Menlo Security and Smartworld announce partnership in Middle East

Smartworld, a leading technology provider in the United Arab Emirates, today announced its participation in Menlo Security, Inc.’s EMEA partnership program. (Menlo Security™), provider of the first and only cloud-based isolation security platform Core™. This partnership provides organizations in the UAE with the most effective way to counter all Internet threats while protecting business and user productivity, unlike traditional detection and response approaches that do not protect against modern threats such as extortion, phishing, and account theft.

John Brown, director of Menlo Security’s EMEA channel (Europe, Middle East and Africa), said the need to provide truly secure Internet access to users in the Middle East is more urgent than ever. Our partnership with Smartworld, a semi-governmental integrator, with a huge customer base in various sectors, is a fantastic first indication of our intentions in the region. Traditional security measures do not keep pace with the complexity of modern threats, making customers reluctant to accept violations. Menlo’s solution, based on a unique isolation core™, delivers on the promise of security in the cloud by providing the most effective zero-touch approach to prevent malicious attacks and provides a flawless user experience that allows you to work safely and seamlessly while accessing the Internet, SaaS or private applications.

Based on the Menlo Security Cloud, the security platform separates the corporate network from the public network and provides users with a secure connection to the Internet and SaaS applications with minimal delay. This allows you to view content and documents securely while all active content in the cloud runs remotely from your device, providing a natural and seamless user experience on all devices, including mobile devices. Menlo Security lives up to its promise and offers a 100% anti-malware guarantee of up to $1 million – the first of its kind as a cloud security company for any customer facing a malware infection that goes through the Menlo platform.

Fahad Khurshid, Smartworld’s Director of Managed Services, said Smartworld is recognized as a semi-public company by many public and private organizations for protecting their networks, devices, programs and data from digital threats. Our cooperation with Menlo will strengthen the position of our company by offering more cyber security. With the recent introduction of cloud computing and remote access policies, cloud-based network security will become the new standard for organizations in the commercial space. We are excited to integrate Menlo Security and believe that Menlo Security’s wide range of cloud-based products is the best way to protect businesses from Internet threats and ensure a secure transformation of cloud technologies.
