StarLink brings agentless security technology to MEA
ForeScout technology provides users with ability to instantaneously see both traditional and IoT devices on a network
Security VAD StarLink has signed a distribution agreement with ForeScout Technologies, a pioneer in agentless cybersecurity.
StarLink will sell ForeScout’s technology through its network of Channel Partners to enterprise and government customers in the Middle East and Africa.
The attack surface is growing due to the rapidly increasing number of traditional and Internet of Things [IoT] devices connecting to the corporate network and to critical infrastructure. ForeScout’s technology provides businesses and governments with the ability to instantaneously see both traditional and IoT devices when they connect to a network, control device access based on security posture and policy, and orchestrate system-wide response
Hamed Diab, regional director – METCA, ForeScout commented, “In the Middle East we are seeing a surge of Bring Your Own Devices (BYOD) and IoT strategies in enterprises and critical infrastructure, representing a fundamental shift in the way CIOs and CISOs operate and secure their environment. You cannot secure what you cannot see, and organisations need to be able to identify devices the instant they connect to a network. StarLink will play a fundamental role in our MEA strategy, helping businesses and governments minimise security risks and make informed decisions.dal Othman, managing director, StarLink, added, “The collaboration with ForeScout helps us further deliver excellent security solutions to our Partners as its technology integrates out-of- box with many existing security and technology vendors in our portfolio. ForeScout, will be positioned in the Threat Protection unit of the StarLink Solutions Lifecycle.”
