With the agreement, BeyondTrust is expanding its distribution footprint globally. The move underscores escalating demand for security solutions that guard against insider threats and data breaches for businesses of all sizes.
End-user demand for better security visibility, control and protection have reached new heights, in part because the number of data breaches so far in 2016 has increased nearly 20 percent compared to last year, according to the Identity Theft Resource Center.
BeyondTrust joins the Westcon-Comstor Accelerate program in order to develop a global channel program capable of recruiting and enabling new solution provider partners around the world. This expanded partnership will provide significant scale and reach into new, untapped markets for BeyondTrust.
With up to 80 percent of security breaches involving privileged credentials, controlling and monitoring privileged access is critical in the fight against insider threats and data breaches. BeyondTrust’s partnership with Westcon-Comstor advances the BeyondTrust commitment to preventing privilege misuse and stopping unauthorized access. Westcon-Comstor has the expertise to help BeyondTrust bring privileged access management to a broader market, quickly and effectively.
Through the partnership, BeyondTrust’s network of channel partners, systems integrators and solution providers also gain access to the support and go-to-market strategies available through Westcon-Comstor.
“With Westcon-Comstor working with more than 17,000 trading partners in the security industry worldwide, our partnership will provide acceleration for BeyondTrust in a scale that we may not have been able to achieve on our own,” said Maurice Heiblum, chief operation officer, BeyondTrust. “We are thrilled to make our best-in-class privileged access management offering through this premier global IT and security distributor, giving our channel partners, systems integrators and solution providers access to a first-class model available only through Westcon-Comstor.”
