PCS announces e-security partnership

Paramount Computer Systems has signed an agreement with Stonesoft Corporation of Finland to provide improved e-security solutions for its customers

UAE-based Paramount Computer Systems (PCS), an e-security provider, has announced a partnership with a Finnish network security company that it hopes will improve its e-security solutions. PCS will now integrate Stonesoft Corporation of Finland’s StoneBeat product range into its solutions for customers in the financial services, government, telecom, corporate and oil sectors.

The Middle East is in the infancy of the new e-security revolution that has recently taken off in the US and Europe. Awareness of a growing number of solutions on the market is beginning to grow in the region although as yet there is still not enough knowledge nor options available. This agreement will come as welcome news to many organisations in the Middle East that are starting to realise the importance of e-security in the e-business era.

Harish Kunnath, MD of PCS, believes that the new solutions provided will help companies focus on their core businesses rather than worrying about e-security issues. “The Internet has brought tremendous business opportunity,” he said. “[But] with this comes serious challenges. A segregated approach to network security is no longer enough.”

Kunnath said that PCS’s new solutions will help provide comprehensive, effective protection against multi-pronged network attacks. This kind of security is still rare in this region but PCS is striving to ensure its customers are kept abreast of security advances in the Middle East.
