Comtrust calls for security awareness

Comtrust, a subsidiary of the UAE's Etisalat, urged delegates at this week's Cards conference to remember the importance of electronic security

Comtrust, a subsidiary of the UAE's Etisalat, urged delegates at this week's Cards conference to remember the importance of electronic security. Farooq Hasan, product manager of Comtrust, addressed several issues related to public key infrastructure (PKI) and security issues relevant to businesses engaged in e-commerce.

Hasan spoke of the need to tackle security, which he views as the final barrier to the growth of e-commerce. He also emphasized how creating a traceable identity can protect companies as well as consumers. “If major organisations and banks in the region do not take action to ensure they know who is making transactions they will be left in the wake of the e-commerce wave,” said Hasan.

The company aims to leverage the brand of its mother company Etisalat, according to Hasan. Comtrust, which has clients in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan, provides services in the areas of systems integration, enterprise PKI implementations and corporate e-commerce strategy consulting.
