The event was focused on the Government sector with attendance from IT decision makers and stakeholders across various governments parastatals and agencies in Abuja. The IT Connect event theme was ‘Delivering Extreme Business Agility with Confidence’.

Check Point’s security Consultant Raphael Adaka through ‘Debunking Mobile Security Myths’ emphasized the importance of organisations investing in mobile threat defence solutions. In today’s business environment, using mobile devices is a business requirement and an employee expectation.


Most companies allow personal devices to connect to corporate networks. Employees use these devices to download personal apps and email – these pose security challenges and expose business networks to phishing scams and malware infections. One compromised device can let cyber criminals steal sensitive information, or even spy on closed-door meetings using device microphones or cameras. Breaches are detrimental to organisations and corrodes brand reputation and competitive advantage. Remediation is costly and some loss may be irreversible.


Check Point Mobile Threat Prevention analyses mobile threat risks at the app, network, and device level using a lightweight app and powerful cloud engine. This design allows for more comprehensive protection from known and unknown threats, and shifts resource-intensive analysis to the cloud to minimize any impact on user experience and device performance.


Organizations are also adopting techniques such as encryption and digital signing—or shifting from software-based encryption and digital signing to high assurance hardware-based solutions. Cryptography protects data effectively only if keys are secure and well managed. Cryptographic keys are a critical component of an organization’s ability to protect data from malicious attack while ensuring that the data is ready for use when needed. With unparalleled expertise in cryptographic key management, Thales provides solutions that manages keys efficiently and effectively to improve security, performance, and business continuity. Thales delivers innovative data protection products and services based on the most advanced technology and security best practices while maximizing operational efficiency, business continuity, and long-term scalability’’ says Rex Mafiana.
