ESET unveils Managed Security Programme
Vendor promotes flagship ESET NOD32 with Arabic version
Security vendor ESET Middle East came GITEX Technology Week 2015 to unveil its Managed Security Programme and promote the recently launched ESET Smart Security and ESET NOD32 antivirus solutions.
According to the company, it's the first time that it has released ESET NOD32 antivirus suite with the Arabic version.
The company states that following the launch of version 9, the company has seen phenomenal online sales in the region following the global release on 13th October, 2015.
Neo Neophytou, managing director, ESET Middle East, Greece and Cyprus, said with the release of version 9, the company is expecting to gain more market share in KSA and Egypt as the two countries have the largest population in the region.
"The response in the past towards the English version of our products was lukewarm here in the Middle East but with the release of the Arabic version, we are seeing a different response from the market," he said. "We are upbeat that our sales will pick up now that we are offering version 9 in both English and Arabic."
Neophytou added that aside from showcasing smart security solutions and the latest ESET NOD32 antivirus, ESET has also launched its Managed Security Programme (MSP). "We are looking to forge alliances with managed security providers (MSPs) with integration expertise in the Middle East," he said. "We believe that the MSP market is steadily picking up in the region and GITEX gave us the perfect platform to introduce our MSP to existing and potential partners."
He said the company has been meeting with partners to raise awareness around its MSP and all the service offered under the scheme.
Neophytou pointed out that ESET is also sharpening its focus in the SME and corporate segment. "We acquired DESlock, an IT security company that offers encryption technology solutions," he said. "That acquisition has helped us to hone our focus with SMEs and the large corporates."
He added that ESET is promoting these solutions and guiding partners on how they can identify opportunities in the SME and corporate segment.
