GateLock, a leading cybersecurity solutions provider, has recently formed a strategic alliance with ESET and Safetica, two renowned information security software and smart solutions providers.

This partnership strengthens GateLock’s position as a premier provider of their smart solutions in Egypt and the Middle East. The announcement was made during GateLock’s client conference, which highlighted the latest innovating security solutions.

He added: “With the rapidly evolving landscape of cyber threats and their growing complexities, it is absolutely essential to prioritise the implementation of top-notch information security solutions across distribution channels that deal with customers. This necessitates the presence of highly knowledgeable experts who possess a deep understanding of the ever-changing global cyber environment to effectively address the security requirements of customers.”

Mohamed Haroon, the Co-Founder and CEO of GateLock, expressed his delight with the partnership, which aligns with GateLock’s strategic objectives for expansion to deliver cutting-edge security solutions in Egypt and the Middle East. He said: “With the proliferation of Digital Transformation technologies and the rise of Artificial Intelligence, companies now view information and customer data as their most valuable assets. In light of the growing prevalence of cyber attacks, cybersecurity has become an indispensable component of business strategies across sectors, as well as a key consideration for government strategies. Consequently, it is necessary that we shift our focus from reacting to such incidents to proactively preventing them. By prioritising investments in cybersecurity measures, we can stay ahead of potential threats and enhance our ability to detect and mitigate attacks at an early stage.”

ESET’s solutions stand out due to their seamless workflow, which has no impact on the performance of various devices. Additionally, they offer a user-friendly interface, making it convenient for users of all skill levels to make use of the security programs.
