DSOA hires MessageLabs services
Dubai, September 24, 2008
Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority (DSOA) said MessageLabs has agreed to provide a comprehensive email solution that will enable DSOA to offer advanced managed services to its tenants and external clients.
MessageLabs is one of the UAE's leading email service providers and pioneer in email security and compliance.
The new set of products will enable DSOA to provide best services that protect, encrypt, and archive electronic communications. The new solution tailored by MessageLabs enhances DSOA's information security levels and protects its users from converging threats of viruses, spam, phishing and targeted attacks.
Abdul Salam Al Bastaki, director of IT and Services – DSOA, said: 'Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority is always on the lookout for innovative solutions to companies operating within the region's integrated Technology Free Zone.
Moreover, we are glad to embark on a major upgrade initiative to enhance the level of information security provided to our valued partners and clients.'
Electronic Communications have become a mission critical application that is vulnerable to an increasingly sophisticated range of online threats such as viruses, spam, inappropriate content, spyware, and phishing attacks.
These threats present real business risks such as impact to business continuity, loss of confidential information, legal exposure and failure to enforce regulatory compliance, all of which can have significant financial implications.
Gareth Palmer, regional sales manager for MessageLabs in the GCC, said: 'MessageLabs and its regional distributor - Computerlinks are pleased to work with Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority as they have earned their well-deserved reputation as a leading integrated hub for technology companies.
'With an annual growth of 400 per cent in the GCC region during 2007, we are confident that partnering with Dubai Silicon Oasis will boost our record growth rates and cement our leading market position in email security, continuity and encryption services.'
