Vercara operates a cutting-edge regional DDoS mitigation and application security data center right in Dubai. This facility not only upholds data sovereignty but also guarantees low latency, providing a significant advantage to companies throughout the Middle East. This local presence empowers Vercara to offer clients end-to-end protection against the most common threats targeting web-based services and infrastructure, including the OWASP top 10 threats, volumetric DDoS attacks, and application-level DDoS attacks.

Additionally, Vercara’s 15+ Tbps of DDoS mitigation is one of the largest dedicated data scrubbing networks in the world and is supported by unparalleled 24/7 human expertise and hands-on guidance. This robust offering will enable ZainTECH customers to maintain their online presence, reduce the threat of theft, protect their infrastructure, and keep their services accessible to the public.

Commenting on the partnership with Vercara, Andrew Hanna, CEO of ZainTECH said, “Securing digital assets and networks is one of the single most important areas in digital transformation, and protection at every level of connectivity, from devices to DNS, IP, and applications, is of paramount importance. Our partnership with Vercara is set to further bolster our cybersecurity defenses, empowering our customers to benefit from the exponential gains of digitalization, while minimizing the risk of cyber threats.”
