unlike traditional “detect and response” approaches that don’t protect against modern day threats such as ransomware, phishing and credential theft.
John Brown, Director of EMEA Channels at Menlo Security, made the following statement; ‘The need to provide a truly safe internet experience for users in the Middle East is more critical than ever. Our partnership with Smartworld, a Semi-Governmental Integrator with a tremendous customer footprint in a wide variety of sectors, is a fantastic early indicator of our intentions for the region. Traditional security appliances can’t cope with the complexity of modern day threats, and as a result customers have reluctantly accepted that there will be breaches. Menlo’s solution, built on a unique isolation core ™ delivers on the promise of cloud security by providing the most effective zero trust approach to preventing malicious attacks, and offering a seamless experience for end users that allows for safe, uninterrupted work while accessing the internet, SaaS or private applications.’
Menlo Security’s Insolation-powered Cloud Security platform separates the enterprise network from the public web while providing users with secure, low-latency connections to the Internet and SaaS applications. This enables safe viewing of content and documents by executing all active content in the Cloud, away from the endpoint, while providing native and seamless user experience across all endpoints, including mobile devices. Menlo Security stands behind its promise and offers a 100% malware protection warranty of up to $1 million – the first of its kind from a cloud security company for any customer that experiences an infection from any malware that passes through the Menlo platform.
Fahad Khursheed, Director Managed Services at Smartworld said: ‘As a semi-government company, Smartworld has been trusted by multiple government and private organizations when it comes to protecting their networks, devices, programs and data from digital threats. Our partnership with Menlo will improve our company’s positioning through enhanced cyber security offerings. Given the recent adoption of cloud and remote work policy, cloud-based network security will be the new normal for organizations to protect business space. We are excited to onboard Menlo Security and believe the Menlo Security broad product portfolio powered through cloud is the best way to secure enterprises from Internet threat and to achieve secure cloud transformation.’
Established in 2008, Smartworld is a joint venture (50/50) between Dubai Aviation City Corporation and Etisalat. Smartworld offers digital planning, implementation and operation services & solutions, which improve cost-line, accelerate growth and transform business models.
