Salt Communications recently attended GITEX 2016, which was based in Dubai, UAE. During our time at the event, we were very lucky to have met with a large number of technology companies, as well as other organizations in the Dubai region. Over the course of the week, it was increasingly clear that the Salt Communications solution had a superior product offering than many communication applications in this region, a region that is notoriously difficult for one to one calling. The Salt Communications solution offers the end user with control of their communications, as well as the confidence that their mobile conversations remain confidential.
Secure communications was a hot topic at GITEX with industry specialists from the ‘Cyber Security Conference’ in Dubai a week earlier having presented on how end-to-end solutions are becoming a necessity for the UAE. Due to the continuous increase in connected devices as well as cyber security issues, mobile security, and specifically mobile communications security was a key topic from the ‘Cyber Security Conference’ that continued into GITEX.
Discussions with large companies highlighted the need for secure and reliable communications within the UAE and surrounding countries. Salt Communications Marketing Manager, John Bailie attended GITEX, and uncovered opportunities for secure communications in the Middle East region. “Being able to attend GITEX has been an excellent opportunity for Salt Communications. We’ve been able to discuss how our secure communications solution is perfectly suited for companies and bodies in many different industries, as well as overall in the UAE region. With WhatsApp and Facetime voice calls not available in these regions, encrypted communication solutions that work, (like the Salt Communications solution) are a must.”
The GITEX Event provided Salt Communications with an excellent opportunity to unveil new opportunities in some of the middle east markets, and meet potential new business acquaintances. GITEX 2016 was a great success for Salt Communications, and our Marketing Manager thoroughly enjoyed meeting so many attendees and exhibitors who are interested in our encrypted communications solution.
Salt Communications would like to thank everyone at GITEX for hosting a thoroughly enjoyable week, as well Invest NI both based in Belfast and Dubai for organising this successful trip to the GITEX 2016. We look forward to connecting with everyone that we met at the event, during our week in Dubai, to form a successful business partnership.
