SECURITYFOCUS LAUNCHES SOLUTIONS PARTNER PROGRAM.
"The exponential growth of IT security vulnerabilities and cyber threats is a universal problem. By building strategic partnerships with the leading security VARs, SecurityFocus can extend our threat management systems to the global market," said Allan Peters, SecurityFocus vice president of worldwide sales. "We are investing our resources in a select group of partners around the world who are able to utilize their security expertise to deliver leading edge services coupled with superior customer service."
Barry Steinberg, CEO of Manchester Technologies, welcomed today's announcement, commenting, "Today's launch of the Solutions Partner Program signals a significant commitment to building a successful network of high level solution providers capable of delivering comprehensive security solutions. We are excited about the new opportunities available to us, and look forward to a long-term, strategic relationship with SecurityFocus."
SecurityFocus Solutions Partners are supported by customized sales and technical training, lead referral programs, demonstration accounts and a partners-only Internet resource site. Qualified partners are also able to leverage the strength of SecurityFocus' leadership position in the security community by co-branding SecurityFocus services, newsletters and collateral. The Solutions Partner Program launches with a strong presence in major global markets, including partnerships with Corsaire (United Kingdom), Dimension Data Ltd. (South Africa), Fort Alert (Denmark), Intersix Technologies (Brazil), Manchester Technologies (United States), NST-Japan (Japan), Portcullis Computer Security (United Kingdom), Secure Network Group (United States) and Sensecurity (Singapore).
"Customers today are faced with security threats that are increasing in number and sophistication," said Russ Hailey, CEO of Secure Network Group. "As a SecurityFocus Solutions Partner, we are able to deliver the comprehensive and timely vulnerability information customers need to protect one of their most valuable assets, their IT infrastructure."
SecurityFocus offers the following threat management systems through the Solutions Partner Program:
ARIS Threat Management System -- a comprehensive and customizable security threat management system, providing early warning of attacks and bulletproof countermeasures to prevent attacks before they affect the enterprise.
SIA Security Intelligence Alert Service -- the most comprehensive and customizable alert service for environment specific vulnerabilities and malicious code alerts.
Vulnerability Database -- the world's most comprehensive and up-to-date source of vulnerability information.
"SecurityFocus services represent an innovation in information security threat management," said Martin O'Neal, Corsaire managing director. "An effective security solution starts with a position of knowledge. SecurityFocus threat management systems provide the vital knowledge and advanced warning needed to proactively mitigate threats and thwart attacks before they occur."
"When Aristotle said 'All men by nature desire knowledge' he didn't only mean hackers! The information that SIA and ARIS provide has helped reverse the trend, now the defenders are as informed as the attackers making only one of their jobs harder. These services provide a ROI never seen before in IT Security, giving that all valuable time back to the IS manager," said Mark Lane, managing director of Portcullis.
