StarLink to Highlight Methodologies to Protect Against Cyber-Attacks

At the Cairo Security Camp 2015 in Egypt

Wednesday, September 15, 2015, Dubai, UAE: StarLink, the region’s trusted security-specialized “True” Value-Added-Distributor (VAD), will participate along with key vendors SafeNet and Arbor, as Gold Sponsors at the Cairo Security Camp 2015. The event takes place next week at Intercontinental City Stars on September 19th and 20th.


StarLink along with its vendors will provide valuable insight into protection against modern-day malware at the event conference. Arbor Networks, a leading provider of DDoS and advanced threat protection solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, will explain how deploying a DDOS mitigation solution is no more an optional direction. In addition, SafeNet, a global leader in data protection, will speak about the need to encrypt everything to secure breaches.


Avinash Advani, VP Business Strategy at StarLink, will take the stage to discuss how thinking like an attacker will enable organizations to achieve proactive, predictive advanced threat protection.


When asked about the importance of this event, he commented, “With the current state of the threat landscape in the MENA region, many organizations focus on a detect-and-respond strategy. This is highly reactive and relies on events that have already occurred before any action is taken. This leaves companies constantly reacting to incidents with a much greater risk of an attacker reaching their critical assets. Instead, organizations need to take a more evolved approach to protecting against cyber-attacks, so that they can focus on the most likely threats to their critical business assets, and thereby gaining effective security intelligence.”
