Cybereason, a leader in endpoint protection, has announced the launch of a new partner programme for the Middle East that will allow the region’s Value Added Resellers (VARs) and managed security service providers (MSSPs) to enhance their customers’ defence postures against an ever-evolving threat landscape.
The announcement follows Cybereason’s recent signing of Westcon-Comstor ME, which recently became a partner in the marketing and distribution of Cybereason solutions across the Middle East.
Cybereason’s recent expansion is being overseen by its Regional Director for the Middle East and Turkey, Tarek Kuzbari, an industry veteran who has spent years on the frontlines with some of the world’s leading security companies. “Cybereason sells entirely through the channel, and our success in the region depends entirely upon our ability to forge a rich partner ecosystem,” he said. “In the past year alone, we have struck agreements with some of the biggest technology and services providers in the world, including Westcon, WWT, Cerner and TrustWave.”
The Cybereason Defence Platform gives security analysts and operations teams the industry’s deepest visualised cloud services and the ability to stop targeted attacks. In addition, Cybereason is disrupting the global endpoint security market. The company’s approach centres on automating many tasks that previously required manual labor. Its cloud-based EPP (endpoint protection) platform delivers an industry-leading ratio of one analyst to 150,000 endpoints, compared with the benchmark of one analyst to just 20,000 endpoints.
Such achievements are gaining Cybereason international recognition. It was the top ranked current offering in ‘The Forrester Wave: Endpoint Detection & Response, Q1 2020’ report and had the highest rated platform in NSS Labs Inc’s Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Test. In addition, Cybereason was the only company to receive a ‘Best Buy’ product rating in SC Media’s 2020 Annual Endpoint Security Product Test.
“Recently, a Forrester-commissioned study showed that Cybereason’s customers reduce the likelihood of suffering a cybersecurity breach and enjoy a more than 300% return on investment over three years making us the ideal partner for enterprises looking to protect Middle East organisations’ endpoints from the cyberthreat landscape,” said Kuzbari.
Through the new regional partner programme, VARs and MSSPs will get access to Cybereason’s Partner Nest, which delivers top-flight sales and technical enablement. In addition, all partners are instantly eligible for the Cybereason Defenders League certification programme that empowers partners with skills to deliver a demo and a POC, enabling them to become experts. Furthermore, certified partners automatically join the Cybereason Defenders League, an exclusive community of experts with access to Cybereason’s founders, product team and key roadmap updates.
VARs will collaborate with a market leader in endpoint protection on areas such as business planning, marketing and deal-making, while gaining access to world-class sales and technical training. MSSPs will get access to discounted pricing models and can also opt to deploy Cybereason’s MDR-in-a-box offering, a practice building, all-encompassing programme that leverages a combination of flexible support services, methodology and Cybereason intellectual property.
“We are really excited to launch our Middle East partner programme because this is an innovative region that takes endpoint protection very seriously and we can’t wait to form new relationships with strong allies who will help us expand our footprint and bring world-class protection solutions to the market,” added Kuzbari.Click below to share this article
