Always Thinking Ahead

I have worked with Michael during his time at SECNAP. I felt my networks were always safe and managed in the best possible way. Michael was always thinking ahead and could anticipate my requirements due to our global spread. Michael's development and knowledge of the security industry always proved valuable for Gazit when implementing new solutions and expanding to new regions.
