East, July 12, 2009: ISIT AE, a company focused on designing, implementing and supporting enterprise class solutions to store, structure and secure strategic digital assets, has announced the launch of its information security operations in the Middle East.
ISIT AE will provide best-fit information security solutions and services to enterprises in the Middle East after careful study of its existing environment and future requirements. These services include providing expert advice, solution design, detailed proposals, implementation and knowledge transfer training and support. The company will also provide 24 x 7 customer and technical support, both on the telephone as well as on-site through experienced, vendor certified engineers.
“ISIT AE’s business strategy currently is to focus on the Middle East market. Even with the global financial slow down, we feel that the Middle East region holds tremendous potential for our solutions and services,” added Mahesh Vaidya, the CEO at ISIT AE. “Our information security practice is a framework of design and implementation of best of the breed security technology solutions, consultancy and training services around protection of information that is critical to business. Information security is strategically important for our business growth plans in the Middle East. It complements our existing storage offerings.”
ISIT AE provides solutions such as storage consolidation, data classification, information lifecycle management (ILM), storage and server virtualization, capacity optimization, backup and restore, high availability and disaster recovery, database recovery, WAN and application optimization, storage as a service and more. The company also provides a whole range of security solutions including governance, risk & compliance, data leakage prevention, firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, network access control, risk register, security information management, and much more.
ISIT AE also offers customers with market leading and comprehensive suite of storage solutions by integrating state of the art technologies from brands like NetApp, Symantec, Brocade, Iron Mountain, Data Domain, Tandberg Data, Solix, VMWare, Texas Memory Systems and Riverbed.
Vaidya continued, “The Middle East has been slightly behind the west in implementing sophisticated security solutions. It is still seen as a technological issue in several companies and not given its due importance. However, the situation is changing fast and industry sectors like the financial industry is now ahead in terms of a better understanding of information security. ISIT is quite adept in the use of information security standards such as ISO 27001 and have a thorough understanding of these standards, which helps position us as a trusted advisor to our customers and to help them overcome these challenges.”
ISIT AE’s data loss prevention (DLP) solutions are gaining importance in the region especially in the current business climate. DLP technology, for instance, can monitor, and sometimes, block employees as they try to send, modify or copy potentially sensitive data. The company also has a range of solutions for remotely backing up data even over low bandwidths using technologies such as de-duplication and encryption. Data on laptops can also be configured to self destruct in case of a theft of the device, hence minimising the risk of data loss.
