Help AG extends partnership with Juniper
Berner: Most of our customers are now delivering business applications through hosted services.

Middle East IT security solutions provider Help AG today announced it has extended its relationship with Juniper Networks and will be the first reseller in the UAE certified to offer the networking vendor's Junos WebApp Secure solution.

The Juniper solution is designed to detect, track, profile, and prevent attacks in real-time, neutralising threats against Web applications.

Research by Frost & Sullivan has identified Web applications as one of the three main technologies to drive the deployment of integrated security appliances in the region through to 2018, due to a paradigm shift in communication to collaborative technologies, coupled with increased Internet penetration and information sharing.

"As most of our customers are now delivering business applications through hosted services, we are specifically focusing on protecting their valuable resources published via Web applications," said Stephan Berner, managing director.

"The Junos WebApp Secure solution is an additional security layer that is easily integrated with the existing Web application firewalls deployed by many of our customers thereby delivering comprehensive Web application protection without the prohibitive costs of a complete systems overhaul."

Help AG's director of Technology Services, Nicolai Solling, believes the innovative approach of Junos WebApp Secure to identify and track malicious users and activity will give clients a level of security and visibility into attacks that is currently unmatched. Junos WebApp Secure's deception detection technology is intended to actively prevent attackers and stop even the most sophisticated zero-day Web attacks.

David Helfer, VP of Partners, EMEA, Juniper Networks said, "The partnership between Juniper Networks and Help AG has been highly successful and beneficial not only to both companies but also to our customers in the region. Our world-class products complemented by Help AG's award-winning consultancy, implementation and support services have resulted in the very best security solutions for a fast growing customer base. With the Junos WebApp Secure solution, Help AG now has a solutions portfolio to address the growing Web application security market."
