Dubai-based vendor incubator Vesta has added network security firm DeepNines to its growing vendor portfolio. DeepNines specializes in front-end network security with solutions that sit in front of the router and protect the system from denial of service attacks. “In our continuing efforts to bring the latest cutting-edge technologies to the Middle East arena, we at Vesta are pleased to announce that we have been appointed as the official Middle East and Africa representatives of DeepNines and have now added the product to our portfolio,” said Steven Brown, Vesta CEO. Brown believes that DeepNines’ front-end router security will prove to be the answer for companies that are looking to shore up their network against attacks or intrusions. “DeepNines fills a void where there is no product of its type right now in the market. The most vulnerable part of the network is the router — all the security sits behind the router and not in front. DeepNines has spent three years developing a solution that sits in front of the router and is able to stop the majority of network attacks.” Vesta will soon roll out a sales drive to drum up demand for DeepNines’ solutions, and Brown claims that companies will like what they hear. “Most of this region’s businesses are protected by Cisco products, and many are worried about the vulnerabilities that Cisco has discovered in its kit over the last few months. DeepNines offers immediate peace of mind, and businesses will notice immediate improvements in both quality of network service and ability to protect their assets.” Vesta is also pushing DeepNines as a value-add to systems integrators partnered with Sun or Cisco. “Both Sun and Cisco are recommending that this product be sold as part of their solutions, so we want to work with their partners to drive DeepNines in the marketplace. Pickup in the rest of the world has been dramatic and we also believe adoption here will be very rapid,” concluded Brown.
