Bahaa Hudairi, Regional Sales Director – META, Lookout, emphasizes the need for a unified platform and the vital role played by Lookout in providing a secure perimeter for organizations in today’s perimeter-less world.
What are the plans for you to be part of GITEX GLOBAL this year and why is it important for you to be part of the week-long show?
Our goal for the show is to give visitors an understanding of how the Lookout Security Platform safeguards an organization’s data with security that goes everywhere the data goes — whether it’s in a data center, public cloud or downloaded to an endpoint. With a unified platform, Lookout is integrating its endpoint security offering “Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security” with the Lookout Cloud Security Platform, comprised of Security Service Edge (SSE) technologies including Lookout Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Lookout Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) and Lookout Secure Web Gateway (SWG).
Please highlight the products and solutions that you will be showcasing at the GITEX?
At GITEX, we will be showcasing the Lookout Cloud Security Platform — a Security Service Edge (SSE) solution — that combines CASB, ZTNA and SWG natively in a single platform, significantly reducing the complexity, costs, number of security vendors and point solutions an IT department has to manage.
It detects malicious content and classifies sensitive data while monitoring the risk level of endpoints on the network. Lookout combines data security, access control, threat protection, security monitoring and acceptable use control functionality into a single strategy, allowing organizations to modify access and protect data using advanced DLP capabilities to encrypt and restrict data sharing in real-time so only authorized users have access. It also delivers automated assessments of all cloud apps and infrastructure to ensure proper configuration.
By integrating the above SSE technologies, as well as DLP, EDRM, UEBA & the pioneering Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security, Lookout’s unified model offers unmatched security & overall user experience.
At GITEX, we will offer in-booth sessions to showcase how the Lookout Cloud Security Platform can solve an organizations’ most critical data-centric cloud security challenges. Booth demos include:
● Protect & Empower Your Hybrid Workforce: See how Lookout promotes collaboration amongst an organizations’ remote workforce, while protecting them from all modern day cyber threats.
● Secure Access to Private Apps: See how Lookout provides seamless and secure Zero Trust access to the organizations’ private enterprise applications while mitigating the risk of a data breach.
● Protect Your Data: See how Lookout provides organizations with visibility into user activities, data and applications so that security teams can apply unified data and threat protection policies across multi-cloud environments.
Which are the major cybersecurity trends influencing the Middle East?
As operations move to the cloud, IT security teams find themselves guarding data that has scattered across data centers, private clouds and software-as-a-service (SaaS) apps, and are accessed by endpoints sitting on networks they don’t manage. But unlike when everything was neatly inside perimeters, they no longer have the visibility or the controls to protect their data. To prevent data leakage in this cloud-first era, organizations need a unified platform that protects users, devices, access and data, across all applications and devices, from any modern-day cyber threats, and that’s where SSE, and as a consequence, Lookout can play a vital role.
How does your offerings enable organizations to enhance their cybersecurity preparedness in the new normal?
The Lookout SSE solution enables organizations to secure their data while supporting a modern, anywhere anytime workforce with consistent cloud-delivered security policies regardless of where data is stored. In addition to integrating Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) and Secure Web Gateway (SWG) into a single platform, Lookout SSE integrates policy and data security enforcements deeply across web, SaaS and private applications. These include User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA), Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and Enterprise Digital Rights Management (EDRM). As a result, the Lookout SSE solution delivers an easy-to-use unified user interface across SWG, CASB and ZTNA that simplifies policy and reporting workflows.
What message would you like to give to the customers visiting the show and why should they meet you?
Participating under the theme of “Achieve freedom of control for your digital transformation,” GITEX will give us the opportunity to showcase how the Lookout security service edge (SSE) technologies enable organizations to protect, control and secure data along its entire path.
With global cloud service providers now offering local UAE-hosted services, the pace of the region’s transformation will further accelerate. There’s never been a better time to attend the most important technology event of the year to learn how to achieve the freedom of control to secure your modern enterprise.
Where can we find you at GITEX? (booth no and hall no)
