Ooredoo has announced the launch of the new Ooredoo Cloud Email Security Service, as companies in Qatar grapple with a new generation of Internet security threats.
The telecom network said the new service was designed as an add-on to Ooredoo’s Cloud Security solutions to provide enterprise customers with an additional layer of security for business messaging.
Ooredoo said businesses in Qatar have been hit by a number of hacking attempts and malware attacks in 2015, many of them delivered via e-mail, “so the launch is particularly timely.”
Waleed al-Sayed, Ooredoo Qatar chief operating officer, said: “Our corporate customers have registered increasing concern about the level and range of online threats targeting their businesses in recent months, and we are working with international security leaders to ensure that companies that use Ooredoo’s SuperNet enjoy the highest level of security and protection. Ooredoo is a leader in managed services for companies in Qatar and security and back-up are areas where we are continuing to develop and excel.”
Ooredoo’s Cloud Email Security Service is a complete e-mail security platform that blocks spam and malware before it can infect the enterprise network and impact productivity. Ooredoo offers an advanced anti-spam and anti-virus service with bi-directional filtering capabilities that prevents the spread of viruses, phishing, worms, and spyware.
Also, Ooredoo offers extensive quarantine and archiving capabilities.
Ooredoo offers a complete enterprise grade e-mail security platform for organisations of any size from small businesses to universities, government departments, large enterprises, carriers, and service providers.
The Cloud Email Security Service will be the “ideal solution” for enterprises looking to protect valuable data content, prevent data leakage, keep internal IT infrastructure safe, and have a cost-efficient solution based on a monthly fee.
Purpose-built for the most demanding networks, Cloud Email Security provides a fast, accurate, multi-layered approach to blocking spam, malware, and preventing data loss, providing additional values-added functions such as data leakage prevention, identity based encryption (IBE), message archival and anti-blacklisting, in a single holistic solution.
Ooredoo said it has launched the service as part of its comprehensive investment in ICT Solutions for large, medium, and small enterprises across Qatar. The solution was designed to protect all of Qatar’s businesses with a cost saving and technologically advanced service, Ooredoo added.
