ThreatQuotient, a security operations platform innovator, have unveiled a strategic partnership and VAD agreement with StarLink. According to the terms of the agreement, StarLink will promote and distribute ThreatQuotient’s platform, ThreatQ, through its extensive network of channel partners and solution providers across the Middle East, Turkey and Africa, served by its offices in Bahrain, Egypt, Kenya, Kuwait, Morocco, Nigeria, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.
The ability for organisations to continuously ensure the security of their data and support the business needs of their customers is becoming a more critical factor of success; and the success of cybersecurity strategies within an organization is leaning more and more on threat intelligence to relieve the workload that security teams are facing, and support organisations in making the right choices for solutions to map and monitor their risks in real time. ThreatQ’s security operations solutions will help enterprises stay ahead of threats and will help StarLink’s customers handle incidents more efficiently, and to determine with more precision the measures they need to take to reduce risk and protect their environment.
“Like many regions, there is a growing need in Middle East, Turkey and Africa for strengthened security operations and improved threat intelligence management which is why ThreatQuotient is excited to expand our footprint into these markets with the support of StarLink”, said Anthony Perridge, VP of International at ThreatQuotient. “We are confident in StarLink’s long term competencies in cybersecurity through their extensive portfolio of security solutions, a solid channel network, and years of expertise and market knowledge. We look forward to joining StarLink’s impressive portfolio of technology solutions, and maintaining innovative, competitive programs that drive efficiency for our mutual customers and offer the highest quality threat intelligence tools available.”
Large and small threat intelligence teams benefit by using ThreatQ to apply customer-defined scoring of intelligence, quickly deploy threat data to existing sensor grids, and cornerstone workflows to focus on time to detect (TTD) and time to respond (TTR). ThreatQ also enables a shared understanding across teams and tools within an organisation’s defence infrastructure. The platform serves reactive use cases (responding to events) as well as proactive use cases (anticipating threats, orchestrating and synchronising threat intelligence across systems), and supports future use cases by adapting to changing business needs. Leveraging an integrated self-tuning Threat Library, Adaptive Workbench and Open Exchange, ThreatQ has become the foundation of security operations and threat management systems across the globe.
Nidal Othman, co-founder and managing director of StarLink, commented: “even after deploying multiple layers of security, organisations are continuing to fall victim to intrusions. This is mainly due to having the traditional methods of security systems. What is lacking is an advanced security strategy. This is where ThreatQ’s Threat Intelligence Platform can help enterprises accelerate their security operations with a threat-centric approach. We are looking forward to add value to this partnership through our regional expertise and capabilities and grow ThreatQ’s market share in this region.”
ThreatQ enables teams to make a significant leap forward in their current capabilities to manage intelligence by automating several historically manual, time-consuming and repeatable tasks, saving customers a significant amount of time and further augmenting their ROI.
