Newcom Computer Systems UAE has announced that they have inked a distribution contract with the cybersecurity business of ST Engineering to distribute and market its three cybersecurity encryption products, the BIOS-SHIELD, DISKCRYPT and NETCRYPT, in the Middle East. The distribution contract will enable Newcom Computer Systems to provide a more comprehensive portfolio of advanced technology and cybersecurity solutions to its customer base.
ST Engineering’s cybersecurity business offers cyber-secure products and services in cryptography, cybersecurity engineering, digital authentication, SCADA protection, audit and compliance covering the national, government, critical information infrastructure and commercial sectors. It also has extensive experience in designing and building Security Operations Centres and the provision of services such as Security Operation Centre As-A-Platform, cybersecurity professional services, managed security services, as well as cybersecurity training and certification.
“In today’s ever-growing digital world, cybersecurity is very important as it encompasses everything that pertains to protecting our sensitive data, personal information, intellectual property, and governmental and industry information systems from theft and damage. Also, the sole purpose of data encryption is to protect digital files confidentiality as it is stored on computer systems and transmitted using the internet or other computer networks. To bridge the gap, ST Engineering has replaced the outdated encrypted storage system by modern encryption algorithms that plays a critical role in the security of IT systems and communications,” said Sandeep Bhagtani, the CEO of Newcom Computer Systems.
“Rapid digitalisation and increasing connectivity have led to networks and devices becoming increasingly exposed and vulnerable to cyber threats. To strengthen customers’ cybersecurity posture and resilience, we have continually focused our efforts towards developing advanced and well-rounded cybersecurity products that provide interoperable, multi-layered cybersecurity protection. Newcom Computer Systems’ extensive footprint in the Middle East will help extend our reach to customers in this part of the region, and accelerate our plans to bring our cybersecurity capabilities to a global customer base,” said Benjamin Ong, the Head of Cybersecurity Products at ST Engineering.
“We are excited to welcome ST Engineering on board to distribute their cybersecurity products in the Middle East region. The company has a very strong history and has launched many innovative products,” Bhagtani added.
