LightCyber Introduces Channel Alliance Program
New Program Enables Channel Proficiency, Profitability and Productivity for Solving Targeted Data Breach Problem
LOS ALTOS, Calif. and RAMAT GAN, Israel – August 18, 2015 – LightCyber, a leading provider of Active Breach Detection solutions, today announced its new security channel partner program with the creation of the LightCyber Channel Alliance Program™, which offers in-depth training, tools and certification. Detecting targeted data breaches has become a top priority for companies and organizations, therefore creating a significant opportunity for value added resellers to help customers evaluate, procure and implement Active Breach Detection solutions. LightCyber is committed to a 100% channel distribution model and to work collaboratively to ensure proficiency, profitability and productivity for its partners.
“Without Active Breach Detection, most companies lack an ability to accurately and efficiently detect an active breach once an intruder has circumvented legacy threat prevention systems and compromised a user account or networked host,” said Jason Matlof, executive vice president, LightCyber. “The new LightCyber Channel Alliance Program can exponentially grow the reach of our Active Breach Detection solutions through a well equipped and empowered channel that can fast-forward the ability to solve the data breach crisis for more organizations.”
The new partner program includes:
- Online Training for sales and technical sales engineers with competency tests and certification
- Online Lab for simulating a targeted attack and interpreting breach indicators
- Online Partner Portal, including digital co-branded collateral, presentations, promotional items, event materials, co-hosted events and webinars and reference customer PR and materials
- Co-Selling and Evaluation Support, both onsite and remote, including availability of evaluation appliances
LightCyber has been supporting security channel partners since it began selling its Magna platform nearly two years ago. Now with a new channel program, LightCyber can expand the number of channel partners it can effectively support and ensure quality and success.
Comments From Channel Partners
“LightCyber addresses a critical need for all companies and organizations to quickly find and stop targeted data breaches,” said Stephen Harrison, president, EverSec Group. “The unique solution fits well with other security infrastructure and is an essential addition for any serious security partner.”
“If your company is relying on legacy security solutions, you are likely already breached or will be the victim of one soon without knowing it,” said Jim Broome, president of DirectDefense and security assessment expert. “LightCyber is an important and natural extension of our business to give companies the visibility to detect a targeted data breach quickly and accurately.”
“Fast and accurate detection of intruders already inside the network is an absolute necessity in today’s cybersecurity threat landscape,” said Dominic Genzano, chief executive officer, STIGroup, Ltd. “LightCyber squarely addresses this need, strongly complementing our managed security and incident response offerings.”
“With the vast need to enable our customers to quickly detect an active breach, we are building focus and expertise around LightCyber,“ said Mark Bordelon, president, Secure Data Solutions. “The formalized Premier Partner program increases the support and cooperation that drives our business.”
“Perhaps one the largest opportunities in security is true breach detection that curtails the threat and damage of a data breach,” said Mark Miller, Partner, M&S Technologies. “Partnering with LightCyber fills a void for us and enables us to cater to a huge need and opportunity.”
The Premier Partner program begins immediately. For more details, please see the partner section of the LightCyber website: http://lightcyber.com/partners/channel-partners/
