Computerlinks has entered into a distribution partnership with Skybox Security, which provides security risk management solutions for global enterprises. Serving the Middle East region, Computerlinks will bolster Skybox’s presence in the region, enabling Skybox to satisfy growing market demands for its next-generation security solutions and further reinforce its continued commitment to the region as a growth market.
Skybox Security provides automated, non-intrusive tools that detect, prioritize, and drive remediation of critical risks such as exposed vulnerabilities and firewall configuration errors. The company has experienced tremendous growth, including 100 percent year-over-year revenue growth in 2012, and continues to build worldwide momentum with rapidly expanding channel and business development in EMEA. As cyber threats escalate, large enterprises and government and defense agencies worldwide see the value of deploying next-generation solutions that automatically turn volumes of network security data into a prioritized list of actions to help prevent cyber attacks and ensure continuous compliance with information security regulations.
Computerlinks will help Skybox increase its channel footprint and add significant momentum to Skybox’s sales, service and support capabilities as it seeks to accelerate penetration and increase market share.
“We sought a strategic partner to help us capitalize on the market opportunity in the Middle East — a distributor with a proven track record of taking innovative and disruptive technologies to market, building channel momentum, and providing value-added services,” said John Quinn, Sales Director EMEA Channels at Skybox Security.
Commenting on the agreement Lee Reynolds, Managing Director, Computerlinks, Middle East and Asia said, “It’s increasingly rare these days to find a technology that lives up to its next-generation billing and truly disrupts the market. Skybox’s integrated approach encompassing network security management, vulnerability management and threat management represents a great opportunity for our channel partners to be able to differentiate themselves in the market as enterprises look to keep pace with the advancements in threats seen in our Region. We look forward to working with the Skybox team and growing its business across the region.”
