Redington Value, a leading value added distributor across Middle East and Africa, today announced a distribution partnership with Secureworks, a global leader in cybersecurity, for Secureworks’ cloud-native Taegis XDR throughout Middle East and Africa.
As organisations grow in technical complexities through digitisation, there is an ever-increasing number of endpoints and applications that become open to the threat of cyber-attack – especially within cloud environments and in the network infrastructure. It is imperative that digital transformation is protected from those evolving threats whilst allowing organisations to innovate and grow.
The Power of Taegis XDR
Secureworks Taegis XDR (Extended Detection and Response) is a cloud-native SaaS solution that blends more than 20 years of Secureworks’ security operations expertise and threat intelligence, including data from 1,400+ incident response engagements in the last year, to detect and respond to attacks across cloud, endpoint, and network environments. It helps InfoSec teams bridge their cybersecurity skills gaps while reducing costs where security blind spots previously existed.
“Redington Value delivers the comprehensive selection of cybersecurity solutions, and services, along with the channel enablement, recruitment and expertise needed to strengthen our global reach to new Taegis customers,” said Maureen Perrelli, Chief Channel Officer at Secureworks. “Together, we bring the power of Secureworks’ cloud-native Taegis XDR, and industry leading incident response services to Redington’s network of partners to expand and empower the cybersecurity community throughout the Middle East and Africa.”
Products and services available through the new distribution agreement include Secureworks Taegis XDR, Secureworks Taegis ManagedXDR, Secureworks Taegis VDR, and the Secureworks Incident Management Retainer, for proactive and emergency incident response.
Companies that join the Secureworks Global Partner Program have access to valuable partner-only benefits, such as deal registration, lead allocation, clear rules of engagement, and financial benefits, where permitted. Partners are also eligible to access marketing development funds.
Significant rise in cloud service adoption and proliferation of cyber-attacks is driving the need for SOC-as-a-service. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, and blockchain technologies for cyber defence has further opened new growth avenues in this market space. SOC-as-a-service also helps tackle the perennial challenge of a skilled cyber security professional’s scarcity. “With this partnership, and with Securework’s years of experience in delivering world class threat detection and response, we are providing our channel partners an unique opportunity to develop, position and sell their value-added services on top of the SOC service offerings. We are very excited with this partnership and the opportunities that come with it.” said Sayantan Dev, President at Redington Value.
