Following the completion of the merger between Symantec and Veritas, visitors at Gitex 2005 will have an opportunity to meet the regional team behind the merged entity, all in one place for five consecutive days. The new company, Symantec, is unveiling its approach to delivering information integrity to the region’s businesses, demonstrating how end users can reduce the cost and complexity of securing their data. “Security and data availability are at the top of every CIO’s ‘to do’ list across the region. Gitex provides a forum for both technical staff and decision makers to meet the regional Symantec team and learn how to mitigate the risks of losing key corporate data to security threats or unplanned outages,” says Kevin Isaac, regional director for Symantec Middle East & North Africa. “A lack of information has been a major issue thus far in security and high availability solution adoption,” he adds. The vendor’s major objective for Gitex is to show CIOs how to quantify, in financial terms, the risk involved in losing data and give regional businesses the tools to benchmark their security and availability strategy against their peers and global standards. Furthermore, attendees who visit the Symantec stand will have the opportunity to meet with security expert Jeremy Ward and Nigel Beighton of Symantec Enterprise. As senior developers at Symantec, the pair has been largely responsible for a range of pioneering software, which will be demonstrated at the tradeshow. Ward has written the software for Symantec Inform solution, which utilises turnover figures and other basic information from the corporate user to calculate security vulnerability and provide risk models and mitigation of risk for both security and availability.
