The demonstrations and presentations made at the stand were very well received by the attendees and provided a deeper understanding into the company’s IT solutions.
eHDF’s continuous innovation in products and services is the cornerstone of the company’s growth and customer service levels. The GITEX week focused on eHDF’s Disaster Recovery (DR) solutions which the company recently introduced. The enhanced DR solutions were introduced to support varied customer IT environments and business needs and include continuously available, Hot-Hot / Hot-Warm / Hot-Cold DR, whether On-site, Off site or Cloud-based, using storage technologies, database / applications technologies, in either physical or virtual environments.
“eHDF constantly endeavours to play an instrumental and supportive role in strengthening the development and sustainability of businesses and government organizations in the region. As such, we engage in many customer and industry forums, conduct market research and surveys to assess the market needs. Accordingly, we address such needs and align them with national agendas. As an example, we evaluated the results of the 3rd BCM survey that we conducted for assessing the stages of readiness and maturity of Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery in the region. The results revealed that 64% of Middle East-based survey respondents have established internal BCM policies, while 27% are considering issuance. Furthermore, for those who have it, a good portion does not have the ability to run drills and test the viability of their solution in a systemic and structured manner. These findings led us to developing the most comprehensive set of Disaster Recovery solutions and services that help customers manage their Governance Risks and Compliance (GRC) Requirements in a predictable manner,” said, Yasser Zeineldin, CEO, eHosting DataFort.
Commenting on being awarded the best Managed Service Provider of the year for the third year in a row, Mr. Zeineldin added, “We are grateful and humbled that the industry recognizes our efforts and customer focus. We would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to our customers, partners and dedicated employees who made this happen. Consistency is critical in our business and we keep our eyes on the ball all the time.”
eHosting DataFort has established itself as a market leader in the field of Managed Hosting and Cloud Infrastructure Services. Recently the company obtained Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) STAR Certification, becoming the 1st company in the region to achieve this acclaimed certification.
