Sophos to highlight synchronised security strategy at Gitex 2016
Sophos announced its participation at Gitex Technology Week 2016. The company will focus on its synchronised security strategy, showcasing its portfolio of endpoint, network and encryption security solutions at the region’s premier ICT event.
As part of its Gitex 2016 presence, Sophos will showcase its portfolio of security solutions including the newly launched Sophos Intercept X, as well as Sophos Clean and SG UTM, and its recently launched synchronised encryption solution SafeGuard Encryption8, which can automatically respond to threat incidents from connected endpoint protection. Since enterprise mobility management is now a growing priority, the company will also showcase Sophos Mobile Control 6.0, a container solution with Sophos Secure Email that enhances data protection.
Sophos will promote its newly launched partner programme for the Middle East and Africa region, which has been designed to address the needs of different types of partner and their engagement levels with Sophos.
“As the region’s largest ICT exhibition, Gitex is a perfect platform for Sophos to reach out to these companies and communicate our synchronised security strategy. We are excited to be able to share our recently announced Sophos Intercept X, a next generation endpoint security product that stops zero day malware, unknown exploit variants and stealth attacks, and includes an advanced anti-ransomware feature that can detect previously unknown ransomware within seconds. We will also be highlighting our innovative Security Heartbeat technology, which is at the heart of synchronised security and for the first time allows the endpoint and network security to actively and continuously share threat intelligence to effectively protect against sophisticated threats in a manageable way,” said Harish Chib, Vice President, Middle East and Africa, Sophos.
“Gitex 2016 is also a great opportunity to meet existing and potential customers and partners and share our highly innovative and simple-to-use and manage security solutions with them. And we will strengthen our channel network further by meeting and appointing new result oriented partners in countries where we would like to increase our market share and reach. Our security experts will hold presentations on the importance of implementing synchronised security and address security concerns customers and partners may have at the event.” Chib added.
