Scope Middle East (SCOPE ME), a leading specialty distributor and technology solutions provider in the Middle East, intends to address the Middle East’s growing need for storage scalability and security in the era of Big Data through its participation at GITEX Technology Week 2014. The company will highlight storage solutions from its vendor partner Coraid and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) technologies from InfoWatch.
The VAD also intends to reach out to potential customers from the region’s rapidly growing e-commerce industry. Earlier this year, SCOPE signed a partnership agreement with Authentify and will use GITEX as a platform to promote the vendor’s market leading solutions like Authentify xFA and 2CHK® which use phone-based out-of-band authentication technology to offer flexible authentication. “As e-commerce transactions have become increasingly popular in the Middle and Africa, regional organizations and their customers have become the target of cyber-attacks. There is an urgent need for secure authentication solutions and we believe that by exposing the Authentify brand at GITEX, we will be able to capitalize on market opportunities,” said Mr. Fadi AbuEkab, CEO, SCOPE.
“Over the last year, the region has witnessed an explosion in data volumes. To remain competitive, organizations must not only accommodate this surge, but must also leverage technology to extract valuable insight from all this data,” continued Mr. AbuEkab. “At GITEX, we will present a comprehensive portfolio of solutions that caters to every aspect of data storage, from management to access and security.”
SCOPE will demonstrate the EtherDrive, modular data storage, and EtherCloud, storage management platform, solutions from Coraid. In the era of the cloud, Coraid EtherDrive enables organizations to support mixed workloads and scale capacity and performance according to business requirements. Management of this flexible storage infrastructure is easily orchestrated by the Coraid EtherCloud platform. It enables software-based control and delivers comprehensive visibility and intelligence.
For protection of corporate data, SCOPE advocates a multi-layered and holistic approach and believes DLP has a very important role to play since these solutions deliver internal security protection. The distributor will highlight the InfoWatch Traffic Monitor solution which combines several content analysis technologies to enable effective protection of information throughout its lifecycle.
SCOPE is very optimistic about its participation and expects the networking opportunities and visibility to provide a solid return on investment. “Last year, we received an overwhelming number of leads from customers within the telecom, government, enterprise and hospitality sectors. We expect that this year will follow a similar trend as the IT requirements of these organizations have grown exponentially in the last twelve months,” added Mr. AbuEkab.
SCOPE’s stand at GITEX is C1-10 and is in Hall 1 of the Dubai World Trade Center (DWTC).
