Demand for IT security solutions ‘on the rise’
Dubai, November 21, 2012
The growing proliferation of communications and Internet connectivity technologies in the region is causing a significant increase in demand for IT security solutions, said an expert.
Information security has gained strong interest and attention as businesses increasingly appreciate the importance of information assets, whose value is directly related to how much it is characterised as available, accurate, authentic, confidential, complete and not threatened, said Ahmed Ashadawi, president and CEO, Alfalak Electronic Equipment & Supplies.
“Many companies are now seeking to achieve ISO 27001 certification as part of continuing efforts to ensure that critical business data is not compromised in any way. Information has become a vital asset for many businesses, who now fully understand that the value of information can quickly deteriorate if it is not well secured,” Ashadawi added.
“Alfalak is strongly positioned to cater to the rapid increase in demand for information security solutions, as we offer only the best, highest-quality products that empower companies to easily achieve ISO 27001 certification.”
