Frost & Sullivan: Regulatory compliance to be one of the key drivers of the enterprise security market in the Middle East

- PRESS RELEASE
With consumers and enterprises accessing more and more applications through the Internet globally, the computing industry is witnessing a paradigm shift. Enterprises are rapidly adopting and deploying applications and new services to gain operating efficiencies.
To overcome this rising complexity of associated threats such as intellectual property, identity theft, unauthorised access, service interruption, and breakdown of internal controls, a shift in focus is necessary from threat management to risk management.
To address these challenges, Frost & Sullivan will be hosting the Middle East Enterprise Security Summit 2012 on 21st November, at Habtoor Grand Beach Resort, Dubai, U.A.E. This summit aims to convene the best minds in Enterprise Security under one roof to create an interactive milieu for exchange of knowledge and ideas.
With the increased adoption of bring-your-own-device (BYOD), cloud and computing trends in business, the need for user based security has become even bigger. The adoption of these technologies has challenged the traditional security architecture, which has been unable to tackle increasingly sophisticated attacks in the Middle East. Also, due to increasing penetration of global companies in the region and Governments plans to spend more on security technologies, there has been a growing need amongst public and private sector companies to enhance their security infrastructure with IT becoming a critical component in their operational setups.
Through this summit, Frost & Sullivan will address these emerging and continuing threats to Enterprise Security, as well as brainstorm on the innovative best practices in the increasingly competitive Enterprise Security sector to combat the increasing risk of security breaches and data leakage, cyber warfare, data center security, and more in the Middle East.
Andy Baul Lewis, Director, Information and Communication Technologies Practice, Middle East and North Africa, Frost & Sullivan states, "The changing Enterprise landscape and paradigm shift in communications to collaborative technologies, coupled with increased Internet penetration and information sharing, network threats are making organisations review their security policies. Also, with the Government spending on IT, the Middle East Network Security market is expected to grow over the next five years, thereby opening up huge opportunities for vendors to identify and tap."
The key areas of discussion at the Summit would include Information Security Management, Evolving Role of the CIOs, Protecting IT Infrastructure from Future Threats, Efficient and Effective ways to protect Data and Applications, Ways to Manage Security Gaps in an Enterprise and Bridging the gap between Security and Operational Efficiency.
With participation expected from CIOs, CISOs, CTOs, Vice Presidents, General Managers, Network Managers, Enterprise Security Architects, Internet Security Architects, Compliance Officers, Department Heads across Industry sectors like BFSI, Telecom, IT/ITeS, Manufacturing, Government, Education, Healthcare, Retail, Automotive and Logistics, Media and Entertainment the Summit promises to be a cutting-edge and engaging forum for the industry.
The Summit is supported by Injazat Data Systems as the Platinum Partner. Telecom Review, Teknotel and Connect- World Magazines are supporting as the Media Partners while Tech Channel MEA is the online partner for the event.
