Forcepoint, a relatively newcomer to the security scene, aims to showcase its breadth of security solutions, as well as its approach to tackling security matters at this year's GITEX.

"We are reinventing cybersecurity by creating uncompromising systems that understand people's behaviours and motivations as they interact with data and IP everywhere," said Mahmoud-Samy Ibrahim, Area VP, Emerging Markets, Forcepoint.

During GITEX, Forecpoint will demonstrate solutions in network security (including Next Generation Firewall), Cloud Security, (including CASB) and Data and Insider Threat (including our latest data loss prevention). Plus the company will have representatives on the stand to discuss issues impacting organisations across the region, including GDPR, AMD and CASB.

Ibrahim added: "Visitors to our stand will begin to understand our human-centric approaching to security which helps organisations better understand indicators of normal cyber behaviour and quickly identify activity and operations, such as shadow IT, that pose the biggest risk.

"As enterprises and government agencies shift their applications to SaaS and cloud IT models, they require intelligent systems that quickly spot anomalies, assess risk and facilitate rapid resolution to protect users and their data in an increasingly zero perimeter world."

Forcepoint's goal is to support and prepare organisations across the MENA region, but ultimately to ensure businesses are full-enabled to do their job and to avoid mistakes that could lead to loss of critical data.

"There is no silver bullet in security," said Ibrahim. "We must build programs that have many layers of protection, understanding and taking into consideration international implications for data privacy like GDPR. We must always keep in mind the right balance of safety and privacy as we build data and insider threat protection programs, to ultimately stop the bad and free the good."

Forcepoint has been exhibiting at GITEX for the last two years and this year it will be located in Hall 1, Stand B1-1.
