Global cybersecurity company Forcepoint hosted its channel event to update partners on the latest product developments and strategic direction of the human-centric solutions the firm offers. Hosted in Dubai at the Five Palm Hotel, the event was attended by delegates from KSA, UAE, Egypt, Kuwait, and Oman.

During his keynote session, Oni Chakravartti, VP, Global Channel Sales, Forcepoint, said, “This event brought our channel partner community under one roof to celebrate their invaluable contribution to the brand’s success and growth across the Middle East. Forcepoint’s human-centric approach to security enables our customers to protect their people and critical data against the most sophisticated attackers, while freeing them to conduct their business in the most efficient and agile way possible.
“Digital transformation offers huge opportunities but also presents great challenges, and by enabling our partners to assist CISOs to manage network security centrally, in a dynamic and multi-cloud manner, we know we are setting them up for great success.”
