RIM to attend IDC IT Security Roadshow
Company will present keynote on security needs for businesses
BlackBerry smartphone and tablet maker, Research In Motion (RIM) will participate in this year's Middle East and Africa IDC IT Security Roadshow to be held in Dubai on 4th June at Atlantis, The Palm.
Nader Henein, a security advisor at RIM who will be making a keynote presentation, said, "The robust BlackBerry security architecture is highly accredited and is trusted by many of the most security-conscious organisations around the world. We are excited to participate in the IDC IT Security Roadshow where we will talk about the issues and challenges that IT groups face today and how BlackBerry Mobile Fusion, our next generation enterprise mobility solution, can help CIOs and senior IT leaders secure and manage their organisation's mobile deployments from one unified interface."
RIM will also discuss the practical security needs for businesses that allow confidential data to be sent and received by employees using mobile devices.
"It is an honour to have RIM participating in the IDC IT Security Roadshow across 10 cities. Consumerisation of IT is leading to increased use of smartphones and related mobile applications by employees in the workplace. The lines between personal and professional use are also blurring. Organisations are increasingly implementing Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) strategies. These trends are building pressure on IT managers to focus greater attention on mobile security management. RIM's participation in the Roadshow will help raise awareness on this important topic," said Ranjit Rajan, director software, IDC Middle East and Turkey.
