Ziften, a leading provider of all-the-time visibility and control for client devices, servers and cloud VMs, has announced its entry into the German cybersecurity market in partnership with IT services and solutions partner Sepago to assist with the planning, implementation, operation and support services for the Ziften Zenith security platform. Sepago becomes the newest partner in Ziften’s Activate Partner Program and joins via Ziften’s Fast Start programme for onboarding Microsoft Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) channel partners.
This follows Ziften’s previously announced strategic collaboration with Microsoft and integration of its Zenith endpoint detection and response (EDR) platform with Windows Defender ATP. The integrated solution provides joint customers with a cloud-based ‘single pane of glass’ to detect, view, investigate and respond to advanced cyberattacks and breaches on Windows, macOS and Linux endpoints – including physical, virtual and cloud-based systems.
“Ziften is 100% focused on delivering customer value through channel partners,” said Greg McCreight, SVP Worldwide Channels, Ziften. “With our Fast Start programme, we provide hands-on partnership to existing Microsoft channel partners, rapidly enabling them to solve customer’s post-breach security challenges. Sepago is one of the first joint Ziften and Microsoft security partners in EMEA giving us a huge opportunity working together to disrupt the endpoint security market in Germany. Working with Sepago, a leading Microsoft partner and security expert, we expect quick success in the market.”
“As a Microsoft channel partner, teaming with Ziften to offer its Zenith security platform integrated with Microsoft Windows Defender ATP was a perfect business and technology fit,” said Paul Luetke Wissing, Managing Director, Sepago. “All our customers stand to benefit from the seamless integration between Zenith and Windows Defender ATP, giving them protection and deep visibility across their Windows and non-Windows systems. Ziften has been easy to work with, and supportive throughout the entire process. We expect to be extremely successful offering this powerful security solution to our customers and providing the planning, implementation, operation and support services for the Ziften security solution.”
Together, Ziften, Sepago and Microsoft help organisations’ speed detection of attacks and zero-day exploits uncover the full scope of a breach, quickly respond to contain attacks and prevent recurrence, and increase overall security operations productivity. The integrated, cloud-powered approach supports the most complex, multi-endpoint, multi-cloud enterprise environments, giving commercial and government customers the capability to:
- Extend Windows Defender ATP to macOS and Linux systems: Customers can easily extend post-breach detection, investigation and response to any asset, anywhere – client devices, servers and cloud VMs. They get an integrated ‘single pane of glass’ supporting Windows, macOS, and Linux systems
- Secure multi-cloud, Windows and Linux environments: Organisations can readily overcome cloud monitoring and security concerns with visibility and control of all virtual operating systems deployed across any cloud service provider
- Conduct 6 month, lookback forensics: Customers can instantaneously search 6 months of rich machine timeline unifying security events from Windows, macOS and Linux systems – both physical and virtual
