On 21-23 May 2017, Dubai hosted the forth forum of GISEC Gulf Information Security Expo & Conference. The event is dedicated to the information security issues. The conference gathered together over six thousand experts to discuss the current threats, market needs, and cutting-edge security solutions. Executives and leading experts from private and public companies of different industry sectors from 15 countries delivered their reports during the exhibition.
For SearchInform this event became a good and logical continuation of expansion in the markets of the Gulf countries. The company started establishing cooperation with the Middle East countries in 2016. Also, that year for the first time the company participated in the GITEX Technology Week where it presented its products and held the first negotiations with integrators from the UAE and Saudi Arabia.
SearchInform CEO, Sergei Ozhegov, says, “Taking into account the specific nature of the product and Russia’s relations with Europe and the USA, the Middle East and Asia are the most attractive markets. We think that the Russian technologies can be in demand in various areas – from retail to oil and gas industry. And the participation in GISEC proved us right once again. Three days of the event were very intensive. We met our clients and established contacts with three dozen new interested ones. We discussed details of cooperation with a new partner, system integrator Aerizo, and agreed on cooperation with seven more providers of our solutions to the Middle East market.”
“In this market there is an understanding of what work time control systems and information security systems are. Similar systems are already being implemented there. In general, those are solutions from the West, and people want to compare them with the solutions we offer. At the beginning of the cooperation with SearchInform, it was us who were appealing to the target audience, and now the target audience itself demonstrates interest. In the framework of GISEC, we were arranging the presentations of the products according to the potential clients’ requests, and this is a good tendency,” explains Narender Singh, the owner of Gobind Security Systems and the main partner of SearchInform in the UAE.
