Eng. Bashar Bashaireh, Regional Director of Fortinet Middle East, delivered a Key Note presentation that discussed strategies to retain control of the corporate network while at the same time securely giving mobile users the information they need when they need it within a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environment. The presentation highlighted how, with features such as client reputation, endpoint profiling and authentication, users can make their security 'aware' through granular control over users, devices, data, and applications.

During the conference, which was organized with the theme Business & Cyber Security, Fortinet presented latest techniques and solutions on countering DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks. The presentation focused on the current global picture of DDoS threats and different mitigation methods, especially considering the potential DDoS threats and volumes are increasing as more machines including mobile devices join the Internet.

Eng. Bashar Bashaireh, Regional Director of Fortinet Middle East, said: Network security is one of the most pressing concerns of enterprises in the region, that constantly have to deal with both internal and external security threats every day. Our participation at the JIEEEC 2013 and MENA ISC 2013 served as an excellent avenue to highlight the latest trends and techniques in dealing with these evolving challenges and vulnerabilities. Moreover, it was a great opportunity to showcase the powerful network security solutions that Fortinet has developed to enabling enterprises strongly secure their corporate networks and maintain control over their IT infrastructure.
