NetClarity, a leading internal security firm for businesses, has partnered with ADS SAS, an ICT value added distributor, to offer security services in Africa.
The partnership will target businesses and enterprises with to 10 to 25,000 devices, which in essence covers startup businesses to the big macro-enterprises.
The workplace has attracted various devices from employees and some use these devices to access company documents posing a risk of leakages through unsafe or unprotected devices. According to NetClarity, though it is cheaper to let employees bring their own devices, it is also a loophole for hackers.
‘’We consider NetClarity’s solutions to be most adaptable to the African markets, especially knowing that Africa is one of the fastest growing markets for IT mobile users and the internal network security challenge is increasingly one of the largest to be solved,” said Jean Kaikati, President, ADS SAS.
Kaikati added that the African economy as a whole has been growing steadily over the last 10 years as a result accelerating the adoption of new technologies to include more affordable IT solutions.
“This situation creates challenges for the enterprise in absorbing a myriad of additional IT users. The agentless architecture and ease of implementation of NetClarity’s solutions helps to secure the enterprise networks, and makes NetClarity the ideal NAC solution for our Africa users,’’ he said.
Having a solution to protect all devices from vulnerability is one aim NetClarity has. The company’s internal security appliances identify and control all of the devices that have access, or are trying to gain access, to the network.
“ADS has the unique specificity to cover all the African countries through their local Value Added Resellers (VARs), and they have done it successfully for the past 15 years. NetClarity is now able to increase its footprint and support Africa with local sales and technical knowledge for the benefit of the end user customers,” Bernard Girbal, Vice President, International Operations at NetClarity said.
