Sophos to place spotlight on synchronised security at GISEC 2017
Sophos, a global leader in network and endpoint security, announced its participation at Gulf Information Security Expo & Conference (GISEC 2017) which will be held from 21-23 May 2017 at the Dubai World Trade and Convention Centre. The company will showcase its extensive security portfolio and focus on its synchronised security strategy.
“Given the scale and sophistication of attacks in the Middle East region, companies are looking for smarter and simpler IT security solutions. A recent Sophos-sponsored study developed by International Data Corporation (IDC) revealed that complexity is driving the need for integrated security in the region and it is one of the top priorities for CIOs and IT managers. The majority of the respondents agreed with the concept of linking network firewall and endpoint security for better insights and the acceptance was higher among large enterprises. Synchronised security is the new key for protection against cyber threats in the region,” said Harish Chib, VP MEA Sophos.
“GISEC is a perfect platform for Sophos to communicate our vision of ‘Synchronised Security’. We plan to highlight our latest innovation, Security Heartbeat, which 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. It is also a great opportunity for us to meet with key decision makers.” he added.
At the exhibition, the company will showcase its extensive portfolio of next-generation endpoint and network security solutions, including the recently launched Sophos Mobile 7, the latest version of the Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution that extends containerisation support for Android Enterprise, Sophos InterceptX, and the latest synchronised encryption solution, SafeGuard Encryption8, which can automatically respond to threat incidents from connected endpoint protection.
Sophos’ top local executives and security experts will be present at Stall B-100, Hall: ZAB5 and will engage with visitors, customers and channel partners, understand their security requirements, address their concerns and share their global experiences and success stories with them. Through presentations and demos at the stand, the company plans to give its customers a first-hand experience on the benefits of synchronised security.
