Copenhagen, Denmark - Aug 24, 2015 - Since the launch of its Partner Program in 2013, Secunia, a leading provider of IT security solutions for vulnerability management, has been building a robust channel. Throughout 2015 a number of Value Added Resellers (VARs) specializing in providing security solutions for UK organizations have been signed in the UK and Ireland. VARs are an integral part of the Secunia eco system and the company has formed new partnerships with several leading security specialists in 2015. Through partnership with these companies, Secunia continues to extend its footprint into the UK and Ireland market. Secunia is committed to the channel, and anticipates recruiting more value added resellers and continuing to develop mutually beneficial relationships with channel partners.
Overview of Secunia’s 2015 VAR partnerships in the UK and Ireland:
Blue Cube Security
Blue Cube Security provides best-of-breed IT security solutions in all the key areas of Enterprise IT security. After conducting a review of their solution portfolio, Blue Cube Security identified a gap in their portfolio for a strong patch management solution. Secunia was selected for its breadth of coverage of platforms and applications, also for its excellent credentials as a solution of choice for many leading application vendors. The agreement with Blue Cube covers security patching products from the Secunia portfolio.
Rob Swainson, Sales Director at Blue Cube Security, commented; "At Blue Cube, we believe that creating a strong security posture starts with building a solid foundation. Patch management is a fundamental element of good cyber hygiene. By automating this vital but often overlooked area of security, Blue Cube can assist customers in identifying and prioritising critical system vulnerabilities which are often exploited as the first point of penetration into an organization."
