- PRESS RELEASE
Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, received the '2012 Middle East Product Innovation Award' by Frost & Sullivan, recognizing its achievements in the Middle East network security market.
As a result of the significant increase in frequency and sophistication of targeted cyber attacks and application attacks on enterprises in the Middle East, Huawei has seen a corresponding growth in demand for improved enterprise network and online business security solutions across all sectors.
The Huawei anti-DDoS solution for enterprise was particularly recognized by Frost & Sullivan for the reduction of overall operational expenses and cost of ownership for customers.
The anti-DDoS solution for enterprises offers a seven-layer purification framework, which effectively detects and protects against a wide spectrum of diversified threats, volumetric attacks and malformed packet attacks, as well as attacks on application layer traffic.
"Huawei has demonstrated excellence in capturing significant market share within the Network Security market by serving a wide client base and market coverage," said Y. Shashidhar, Managing Director, Frost and Sullivan.
"The ability of this integrated security solution in breaking through performance bottlenecks without compromising mission critical applications has reinforced our belief that Huawei is a well-deserved receiver of the 2012 Middle East Product Innovation Award in Network Security Market."
The Frost & Sullivan award evaluation criteria comprised four main categories, including innovative element of the product, usage of leading-edge technologies in the product, inclusion of value-added features and benefits, as well as ability to increase the customer's return on investment (ROI).
"Today's enterprise network security demands are a reflection of how technology, specifically virtual and mobile technology, is becoming an ever more integral part of an organization's business model. New end-users, integrated personal mobile devices, the Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) trend and the emergence of the Cloud have all contributed to the need for all-encompassing security solutions that Huawei offers," said Joe So, Vice President of Sales, Huawei Enterprise Middle East.
Testament to its commitment in customer-centric product innovation, Huawei has 15 R&D centres and 25 joint innovation centres worldwide. Three of these centres are based in the Middle East.
Huawei has invested heavily in developing its Middle East customer base since the Enterprise business group was established nearly two years ago. It currently has 4,000 employees working from 14 offices covering nine countries across the Middle East.
