Supporting Middle East organisations in their secure Digital Transformation, Trend Micro will exhibit at GITEX under the theme of ‘The Art of Cybersecurity.’ The theme combines Trend Micro’s proven foresight, its XGen security strategy of cross-generational threat defence solutions and passionate people to make cybersecurity a work of art.
“The GCC’s high rates of cyberattacks across email, URL, and malware show that cybercriminals are ramping up their exploits of the weak points in organisations’ endpoints, network and cloud – especially with COVID-19-related threats,” said Dr Moataz Bin Ali, Vice President, Middle East and North Africa (MENA), Trend Micro.
At GITEX, Trend Micro will showcase cybersecurity solutions across cloud (Cloud One Hybrid Cloud Security), user protection for endpoints (Apex One), email and web, detection and response, Operational Technology (OT) and Industrial Control security (TXOne Networks) and network protection from known, unknown, and undisclosed threats (Network Defence).Click below to share this article
