GCC network solutions provider Al Falak has struck a deal with Netasq, a major European manufacturer of networking security appliances, to further boost its portfolio of integrated solutions for networking security in the Middle East. Ahmed Ali Ashadawi, president and CEO at Al Falak, said: “We were looking for a wireless solution portfolio that combined unparalleled security with extensive mobility and flexibility features. A broad evaluation of various wireless products convinced us of the superiority of the Netasq products range, which perfectly met our requirements.” “Besides ensuring secure Internet connectivity, the Netasq solutions will allow us to boost revenues and develop long-term partnership with existing and potential clients in the market,” he added. “Even as wireless networking becomes the preferred networking medium for a growing number of companies, it is essential that reliability and security requirements are not overlooked in the process. By combining network and application firewall, VPN and content filtering functions with a unique integrated real-time intrusion prevention technology, Netasq’s unified threat management solutions ensure optimal and proactive protection,” Ashadawi continued. Al Falak will showcase a range of projects related to its systems solutions and consulting division at this year’s Gitex alongside its vendor partners including Netasq. Netasq offers a range of products including intrusion prevention technology, firewalls and VPN security solutions. The vendor takes its product to market through a network of partners including distributors, ISPs, approved VARs, retailers and integrators. “The Netasq products will help Al Falak address the needs of the banking, defence, finance, health, hospitality, and government sectors concerned about security and reliability of their wireless networks. We will highlight the features and benefits of Netasq products at the Al Falak pavilion at Gitex, along with Al Falak’s own range of solutions,” Ashadawi concluded.
