Rainbow joins EE and Samsung to champion mobile security & industry advancements
Rainbow, Northern Ireland’s largest independent telecommunications company, is spearheading a drive for increased awareness around mobile security, holding an industry leading event last Friday, 9th June 2017.
Global tech giants EE and Samsung were invited by Rainbow, EE’s only direct partner in NI, to partake in an exclusive breakfast seminar at Belfast’s Fitzwilliam Hotel, providing thought leadership and best practice on how to negate risk for individuals, employees and companies.
Guest speakers included Sam Shopland, Samsung’s B2B Account Director for EE, who is responsible for the launch of the new Samsung devices, services and solutions. He has over 15 years of telecoms experience, having previously held management positions with Vodafone, Nokia and Microsoft.
Ian Rowe is an Enterprise Mobility Specialist with Samsung UK, responsible for supporting the development and delivery of all technical solutions within the Samsung portfolio, including Samsung KNOX, Mobility and MDM integration. Ian has 30 years’ experience in telecoms, almost 20 of which are in mobile.
Kevin Boyle is the EE Area Manager for Northern Ireland and has worked in telecoms for 28 years with 15 years’ mobile experience.
David Beatty, Director of Technical Sales, Rainbow, said;
“Mobile security is now at the top of companies’ checklists following numerous high profile phone-hacking scandals and the widespread use of social media messaging services for inter and intra-company communications.
“While mobile systems can allow employees a greater level of independence, increase productivity and reduce costs, they can also leave businesses open to risk, which is why we wanted this event to showcase the measures that are available to safeguard their networks.”
Topics and themes that were covered during the well-attended event also included how Virtual Reality is changing the SME business model and how the latest handsets and tech can deliver a unified communications and working environment.
Kevin Boyle from EE, said;
“Events like these are vital to highlight the growing threat of hacking and cyber manipulation for companies of any size, whether sole practitioners, SMEs or multi-nationals.
“At EE, we are dedicated to ensuring our customers are at the forefront of telecoms technology and it is only through partners, such as Rainbow, that we can ensure these businesses are secure from emerging threats and are aware of what new technology is available to them.”
The event welcomed HR, IT, support staff and senior management from companies across Northern Ireland to be briefed about telecoms developments including WiFi calling, cloud-technology and mobile fleet network opportunities.
