Cloud Constellation and ARABSAT Shake Hands in the Sky and Partner for Space-Based Cloud Service

Ensuring that a huge base of enterprise and government customers in the Middle East, Europe, Africa, and Central Asia have their data safely secured is no small task. Despite the challenges these countries are now safer thanks to a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between Cloud Constellation Corporation and Arab Satellite Communications Organization (ARABSAT). SpaceBelt services represent a major change in 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.

Cloud Constellation Corporation and Arab Satellite Communications Organization (ARABSAT) announced they 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 and ...

  • A constellation of 12 satellites in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) is networked 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 satellites (GEO).
  • Individual cloud storage satellites and constellations can be offered to address an organization’s storage and/or sovereignty requirements.


ARABSAT is the only satellite operator in the MENA region offering 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.

Wael Al-Buti, chief commercial officer of ARABSAT said that their collaboration with Cloud Constellation Corporation is coming from a profound belief in the importance of data security. They are very proud to be working with Cloud Constellation’s innovative solution to deliver best-of-class data security services. 

Dennis R. Gatens, vice president of channel management and marketing, Cloud Constellation Corporation, said they are pleased to be partnering with such a highly recognized and respected brand as ARABSAT. ARABSAT’s customers represent such a geographically diverse profile that they are confident their joint go-to-market effort will result in a great appreciation for their combined capabilities and a strong demand for SpaceBelt services.
