US endpoint security vendor Ziften enters Australian market with Insentra partnership
US end-point security vendor Ziften has announced its entry into the Australia market in partnership with Sydney-headquartered IT professional and managed services provider Insentra.
The vendor’s main software product provides real-time visibility for threat detection and mitigation for enterprise customer devices, servers and virtual machines.
The ANZ business will be led by former Dropbox country manager Greg Kieser, who joined Ziften last month.
“As cyber security threats continue to hit all sectors of business, this is the right time for me to join Ziften and expand the opportunity for success in ANZ,” Kieser said.
“I’m looking forward to quickly building Ziften’s share in the ANZ market, and to work closely with Insentra and Microsoft to do so.”
Ziften previously announced a partnership with Microsoft to integrate its Zenith systems and security operations platform with Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP). The company also announced a new global program launching in Australia that will onboard Microsoft Windows Defender ATP partners into Ziften’s channel partner program.
Ziften said the integrated solution provided customers with a “single pane of glass” for detecting, viewing, investigating and responding to cyberattacks on Windows, macOS and Linux endpoints, which includes physical, virtual and cloud environments.
As part of its global partnership, Insentra will assist with distribution and regional customer training and support.
“As a global Microsoft partner, teaming with Ziften to offer their Zenith security platform integrated with Microsoft Windows Defender ATP was a no-brainer,” Insentra chief executive Ronnie Altit said.
“We’re thrilled at the seamless integration between Zenith and Windows Defender ATP giving our partners and their customers holistic protection and visibility across their Windows and non-Windows systems. Ziften has been a pleasure to work with, and supportive at every step of the process.
“We expect to be extremely successful offering this powerful security solution to our partners and providing the local Australia and New Zealand [market] pre-sales, deployment and support for the Ziften security solution.”
