Security distributor Infinigate UK&I has pulled together the tools from various vendors to provide resellers with a solution that will cover customer data protection needs.
The channel player has cut the ribbon on its Next-Gen Cyber Observability (NGCO) framework that leans on the tools provided by five vendors: Anomali, Cybereason, Gigamon, LogRhythm and Vectra.
Combining the vendor cyber tools should provide resellers with a chance to provide greater risk visibility across customer networks. NGCO will offer a range of data protection tools, including Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), Network Detection and Response (NDR), and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR).
It has long been clear that resellers need to provide layers of security to protect users and fend off widening threats, and a solution approach is more likely to hit the mark.
NGCO combines the Gigamon Deep Observability pipeline with Vectra’s NDR platform, adding Cybereason’s NGAV and EDR to bolster endpoint protection. Added to that are LogRhythm’s AXON SaaS SIEM platform to analyse data and external threat intelligence from Anomali’s monitoring tools.
Lewis Dick, alliance director at Infinigate UK&I, said it wanted to develop an offering that resellers could put in front of customers concerned about cyber security.
“NGCO is a way to rein complexity through a complete and integrated cyber solution with the best from five specialist vendors, designed to be simple to implement,” he said. “Our partners’ corporate and enterprise customers with a Security Operations Centre will value a simplified approach to cyber observability through a single provider.”
The launch of NGCO tops a busy few weeks for the distributor, which has continued to bolster its product portfolio with more vendor signings. Security operations specialist Anomali, which is contributing to the NGCO offering, was only signed up at the start of this month.
Last week, the firm also inked a relationship with Bugcrowd, adding the vendor’s crowdsourced cyber security platform to the mix.
Jason Cowie, vice-president of global channel sales and strategic alliances at Bugcrowd, said the distributor would help extend its reach.
“As organisations grapple with the impact of the ever-growing cyber security skills shortage, our collaboration with Infinigate will support their partners and help their customers extend their in-house cyber security expertise, complementing their existing resources,” he said.
There have been other examples of value-added distributors developing their own bundles of vendor technologies, notable in the cloud and security spaces, in a move to bring together layered technologies.
