AlienVault®, the provider of Unified Security Management (USM) and crowdsourced threat intelligence, has entered into a distribution relationship with Ingram Micro Inc., a global provider of technology solutions, mobility, cloud and supply chain services.
AlienVault chose Ingram Micro for its market reach and expertise in security and cloud. Under the new distribution agreement, Ingram Micro's extensive network of channel partners gain easy access to AlienVault's platform, which provides the essential controls required for effective threat detection, incident response and compliance management in cloud, hybrid cloud and on-premises environments.
"Our investment in the channel is a strategic part of AlienVault's growth," said Mike LaPeters, vice president of global channel sales at AlienVault. "Teaming with Ingram Micro will enable us to provide its network of partners with the robust capabilities of our unified security management platform. As the world's largest technology distributor with deep expertise in both on-premises and cloud security, Ingram Micro understands the needs of our market. We look forward to working with Ingram Micro to expand our footprint and enable channel partners to proactively detect and respond to today's threats in cloud, on-premises and hybrid cloud environments."
"Channel partners must be able to quickly deploy, effectively manage and successfully defend their customers' infrastructure and devices from today's rapidly evolving threats," said Eric Kohl, executive director, Advanced Solutions, Ingram Micro U.S. "Cyber security is a top priority for organizations of all sizes, which demands greater specialization from both the channel partner and the technology provider. With its innovative cyber security solutions including Alien Vault USM Appliance and USM Anywhere, AlienVault is a welcome addition to our comprehensive portfolio of advanced security products, solutions and services."
