A10 Networks sponsors MENA Information Security Conference

A10 Networks

A10 Networks sponsored the virtual MENA Information Security Conference 2020, that took place between 5-6 October. This is the fourth year in a row that the company has sponsored the event.  

A10 Networks had a keynote speaking slot with the theme “The Evolution of Networks from Cyber Resistance to Resilience – in an Age of Smart Cities, Digital Economies & IoT,” delivered by Yasir Liaqatullah, VP of Product Management at A10 Networks. Hesham Elsherif, Principal System Engineer at the company conducted a technical workshop focused on educating attendees about decryption of SSL /TLS flows, which is a pillar of the Zero Trust model.

“Enterprise networks are evolving. IoT’s proliferation is going through the roof, driven by smart city initiatives and industry 4.0. These massive IoT smart devices will inevitably be compromised and will become a zombie army. Legacy solutions involving detection of an attack using sampled traffic and analysing the data manually will not work as that is akin to finding a needle in a haystack. New solutions need to be inline, ML and AI-based, fully automated, totally integrated and capable of operating at hyperscale.” says Liaqatullah.

“MENA Information Security Conference is one of the region’s premier infosec events. We see it as a great platform to engage in high-level discussions with regional organisations about modern-day security challenges and how they can prepare their networks today for the cyber threats of tomorrow.”
