Security expert and distribution partner Cohort Technology—with Broad-based reseller and technology partner network—to enter unified security management Market

San Mateo, CA (US) and London (UK): AlienVault, the leading Unified Security Management provider committed to making security visibility complete, simple and affordable, has confirmed its new partnership with Cohort Technology, a leading distributor and marketer of IT security products. Cohort will add AlienVault’s Unified Security Management™ (AV-USM™) platform to its portfolio, offering all solutions to their customers across the UK and Ireland. Cohort and AlienVault will be able to combine their technical expertise so that customers will be actively supported to ensure smooth and successful installations and operational deployments.

 

AlienVault’s Unified Security Management platform provides unprecedented security visibility and reliable defence by bringing together best-in-breed open source tools and the power of shared intelligence. Behind that collaborative effort is OSSIM, the de facto standard open source SIEM solution in use by tens of thousands of practitioners from over 140 countries.

Cohort Technology Managing Director Grahame Smee, said, “We are delighted to partner with AlienVault. The fact that they have pre-integrated so many of the necessary security tools into their Unified Security Management platform means organisations with smaller security teams or budgets now have an enterprise-class solution for compliance and threat management. Add to that the fact that AlienVault and Cohort have the same level of commitment to offer optimal customer service and support both towards resellers and end users, and we knew AlienVault was the right fit for us."

Richard Kirk, SVP International Sales for AlienVault added, “We’re thrilled with this agreement, as Cohort Technology has a very similar approach and ethos to our own. Given Cohort Technology’s strong relationships with many of the UK and Ireland’s largest organisations, their proven security-industry track record of success, and a customer-centric business focus, this partnership will enable AlienVault to provide its award-winning Unified Security Management platform to a larger market.”

As part of its channel program, Cohort Technology will benefit from AlienVault’s technical and sales training, joint marketing and selling programs, and first and second-level technical support. AlienVault will collaborate with Cohort Technology to make sure that customers have local support from experienced professionals who are security experts and knowledgeable about their particular industry.

AlienVault has won numerous awards this year, including Red Herring’s Top 100 Global and Top 100 North America awards, and TechWorld’s ‘Security Product of the Year’. The company was also named a 2013 Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum, an AlwaysOn OnDemand Top 100 winner, and it was ranked 84 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500
