Help AG signs partnership agreement with BeyondTrust
Systems integrator to offer vendor's entire portfolio in the UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia
Security-focused systems integrator Help AG has signed a new partnership agreement with BeyondTrust, a cyber security company dedicated to proactively eliminating data breaches from insider privilege abuse and external hacking attacks.
The security specialist has already achieved the highest Platinum Partnership status with the vendor and will now offer the entire BeyondTrust portfolio to enterprises in the UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
"Insider threats are among the most challenging security issues that organisations face as they are extremely hard to detect and can lead to loss or exfiltration of large volumes of sensitive data. The solutions from BeyondTrust help mitigate the threat of data breaches while still enabling employees to be productive," said Stephan Berner, managing director at Help AG.
"Privileged Access Management (PAM) will form an integral part of the Help AG Cyber Security Blueprint and it is a solution set that we believe will be especially relevant to our customers from the government, banking and finance, and enterprise sectors."
Help AG will focus on increasing awareness around the vendor's PowerBroker Privileged Account Management solutions which enforce and audit access control policies, enabling IT teams to limit access to key systems, applications and data. The platform can be easily integrated with BeyondTrust's Retina Vulnerability Management solutions to increase intelligence and enable better decisions by understanding risk across multiple areas. Help AG will also deliver unified management, reporting and analytics of all the vendor's solutions by offering the BeyondInsight IT Risk Management Platform.
Having already qualified for Platinum Partner status, Help AG is now in the process of achieving the Authorized Support Partner and Professional Services Partner certifications with the vendor. This involves the complete training and certification of eight Help AG consultants and engineers over the next three months. With these qualifications, Help AG would be able to offer the highest level of support and value addition to regional customers in line with the vendor's best-practices.
"As part of our Global Channel strategy, we look to engage in partnerships with best of breed system integrators and clearly see Help AG as a leader in that space across Middle East," said John Andrews, director, Strategic Alliances, EMEAPAC at BeyondTrust.
"Knowing the experience and technical skill sets and their ability to service and support customers to the highest standards provides the perfect platform for delivery of a true Privilege Account Management (PAM) solution, where understanding a customer environment is an essential requirement."
