Computer Associates has recently run a security workshop at Dubai Internet City (DIC) for solution providers from around the region. As a major vendor of internet security software, Computers Associates was keen to use the forum to educate partners on the different ways they can protect users from security threats with Computer Associates products.

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

“However our well-trained partners can protect regional businesses with CA e-business security solutions which address these issues by providing the most critical element to any e-business initiative – end-to-end security infrastructure,” he added.

Companies that attended the conference included: eTechSecurity, Intertec Systems. Khimji Ramdas Computer and CommunicationSystems and Softwarecomplex.com. The five day progamme was centred on using CA’s eTrust Internet Defence solution and looked at areas like content inspection, intrusion detection, virus protection, access control and the use of virtual private networks VPNs.

“IT security in the Gulf has changed dramatically with the increase of and dependence on the internet as a platform for business and government. By regularly exchanging our awareness of threats, vulnerabilities and protective mechanisms, we can better protect our customers. Using CA’s complete line of integrated eTrust solutions, regional IT security solution providers are able to safeguard their customers against the security challenges they face,” said Jorge Sebastiao, managing director of Bahrain-based security services company, E-Security Gulf Group WLL.

“Computer Associates Middle East puts great emphasis on educating our partners and customers on the latest trends in IT and this training session on internet defence is part of our ongoing efforts in this area. We intend to increase the size and frequency of our training sessions at our Bahrain, Dubai and Lebanon centres,” said Quresh Goga, manager of Computer Associates ME’s services and education division.
