The new partnership will enable Redington Value to distribute CyberArk’s Privileged Account Security Platform across the Middle East and Africa region.
“A leader in the area of privileged access management, CyberArk offers a strong portfolio of products. Redington’s wide presence in the region and focus on the value-add model aid the market expansion of CyberArk’s security solutions in the region, especially among key strategic verticals such as banks, oil and gas companies and other financial and public institutions,” says Ramkumar Balakrishnan, President, Value Distribution, Redington Gulf.
CyberArk has gained a significant market share within a few years, gaining popularity as a security solutions provider that protects organisations from cyber-attacks, which have made their way into the network perimeter. Among the company’s growing list of clientele is some of the world’s leading companies, including 40 per cent of the Fortune 100 and 17 of the world’s top 20 banks.
Earlier this week, CyberArk announced that it had completed the acquisition of Viewfinity, a provider of Windows least privilege management and application control software, for $30.5 million.
Tim Goodwin, Channel Director, EMEA, CyberArk, says, “CyberArk is focussed on protecting the privileged account credentials to prevent cyber attacks. Our Privileged Account Security Solution addresses the challenges of protecting privileged accounts and an organisation’s sensitive information. Our partnership with Redington Value is crucial as it gives us the much needed exposure in this market to distribute our key solutions.”
The company hopes to benefit from Redington Value’s wide coverage of enterprise customers and resellers within the whole of Middle East and Africa (MEA). “The partnership with Redington Value is a perfect match for our requirements. The extensive reach and representation it has in many countries across the region provide us with an excellent platform to penetrate deeper into the market. We are very excited about announcing the start of this relationship here at Gitex,” says Goodwin.
Redington Value has strengthened its security portfolio with tie-ups with key solution providers such as Shavlik, Fidelis and Niksun during the Gulf Information Security Expo and Conference (GISEC 2015). Earlier this month, the company also entered into a tie-up with cybersecurity solutions provider Fortinet as its new value-added distributor for the Middle East.
