Batelco, the Kingdom’s leading ICT business solutions provider and Sophos, a global leader in network and endpoint security, held a next generation IT Security Workshop on November 20th, at the Four Seasons Hotel to introduce Sophos Solutions to Batelco’s customers from the enterprise, government and banking sectors.

Batelco recently announced their platinum partnership agreement with Sophos, which was signed on the sidelines of GITEX 2016. Batelco has established partnerships with well-known security providers to meet the specific needs of different organisations and implement scalable, flexible and cost-effective security solutions. Through the provisioning of Sophos Security Solutions, which are easy to deploy and manage, Batelco aims to enable organisations to take an innovative approach across all areas of network security, from the way firewalls are managed to the way they report information and how they work with other security systems around them, resulting in an unprecedented level of simplicity, insight and advanced threat protection.

Batelco Bahrain CEO Eng. Muna Al Hashemi said that Batelco is constantly on the quest to expand its security services portfolio in order to support the increasing security requirements for organisations across all sectors.

“Better network security means better business and for peace of mind it is a smart move for businesses to extend their security across all areas of their operation to protect their network, data and all elements of their organisation,” Eng. Al Hashemi said.

Batelco Chief Marketing Officer Mike Stanford noted that the Bahrain market continues to see an increasing demand for innovative and managed security solutions.

“Technologies such as Cloud, virtualization and enterprise mobility are tremendous business enablers, but the risk of data breaches, identity theft, financial theft and a never-ending stream of virus and malware attacks pose a threat to organisations’ network security. Such risks are prompting organisations and government authorities to expand their security efforts to ensure peace of mind,” he explained.

Sophos VP Middle East and Africa, Harish Chib said that Sophos’ broad and powerful portfolio of IT security products will allow Batelco to deliver a ‘complete security’ and a ‘synchronized security’ solution to its customers.

“The opportunity to collaborate on the Next Generation IT Security Workshop with Batelco allowed us to showcase our complete range of security solutions to Batelco’s enterprise customers. Together Sophos and Batelco can make a significant contribution in improving the IT security landscape of Bahrain,” added Mr Chib.

The provision of advanced Security Solutions positions Batelco as the leading end-to-end integrated ICT solutions provider offering customers a one-stop-shop experience which differentiates the Company from others in the market. On an ongoing basis, Batelco continues to expand its ICT portfolio and strives to deliver a steady stream of new solutions to its customers.
