Acunetix has signed a distribution agreement with Bulwark Technologies. Under this agreement, Bulwark’s channel partners will offer the vendor’s web application security solutions to enterprise customers across the Middle East.
A recent study by Acunetix found that over 55 percent of websites scanned over a 12-month period contained high-severity vulnerabilities that could risk not only brand and reputational damage, but data breaches and major fines associated with these. With web application vulnerabilities increasingly posing serious threats to organisations’ overall security posture, now is the time for organisations to make application-level security not only a priority, but a fundamental requirement.
As part of the agreement, Bulwark will assist Acunetix to build and grow the vendor’s success story in the region through its channel network and a complete focus on partner enablement. The distributor will also organise sales and technical training sessions along with various marketing initiatives to boost sales in the Middle East. Bulwark will also provide technical support to the channel community through its team of technical experts.
Jose Thomas Menacherry, Managing Director, Bulwark Technologies, said, “Bulwark is a focused and specialized Distributor in the cybersecurity area. There is a perfect synergy between our companies. The addition of Acunetix in our product portfolio complements our current offering of security solutions and would provide Bulwark with new avenues for growth and revenue opportunities for both of us.’’
Christina Nicole Woodward, VP Sales, Acunetix, said, “Acunetix technologies are second-to-none, providing cutting-edge vulnerability detection and the only product on the market able to detect out-of-band vulnerabilities automatically. We are confident that by partnering with Bulwark we will continue to increase awareness in the Middle Eastern region. Bulwark consists of an impressive portfolio of customers covering different verticals in the region, has a wide network of partners and houses a competent team of technical, sales and marketing experts. All these attributes make Bulwark a valued partner.’’
