IT security consultants, Comguard have opened two new offices in the region. Working from a regional headquarters in Dubai Internet City and another office in Riyadh, the company will offer a range of vendor-neutral security solutions.

The company hopes to tap into the growing regional demand for IT security against a range of potential attacks, both internal and external.

“The relative personal safety found in a region like the Gulf unfortunately does not extend to the business community in the Middle East —the global reach of the Internet as well as the transience of the region’s workforce and its political nature actually raise the IT security risks of companies based here,” argues, Herbert Kamensky, the company’s managing director for the Middle East.

“Fortunately, the growing awareness about the need for a comprehensive security strategy, as well as the willingness of regional companies to invest in technology, make the Middle East an exciting and viable long-term market for Comguard. By investing directly in the region, we plan to greatly increase the peace of mind that regional executives have about IT security,” he adds.
