Fidelis Cybersecurity has announced a partnership agreement with e92plus to become the strategic distribution partner for the vendor’s Fidelis Elevate solution across the UK.
e92plus is a distributor with more than 25 years’ experience in security, wireless and data protection technologies. Fidelis joins its growing partner community, which aims to empower VARs, MSSPs and cloud specialists to provide the most advanced breach detection, endpoint detection and response, and deception solutions.
Fidelis will be part of the e92plus cyber security portfolio, with Fidelis Elevate being the only solution that automates detection and response of attacks and data leakage. By integrating network visibility, endpoint detection and response, data loss prevention and deception, Fidelis Elevate provides understaffed and overwhelmed security teams with greater context, enriched analysis and automated workflows. As a ‘turnkey’ solution, the platform enables security teams to focus on the most urgent threats rather than spending precious time validating and triaging thousands of alerts.
“Despite attacks becoming more advanced, organisations are continuing to work with dated, complex and inefficient security infrastructures – leaving security operations professionals feeling overwhelmed and unable to effectively detect and respond to threats,” said Eddie DeWolfe, VP for global channels and alliances(pictured). “As a result, sophisticated attacks are going undetected for days, weeks or even months. Simplifying the security stack is therefore a critical first step. Companies need a unified solution that offers full visibility and delivers complete, contextual perspective across the entire enterprise environment.”
“Our partnership with e92plus will meet the market demand for enterprises looking to speed up detection, empower threat hunting and automate response – providing accuracy, clarity and certainty for security professionals,” concluded DeWolfe. “With its partner community, e92plus has a proven track record of bringing the latest innovations and technology to the market. As such, we are confident that its unique position will help to meet the demand for a unified solution by introducing our platform to the UK market, while enabling us to grow our business,” concluded DeWolfe.
Mukesh Gupta, CEO and founder at e92plus, said: “The threat landscape evolves so quickly, and it’s no longer enough to simply add layers of defence to your network. Indeed, Gartner has recommended the shift from prevention-focused defence to one that prioritises detection and response. For partners, this represents a significant opportunity to growth their cybersecurity business, and help organisations who want to take a proactive approach but may lack the necessary skills and expertise.”
“We’ve chosen Fidelis Cybersecurity as our partner as we recognise that it has both outstanding technology that’s proven with the world’s biggest brands and government departments, and a commitment to helping drive the business of its channel partners. Its platform helps consolidate the security stack, which many organisations are looking to do, and use automated detection and response. This supports partners looking to provide more managed services, as well as addressing the skills shortage that affects the ability of IT teams to embrace this approach,” Mukesh continues.
The Fidelis Partner Programme was recently re-launched, so partners have substantially increased value, margins, and sales in offering Fidelis solutions to their customers. Benefits include increased sales resource, an extensive training programme with online as well as classroom learning, personalised support, and enhanced MDF support.
“With our enhanced Partner Programme, investment in talent and local partnerships, Fidelis’ investment in the channel proves its commitment to helping companies detect and respond to the advanced threats of today and tomorrow,” said Nick Lantuh, CEO, Fidelis Cybersecurity. “Our partnership with e92plus is another step towards achieving our goal of creating a stronger foundation within our worldwide partner network. It will help us to ensure that our customers have the best possible advice and guidance when it comes to simplifying their complicated and efficient security stacks.”
