Focus on establishing centralised systems in Mideast firms
Jeddah, August 26, 2014
Al Falak Electronic Equipment and Supplies, a softwares products division, conducted a session to educate companies on how to establish a centralised system within their organisations.
The implementation of a centralised access system and comprehensive security solutions for mainframe enterprises are leading to increased productivity and enhanced efficiency of companies and organisations in the Middle East region, according to an expert.
Stanley Hibbert, technical manager, said that across the complex information technology (IT) environment, end users are faced with a multitude of different account names, authentication requirements and associated (complex) password rules, he said.
This results in continued pressure on IT helpdesk organisations to spend much of their time responding to password reset requests instead of attending to and supporting real IT problems.
The complexity is further compounded by the deployment of cloud and mobile applications. An organisation must therefore implement a centralised access management and simplify password management of user accounts to address the challenge.
A centralised system helps enhance employees’ productivity, said Hibbert. The company also showed the benefits of the comprehensive Vanguard security solutions for mainframe enterprises.
Al Falak also recently relaunched the Vanguard brand throughout the GCC region and has successfully reestablished its presence as a leader in the IT market, particularly in the mainframe system security domain.
The session was conducted during the recently concluded Gulf Information Security Expo and Conference (Gisec), which is an annual event which aims to increase information security awareness in the region, provides numerous opportunities for professionals, industry leaders and stakeholders to gain insights and share expertise with each other.
It showcased the latest market trends, services, innovative IT security systems and other emerging technologies including virtualization, cloud computing and social networking. - TradeArabia News Service
