Westcon-Comstor has announced the signing of a new EMEA distribution agreement with enterprise API security company Noname Security. This strategic relationship will further strengthen the Westcon Next Generation Solutions (NGS) offering in the cloud and DevOps security pillar.
The Noname API Security Platform allows businesses to mitigate all Application Program Interface (API) security risks by discovering all APIs, data, and metadata, analysing API behaviour, remediating API vulnerabilities, and detecting and preventing API threats. With the ability to connect to any cloud or on-premise environment and the flexibility and choice in where you'd like the Noname API Security Platform to reside, businesses can guarantee a frictionless operation combined with an out-of-band integration and quick time to value.
Daniel Hurel, Vice President of Westcon EMEA said, "Noname Security, recognised as a technology disrupter and cyber security innovator is a crucial addition to our Westcon NGS vendor portfolio. This vendor will help our partners significantly reduce the API attack surface of their customers. Its proven value in protecting some of the largest businesses by discovering and securing exposed and unprotected APIs makes Noname Security a natural partner for us, and we're excited about bringing the platform to market in Europe."
Dirk Marichal, Vice President EMEA at Noname Security, added, "APIs have found their way into most elements of a business' technology stack for a reason, and that is that they're effective. Unfortunately, they aren't as secure as traditional applications and bad actors are taking notice. Our platform helps to mitigate these risks and keep business APIs secure and out of the headlines. Westcon-Comstor is the ideal partner for us to reach new customers, its wide regional reach, value-added services and marketing support are second to none."
Westcon NGS encompasses four solutions pillars: zero trust access, IoT/OT security, next-generation SOC and secure cloud/DevOps. Focusing on solutions rather than specific vendor technologies, the company helps partners identify the solutions best suited to them, their customers, and their long-term strategies, from its comprehensive portfolio.
