SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Skybox Security, the leader in automated security risk and compliance management, today announced it has signed its first distributor relationship agreement, with Securematics, Inc. of Santa Clara, California. The announcement underscores the Company's focus on expanding its network of security solution partners in the US and around the world.

The agreement gives Securematics' base of value-added resellers immediate access to the full suite of Skybox security risk management solutions.  Securematics has over 1,500 network and security VARs serving end-users in SMBs and enterprises across North America.  Securematics is also a certified Minority owned business with a strong presence in the Federal Government and Service Provider markets.

"Skybox has been very successful in building VAR relationships to help us better serve the market," explained Gidi Cohen, CEO of Skybox.
