Kanoo IT & Cisco Host Threat Intelligence and Protection Seminar

Kanoo Information Technology; a subsidiary of E.K Kanoo, organised a Cybersecurity seminar in partnership with Cisco Bahrain focussing on Cisco’s Security Solutions portfolio. The “Threat Intelligence and Protection" event took place at the Ritz Carlton, in the presence of Mr. Waleed Kanoo, Director at Ebrahim K. Kanoo, Mr. Ramgopal Menon, General Manager of Kanoo Information Technology and Mr. Asif Khan, Partner Manager at Cisco Bahrain.

The seminar discussed the major cyber security threats affecting people around the globe, and the importance of selecting the appropriate defence mechanisms to protect your data. Furthermore, attendees were introduced to Cisco’s cutting edge integrated threat defence solutions that work effectively on detecting and preventing security threats in all stages of the attack continuum.

Mr. Waleed Kanoo; Director at Ebrahim K. Kanoo, discussed the growing global cyber threats and the urgency of preventative action, “The world is witnessing an alarming increase in the severity of cyber threats. What’s more worrying is the far reaching impact of many of these threats, often infringing on personal data. We at Kanoo IT believe in preparing for any unforeseen event and ensuring our clients’ business continuity.”

Commenting on the occasion Mr. Ramgopal Menon, General Manager of Kanoo Information Technology, said: “Kanoo IT has a strong focus on clients’ needs which motivates us to deliver a comprehensive set of the top-of-the-line solutions to support the businesses’ digital platforms including next-generation firewalls, intrusion prevention systems (IPS), secure access systems, security analytics, and malware defence against cyber-attacks.

Mr. Asif Khan, Partner Manager, Cisco Bahrain said “The digital landscape has opened opportunities for businesses, and consumers to grow; it has also opened up even more opportunities for hackers. With greater access comes greater threat, the need for security needs to be as pervasive as the Internet of Everything (IoE) itself.”

“Cisco is leading the Security industry as the world’s largest cyber security company, and is committed to innovation and proving it through our unmatched investment in this space. Our architectural approach is unmatched in the industry, focused on detecting and preventing threats, and providing protection to our customers combined with the Cisco Partner investments our partners such as Kanoo IT are making.

Together we can change the security equation, by simplifying security complexity for our customers, ensuring businesses are protected and making IT more productive.” Continued Mr. Khan.
