Computer Associates has brought together some of its partners network to brief them on the cyber security threats facing the region.

The course of the five-day training program centred around CA’s e-Trust product suite addresses topics such as content inspection, intrusion detection, virus protection, access control, the use of virtual private networks and other issues relating to secure e-business.

“E-business opens the door to millions of end-users, exposing web sites, valuable corporate information, mission-critical business applications, and consumers’ private information to more risk than ever before,” said Hayssam El-Massri, Riyadh-based channel sales director with Computer Associates Middle East.

“But our trained partners can protect regional businesses with CA eBusiness security solutions which address these issues by providing the most critical element to any e-business initiative — end-to-end security infrastructure,” added El-Massri.

According to Jorge Sebastiao, managing director, E-Security Gulf Group, a participating CA partner, the IT security challenge facing many local companies is changing dramatically, as the Internet becomes an increasingly important business medium for local companies.

“By regularly exchanging our awareness of threats, vulnerabilities, and protective mechanisms, we can better protect our customers,” said Sebastiao.
