Help AG announces partnership with Aviatrix

Help AG, the cybersecurity arm of Etisalat Digital, today announced its partnership with Aviatrix, to help better enable secure adoption and usage of cloud services for businesses in a simplified manner.

Help AG’s partnership with Aviatrix enables both large enterprises and small businesses to easily integrate security tools in a public cloud environment such as the creation of encrypted tunnels between cloud services. Aviatrix also helps to efficiently connect legacy data centres to cloud while ensuring much-needed infrastructure, operational visibility across deployment processes and networking technologies spanning different cloud providers and services.

Stephan Berner, Chief Executive Officer at Help AG, said: “Rapid digital transformation has been crucial to survival for businesses during the pandemic. But as more enterprises tend to shift to the cloud, the challenges around securely managing these environments and avoiding potential disruptions continue to grow. Cloud does not change the requirement for security, but it changes how we deploy cybersecurity fundamentally.

“When public cloud infrastructure was designed and built, it was done by technical experts who were looking for minimal acceptable functionality. However, enterprises have very specific requirements for infrastructure and Aviatrix fixes a set of unique problems especially when running multi-cloud environments or connecting to legacy data centres. Together, we help better enable secure adoption and usage of cloud services through the use of innovative solutions that address confidentiality and control of data, control of identity and mitigation of threats.”
