10/09/2011

As mobiles devices and related threats proliferate, up-to-date security policies become imperative for Middle East businesses

Online PR News – 09-October-2011 – – Dubai - SonicWALL, provider of intelligent network security and data protection solutions, in its eight year of participation at GITEX, will highlight its SuperMassive™ E10000 Series of Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFW). With the evolving threats and continued evolution of computing trends, like adoption of virtualization, SaaS, mobility and Web 2.0 applications, SonicWALL’s team of experts will effectively demonstrate its comprehensive portfolio of Next-Generation IT Security solutions to address these burgeoning threats.

As enterprises embrace the capabilities of a truly mobile workforce and Web 2.0 applications begin to gain prominence in the workplace, cybercriminals increasingly seek to exploit vulnerabilities in these technologies. Smartphones and tablets are among the most important technological developments and the proliferation of these devices in corporate environments creates new and wider potential for data loss and leakage, whether by theft, unauthorized access or unauthorized transmission.

“In order for organisations to gain maximum benefits from the smartphone and tablet phenomenon, security is critical to enable businesses to reap the rewards many of these new devices offer,” said Shahnawaz Sheikh, SonicWALL’s Regional Director, Middle East, Africa and Turkey. “GITEX, this year, will serve as our platform to boost awareness among enterprises and IT professionals in the Middle East. This will be achieved through product and technical demonstration, knowledge exchange and discussions and interactive meetings. It will also be an opportune time to maximize partnership and interaction with new and existing customers.”

The company will announce new product and solutions during Gitex Technology Week 2011 and will showcase its Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) Series, WAN Acceleration Appliance (WXA) Series, SSL VPN, Continuous Data Protection (CDP) solutions, Email Security, Global Management System (GMS) and Universal Manage-ment Appliance (UMA). This underscores SonicWALL’s commitment to continued investment in intelligent network security and data protection and to providing its customers with a highly secure, accelerated and optimized network that drives business and employee efficiency.
