Teneo, the specialist integrator of next-generation technology, is among the first 11 widely-respected global partners to join Corelight's new channel programme.
The partnership is designed to enable the agile adoption of Corelight's powerful network traffic analysis and forensics capabilities for enterprise and government organisations.
The agreement provides Teneo with commercial benefits including enhanced access to demo equipment, customer subscription renewal tracking and training and education.
According to the Center for Cyber Safety and Education, by 2022, there will be a shortage of 1.8 million information security workers. Furthermore, as network security threats have evolved rapidly in recent years, identifying them and determining suitable incident responses can no longer be the domain of a comparatively small community of very highly-skilled individuals.
Meanwhile, the 2018 Cost of a Data Breach Study conducted by the Ponemon Institute reported that the average time taken to detect and contain a mega-breach (ranging from one million to 50 million records lost) was 365 days, with a smaller-scale breach taking 266 days to identify.
Corelight makes incident responders and threat hunters more efficient and effective. It achieves this breakthrough by merging the power of Bro - a powerful open source network visibility platform created in 1995 by Corelight founder Vern Paxson - with a suite of enterprise features that dramatically improve Bro's performance and usability. Stand-out elements of the new suite include an intuitive web-based management UI, comprehensive API, native NIC shunting, sensor health metrics, and automated data export to Splunk, Elastic, Kafka, Syslog, S3, and more.
Greg Bell, CEO of Corelight, explained: "Corelight is quickly becoming the definitive tool used by enterprises across all verticals to make sense of their network traffic in real time. We aim to build meaningful mutual relationships with new partners that share our laser-focused mission: to make the world's networks safer. We do that by helping our customers access the right security-relevant data at the right time."
Adam Beckman, Teneo's VP of Global Partner Development, said: "Networks and data volumes are evolving so fast that our customers' security tools and teams have a hard job keeping up. Regularly faced with an inundation of alerts, it can be a relentless challenge for them to determine where the real threats lie."
Beckman added, "Corelight saves our customers time and makes incident response and threat hunting so much easier. For example, implementation takes just 15-30 minutes, massively reducing the lengthy customization time typically needed to get the best out of Bro."
He concluded, "I'm very pleased that Teneo is one of the first partners to join the Corelight channel programme. With Corelight's support, we're able to accelerate our customers' ability to interpret the right network data and increase the overall effectiveness of their internal security teams."
