Saudi Telecom Company and Thales launch enterprise cloud encryption service

Trust and security enable business digital transformation helping achieve the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 objectives

Dubai, UAE – December 11, 2017 –  Thales, a leader in critical information systems, cybersecurity and data security, and Saudi Telecom Company (STC), the largest telecoms company in Saudi Arabia, announce the launch of a cloud encryption service for enterprise customers allowing them to protect and control their data in the cloud.

Thales signed a Cloud Service Provider agreement with STC to provide data encryption solutions through the STC cloud platform and to further develop secured Information Communications Technology (ICT) business in Saudi Arabia.

Enterprises are increasingly turning to cloud environments to help them save time and money. While these technologies are digitally transforming businesses, they present some challenges. Enterprise data is fair game for cybercriminals, regardless of operating environment, and meeting compliance and best practices requirements isn’t always straightforward.

Vormetric Transparent Encryption from Thales encrypts sensitive data before it leaves the enterprise and is saved in the cloud storage environment, enabling information security teams to establish the
visibility and control they need around sensitive assets. This solution ensures that data in the STC public cloud is secure and trusted by delivering seamless high performance encryption, access control and strong key management. 

Talal Albakr - Vice President Cloud Services at Saudi Telecom Company says: “Digital transformation is at the heart of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 for a strong, thriving and stable economy that provides opportunity for all. Our partnership with Thales is designed to deliver secure and trusted public cloud services to STC customers across the Kingdom and the wider Middle East region, allowing them to establish strong safeguards around their sensitive data and applications in the cloud, satisfying local compliance requirements and providing greater control and flexibility.”

Philip Schreiber, Regional Sales Director, at Thales eSecurity Middle East, Africa and South Asia says:
“It is a common misconception that by moving to the cloud, businesses are relinquishing all control of their data. By applying encryption and practicing secure encryption key management, companies can ensure that only authorized users have access to sensitive data. Even if lost, stolen, or accessed without authorization, encrypted data is unreadable and essentially meaningless without its key. STC have selected a best-in-class data encryption solution that not only ensures their customers remain firmly in control of their data but also ensures that data remains secure and trusted in their cloud environment.”
