Trend Micro to Reinforce Cybersecurity Defenses at GITEX Africa 2023

The company will showcase its multi-layered security solutions to safeguard digital journeys of the organizations in Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia

Marrakech, Morocco, May 31, 2023 Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in cybersecurity, is set to showcase its cutting-edge cybersecurity solutions at GITEX Africa 2023, the largest government and business tech and startup event in the African continent. From 31st May to 2nd June 2023, the groundbreaking event will unfold at Boulevard Al Yarmouk in Marrakech, Morocco, creating an exciting hub of technological innovation.

The cyberthreat landscape in North Africa is rapidly evolving, with increasingly sophisticated threats posing a significant challenge for the regional organizations. According to Trend Micro's Annual Cybersecurity Roundup 2022 – Rethinking Tactics, the company detected and blocked a staggering 181 million threats in key markets like Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria last year. Of these, 153 million were email threats, 75K were URL hosted attacks, 6 million were malware attacks, and 2.3 million were URL victim attacks. These statistics underline the critical need for organizations in the region to adopt a multilayered security approach to protect against a wide range of modern threats and GITEX Africa is the right platform to create awareness about the evolving threat landscape and its implications.

“Security is not a product, it's a process. It's not about having the latest tools, but about continuously adapting and improving our strategies to stay one step ahead of cyber threats,” says Gareth Redelinghuys, Country Managing Director, African Cluster, Trend Micro. “Collaboration and partnerships are crucial for addressing cybersecurity challenges in Africa. Efforts are being made to governments, international organizations, and private sector entities by investing in training programs, workshops, and conferences to build local expertise and raise awareness about cyber threats.”

“The rapid digital transformation has led to an increased dependence on technology,” said Ashraf Serag, Country Manager for Egypt and North Africa at Trend Micro. “It is crucial to establish a strong and comprehensive security approach to address the emerging threats stemming from vulnerabilities in this process. Occasions like GITEX Africa offer a valuable chance to promote awareness about advanced cybersecurity and enhance the digital infrastructure of the region. We remain unwavered in our commitment and will do everything in our capacity to protect organizations in the region from the digital threats that lie ahead and re-enforce their growth journeys in this digital era.”

At GITEX Africa, Trend Micro will showcase its state-of-the-art cybersecurity solutions, including Trend Cloud One, Trend Vision One, Trend Micro Network One, Trend Micro Workforce One, and SMB solutions. These solutions are built to secure organizations from modern security threats across all endpoints including email, servers, networks, cloud and more.
