Husni Hammoud talks to Tahawultech about ESET new products and solutions at GISEC 2022
Hammoud: 'employees need to understand exposure to threats and at the same time to be aware of how to protect their company and their data'
Husni Hammoud, Managing Director, ESET Middle East, spoke to Tahawultech.com at GISEC 2022 in a video interview about the company’s participation at the event and the portfolio of solutions the ESET team revealed at the show.
Tahawultech asked Husni about what it means for ESET to be participating at GISEC this year; “This year, we are almost done with the pandemic and we are starting to go out and to meet each other again physically; it’s great to see our partners and our customers and at the same time to see our colleagues face-to-face in one place.”
Husni also mentioned upcoming products in the interview; “Nowadays, everybody is looking at security. ESET is one of the major providers in security and we have a lot of innovation happening. ESET Protect is our new suite and we are moving ahead with a lot of R&D around advanced persistent threats and APT solutions. We’re also going to introduce our ESET Inspect product, an XDR solution that we are very proud of.”
Asked about the continuing threat landscape, Husni re-iterated the ongoing menace of ransomware and identity phishing, which are still common, he says. That means everybody needs a total security solution but that’s one piece of a bigger puzzle, involving perimeter protection, endpoint security, and data classification to secure access.
Husni also points out that, within a company, employee awareness and increased vigilance play a big part in defending against threats. “We need to raise the awareness on to how to work with your employees to ensure that they understand the threat exposure and at the same time to be aware of how to protect their company and their data.”
