For enterprises, these are testing times in the extreme. Never have IT departments – and the businesses that they support – been more exposed than they are today.

IT departments are challenged at every turn – with pressure from business leaders asking “is the business safe from cyber attacks?”; rapidly evolving IT estate complexity, including mobile rollouts, new cloud deployments and emerging software-defined data centres. IT relies heavily on its security teams, who are left to deal with disconnected security architectures and struggle with underfunding, and often a lack of incident investigation resources to be able to deal effectively with the waves of security incidents.

That said, several analysts cited Mandiant’s service revenues as a great addition to FireEye and it’s hard to argue with that.

Certainly, Mandiant is a good complement for FireEye, strengthening its security intelligence capability and increasing its detection capability at the endpoint (albeit not its endpoint protection capability), while also providing FireEye with a services arm.

Possible issues? Perhaps around efficient integration & synergies between the two technology platforms, although the two companies have held a relationship since 2012. What is possibly more of concern is the differences between the companies in...

It is day three of GITEX and I’ve been talking from morning to night with CIOs, IT executives and partners. But I’m not tired...I’m actually energised. Energised because now more than ever before I am seeing how Symantec is an integral piece of the puzzle at the heart of Middle East organizations – and that is exciting!

In making the rounds at this premiere IT event for the Middle East, one of the resounding subjects in every discussion has been cyber security threats. The recent blaze of high profile attacks in the region has brought to life the growing concern and deeper awareness of the threats that organisations are facing today and how to protect their information and minimize the risks from undue...
