ComGuard, the Middle East region’s leading IT security solutions provider announced recently its participation at GITEX Saudi Arabia, at the Riyadh Exhibition Center from 24 to 28 of April 2005. The company also announced its plans to pump resources into the Kingdom in support of its business partners and customers to gain market share in the region’s fastest growing technology market. “We have doubled our efforts this year to gain market share in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, an economy that is growing at an estimated rate of 9% this year, and a technology market worth upwards of US$4.6 billion,” says Herbert Kamensky, ComGuard’s CEO. “Our commitment to the Kingdom is manifest in our increasing support and resource allocation towards our business partners, who will be equipped with the latest security products, training and technical support, to better position themselves against fierce market competition,” he adds. Saudi Arabia remains the region’s largest market for the sales of leading edge technologies. Sales of PCs and notebooks continue to grow, while Internet use and e-commerce are set to increase dramatically over the next few years, driving demand for all related hardware and software applications. According to Madar Consultancy Group, e-commerce is set to explode in the region, yet especially in Saudi Arabia. Madar predicts that e-commerce revenues in the Kingdom will increase from US$1.5 billion in 2002 to US$8 billion in 2005. To meet this increased demand, ComGuard has signed distribution agreements with leading international security product vendors such as Juniper Networks, Netbotz, PointSec, RSA, Argus and many others, all of which have been made available to business partners in the Kingdom. ComGuard has also extended its full range of technology infrastructure security consulting services into the country to protect leading enterprise and organizations against the increased number of internal and external threats. “The intense modernization drive undertaken by the government of Saudi Arabia, the increased reliance on technology to manage mission critical business processes, combined with internationally accepted standards of operation being adopted, such as the Basel II financial institution requirements, have driven market demand for our solutions,” continues Kamensky. “ComGuard is uniquely positioned to provide cutting edge security software packaged with the expertise and consultancy services that add value to existing technology infrastructures, that help enterprise meet the threats of the future while making full use of past technology investments.” Committed to redefining relationships with client organizations, ComGuard is providing solutions to enable customers to take the maximum advantage of their whole infrastructure. This would be done by ensuring that customers and partners are equipped with the knowledge essential for optimising their investment; offering significant performance and total-cost-of-ownership advantages over competing solutions; offering the complete spectrum of services such as vendor services, support services, professional services, consultancy services including external network assessment, internal network assessment and security policy audit, implementation services and others. The company’s drive to offer totally integrated security solutions comes at a time when the convergence of physical and information security requirements is becoming a strong and widespread trend for integrated end-to-end security. Government agencies and private corporations worldwide are seeking powerful physical and information controls to safeguard all their assets and functions.
