San Mateo, CA (US) and London (UK), September 27th 2012 – AlienVault, the only open and collaborative Unified Security Management platform, combining built-in controls and full visibility, and VCW Security, a leading distributor and marketer of IT security products, today announced their new partnership. VCW has selected AlienVault’s Unified Security Management™ (USM) platform as the newest addition to their portfolio and will be distributing all solutions of the brand to their UK resellers. In addition to being able to resell AlienVault’s award-winning USM platform, VCW’s resellers will benefit from working closely with AlienVault’s technical team, who will actively support and help ensure successful installations and operational deployments for end-customers.
AlienVault’s Unified Security Management platform provides unprecedented security visibility and reliable defence by bringing together best-in-breed open source tools and the power of shared intelligence. Behind that collaborative effort is OSSIM, the de facto standard open source SIEM solution in use by tens of thousands of practitioners from over 140 countries.
Speaking about the new partnership, Graham Fox, Managing Director at VCW Security said, "When we first learned about AlienVault's products, we were very impressed by OSSIM, which combines 30 best of breed (open source) security tools to provide users with five essential security capabilities in a single management console. Add to that the fact that AlienVault and VCW have the same level of commitment to offer optimal customer service and support both towards resellers and end users, and we knew AlienVault was the right fit for VCW Security. It is clear that this partnership will be a very successful one.”
Mike Hemes, Regional Director of Northern Europe for AlienVault added, "VCW Security is known in the market for their edge. They work with brands that are seen as 'the next generation' - innovative, flexible and with state-of-the-art technologies. AlienVault is proud to be included in their portfolio. The dedication that VCW is showing towards their customers as well as their suppliers ensures our new partnership will turn into a long term relationship.”
As part of its channel program, AlienVault will support VCW Security by offering technical and sales training, participate in joint marketing and selling programs, provide first and second level technical support, and collaborate with partners to make sure that customers have local support from experienced professionals who are security experts and knowledgeable about their particular industry.
