RESTON, Va., Feb. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- IKANOW, the leader in open-source information security analytics, today announced the launch of a new channel partner program for resellers, integrators, service providers and their end customers.
The program, named the IKANOW Preferred Partner Program, was created to meet the rapidly increasing demand for IKANOW's Information Security Analytics (ISA) solution among mid- to large-size enterprise customers. Partners will receive technical guidance, sales and marketing support, and financial incentives to enable them to deploy and manage IKANOW ISA for their clients.
"Security professionals at all levels field such large amounts of data that it is nearly impossible to review it efficiently or thoroughly enough to identify breaches in real time," said Kevin Wetzel, chief executive officer of Jigsaw Security Enterprises, an IKANOW Partner. "IKANOW's open source architecture integrates easily with our own systems, allowing us to quickly identify threats and take proactive steps to protect clients from attack. Furthermore, IKANOW's Preferred Partner Program has rewarded my investment with healthy revenues and the opportunity to deliver a more effective cybersecurity solution to customers."
Corporate information security teams are overwhelmed by the deluge of data from an expanding number of security systems. In addition, hackers increasingly know how to avoid individual vendor detection approaches making visibility across systems a critical tool to identify intrusions. IKANOW's ISA solution reduces the time to breach detection by aggregating data across all data sources and rapidly identifying anomalies. In addition, its risk-based vulnerability prioritization capability keeps information security teams and managed security service providers focused on the most critical items. For partner organizations, this creates opportunities to bolster their solution sets and create new revenue streams.
"Our partners are tremendously valuable to us," said Jason Pender, senior vice president, field operations, IKANOW. "The IKANOW Preferred Partner Program will reward our partners for their deep security expertise with compelling margins and training, marketing tools and resources to best take advantage of the IKANOW ISA solution."
The program is currently now available in North America and will expand to partners around the world over the next several months. For more information on the IKANOW Partner Program, please visit http://www.ikanow.com/partners.
