Dubai: With an aim of increasing the adoption of security solutions in the UAE, ITQAN Al Khaleej Computers, a national-owned leading systems integrator and solutions provider, signed a platinum partnership agreement with global cybersecurity leader, Forcepoint. The new deal extends access to Forcepoint’s leading products, including Data Loss Prevention (DLP), User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA), Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) and web/email security that can stand alone or integrate within an existing environment.

In 2018, ITQAN sold Forcepoint’s solutions with the highest levels of customer satisfaction, technical and sales certifications, sales success and verified client references, closing over 1,000,000 USD in business. Because of this, Forcepoint awarded ITQAN with the prestigious ‘Commitment and Achievement’ award. This unique accomplishment is the highest tier of recognition in the program and is reserved for Value Solutions Partners who are best-in-class performers and highly engaged in the business, offering customers the very best support and expertise.

On receiving the esteemed accolade, Walid El Saikali, VP & General Manager of ITQAN commented, “ITQAN is delighted to become a Forcepoint Platinum Partner as this is strategic to our company’s roadmap. Together, ITQAN and Forcepoint will deliver next-generation security solutions which are increasingly in demand in the UAE. The upcoming regional digital transformation must be managed with risk-adaptive, data protection, and leading end-to-end threat and security solutions. With our team’s capabilities, we will strive to deliver our solutions to continually meet our customer’s needs and requirements in an ever-evolving threat landscape.”

Neal Lillywhite, Vice President of EMEA Channel at Forcepoint, said: “We have had a very positive partnership to date with ITQAN in the UAE, and their shift to Platinum partner status will further increase dividends from our joint work. We believe now is the time to invest in the kind of valuable services that will help channel partners and business customers to implement efficient technology solutions.”

According to a recent study by IBM, average data breach costs $5.31 million in Middle East. In KSA and UAE, the average time to identify a data breach is 260 days, and the average time to contain a data breach once identified was 91 days. That said, it is necessary for organizations to have a strong line of defense against security threats in the digital transformation era.

Focused on cybersecurity, ITQAN plays an important role in securing UAE IT infrastructure through successful partnerships with handpicked technology providers like Forcepoint.
