DiData launches managed security services


Dimension Data has announced the launch of its managed security services (MSS) in Middle East and Africa.
Dimension Data’s MSS is a suite of managed and cloud-based services to help organisations establish compliance, minimise business impact, and reduce overall security risk in the face of today’s emerging threats.
“Our MSS offerings represent a new milestone in our security capabilities and will strengthen Dimension Data’s position as a leading managed security services provider in Middle East and Africa,” says Sean Duffy, security executive at Dimension Data Middle East and Africa.
“These services offload the burden of real-time network monitoring, advanced security analysis, and global intelligence correlation to Dimension Data, while allowing businesses to keep complete insight into critical business information.”
MSS is a global offering, currently delivered by Dimension Data’s 24×7 Security Operations Centres (SOCs). The services will be complemented by the extensive knowledge and experience of Dimension Data’s professional security services teams across Middle East & Africa.
MSS identifies and solves real-time security risks through a proven, continuous management process. Organisations can outsource the management of specific security activities and services so that they can achieve the business flexibility needed to manage IT infrastructure while focusing on core business objectives.
“Dimension Data’s MSS has been operating with great success for the past decade from its base in Australia, and has been recognised within the Dimension Data group as world’s best practice,” says Duffy.
“Now, we are delivering these services into our regions as a standardised global offering, cost-effectively and consistently. We have been able to achieve this by leveraging our global managed cloud infrastructure and services delivery capability, combined with the managed services and security expertise and delivery capabilities we already have in region.”
