Commvault has partnered with AlJammaz Technologies in Saudi Arabia. AlJammaz Technologies will become an official Commvault Value Added distributor in Saudi Arabia following the agreement, which will help drive digital transformation, improve data protection, and increase cybersecurity for a wide range of businesses.
Commvault has experience in the region, having worked with key organisations including MEEZA, Bein Sports, Al Jazeera, Emirates Steel, Dubai Police and Dubai Municipality in UAE. Commvault has also collaborated with players in regional Telco, Finance, Government and Education sectors, including Saudi Telecom Company, STC and Jeddah University in Saudi Arabia, Garanti Bank and DenizBank in Turkey as well as Blue Label Telecoms in South Africa.
Commvault has recently redefined data protection to include early warning technologies that help to secure against threats before they happen, defend enterprise data if the environment is breached, and ensure recoverability so customers and their data remain resilient in the face of evolving cyber threats.
Offering early warning, in-depth threat monitoring, and cyber deception for production and backup environments that is unique to any solution on the market, Commvault can detect threats in as little as five minutes versus the industry average of 24 hours. Through early detection of zero-day and insider threats, Commvault technology helps protect data against breaches and cyber-attacks.
Sameh Hassan, Saudi Arabia Country Sales Manager, Commvault commented: “We have a new arsenal of capabilities that gives businesses a clearer line of sight into vulnerabilities and will protect their data across active and backup environments, including on the cloud or on-premises, so they can meet sophisticated cyberthreats head on. By partnering with organisations like AlJammaz Technologies, we will be able to provide wider and deeper support to businesses across multiple sectors within Saudi Arabia. We look forward to a long-term partnership to help protect organisations from increasing ransomware threats, whilst enabling businesses to accelerate their digitalisation journey.”
Adel Qahwash, General Manager, AlJammaz Technologies, said: “We are proud to partner with Commvault, an industry- player in the data protection and cyber security space. Many businesses in Saudi Arabia need greater data management solutions and Commvault’s technologies will help create enhanced security, efficiency, and business sustainability.”

Our technologies help accelerate innovation, whilst protecting companies most valuable assets – data.”
