At GITEX, the managed security services provider, ixtel has announced SaaS-based vulnerability management platform in partnership with edgescan, which detects network and application vulnerabilities on an on-going basis.

Many customers are faced with the reality of having an increasingly high number of systems, both internal and external that need to be regularly tested, it’s much too demanding to manage these assessments using consultants or with a desktop scanning tool.
“A hosted approach backed with long experience in the field enables a much wider range of organisations to have access to tools for more consistent management of security and regulatory priorities,” said Mehdi Quraishi, Chief Executive Officer, ixtel. “With this SaaS based platform, organisations finally have visibility and accountability into their risk and compliance profiles. This enables organisations to implement enterprise-level security without enterprise-level overheads or costs. This new product eliminates current barriers of managing an on-going and complete risk-based information security program, including the lack of security expertise, resources and tools.”
At the show, Ixtel has also announced its partnership with Qumu to bring innovative video solutions to the GCC region.
Qumu offers a secure, flexible and scalable video content management platform that includes advanced video capabilities for enterprises, media companies and public institutions.
