Dimension Data has launched its fifth business in the MEA region, Dimension Data Security, aimed at helping organisations in the region address the challenges of today’s rapidly evolving threat landscape.
MEA’s threat landscape is growing increasingly complex, and is driving new and surprising challenges for even the most hardened cybersecurity practitioners, says a spokesperson from Dimension Data Security. “It’s a catch-up game, and threats ranging from DDoS attacks, ransomware, advanced persistent threats, and even cybercrime-as-a-service, are seeing businesses struggling to stay ahead and protect themselves.”
“With this in mind, we are retaining our brand following the NTT integration in other regions across the globe. We currently have four businesses, namely Internet Solutions, Dimension Data, Britehouse and Merchants, and we are taking the leap to launch this business focusing specifically on security.”
He says the security business is built around four practices, namely consulting, secure infrastructure, secure hybrid cloud and secure access management. In addition, the new business is introducing a new product development capability to meet market requirements, particularly those in emerging markets.
Although security professionals are all trying to implement the best tools and solutions to address the slew of risks businesses are facing every day, the threat landscape is constantly evolving and the evolution of risk needs to be properly, and immediately, addressed.
“This means redefining how our clients think about risk and encouraging them to respond to the significant increase in attack volume with security measures that will actually prove effective in today’s threat environment,” says Tony Walt, managing executive for Dimension Data Security.
The new business aims to do exactly this, as well as address the cybersecurity challenges that modern businesses face today. “This will start with redefining how our customers view risk and encouraging them to respond to the tremendous increase in attack volumes, as well as the growing complexity of threats, through the application of security measures that will prove effective in today’s threat landscape.”
