Mohamed Khairy is our December Guru...Security talk

1-Mohamed, can you please introduce yourself to our readers?

 Hello to all! I am Mohamed Khairy and I am one of the Data Center Technical Solutions Experts Team @ CoEX. I was studying Computer science in Modern Academy in Maadi because of my love to computers and technology and graduated in 2005 and since then and I work in this fascinating field and I had 4 work experiences in different countries before joining CoEX.


 2- I understand that you are passionate about IT and Technology, what fascinates you most?


I’ve grown up with technology and simply find it amazing. I find it amazing how I can search for anything I want on the web. I find it amazing that I can learn how technology works and use it to solve problems and make useful things and solutions.

Think to yourself - how proud would you feel if you had an issue and you discover how to solve it using technology products.  You can then turn it into a solution model that can be used by many people to fix things that annoy them in their daily operations. This is how I would define passion.

I want to make a difference in this world and to improve myself as a person, and I believe that technology and IT can take me anywhere I would like. Security, programming, web design... the possibilities are endless. 

Passion to me is to believe strongly in something and it makes you feel great. For me helping people and customers by providing them with a super solutions and helping them also get tech that can improve and better the quality of their environment is a something that makes me feel so great.


3- Can you explain to us how Identity and access management solutions work?

Identity and access management (IAM) is the security discipline that authorizes users to access corporate systems and information. It helps prevent fraudulent access and use of data that could potentially affect the business, its partners, or even worse, its customers.

Identity and access management (IAM) also brings great values to organizations in reducing IT management cost, enhancing employee productivity, and increasing compliance efficiency. 

Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 (FIM) can help you to standardize identity and access management across your organization by delivering self-service identity management for users, automates lifecycle management across heterogeneous platforms for administrators, and provides a rich policy framework for enforcing corporate security policies on users, devices, enterprise applications, data center servers and business processes.

6-Away from technology, do you have any other hobbies or passions?

 Two, Squash and Shooting. 


 7- Any advice to anyone that wants to be an IT guru?

 The first piece of advice I have is that, if you are interested in technology, you should pay attention to whatever aspect of the industry you plan on entering. Read books, browse the Internet for information on your field of choice, and practice them, whether it is hardware, software technology, or programming. It never hurts to stay informed J


8- How can people contact you for any technical inquiries?
