Zain Jordan, part of the Zain Group, has partnered with Equiis Technologies, a provider of mobile communications for enterprises.
Under the terms of the agreement Zain Jordan will be able to
offer Equiis’ Secure Enterprise Communications
platform to its enterprise customers.
"Zain Jordan is delighted to have partnered with Equiis
Technologies. The Equiis technology enables companies and
organisations from the public and private sectors to connect
securely through mobile phones and Internet-enabled devices,
providing a secure application for voice and messaging," said
Yousef Mutawe, COO at Zain Jordan. "Having researched the
market we discovered that Equiis is considered among the safest
applications for businesses. We’re delighted to
now be able to offer our enterprise clients a solution that
allows professionals to take back control of their
communications whilst remaining secure."
The Equiis Secure Enterprise Communications platform is
described by the company as the most advanced securely
encrypted and compliant communications technology. In addition,
the partnership between the two also enables Zain Jordan to use
the Equiis offering to manage its own enterprise employees and
effectively control how its internal communications data is
stored, access and monitored.
"We are thrilled to begin working with Zain Jordan to
provide them, and their enterprise clients in Jordan, the most
effective and compliant method of secure communications," said
Derek Roga, CEO of Equiis. "It is an accepted business reality
that enterprise-wide mobile communications is increasingly
vulnerable to information leaks and potentially damaging
security breaches, meaning that businesses need to act."
Roga goes to add that "progressive organisations, such as
Zain Jordan, recognise the challenges, and realise that the
right strategy and technology can minimise the risks and
deliver a competitive advantage. This is the beginning of an
important relationship with Zain, and we’re
looking forward to evolving our partnership with them further
in the future."
In December Zain in collaboration with Cisco
reached a new milestone together, extending its IP/MPLS network
using Cisco’s latest technologies. The
milestone sets up Zain’s network for future
opportunities and new business models, as well as allowing
Zain’s network, which serves 45 million customers
across the Middle East and North Africa, to meet the ever
increasing demands of devices and growing connections.
