Responding to growing business in the Middle East and North Africa, AlertEnterprise, a Silicon Valley based provider of Security Convergence software, has appointed Amid Al-Shanteer as Vice President of Sales for the Middle East and North Africa.
In a region dominated by critical industries such as Oil and Gas, Petro-Chemicals, Healthcare and Financial Services, security convergence provides the linkage to integrate both cyber and physical security to close essential security gaps and deliver critical infrastructure protection.
According to Jasvir Gill, Founder and CEO of AlertEnterprise, “Amid brings deep domain expertise and knowledge of the region, as well as relationships with key integrators in the business. His appointment is a key addition to execute on our strategy of expanding in the region.”
According to Al-Shanteer, “AlertEnterprise is growing rapidly and provides a much broader range of solutions when compared to other providers in the market. Enterprise customers in the Middle East and operators of critical infrastructure not only need identity management and asset protection, they also need protection from insider threat and a single solution with Incident Management and Response to enhance their global security operations. I joined them because AlertEnterprise is the only company that provides both.”
Al-Shanteer joined AlertEnterprise from Quantum Secure, where he led the sales effort for the region as Regional Vice President for the Middle East. Prior to that, Al-Shanteer was Vice President for Middle East for AMAG Technologies, now a part of G4S.
With many years of physical security, technology, sales and service, Al-Shanteer also held positions at Lenel Systems International, and system engineering roles in UAE and UK. Al-Shanteer holds a Bachelor of Engineering, Electronic Engineering and Computer Science from the University of Westminster in the UK.
AlertEnterprise software provides true prevention of insider threats, fraud, theft, sabotage and acts of terrorism by overcoming vulnerabilities and blended threats across IT, OT, access systems and control systems.
