The Communications and Information Technology Authority (CITRA), according to International Integrated Computer Systems Group's Chief executive officer Essam Al-Khashnam, has granted the company the license to manage and provide cloud computing services for businesses, private hosting solutions, and devices for companies. This is the first license of its kind for Kuwait.
Among the measures is a new regulation that governs how sensitive and confidential information is stored and protected on cloud servers promulgated recently by the authority.
He continued, "our new licensed cloud services are being provided through support of Kuwait's third level data center in cooperation with our local and international partners, explaining that the necessary infrastructure will also be provided to store sensitive information in a secure manner, ensuring that all regulatory requirements are met.
With this development, ITS will become a strategic center that will serve all government agencies, such as ministries, oil companies, government agencies, the Central Bank of Kuwait, private sectors and financial institutions in general.
"Cloud services are strategically focused on expanding globally, and their extension and presence at the international level will provide customers with the ability to expand and compute efficiently through their distinct capabilities and infrastructure," stated Marwan Khalaf, Senior Director of Technical Support Services. A reliable data center infrastructure that enables the seamless integration of public and private clouds for digital business processes."
