GISEC 2022: Delinea to Show Off Privileged Access Management Solutions

Published

on

Mark De Simone, the Regional Director for MEA at Delinea, says the company aims to strengthen its ties with its channel community and raise brand awareness

Are you participating in GISEC 2022?
This year’s edition of GISEC is especially important to our company as just last month we debuted as Delinea, formed through the merger of established Privileged Access Management (PAM) leaders Thycotic and Centrify. The show will be the first in-person event in the UAE that offers us the ability to raise awareness about our new brand and its mission of providing security that’s invisible to the user, while simultaneously providing IT and security teams with the control they require.

At Delinea, our go-to-market strategy for the Middle East is channel-driven, and our partners are a fundamental part of our value chain. To highlight the emphasis Delinea places on empowering its channel, we are co-participating at GISEC with our regional distributor, Shifra.

What is your theme of participation at the event?
Our message to attendees of the show is clear and concise – with Delinea, ‘Privileged access just got more accessible’. Businesses today are faced with the challenge of IT environments that are growing in complexity, which is exacerbated by threats that are increasing in both volume and sophistication. Legacy PAM solutions are not designed for these hybrid environments, are too complex, and cannot solve current privilege management challenges.

Delinea addresses this with PAM solutions that deliver seamless security by helping delineate the boundaries of access so users get the access they want while IT gets the control it needs. Our cloud-ready, enterprise-grade PAM solutions put privileged access at the centre of cybersecurity strategies.

What is the general agenda / planned list of activities at the event?
Over the three days of the event, top executives from our regional team will be present to engage with customers and prospects to understand the challenges they face, and present comprehensive ways in which by working with us, they can secure their critical data, devices, code, and cloud infrastructure to help reduce risk, ensure compliance and simplify security.

We will showcase a number of our solutions at GISEC, including live demos of our Privileged Account and Session Management (PASM), Privilege Elevation and Delegation Management (PEDM), and Remote Access portfolios. Ultimately, by participating at GISEC, we aim to strengthen our ties with our channel, raise brand awareness, and establish Delinea as a leading provider of seamless cybersecurity solutions to regional enterprises.

What according to you are the challenges faced by CISOs and Cybersecurity experts today?
With recent changes to workforce dynamics, the balance between productivity and security is now teetering on the brink. As a result, CISOs and cybersecurity experts are now having to re-evaluate risk and move back to more strategic decision-making. But as they do so, they are having to face increasingly sophisticated environments and more challenging requirements for securing an expanded threatscape. Delinea believes the opposite of complex isn’t simple – it’s seamless. We focus on empowering cybersecurity teams with solutions that are powerful and feature-rich, yet easy to operate and manage while giving users the digital freedom they want to do their jobs.

Will you be running any offline/online engagements alongside the event?
In the runup to GISEC, and through the three days of the event, we will promote our participation on social media. Organisations can turn to our official social channels to learn about the solutions we will be highlighting at the show, and the use cases and business challenges we can help them solve with our technologies. We are also offering customers and prospects the ability to plan and maximise their attendance by pre-booking one-on-one meetings with members of our team in advance of the show.

GISEC GLOBAL launches CISO Circle

Published

on

GISEC GLOBAL, the most connected and influential cybersecurity exhibition and conference in the Middle East and Africa (MEA), has launched its CISO Circle platform for chief information security officers, government leaders, and cybersecurity experts. CISO Circle, the new invite-only community launched by Dubai World Trade Centre, the organisers of GISEC GLOBAL, will give regional industry experts the opportunity to strategically discuss pressing cybersecurity issues with their peers, through discussion that will encourage proactive collaboration and information sharing.

GISEC GLOBAL’s CISO Circle will deep-dive into the most pressing cybersecurity challenges affecting enterprises and governments in the post-pandemic era, including the dangers posed by state-sponsored hackers, organised hacking groups, and insider threats, all of which now represent a constant menace in the digital age. HE Dr. Mohamed Al Kuwaiti, Head of Cyber Security, UAE Government, said, “The UAE Cyber Security council fully supports GISEC’s initiative of creating an InfoSec leaders inner circle with the mission to discuss key challenges to help build cyber resilience of businesses in the UAE.”

The first CISO Circle meeting will be hosted alongside the upcoming edition of GITEX GLOBAL, the super-connector technology event organised by Dubai World Trade Centre taking place from 10th-14th October. Organised in partnership with the UAE’s most influential cyber entities to curate and prioritise regional cybersecurity agendas, including the UAE Cybersecurity Council, Dubai Electronic Security Center, the Telecommunications & Digital Government Regulatory Authority, and Dubai Police, GISEC GLOBAL 2023, hosted from 14th-16th March, will be a meeting point for the cybersecurity ecosystem that unites the industry’s leading brands and minds during three days of unparalleled conference sessions, keynotes, partner seminars, and interactive sessions.

Cybersecurity experts on the GISEC GLOBAL CISO Circle:

Ahmed Al Zarouni, GISEC GLOBAL advisory board member, said, “GISEC GLOBAL’s CISO Circle is a significant component of the widespread cybersecurity culture, which is crucial in advancing the technological requirements of modern lifestyles and services. GISEC GLOBAL looks forward to growing and supporting the region’s cybersecurity community and ecosystem.”

Amer Sharaf, Director, Compliance, Support, And Alliances, Dubai Electronic Security Center (DESC), said, “GISEC GLOBAL’s CISO Circle will play an important role in driving thought leadership in regional cybersecurity. At a time where information sharing and collaboration between governments is essential in mitigating threats, GISEC GLOBAL’s CISO Circle will provide opportunities for cybersecurity leaders to strengthen their security posture through knowledge sharing.”

Fuad Al Ansari, GISEC GLOBAL advisory board member, said, “As malicious actors continue to exploit cybersecurity weaknesses for their own gain, it is now more important than ever for CISOs to collaborate in order to enhance their own knowledge to increase the defences of their organisation. The GISEC GLOBAL CISO Circle will actively support the region’s cybersecurity community with information that will be vital in fending off increasingly sophisticated attacks.”

Hussain AlKhalsan, CISO, Zand, said, “As the cyberthreat landscape continues to evolve, CISOs are facing an increasingly demanding and varied volume of threats. Interaction between industry peers is hugely valuable for chief information security officers, and I look forward to participating in GISEC GLOBAL’s CISO Circle’s initiatives, which will give CISOs important insight into critical cybersecurity issues.”
