Ericom Software, a leader in Zero Trust cloud cybersecurity solutions announced its expansion of Ericom Global Cloud platform data center presence in the Middle East to support growing demand for Ericom Shield Remote Browser Isolation (RBI).The rate of cyberattacks using malware designed to exploit web browser vulnerabilities has been dramatically accelerating. These types of web and email based attacks use zero-day malware embedded in the content of websites to deliver ransomware, exfiltrate data, disrupt operations, and more. Ericom Shield RBI prevents 100% of web-based attacks by executing web content in a remote, isolated cloud -based container, sending only safe rendering information to a device’s browser. When users interact with the websites they are completely safe since no web content is ever executed directly on their devices.
Two of the latest data centers in the Middle East, in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and in Dubai, UAE, are deployed in Oracle’s Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), a market-leading platform capable of elastically increasing compute capacity and processing to accommodate changing data traffic needs.
“Ericom’s growing data center footprint in the Middle East is important for a number of reasons,” said Ravi Pather, Ericom Vice President, Europe and Middle East. “Meeting local data residency and sovereignty requirements means that that cloud-based services must retain data and logs in the region. Having multiple Points of Presence (PoPs) also allows us to deliver the performance and resiliency enterprises expect.”
