Batelco has introduced Sophos' wireless security appliance to its portfolio. The two companies had signed a platinum partnership at GITEX technology week 2016.
The Sophos wireless firewall solution is designed to meet the specific requirements of small businesses. It supports various virtual access points that create independent, segregated networks in the same physical area for separate teams such as sales, marketing, guest users, and more. It also offers secure authentication and prevents rogue clients from connecting to networks.
“Our aim is to provide relevant security solutions for Bahrain’s businesses whether home or small businesses or large enterprises. Better network security ensures peace of mind and a more efficiently run operation,” said Batelco Bahrain CEO Eng. Muna Al Hashemi.
Sophos VP MEA Harish Chib said, "The inclusion of this Sophos solution by Batelco will be beneficial to SMBs as it will strengthen their IT infrastructure and build a secure environment that combats complex and sophisticated threats.”
