StarLink, Venafi in distribution deal
Dubai, December 24, 2013
Venafi, a leading cyber security company, has appointed value-added distributor StarLink, as its strategic distributor for the Middle East, Turkey and Africa.
As per the deal, StarLink will sell Venafi products and solutions through its channel partners across the region to its enterprise and government customers, said the company in a statement.
Venafi VP of marketing Gregory Webb said: "For too long organisations have blindly trusted keys and certificates and have little visibility into their threat risk exposure. Malicious actors have taken note of this blind trust, and use it nefariously against organisations which have no ability to detect anomalies or to respond to attacks on trust.
He pointed out that threats and attacks were increasing and IT security executives faced new challenges with trust exploits.
"While organisations adopt cloud computing and allow employee-owned devices onto the network, the challenge of securing company data increases exponentially," he stated.
"The results are clear: terabytes of valuable information and IP are being pilfered from them before the compromise is even detected,” added Webb. - TradeArabia News Service
