ManageEngine Security Solutions in collaboration with Axis Solutions Africa conducted a seminar yesterday at Meikles Hotel in Harare in a bid to grow their already existing market in the Zimbabwe Information and Communication Technologies Sector.
ManageEngine specializes in ICT solutions and ensures that companies utilize the existing IT services to ensure data safety for corporates, covering all components of IT operations, from active directory, network and IT management to security to service desk solutions.
In an interview with TechnoMag, the Regional Presales Head and Chief Evangelist for ManageEngine Karthik Ananda Rao articulated the purpose of the seminar and how ManageEngine is meant to benefit businesses.
“We have a growing customer base in Africa, and in Zimbabwe we have an already existing clientele with banks like Stanbic and First Capital together with companies Econet and Zimra who are also using our products,” adding, ” IT is the backbone of businesses and in the digital age it has become a requisite for organizations to run IT departments efficiently,”
The increase in compromised business e-mails , evolving ransomware variants, and vulnerabilities in serverless apps and hackers who utilise and develop threats is one of the reasons why in partnership with ManageEngine, Axis Solutions Africa has conducted the seminar.
“Today we are excited as Axis Solutions Africa that we have managed to host the successful event for bridging and managing ICT solutions with our partner,” the Group Technologist for Axis Solutions Africa Brian Mukudzavu said.
With the advent of new and more stringent privacy legislations, enterprises have begun to realise the gravity of data thefts and subsequent threats, but are yet to fully implement sustainable resilient cybersecurity strategies.
ManageEngine has urged all organizations, government ministries , banking and financial institutions to use their data protection softwares.
