Ivanti opens Dubai office
Hammoud says transformation, competition and cutting down operational costs are major challenges.

Ivanti, a provider of unified secure digital workplace solutions, has expanded into the Middle East, after the vendor opened its office in Dubai.

Ivanti said it will be working with channel partners and customers across all countries in the region to solidify and grow its existing presence, and to promote unified IT and security offering.

Husni Hammoud, general manager, Middle East at Ivanti, said: "While maturity in this region varies between countries and sectors, with some organisations using the latest technologies and others still in the process of building up a complete, comprehensive IT environment, we are seeing some overall trends like protection against cyberattacks and compliance to regulations as major concerns. Like everywhere else in the world, market transformation, competition and cutting down operational costs are major challenges. Our customers and prospects are also calling for better manageability and automation in the products that they are buying."

Ivanti's products are already available in the Middle East, with a great number of existing bookings and customers across a variety of sectors.

Nigel Seddon, vice president, western Europe and MEA at Ivanti, said: "We look forward to growing new relationships with customers in the Middle East where we are able to demonstrate the value of unified IT not just for security but for delivering a higher standard of digital workplace overall. As well as this we are excited to be providing new areas of opportunity for new and existing channel partners so that we can meet the needs of our joint customers."
