The onboarding of MCS hopes to enhance F5’s ability to deliver its services and solutions across Egypt.
F5 has signed a new distribution deal with Mideast Communication Systems (MCS) in Egypt. According to the deal, MCS is now part of F5’s Unity+ Partner programme, which has been specifically designed to address the evolution of F5 market and partner business models.
F5 powers applications from development through their entire lifecycle, across any multi-cloud environment. The onboarding of MCS hopes to enhance F5’s ability to deliver its services and solutions across Egypt.
The union will be particularly beneficial for F5 and MCS’ continued support of the government’s transformational Digital Egypt plan, which is a key component of its ICT Strategy and 2030 Vision.
F5 is already delivering a wide range of services under the Digital Egypt umbrella, including project work related to modernising digital infrastructures and processes across the government, telecoms, military, education, energy, finance, and government sectors.
Commenting on the deal, Tarek Shabaka, CEO of MCS, said: “MCS is focussed on delivering comprehensive information security solutions and professional consultation services for all business sectors in Egypt. We welcome the new partnership with F5 and look forward to a fruitful collaboration. Together, we have the potential to transform the application landscape through the delivery of integrated solutions. We are also extremely well-positioned to help Egypt meet its wider ICT transformation targets through our work across all sectors.”
Nasser El Abdouli, Director of Channel Sales for the Middle East, Turkey and Africa at F5 remarked: “MCS joins us as a value-added distributor at an important time for F5 in Egypt. More than ever, our customers are demanding seamless, rapid, secure and personalized experiences. At F5, we empower organizations to get their apps to market faster, protect their business from existing and emerging threats, adapt quickly to changing conditions, and harness the power of AI to make better business decisions. MCS will be central to delivering our solutions and services at scale in Egypt.”
“MCS has both the track record and expertise to powerfully enhance our go-to-market strength in Egypt, which is an increasingly important part of F5’s regional plans,” said Mamduh Allam, Regional Director for Saudi Arabia and North Africa at F5.
He added: “F5, with the addition of NGINX and Shape Security, now has the most comprehensive set of application services in the industry. Importantly, we can flex to whatever cloud is needed for the job, including virtual machines, container-native, SaaS, and purpose-built hardware. Moving ahead, MCS will be an important ally as we seek to realise a future where applications, like a living organism, can naturally adapt based on the environment. It will grow, shrink, defend, and heal itself as needed. In other words, the combination of application services, telemetry and automation will enable it to become a truly adaptive application.”
