Intel Security will provide security solutions to Gulf Air following the signing of an agreement.

These include system security, network security and security management solutions.

A statement said the agreement will address Gulf Air’s information security requirements on multiple levels.

It will include Intel Security’s professional services which will assist Gulf Air in improving understanding of security risks, and optimising information technology security.

Intel Security’s “Complete Data Protection” suite includes encryption to help Gulf Air safeguard data in transit and on rest, in addition to email security solution which will help protect Gulf Air’s critical email services.

By implementing McAfee Data Loss Prevention (DLP) to protect the most valuable business data, Gulf Air’s information security team can help avert potential risks related to data loss.

Implementation of McAfee DLP is designed around the “Gulf Air – Data Loss Presentation Model”.

Gulf Air acting chief executive Maher Al Musallam said he believed the airline’s drive to uphold the highest possible information security standards will positively impact not only passengers but also the workforce.

“Intel Security, with its renowned information security credentials, is perfect in helping the airline achieve information security goals and further supporting commitment to managing critical business data,” Gulf Air’s Information Technology (IT) director Dr Jassim Haji said.

The airline’s commitment to protecting IT systems, and to securing critical IT systems both on ground and onboard its fleet was reflected in a continuous review and assessment of cyber security measures, Dr Haji added.

Intel Security’s regional director for the Middle East and North Africa Hamed Diab said he was confident that the agreement would bring significant benefits to Gulf Air such as accelerating time-to-protection while helping reduce data security costs and risks.
