Forcepoint is excited to announce the general availability of our newest data center in Dubai – enabling the growth and demand we are seeing for cloud delivered web security in the Middle East and North Africa.

This isn’t just another data center for us. Our approach to data centers is strategic – it’s not about how many we have, but where they are, and who we partner with for our data centers. To give our customers in this region the best security for their cloud infrastructures, we partnered with Equinix again at DX1 – a world class hub for the Middle East and North Africa in Dubai.

DX1 delivers the same gold standard in data privacy and compliance that we hold across all of our physical data centers.

Forcepoint is committed is to providing our industry leading cloud security solutions to the most sensitive enterprise and government customers; improving latency, and providing a superior localized end-user experience. And DX1 delivers the same gold standard in data privacy and compliance that we hold across all of our physical data centers.
