Xcitium and AVANT join forces in cybersecurity channel push


Xcitium and AVANT have entered into a partnership that boosts the technology solutions distributor’s cybersecurity strategy and gives Xcitium access to AVANT’s expansive network of Trusted Advisors.

AVANT will offer its Trusted Advisors the full range of Xcitium MDR/XDR solutions led by Xcitium’s malware prevention technology Zero Dwell Containment.

Michael Costantino, Vice President Strategic Partnerships, North America for Xcitium, said: “AVANT is leading the TSB/TSD ecosystem in cybersecurity. They have doubled down on education, engineering and enablement and can now arm their Trusted Advisors with a truly unified endpoint solution.”  

Shane McNamara, Executive Vice President of Engineering and Operations at AVANT said: 
“We know that cybersecurity has massive growth potential, and enhancing our security offering has been a focus and will continue into the future. The partnership with Xcitium is one more step forward in that direction.”

Our Trusted Advisors tell us they want access to full-service solutions. Xcitium’s endpoint security with the unique value proposition of Zero Dwell Containment is an important part of providing those solutions to our partners.”

In addition to offering a complete MDR/XDR solution, Xcitium’s Zero Dwell Containment has been tested to work with solutions from nine of the leading providers including Crowdstrike, Sentinel One and Sophos, giving AVANT’s resellers flexibility for value-add sales and future upsells in existing accounts.

McNamara said: “Cybersecurity is complex and challenging and there are no one-size-fits-all solutions, but Xcitium increases the range and depth of the options open to the channel. It enables our Trusted Advisors to position solutions that meet their customers’ needs for choice and breadth of capability.”   

Costantino said: “We are consistently displacing market leaders in the endpoint space. Thanks to our partnership with AVANT the channel can start winning in this space too. With Xcitium, AVANT’s Trusted Advisors will be able to play for wider opportunities and create more stickiness with their client base.”

“This is another milestone in Xcitium’s plan to become 100% channel-focused by the end of this year.”
