(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) United Arab Emirates,United Kingdom : Frost & Sullivan: Consumerisation of Smart Phones and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) are the biggest trends driving the Network Security Market in the Middle East With an increase in the number of Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), information security risks are becoming a major concern for organisations globally. Enterprises are swiftly adopting and deploying applications and new services to combat the same. In their quest to obtain high levels of security assurance and develop advanced intelligence technologies, organisations in the Middle East are increasingly adopting methods such as virtualisation and cloud computing. Over the past few years, this has led to increased Government investment in information and communication technology (ICT)-related projects in the Middle East and this is expected to proliferate further in future. To address these threats to enterprise security and brainstorm best-in-class Enterprise Security Solutions and Strategies, Frost & Sullivan convened the best minds in enterprise security at its Middle East Enterprise Security Summit 2012 on November 21, at Habtoor Grand Beach Resort, Dubai, U.A.E.
Held for the first time in the Middle East, the Summit was attended by CIOs, CISOs, CTOs, Vice Presidents, General Managers, Network Managers, Enterprise Security Architects, Internet Security Architects, Compliance Officers, and Department Heads from across a variety of industry sectors such as Banking, Finance & Insurance (BFSI); Telecom; IT; Manufacturing; Government; Education; Healthcare; Media and Entertainment; Retail; and Automotive and Logistics.
According to Frost & Sullivan, consumerisation of smart phones and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) are the biggest trends driving network security issues in the Middle East today. The network security market is in a high-growth stage. Frost & Sullivan anticipates that technology convergence, regulatory compliance, and continuous growth of network infrastructure will continue to drive up sales for security suppliers in the Middle East during the period 2012-2018.
Frost & Sullivan s Middle East Enterprise Security Summit 2012 Summit began with an inaugural address by Andy Baul-Lewis, Director, ICT Practice, Frost & Sullivan, describing the prevalent enterprise security landscape in the Middle East. Building security for electronic assets is one of the most critical tasks facing organisations today. In a converged world, where the threats of each system are multiplied; getting advice, sharing best practice, and talking to partners is a vital part of the construction process. This is what Frost & Sullivan endeavours to provide through this interactive Summit, stated Mr Baul-Lewis at the Summit.
