Juma Al Majid terminates threats with AV suite
Juma Al Majid has implemented ESET Smart Security to cut down on external virus, spam and malware threats.
The UAE's Juma Al Majid Group has chosen security specialist ESET's Smart Security (ESS) suite of products to defend its network against a range of possible threats, including malware and viruses. The new centrally-managed system was chosen by the business conglomerate after evaluating a number of market products.
Muhammad Habib, senior network administrator at Juma Al Majid Group, said: "Our company has an exhaustive IT network in place to connect the group's diversified businesses. Our systems were facing new virus attacks and threats daily, which were not getting cleaned immediately. Hence, we began looking for an effective antivirus solution that would not only be easy to deploy and manage but would also be able to protect our IT infrastructure against any new forms of online threats. We tested ESET Smart Security for almost a month and found it to be a clear winner as it was able to detect virus, malware and other online threats proactively, which greatly reduced our administrative efforts of manually cleaning infected machines."
Habib adds that Juma Al Majid implemented ESS in phases to ensure maximum workstation coverage. In addition to antivirus capability, ESS also offers firewall and antispyware features, and can be remotely deployed as well. Juma Al Majid claims that virus infection rates " have almost reached zero" since the deployment was completed.
"We are happy Juma Al Majid Group chose ESET Smart Security for their security needs. ESET Smart Security offers industry leading performance and easy manageability that help companies secure their information exchange easily. We are confident Juma Al Majid Group will experience the benefits of installing ESET Smart Security including saving time and costs," commented Neo Neophytou, managing director of ADAOX Middle East.
The Juma Al Majid group operates in a number of verticals, including automotive, construction and travel. The ESS deployment was completed by channel partner NTS on behalf of Eset's regional business development partner, ADAOX Middle East.
