Cloud Constellation Corporation and Arabsat have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to develop a go-to-market strategy for enterprise and government customers in the Middle East, Europe, Africa and Central Asia.

Cloud Constellation’s SpaceBelt Data Security as a Service (DSaaS) is a patented, scalable, space-based cloud service for securing high-value and highly sensitive data assets by providing data storage in space and global, secure managed network services. SpaceBelt services provide data security that greatly mitigates the risk of a data breach by providing global isolation of a customer’s data from inherently vulnerable global terrestrial networks.

SpaceBelt comprises a constellation of 12 Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites with a redundant, self-healing optical ring for high availability. The SpaceBelt network communicates with secure access points located at enterprise, government and military facilities via connectivity with Geosynchronous Earth Orbit (GEO) satellites. Individual cloud storage satellites and constellations can be offered to address an organization’s storage and/or sovereignty requirements.

Arabsat offers the MENA region the full spectrum of broadcast, telecommunications and broadband services. Cloud Constellation will leverage Arabsat’s market position and expertise in delivering SpaceBelt DSaaS to a broad range of customers throughout the gulf region.
