Cisco to exhibit threat protection capabilities at Gitex

DUBAI, October 12, 2016

Cisco, a global technology leader, said that it will showcase its advanced threat protection capabilities at the upcoming Gitex Technology Week 2016, in Dubai, UAE.

The event, a major technology exchange and marketplace, will take place from October 16 to 20, at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

Cisco will display its ‘Threat–centric Security’, which includes threat detection, defence and secure remote access, said a statement from the company.

The company will use Gitex as a platform to exhibit its advanced threat protection capabilities across the entire attack continuum – before, during, and after an attack, it said.

At the event, Cisco plans to demonstrate how an integrated threat defence architecture can help businesses see 100 per cent of their extended networks and defend it faster. Cisco makes security effective by making it simple, open and automated. It offers intelligence-led security in order to reduce time to detection and time to resolution via Talos, which has essentially the biggest security research team focused on threat intelligence, globally, said a statement.

Intelligence must be shared and span the extended network and new, connected devices – empowering security technologies and security services teams with intelligence that is actionable and specific to the organisation, it added.   

Scott Manson, cyber security leader for Middle East and Turkey, Cisco, said: “Ever-expanding connectivity, digitisation and the Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming our world, creating new business models through greater speed, efficiency, and agility.”

“Security is foundational to seizing these emerging opportunities. Security must be everywhere – embedded into the heart of the intelligent network infrastructure from the service provider, throughout the extended enterprise network, and across supply chains,” he said.

“Security needs to be as pervasive as the IoT itself. This requires a new architectural approach and active engagement at the highest levels within organisations,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
