Ooredoo has continued to enhance its managed security service portfolio, in response to growing demand from Qatar companies looking to protect their businesses from hackers and cyber threats.

Ooredoo has been a pioneer of introducing the latest security technologies to Qatar, and its nationwide network of Ooredoo Data Centres are playing an important role in providing cloud and managed security services. According to the ‘Gulf Information Security Expo and Conference 2015’ report, more than half of the companies in the GCC are planning to increase their investment in IT security by at least 25% in 2015, in response to the new generation of security threats.

The survey also estimated that, despite the exponential growth of data within businesses in the region, only 47% of data is currently being protected. To help businesses reduce their exposure, Ooredoo has rolled-out a range of security upgrades in 2015, including enhancements to its popular Cloud-based security solution, the first cloud security solution in Qatar that integrates web, email, mobile and the latest channels of communication to combat cyber-attacks.
