DUBAI & BOSTON - Monday, October 13th 2014 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Core Security®, a leading provider of attack intelligence solutions, today at Gitex Technology Week 2014 highlighted the success of its partnership with StarLink, a leading IT compliance and threat driven security solutions provider serving customers in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa. Core Security signed a master distributor agreement with StarLink last year and has since signed on many prominent companies in the region, including Dubai Air Navigation Services, Mobily and Eskan Bank.
The Core Secured® partner program expands the geographic reach of Core Security through alliances with leading information security service organizations worldwide.

As the trusted security advisor of the Middle East, Turkey and Africa, StarLink keeps organizations in this region on the cutting edge of vulnerability management with the Core Attack Intelligence Platform.
“Core Security’s advanced solutions have been well received, and their team has demonstrated a strong commitment to serving customers in this region,” said Avinash Advani, director of business strategy at StarLink. “Their flexibility and dedication to meeting these companies’ challenges has been critical to the success of this partnership.”
