In an effort to strengthen its capabilities within the managed security service space, Help AG has entered into a partnership with Skybox Security that will see the integration of Skybox's security management solution into Help AG's Cyber Security Operations Centre (CSOC).
While the move will add critical security analytics capabilities into Help AG's Managed Security Services (MSS) offering, the company will also offer Skybox Security Suite to clients in the Middle East.
Stephan Berner, CEO at Help AG, said: "The partnership with Skybox will enable our MSS customers to drive even greater value from their existing cyber security investments with threat management across the entire attack surface.
"As a reseller dedicated to IT security alone, we are keen to bundle our expertise in consultancy, integration and support around the solutions offered by Skybox, thereby creating a truly differentiated offering."
Focusing on the markets of UAE and Saudi Arabia, Help AG and Skybox Security aim to engage organisations active within the government, oil & gas, utilities and finance sectors. The firms have also shared that end-users will have the choice of either utilising security management solutions as a part of Help AG's MSS offering, or instead opting to have the reseller integrate the Suite into their IT infrastructure.
Jono Clarke Storey, Channel Director at Skybox, commented: "Our channel strategy has been key to helping us set a pace for record growth this year.
"Partners like Help AG provide Skybox with efficient routes to market while complementing our sales teams as we increase our footprint, particularly in the Middle East. In turn, we enrich their offerings with a comprehensive security management platform that provides more solutions and greater visibility of the attack surface than any individual point product can."
