Westcon-Comstor on display at ITWeb Security Summit

Westcon-Comstor Sub-Saharan Africa will be a sponsor at the ITWeb Security Summit and will use the event to provide customers with insights into different security solutions to secure their business.

The emphasis today is to develop inherent security solutions that can scale across a business's assets, whether they are on-premises or in the cloud, as well as follow the user and the device no matter where they are. Providing end-to-end solutions and using one vendor that fits all security threats remains a challenge, which is why the Westcon-Comstor security portfolio extends the full IT process, with solutions that ensure security policies follow the data and the user.

"Security needs to be approached in layers; there is no one solution that will guarantee a business is secure from end-to-end. Leveraging off our strong global vendor relationships, Westcon-Comstor has developed a security portfolio that is designed to secure your data, systems, network, reputation and the end-user," states Linsay Narayanan, Security Solutions Manager at Westcon-Comstor Sub-Saharan Africa.

As a sponsor at the ITWeb Security Summit, Westcon-Comstor will showcase how its security portfolio and value-added distribution services can assist customers in managing security threats proactively. This includes insight into its global logistics capabilities, digital distribution tools, applications and certified vendor-specific training programmes.

"In a constantly developing digital world, cyber security threats are evolving with attacks that change shape and form. Join Westcon-Comstor at the ITWeb Security Summit, where we will showcase solutions to make sure your business is up to speed on the latest technologies and vendor solutions to predict, mitigate and proactively manage cyber attacks.

"Migrating to the cloud and embracing digital transformation constantly creates new security risks; a partnership with Westcon-Comstor will assist customers to develop a well-defined security business-driven cyber security plan," ends Narayanan.

Join Westcon-Comstor at the 14th annual ITWeb Security Summit 2019, from 27-31 May, at the Sandton Convention Centre.
