Z Services Expands Partnership with TitanHQ to Provide New Cybersecurity Service

The United Arab Emirates-based managed security services provider, Z Services, has expanded its relationship with TitanHQ and will be offering further TitanHQ cybersecurity solutions to its customers to protect them from web-based threats and meet compliance requirements.

Earlier in 2018, Z Services partnered with TitanHQ and started offering its clients a new spam filtering solution – Z Services Anti-Spam SaaS – which was powered by TitanHQ’s spam filtering technology. The new service has proven to be a tremendous success and is helping Z Services’ clients block email-based threats such as spam, phishing emails, malware, and ransomware to keep their networks secure.

The success of the new service prompted Z Services to start offering two new TitanHQ-powered solutions to its clients: A web filtering SaaS offering powered by WebTitan and a new email archiving service powered by ArcTitan.

Both solutions have been combined into the Z Services MERALE solution which is focused on SMEs. MERALE offers SMEs enhanced protection against Internet threats and helps SMEs improve productivity by restricting access to certain categories of web content: Gambling, gaming, dating, social media, and adult websites, for example. The solution also helps SMEs comply with government and industry regulations.

The MERALE SaaS offering combines in-country email archiving, business productivity policies, in depth reporting, and audit-as-a-service as well as meet compliance requirements and improve their security posture. MERALE is being offered to SME’s throughout the MENA region as a service through Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

All TitanHQ technologies powering the solution were supplied in full white label form and have been re-branded, allowing Z Services to provide its own cost-effective, auto-provisioned, Internet protection and compliance service.

“With cybersecurity growing as a critical business concern across the region, there is a clear need to make security an operational rather than a capital expense. Hence the paradigm shift in the delivery of effective security solutions from the traditional investment and delivery model to an agile SaaS model through the primary connectivity provider of SMEs – the ISPs,” said, Nidal Taha, President – Middle East and North Africa, Z Services. “We believe that MERALE will be a game-changer in how small and medium businesses in the region ensure their protection, and as a subscription-based service, it removes the need for heavy investments and long-term commitments.”
