Corero Network Security has signed a distribution deal with the UAE-based value added distributor, Shifra. According to the agreement, the distributor will extend its portfolio of security solutions in the region.
“We are excited to partner with a leader like Shifra and look forward to our products and solutions having an extensive reach,” said Paul Lawrence, VP International Operations, Corero. “The Gulf represents a prime area for growth due to its economic strength and widespread usage of online media. Organisations in the region are looking to strengthen their security measures to counteract potential threats, where traditional security solutions are proving insufficient.”
Companies in the UAE are looking to invest and implement countermeasure products and services to block cyberattacks. As more companies seek to avoid DDoS and other malicious attack activity, Corero provides on-premises DDoS defence technology that inspects, filters and removes attack traffic, while allowing good user traffic to pass un-obstructed; allowing traditional security solutions to operate as intended, says the company.
Ahmad Elkhatib, Managing Partner, Shifra said, “The rise in cyber incidents shows just how far the threats have escalated and the Middle East is no exception. A new wave of sophisticated cyber-attacks exists in the region and it has the potential to cripple petrochemical, finance and oil and gas companies,” said Elkhatib. “We have partnered with Corero to offer a range of security solutions within this market because we know threats that organisations face are real and serious.”
