Ooredoo Qatar has highlighted the benefits of Zero Trust Exchange, a recent addition to its business portfolio, in the post-pandemic business world.
The cloud-based platform Zero Trust Exchange, developed by Ooredoo’s global business partner Zscaler, offers highly integrated security services. It is built for the needs of businesses that rely on a fast, secure user experience for their employees, delivering best-in-class security, scalability and performance for modern “work from anywhere” organizations.
The Zero Trust principle of “least privilege access” controls all traffic, providing extensive security. The platform is hosted locally at Ooredoo’s Tier-3 Qatar Data Centre, which is compliant with all local data protection and security regulations.
Featuring a proxy-based architecture for full inspection of encrypted traffic, the Zero Trust concept enables businesses to bring security and policies right up-to-date; replace traditional gateways; make appliance-based security obsolete; and transform network and security infrastructures in a modern, cloud-based way.
Ooredoo Qatar Chief Business Officer Thani Al Malki said: “We are delighted to have added Zero Trust Exchange to our already comprehensive business solutions portfolio. In this post-covid digital business environment — exciting times as we move in the direction of a cloud-based infrastructure with a large majority of organisations operating on a zero-trust strategy — it’s imperative we engineer our offerings to suit business needs and achieve our strategic goal of complete customer satisfaction.”
According to recent research, 72% of organizations now operate on a zero-trust strategy, and 76% of these are allocating new budgets to zero trust. At the top level, using a zero-trust platform offers reduced IT cost and complexity, as well as key capabilities, use cases and much more.
