BlackFog expands into the Middle East with eHosting DataFort
eHDF is one of the pioneers in Data Centre, Managed Hosting & Cloud Infrastructure Services in the Gulf region
Cheyenne, Wyoming, October 26th 2020 – BlackFog, Inc. have announced they are continuing their global expansion into the Middle East and have entered into a strategic partnership with eHosting DataFort (eHDF), one of the leading Cloud Hosting and Managed Security Services providers in the UAE.
Established in 2001, and part of the Midis Group, eHDF is one of the pioneers in Data Centre, Managed Hosting and Cloud Infrastructure Services in the Gulf region. As the UAE’s leading IT Security Services Provider, eHDF is committed to providing state-of-the-art managed security solutions for their customers.
In recent months they have noticed an uptick in ‘privacy literacy’ in the region and they anticipate privacy will be a high growth area in the coming months. Partnering with BlackFog enables them to address increasing customer concerns around data privacy whilst offering a unique preventative technology to mitigate the risks associated with cyberattacks.
“As we are growing our security 360 practice, non-perimeter defence is one of the pillars we are addressing. There are many tools in the market that currently focus on perimeter defence, offering protection from cyberattacks, but few focus on data loss and privacy,” said Waleed Heloo, General Manager of eHDF.
“We believe BlackFog’s unique on-device approach to preventing data exfiltration, and its technology, will become an important part of our security portfolio. BlackFog enables us to address our customers’ current concerns around privacy, securing remote employees, preventing data loss and breaches and preventing ransomware attacks,” commented Waleed Heloo.
“As we continue to increase our global footprint, we are excited to announce our first partnership in the UAE with eHDF. As a leading MSSP in the Gulf region with a deep commitment and understanding of the importance of data privacy and regulatory compliance, we are confident they are the right partner for our continued expansion. We look forward to working with them as we introduce BlackFog Privacy to their growing customer base,” said Dr. Darren Williams, CEO and Founder of BlackFog.
