Network threat management solution vendor Alert Logic has signed up eLinear as its exclusive reseller partner for the Middle East. IT services outfit eLinear, which has a regional office in Dubai, will offer network security services on a subscription basis to customers in the region.
“Alert Logic has developed one of the most effective and unintrusive solutions for protecting internal networks against known and unknown vulnerabilities, intrusions and worms. The company’s around-the-clock managed services model allows eLinear to offer network protection capabilities that are largely unavailable to organisations in the Middle East today,” said Ramzi Nassar, president at eLinear Solutions Middle East.
“Given the complexity of managing intrusion detection and prevention systems, most organizations in the Middle East lack the resources required to deploy and maintain this technology. Together, eLinear and Alert Logic will make network threat management available to companies of all sizes,” he added.
“While most organisations today have deployed perimeter security products, network worms and malicious attackers can still easily bypass firewalls and traditional IDS/IPS solutions to disrupt networks. The challenge for many enterprises, especially in the Middle East market, is securing their network without adding layers of complexity and additional IT staff,” said Michael Stoeger, director of business development and channel sales for Alert Logic.
"Through this partnership, we are combining eLinear’s proven networking services capabilities with Alert Logic’s subscription-based threat management products to make complex network security methods more accessible to organisations in the Middle East,” Stoeger continued.
