Forcepoint is opening a new data centre in Dubai, offering Forcepoint Cloud Web Security to organisations looking to utilise in-country secure cloud services locally. 

The Dubai data centre also offers customers within and nearby the UAE the ability to receive web results more quickly thanks to low latency. In addition, the new location addresses need from organisations (public sector and enterprise) who handle sensitive information and prefer content to be in close proximity.

Ozgur Danisman senior manager sales and engineering MENA at Forcepoint commented, “We’re delighted to be able to bring secure cloud services to customers and channel partners in the UAE and surrounding regions, through our best-in-class product, Forcepoint Cloud Web Security. This local investment will certainly have a positive impact and shows our trust and commitment to the UAE economy and GCC. The global threat landscape is in a permanent state of change and having a resilient and advanced local offering will give our customers peace of mind that their data is located within their region.”

Mahmoud-Samy Ibrahim, area vice president for the Emerging Region at Forcepoint added, “The opening of this data centre represents a milestone for Forcepoint’s continued investment in the region, as its global footprint grows. The cybersecurity industry in the Middle East is undergoing a period of drastic change and customer demands for security are shifting alongside it. It is imperative that Forcepoint is able to provide advanced security solutions that meet and exceed these demands and enable customers from different industries to defend against sophisticated attacks.”
