ThinkOn takes a step toward Middle East and Africa expansion with strategic support from NAAMEA

ThinkOn Inc. announces a new partnership with NAAMEA GROUP, who will support the Canadian cloud service provider with their expansion into the Middle East and Africa. This partnership will deliver ThinkOn’s secure cloud infrastructure and data management solutions to local users in these regions. This expansion will enable Middle Eastern and African organizations with cutting-edge cloud technologies to protect data from ransomware and loss on their own soil, while leveraging solutions backed by industry leading software and international compliance authorities.

NAAMEA President and CEO, Emad Arafa Elfiky says, “We are looking forward to the partnership with ThinkOn to enable digital transformation strategies in region [and] to extend ThinkOn services to local governments, large enterprises, SMEs, education, healthcare, and e-commerce businesses […] and give them the choice to keep their data local or have additional disaster recovery backup in other geography. Together, we will build and manage ThinkOn nodes to provide fully managed compute and data management infrastructure facilities in the major cities and data centres in the region.”

“This new relationship with NAAMEA GROUP demonstrates ThinkOn’s commitment to offer our critical data centric services to an important region of the world,” says Craig McLellan, ThinkOn Founder and CEO. “We are excited to be working with NAAMEA on this initiative, as it combines exceptional market and customer awareness with service leadership in a way that will give local subscribers the data sovereignty they need while leveraging world-class cloud services to make their data thrive.”
