Westcon has signed a pan-European distribution agreement with Menlo Security – the world’s first and only Cloud Secure Web Gateway with an Isolation CoreTM.
Following the recent announcement of its new Next Generation Solutions (NGS) go-to-market initiative, Westcon aims to unlock recurring revenues in a cloud-first world. This agreement with Menlo Security allows Westcon to strengthen its best-of-breed portfolio of vendors, by offering partners access to the industry’s leading cloud security architecture, based on a patented Isolation CoreTM.
Menlo Security provides a cloud-based isolation platform that protects organisations from cyber-attacks by eliminating the threat of malware from websites, documents and emails. Through its isolation architecture users are offered the unique ability to block 100 per cent of all malware - including exploits, ransomware and zero-day attacks. Menlo Security’s innovative technology separates users and networks from the public internet through secure, low-latency connections to the web and SaaS applications.
Daniel Hurel, Vice President of Westcon EMEA, Cyber Security & Next-Gen Solutions (NGS), Westcon said, “onboarding Menlo Security’s solutions add another string to our bow when it comes to offering our customers the best security platforms available on the market. With our ever-evolving vendor portfolio, we’re pleased to be able to help our partners across Europe strengthen their security offerings.
“With its unique isolation core that secures access to data and applications, Menlo Security’s platform is a real industry first. Being built in the cloud, specifically for the cloud, it strengthens our Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) offering - an area that we continue to develop in-line with remote worker requirements and cloud transformation. We are really pleased to have Menlo Security as part of our NGS portfolio and are looking forward to helping grow its position within the European market.”
John Brown, Director of EMEA Channels at Menlo Security added, “ We feel it’s so important to have a close, proactive and mutually beneficial relationship with a wide variety of partners. This new agreement with Westcon will be a great opportunity for us to develop our channel community and to continue expanding the businesses across Europe. Westcon’s NGS division combines the depth and breadth of reach you get from an extremely well-established global player with the agility and focus of a cutting-edge cloud-first distributor; with their detailed understanding of cybersecurity we are absolutely confident that the partnership with Westcon will be instrumental in achieving our growth targets in Europe.”
