Agility lands in Chile and targets Latin America

The Eagle Cloud security platform, based on a subscription model, becomes part of the Chilean CompuNet portfolio.

Agility, a company focused on application lifecycle infrastructure, information security and data privacy, has started its internationalization process.

The company entered into a partnership with CompuNet, Chile’s IT and cybersecurity solutions consultancy, which now includes the Eagle Cloud platform in its portfolio. Based on the subscription model, the platform brings together three offerings in an integrated way: Privacy Operations, Threat Intelligence and Multicloud Application Security.

Fábio Soto, CEO, Agility, said: “Our Eagle Cloud platform makes extensive use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) resources so that we can provide guidance to customers in terms of security and make development processes safer and simpler, providing visibility for decision-making and remediation of vulnerabilities. The platform is multicloud, as we serve several clouds.”

According to him, the second step is to consolidate operations in Chile, seeking other partners, to later expand to other countries in Latin America, such as Peru, Bolivia and Colombia.

Soto said: “CompuNet is a security-focused company, partnering with major global security vendors. They have a strong presence in government, the financial sector, energy and healthcare and we expect to grow in these verticals.

“We are also looking for more channels in Chile, CompuNet is headquartered in Santiago, but we understand that there are other regions that we can expand with other partners.

“From the beginning, when we decided to build a large-scale platform, internationalization was always in our plans.”

For the CEO, the pandemic made companies change their business models very quickly and move to the cloud. Security and privacy are naturally one of the top priorities for companies right now.

Soto said: “The imminent migration of applications to the cloud accelerates the need for organizations across all sectors of the economy to prioritize the adoption of services and technologies that protect business and customer information since application development, especially now that requirements have increased due to the Brazilian General Data Protection Law (LGPD in Portuguese).”

Soto emphasizes that the transformation takes place at a critical moment for those who decide on the business model to be adopted.

“A company that has never tried cloud services because its business model didn’t match it will have to migrate or it won’t adapt to the new times. The Agility Eagle Cloud platform was designed to help customers on this journey,” he adds.

Solution

Soto explained that Eagle Cloud operates with three built-in modules. One with a focus on Privacy Operations, the second on Threat Intelligence, with AI connected to context-based vulnerability management, and the third on Multicloud Application Security, which gives security visibility into the entire application lifecycle, from the first line of code to container image security, through to cloud compliance.

Connected to the Threat Intelligence module, the client gains visibility into what is happening in the world and knows if those attacks that are taking place can reach it.

Each of the modules is a product, the customer can choose to have one or all, according to their needs, as well as the channel, which can specialize in one or more modules.

“We have partners that specialize in Threat Intelligence and do not sell the privacy part, another that only sells privacy and there are those who specialize in the three modules,” explained Soto.

“Our great differential is Agility, we deliver security very quickly. For application development, on the same day you get security visibility, transforming a DevOps treadmill to DevSecOps very quickly. Threat Intelligence, on the other hand, has a great differential, which is to bring context to the information, generating insights for the customer.”

Today, the customer profile is basically large corporations, but Agility wants to expand its solutions to medium-sized companies. It seeks this pulverization and scale, but hopes to do this with current partners, around 20 integrators.

“I prefer to have a not so large number of channels, but with a lot of quality, with a good team and consultative work with clients. We are more focused on looking for new channels in Chile than in Brazil,” said Soto.

“We are on the Synnex Westcon Comstor marketplace, it is a very important strategic partnership for us, but we have partners who came independently from Synnex, who sought us out to be our channel and offer our products in their managed services.”
