Kanoo Information Technology, Bahrain’s leading Information Technology services company, in partnership with CISCO and their distributor COMSTOR organized a workshop for select customers, showcasing the latest offerings from CISCO Security portfolio -  CISCO FirePOWER and CISCO FireSIGHT Management Centre.

The event was attended by Chief Technology Officers (CTO), Chief Information Officers (CIO), IT security Managers and IT Security Engineers in the Kingdom of Bahrain. It was conducted on January 13th, 2016 at Sofitel, Bahrain.

During his welcoming of customers to the event, Mr. Waleed Kanoo, Director at Ebrahim K. Kanoo said “Kanoo IT would like to thank all our customers and well-wishers who have supported us throughout the past years, strengthening our position as a preferred CISCO solutions provider”.

Kanoo IT is taking a leadership role in the Kingdom of Bahrain in pursuing the implementation of state of the art CISCO Security solutions aimed at providing comprehensive protection from known and advanced threats like targeted and persistent IT attacks while also reducing complexity and costs.

‘Cisco now has the number one market share in network security and data centre security with investment of $100 Million annually for their threat analysis team, now called TALOS. It represents the industry’s largest collection of real-time threat intelligence with the broadest visibility, largest footprint and the ability to action across multiple platforms for a true defence in depth framework. Customer summits provide us the much needed opportunity to interact with our prospects and customers face-to-face. We are happy to associate with Kanoo IT at the very beginning of 2016 and we are sure that today’s event will set the tone for a bright and rewarding 2016 for Kanoo IT and their customers”, said Mr. Asif Khan, Partner Manager for CISCO Bahrain, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Yemen.

‘Kanoo IT is continuously helping customers to transform and protect against sophisticated threats. Together with CISCO, we continue to innovate and deliver the most trusted, powerful and visibly driven protection against APT’s and zero day attacks’ said Ramgopal Menon, General Manager of Kanoo IT.

Early last year, CISCO announced that ‘Securing the Internet of Everything (IoE)’ will be a major focus for the company. With security and privacy as top concerns in the IoE era, CISCO wants also to highlight how physical and cyber security solutions need to work intelligently together to protect networks, devices, applications and data that make up IoE. The company showcased its entire range of agile security solutions and capabilities for IoE as well as its recently launched Incident Response services.

CISCO provides a wide range of physical and cyber security solutions to meet the needs of both environments. With CISCO technology, organizations can employ consistent security solutions with centralized management across the extended network. At the same time, organizations can meet the specific needs of each environment with the ability to enforce differentiated security policies.
