eHDF Underlines Critical Role of DR & Business Continuity
Managed IT Services Provider to Participate in Middle East Financial Technology Exhibition and Conference
Disaster recovery and business continuity solutions play a critical role in the financial sector with risk management, data security and compliance becoming top priorities for CIOs today, according to Yasser Zeineldin, CEO at eHosting DataFort.
Challenging economic times and the recent occurrences of natural disasters are compelling organisations to invest in business continuity solutions that protect vital customer and business data to ensure the undisrupted functioning of critical business applications.
Zeineldin’s comments coincide with eHosting DataFort’s participation at the Middle East Financial Technology Exhibition and Conference (MEFTEC), the world’s premier financial technology event for emerging markets focusing on the Middle East, Africa and the South Asia (MEASA) region.
To be held from 30 – 31 May at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC), the event will bring together financial technology leaders from across the MEASA region to share experiences, identify best practices and meet specialist IT vendors and service providers in a highly focused exhibition.
Yasser Zeineldin added: “We are seeing a huge demand for comprehensive business continuity solutions from the banking and financial sector. Organisations have realised the importance of the ability to continue operations with little or no downtime in the case of a disaster. By working with a service provider, they can be assured of a secure and reliable DR hosting environment. This is especially important for confidential and sensitive banking data and applications.
At MEFTEC, eHosting DataFort will be showcasing our entire portfolio of disaster recovery and business continuity services including disaster recovery sites, disaster recovery solutions, disaster recovery seats and BCM consulting.”
MEFTEC will focus on banking and financial software, as well as banking hardware, enterprise application software, IT infrastructure and IT services. The event will also see participation from leading vendors such as Oracle, Infosys, IBM, SAP and Microsoft.
