"Proofpoint is tackling people centric security," - Emile Saleh, Saleh, regional director, Middle East and Africa, Proofpoint.

Proofpoint delivers people centric security

Proofpoint  is participating at GITEX 2019 Technology Week, with its portfolio of people-centric cyber security products that protect organisations’ greatest assets and biggest risks: their people.

99% of today’s targeted cyber-attacks are human activated. These attacks rely on a person at the other end to open a weaponised document, click on an unsafe link, type their credentials, or even carry out the attacker’s commands directly (such as wiring money or sending sensitive files.)

These highly targeted, socially engineered attacks rely on cyber criminals identifying who inside an organisation has access to the information they want and tricking unsuspecting employees through email, cloud apps, and various social media channels.

“Cybercriminals relentlessly target the people who will provide the most lucrative payout and that’s why we are committed to delivering innovative people-centric security and training solutions that ensure an organisation’s most attacked people are protected,” Emile Abou Saleh, regional director, Middle East and Africa, Proofpoint.

“We continue to invest in the Middle East and are excited for our participation at GITEX.”
