Nottingham, UK (PRWEB UK) 16 November 2015
Proactive IT security distributor Alpha Generation Distribution has announced a new partnership with BlackStratus, an expert in Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). BlackStratus has a proven track-record in innovative technology for detecting, analysing and responding to threats, with a uniquely flexible pay-as-you-go model.
“We’re pleased to announce our new partnership with BlackStratus,” says Chris Walsh, Sales Director at Alpha Generation Distribution. “It’s a significant decision to focus on a two-tier model and indirect relationships with resellers and end-users, but it’s exactly what is necessary in the UK IT channel. It’s important to understand clients' needs in depth, and that’s just one aspect of how we can work with BlackStratus moving forward.”
BlackStratus provides a suite of SIEM, Log Management and SIEM-as-a-Service products, each targeting a specific segment of the market, varying types of infrastructure, and differing compliance requirements. LOG Storm helps people manage the deluge of log data that inundates them every day, while SIEM Storm is an enterprise/carrier-class way to gather, correlate, and report on security activities.
Crucially, each of these products can be deployed in the cloud, on-premise, or as a hybrid solution. This flexibility unlocks new opportunities for resellers, service providers, and web hosts to expand their service portfolio without risk or capital expense.
“BlackStratus addresses some very real needs that we’ve identified in the UK channel,” adds Walsh. “Partners want a way to sell SIEM as a wrap-around to firewalls, IPS, DDoS, and other security services. Until now, they didn’t have the infrastructure to do so – the only choice was a big investment that would only be recouped over 12-24 months. With BlackStratus’ ‘pay-as-you-grow’ model, partners can take a dashboard and then simply pay as they sign up clients. It makes the whole thing a much safer bet, and an easier business decision.”
“Alpha Generation Distribution understands how our products connect on demand for SIEM services in mid-tier and SME organisations through Managed Service Providers,” says Terry Boazman, VP EMEA at BlackStratus. “Our multi-tenant SIEM technology lets MSPs and MSSPs meet that growing demand for SIEM services, at a price point that suits the mid-tier and SME market. Meanwhile, Alpha Generation Distribution’s reach in the UK gives us outstanding access to this target market. We look forward to working closely with Alpha Generation and its partners to build services that protect organisations from malicious attacks on their sensitive information.”
