Advanced threat protection needed as Gulf becomes prime target for cyber crime
October 8, 2014
Bit9 + Carbon Black, the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response, will underscore the importance of advanced protection amidst the Gulf’s rapidly evolving cyber threat landscape at GITEX Technology Week 2014 running from October 12 to 16, 2014 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
The average cost to remediate data breaches in the GCC is at around USD 5.4 million, reflecting the drastic business and economic impact of poorly-protected Information Technology assets. In the UAE, the region’s commercial hub, around 35 per cent of people are believed to be affected by cyber security.
During GITEX, Bit9 + Carbon Black will demonstrate Carbon Black the industry’s leading endpoint threat detection and response solution for SOC and IR teams. Carbon Black’s lightweight, real-time endpoint sensor delivers “always-on” visibility by continuously recording and maintaining the relationships of every critical action on every machine. The company will display its systems at the Starlink stand (A2-2).
“Critical factors ranging from the exponential growth of IT infrastructure to aggressive government-backed efforts to nurture knowledge-based economies have made the Gulf a tempting target for cyber criminals. Thousands of organizations worldwide are already benefitting from the enhanced security and compliance as well as lower operational costs made possible by our merged solution to endpoint and server security. We offer a proven strategy for the region to more effectively address this growing social and economic threat; GITEX is an excellent platform for us to showcase our technologies, techniques and products for implementing our formidable security blueprint,” said David Flower, Managing Director for EMEA, Bit9 + Carbon Black.
GITEX Technology Week was launched in 1981 and has since become the Information and Communications Technology business gateway to the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia Region. This year’s edition will showcase products, services and solutions from more than 3,700 technology companies. More information is available at http://www.gitex.com.
