Censornet selects Z Services as the exclusive MSP distributor for Middle East

Censornet has selected Z Services as its exclusive MSP distributor for the Middle East region as the company expands Censornet’s cloud into the region through the building of a new datacentre with the ability to provide the full breadth of Censornet’s platform from within the UAE.

Ed Macnair, CEO of Censornet

Ed Macnair, CEO of Censornet, said “MEA is one of the fastest growing cyber security markets in the world; the Middle East alone is expected to be a $29.9 billion industry by 2025. The cloud platform we have built at Censornet, which has been designed to provide the full spectrum of threat protection, is an ideal fit for businesses in this market. As one of the leading cyber security Distributors in the region, the partnership with Z Services is critical as we expand and help businesses in the market to protect themselves from cybercrime.”

Z Services is recognised across MEA as the leader in cloud security services. It is the only company in the region to offer an in-country, multi-tenant cloud security architecture. The exclusive partnership with Censornet allows Z Services to capitalise on new cloud infrastructure in the region and provide local resellers with the solutions and support needed to penetrate the market.

Censornet’s integrated cloud platform for email and web security, CASB, and adaptive MFA covers the major attack surface exploited by cybercriminals, vastly reducing costs and making security simple. It is ideally suited for resellers, providing a full suite of best in class security tools to help them reach the underserved SMB and enterprise markets in the region. Censornet will work in close partnership with Z Services to offer resellers and customers a local distributor in the MEA as part of its growth strategy.

Nidal Taha, CEO of Z Services, added “43% of Cyber Attacks target SMBs which are vulnerable due to the fact that they often lack the capability to protect themselves against cyberattacks and data breaches.2 Overly complicated, inadequate and expensive enterprise solutions may lead small businesses to skip cybersecurity altogether. Our partnership with Censornet will enable us to cater to the neglected SME market in the MENA region by offering them the in-region cloud security platform for email and web security in an affordable pay-as-you-go (PAYG) model. In addition, given our established partnerships with leading telecom across the region, customers will be able to avail Censornet offering through their local Internet provider.”
