Sophos to fo­cus on ‘syn­chro­nized se­cu­rity’ strat­egy at GITEX 2016

Kuwait Times - - TECHNOLOGY -

Sophos will be par­tic­i­pat­ing in GITEX Tech­nol­ogy Week 2016, which is be­ing held in Dubai from Oc­to­ber 16-20, 2016. The com­pany will fo­cus on its ‘syn­chro­nized se­cu­rity’ strat­egy, show­cas­ing its ex­ten­sive port­fo­lio of next-gen end­point, net­work and en­cryp­tion se­cu­rity so­lu­tions at the re­gion’s premier ICT event.

“With the in­crease in so­phis­ti­cated at­tacks across the re­gion, com­pa­nies are look­ing for smarter and sim­pler IT se­cu­rity so­lu­tions. As the re­gion’s largest ICT ex­hi­bi­tion, GITEX is a per­fect plat­form for Sophos to reach out to these com­pa­nies and com­mu­ni­cate our ‘syn­chro­nized se­cu­rity’ strat­egy. We’re 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(tm) tech­nol­ogy, which is at the heart of syn­chro­nized 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 re­sults-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 syn­chro­nized se­cu­rity and ad­dress se­cu­rity con­cerns cus­tomers and part­ners may have at the event.” Mr. Chib added.

As part of its GITEX 2016 pres­ence, Sophos will show­case its broad port­fo­lio of se­cu­rity so­lu­tions in­clud­ing the newly launched SophosIn­ter­cept X, as well as Sophos Clean and SG UTM, and its re­cently launched syn­chro­nized 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 pro­gram 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.

Se­nior global ex­ec­u­tives and se­cu­rity ex­perts from the com­pany will be avail­able at the Sophos stand D1-10, Hall 1 to meet with cus­tomers and part­ners, ad­dress the chal­lenges they face and share the lat­est se­cu­rity trends and global suc­cess sto­ries with them.
