InfoWatch, the leading global player in DLP solutions space expanded its footprint in Middle East by entering into a strategic partnership with ATCOM to offer InfoWatch Data Leak Prevention (DLP) solutions in the UAE and Qatar by the end of August 2013.
Without such solutions in place, the risk of data loss continues to grow in line with data volumes, which are growing exponentially. InfoWatch DLP solutions are designed to monitor information flows and to protect organizations’ confidential data from leaks and unauthorized distribution.
Natalya Kaspersky, CEO of InfoWatch Group said, “We are pleased to formalize our on-going collaboration with ATCOM, who we regard as one of the top IT solutions suppliers in the region. The partnership marks an important step to boost our services and solutions offered in the UAE and Qatar, where protection against data leaks has become a non-questionable need for businesses sustainability.”
“In the near future, we expect that DLP systems will become a standard piece of information security within organisations. As a result, the information security sector will significantly increase. To support this growth we need to have strong partners in the region,” she added.
Since 2011 InfoWatch and ATCOM have collaborated on implementing a variety of successful projects for high profile customers in the banking sector, such as First Energy Bank, and various government institutions in Bahrain. During 2012 Bahrain witnessed a rapid growth in the number of companies adopting data loss prevention (DLP) measures with over 15 solutions implemented across a number of leading companies in both public and private sectors, according to InfoWatch Research Center.
“After carefully analyzing various DLP solutions vendors in the market, we identified InfoWatch as the best DLP solution provider in the industry due to their strong reputation and proven track record in the region. We highly value our partnership with InfoWatch and we see it as a win-win situation for both firms that will enhance our end-to-end network security solutions portfolio and will secure significant growth for InfoWatch business in the GCC,” said Bilal Al Zamgan, General Manager at ATCOM .
