Regional IT security expert intends to raise awareness about its security analysis capabilities and 24x7 local support services.
Help AG, a leading information security services and solutions provider in the Middle East, has announced its participation at GISEC, the Middle East's only large-scale information security platform, taking place from the 9th to the 11th of June, 2014. Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) have been plaguing Middle East organizations and Help AG, being a specialist in mitigating these attacks through analytics, prevention and detection, will focus on raising awareness about its capabilities in this domain.
Rising threats in the region have resulted in the implementation of national information security strategies, with organizations such as NESA and aeCERT in the UAE, QCERT and ictQatar in Qatar, and the National eSecurity Center in Saudi Arabia being set up. “Government regulations and compliance are major driving factors for information security investment but the prime concern for organizations is to protect their data and keep their vital IT systems up and running,” said Stephan Berner, Managing Director at Help AG.
The company has a long standing expertise in consultancy and implementation services for industry standards and will be presenting the newest developments on ISO27001:2013, which is the newest revision of the ISO 27001 standard for Information Security. At the company's stand (SM A-20), attendees will also have a chance to meet top executives from industry leading vendors Algosec, Blue Coat, RSA, Infoblox, CyberArk, F5, Symantec and FireEye, who are all Help AG vendor partners. The comprehensive portfolio being highlighted consists of the most advanced security products in the market and leveraging Help AG's integrated solution design approach, customers can integrate cutting edge technologies with end-to-end security functionality.
Besides highlighting its integration capabilities, Help AG intends to promote the local 24x7 support that it offers on all ranges of solutions it provides. As an certified and authorized support partner for a number of its vendor partners, Help AG is capable of delivering this support with a guaranteed quality of service matching the highest international standards.
Help AG's Security Analysis team will showcase some of the most recent developments from its zero-day-security research. With the largest team of technical auditors in the region and the highest number of Zero-Day Analysis releases of any Vulnerability Assessment practice in the region, the company has established itself as the leading vulnerability assessment provider in the Middle East.
Commenting on the company's second consecutive appearance at GISEC, Mr. Berner said,“As an organization that is solely focused upon IT security, GISEC is the ideal platform for us to engage with a very niche audience. We will in particular use our participation to access the market requirements and expectations of Managed Security Services (MSS) which we will be launching in the near future.”
GISEC will be held at the Dubai World Trade Center and alongside the exhibition, it will feature a two day conference packed with compelling panel discussions, key note addresses and insightful case studies. This year, the main focus of the event will be on addressing security concerns for IT, Oil & Gas, Banking & Finance, Government, Legal, Healthcare and Telecoms industries.
