A Kuwaiti education authority has awarded Trend Micro a contract to supply client and server security products at its applied education colleges across the country. The Public Authority for Applied Education and Training (PAAET), which is responsible for around 37,000 applied education students across Kuwait, has invested in 4,000 client and 60 server licences of Trend’s Client Server Suite Enterprise edition. Ali Al-Ghanim, director of the Computer Information Centre at PAAET, said, “The goal of PAAET is to develop skills and manpower resources in order to fulfil the human resource needs of the Kuwait economy. “With a student body spread across four colleges and several training institutes, comprehensive protection of our networks is a complex issue. Nevertheless, we are confident that the Trend Micro solution will meet these demands.” The implementation of the security solution is already underway because of the increased level of attacks against government institutions and educational establishments across the region. Capricorn International Technology Group (CITG), Trend’s regional channel partner, carried out the deployment. Ashraf Arafeh, IT and projects manager at CITG, said, “Security is the number one issue for the vast majority of organizations across the region and in an institution of PAAET’s size and complexity it is even more of a concern. “With advanced, centralized management capabilities, Trend Micro’s Client Server Suite Enterprise Edition is the perfect answer, and can be deployed to create precisely the right mix of security and performance that an educational establishment requires.”
