A host of security vendors have been signed up to serve the new region based out of Dubai
EMEA distributor the Nuvias Group has added a fourth region, MEA, to its regional EMEA structure.
The other three Nuvias Group regions are Northern, Central and Southern Europe. Nuvias has acquired SCD, a distributor operating out of Dubai.
The new office will now act as a hub for Nuvias’ MEA activities, covering all parts of the Gulf Co-operation Council area, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Nuvias was established in July 2016. Also announced is the setting up of the Nuvias Cyber Security Practice at the Dubai office, which includes vendors Unitrends (cloud empowered continuity solutions), Malwarebytes (advanced malware prevention and remediation), Black Duck (open source security and management) and Netskope (cloud data loss prevention).
Other recent vendor signings for Nuvias in the MEA region include JetNEXUS (load balancing), Lifesize (videoconferencing) and Tintri (VM-aware storage for virtualisation and the cloud).
Nuvias has already recruited several new staff for the MEA office, bringing the current total up to 16.
Paul Eccleston, head of Nuvias Group, said: “MEA is a very important part of the region and a significant opportunity for us, our vendor partners and our customers.
“We have been working hard to bring the cyber security, advanced networking and unified comms capability of Wick Hill and Zycko to this region. With the acquisition of the business in Dubai, operating across the region, this is an exciting development for Nuvias and we look forward to bringing more capability and vendors to the region quickly.”
