Dubai based leading value added distributors in Middle East, Spectrami today announced its participation in the Middle East edition of the world’s leading security conference, Black Hat to be held at Abu Dhabi on 5th and 6th December 2012. Spectrami is participating in association with its vendor partner General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions, the market leader in network visibility, analysis, and control solutions for advanced threat defense.
With the rise in the number of advanced cyber-attacks targeting leading Oil & Gas companies, critical infrastructure organisations and Banking sector in the region, the need of the hour is to increase awareness about Advance Persistent Threat (APT) Protection among the enterprises and adopt effective measures to guard them against advance persistent threats.
Together with Spectrami, Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions will showcase their award-winning solution, Fidelis XPS. Fidelis XPS Advanced Threat Defense products enable organizations to discover and eradicate threats in real-time through broad visibility over all network threats (both malware and non-malware based), across all network ports and protocols, at multi-gigabit speeds.
Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions, the silver sponsors for Black Hat event at Abu Dhabi will be exhibiting with their distributors Spectrami in the exhibition area of Emirates Palace Hotel, Abu Dhabi. Experts from both Spectrami and Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions will be present at Black Hat, Abu Dhabi to share their expertise and knowledge on cyber security as well as offer comprehensive solutions to protect enterprises in the region from advanced persistent threats.
The Fidelis XPS solution increases the probability of detecting advanced threats by providing a level of visibility over all phases of the threat life cycle and enables security practitioners to discover, investigate and remediate advanced threats quicker, more efficiently and more cost effectively than they can do using other toolsets and techniques. Because the Fidelis XPS technology decodes and analyzes the applications and content flowing over the network in real-time (while the network sessions are occurring), it can take an action, such as a selective recording action or a blocking action, on a network session before the session completes. The system includes a flexible, open rules engine that security teams can use to identify and track custom threats that were designed specifically to target their organizations.
Anand Choudha, Managing Director, Spectrami said, “Our main purpose to participate along with our partner Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions at Black Hat, Abu Dhabi is to create more awareness and educate customers about the advancement in levels of cyber-attack, which can’t be countered without the adoption of advance security solutions like Fidelis XPS,”
“The Fidelis XPS solution can provide comprehensive protection to enterprises and governments in the region against advance persistent threats and hacking into their critical infrastructure. We believe that Black Hat is one platform where from we can take our message to a larger audience spread across the Middle East region,” Anand further added.
