New distributors for Authlogics, HID, HPE and Nexthink
2017-03-13

MEA: authentication vendor Authlogics has appointed network and security VAD EliteVAD and broadliner AxizWorkgroup to grow the customer base for its multi-factor authentication platform across Middle East and Africa (thanks to EliteVAD offices in Dubai, Egypt and Kuwait and AxizWorkgroup teams in Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and Zambia), focusing on the enterprise market and specifically the financial services sector. Authlogics recently launched its Authlogics for Retail Banking. The platform enables banks to replace hard-tokens and passwords with highly secure, convenient and consistent 1.5 Factor Authentication or 1.5FA, 2FA and 3FA logon methods. Authlogics for Retail Banking can be deployed for customers accessing online, mobile and telephone banking services, as well as providing additional layers of security for ATM and Point of Sale devices.

Network and security VAD SCOPE Middle East has become a member of the HID Advantage Partner Programme. According to SCOPE, the HID Advantage Partner Programme is a loyalty-based initiative which provides partners with the ability to evolve their relationship with the vendor for scalability and overall growth. Under the programme, SCOPE will distribute the full range of IAM Solutions, including HID Global's ActivID Authentication solutions and ActivID Credential Management System. In addition, SCOPE will work closely with HID Global to enhance end user value in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

Sparepart specialist Service Parts Logistics (SPL) has long been the authorised channel for Hewlett Packard Enterprise, enabling it to supply genuine original HPE parts and upgrades to its customers. This year SPL has added genuine HPE networking and storage equipment to their customer offering via the HPE authorised spares channel. In terms of the range of networking and storage equipment made available by HPE, SPL stocks the full current portfolio, as well as versions of previous generations of hardware at much reduced pricing – from HPE Flexfabric and modular switching, to fixed port switching, routing, security and wireless access points and controllers. Similarly, with regards storage, SPL is ideally positioned to offer a "shopping cart" solution where every item from hard drives to chassis is available as an equivalent spare through its HPE channel.

Finally, security VAD StarLink has signed a distribution agreement with Nexthink, a leader in end-user experience management. StarLink will sell, install and support Nexthink end-user IT analytics solutions through its extensive network of channel partners to enterprise and government customers in the region, through its offices in Bahrain, Egypt, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates. By combining real-time endpoint analytics and end-user feedback Nexthink helps IT improve business impact. Nexthink’s unique analytics and visualizations provide new insight and enable IT to adopt proactive operations, reduce costs and ultimately enhance end-user business productivity. Nidal Othman, Managing Director of StarLink, said: "we are happy to be appointed a Nexthink distributor for the META region especially since Nexthink complements our Solutions Lifecycle Portfolio. Offering unique end-user experience management solutions to enable companies to improve their IT services, enhance their security and ensure compliance, Nexthink shows great potential in the market." Ghassan Al Kahlout, Regional Director Saudi Arabia and Turkey at Nexthink, said: "Nexthink aims to establish a strong foothold in META regions and StarLink can make this possible with its expertise and rich experience in enabling technology companies reach full market potential. Teaming with StarLink moves us even closer to delivering on the promise of end-user experience management for organizations of all sizes."

The terms of the distributor agreement will see StarLink and Tripwire uniting to leverage their strengths in security products and services, to help organisations in Africa. StarLink's office in South Africa will offer Tripwire's entire product portfolio through its extensive network of channel partners.

It has evolved its products to meet the challenges posed by today's threat environment. As a leading provider of security, compliance and IT operations solutions for enterprises, service providers and government organisations, Tripwire's solutions are based on high-fidelity asset visibility and deep endpoint intelligence combined with business context: together these solutions integrate and automate security and IT operations.

"We are excited to expand our relationship with StarLink to Africa", said Neil Harvey, Vice President of EMEA for Tripwire. "In this ever-changing threat environment, it is important for organisations to strengthen the foundation of their security programs. Tripwire looks for strategic partners such as StarLink to help our customers protect their environments, maintain system availability and comply with regulatory mandates."

"The security threat environment is becoming increasingly complex and organisations are being held to even more rigorous compliance standards. We believe that organisations must protect their IT assets and corporate data, while simultaneously reducing the cost of compliance", said Nidal Othman, Managing Director at StarLink. "Tripwire uniquely addresses these challenges and provides CISOs with a metrics platform that can showcase their company's security performance in the same way their CFO's describe the company's financial performance."

The top 5 IT Security trends are namely, Behavioral Analytics, Internet of Things, Cloud, Mobile and Incident Response. "In an attempt to keep up with new and increasing threats to enterprise and government entities, traditional approaches to IT security have limited impact. Even though companies are dedicating more resources to IT security and risk, attacks and vulnerabilities are increasing in frequency and sophistication", said Avinash Advani, VP Business Strategy at StarLink. He added: "So the solution to the problem is to evaluate and invest in next-generation IT security technologies, to keep up with the pace of innovation, and simultaneously with the evolution of cyber-threats."
