Progress Distribution Announces Partnership with Lastline
Offering leading Advanced Threat Protection software to their extensive reseller network
31 July 2017, London. Security distributor and sales accelerator, Progress Distribution, has added Lastline to its portfolio of advanced and innovative cyber security technologies. This distribution and sales acceleration agreement enables Lastline to extend its global reach into the UK Enterprise market.
Lastline’s technology offers network security against advanced malware and persistent threats by complementing Secure Web Gateways (SWG’s), endpoint protection, and other perimeter defences that protect against Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs). APTs have continued to increase in numbers and are more common and dangerous than ever. Understanding how these threats have grown in complexity and sophistication and being able to detect them with necessary context and minimal false positives, is critical for those tasked with keeping their networks safe.
John Quinn, CEO, Progress said “The cyber security market is recognised as being one of the fastest growing sectors globally and this is the start of a significant partnership as we focus on building new revenue opportunities through our reseller channel.
We are inundated with new cyber security technology companies coming to the UK and European markets utilising the unique Progress sales acceleration engine and large VAR sales base. Being headquartered in central London with further offices in Germany, Ireland and Sweden covering 12 separate countries, vendors are seeing massive growth in these territories and we have to choose our technologies carefully. After extensive vetting, we choseLastline for its proven capabilities and market leading technology”
He went on to say “We’re excited about taking Lastline’s technology to our partners as spotting malware as fast as possible and keeping tabs on what it’s trying to do is key to a cyber defence strategy. As always, we’ll support Lastline and our partners by accelerating their go-to-market by offering them our extensive range of business development services including, sales, marketing and monthly PAYG finance solutions.
