By Nanjinia Wamuswa | February 3rd 2015
Amiran Communications has launched a new security network to fight cyber crime in the region. The Palo Alto Networks Security Platform brings the world's most advanced Firewall to lead the fight against the vice.
It works through combined network, cloud and endpoint security to create an integrated platform that delivers automated prevention. This protects thousands of enterprises, government and service provider networks from cyber threats.
Amiran Communications General Manager Amir Grinberg said that following the recent attacks on Sony and Pentagon, cyber crime has once again risen to the top of the global agenda. He said governments and businesses fear that if such giants can be hacked, they can also face the same fate.
Pal Alto Network Security platform from Israel and American giant, Pal Alto brings together all key network security functions, including advanced threat protection, firewall, and URL filtering.
"These are just some of the cutting edge technologies that the company is committed to offering its partners, customers and the Kenyan people," said Grinberg.
Amiran Communications Managing Director and Balton CP Group Head of IT Nir Sher said the new partnership with Palo Alto Networks will allow the group to address cyber crime issues throughout all of East Africa.
"Our intention is to implement this new solution in Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda as well, anchoring our activities on Amiran here in Kenya," said Sher.
Balton CP Group CEO, David Reynolds said lack of security in cyber space undermines confidence in the information society, investment in Africa and economic growth. "It is our hope that the world will see that what is available in US and Europe for protection of our cyber space, is now also available in Africa."
