Relatively new Melbourne reseller signs deal with CrowdStrike​

29 Mar 2017

Endpoint Focus, a device management and end-user computing specialist, today announced a deal with CrowdStrike.

The Melbourne-based reseller has joined CrowdStrike’s Elevate Partner Program, which will enable it to extend access to the company’s endpoint protection platform, threat intelligence and response services for organisations across the Australian region.

The CrowdStrike Falcon Platform unifies antivirus, endpoint detection and response (EDR) and a 24/7 managed threat hunting, all via a single lightweight agent.

Vice president of technology strategy at CrowdStrike, Michael Sentonas says by leveraging their innovative technology, customers can gain unmatched protection from malware, exploits, malware-free intrusion and other advanced threats, while realising all the scalability and efficacy benefits that only a fully cloud-based platform can deliver.

“We are pleased to have Endpoint Focus join our growing partner program, given the exponential customer demand we are seeing across APAC for our Falcon platform,” says Sentonas.

“Endpoint Focus is already a trusted authority in the endpoint protection market and we are enthusiastic about joining forces to bring cutting-edge technologies and services to organisations across the region.”

According to Sentonas, the CrowdStrike Elevate Partner Program equips tech partners, solution providers, system integrators and MSPs with the capability to deliver exceptional breach prevention to customers.

Perks include a broad set of sophisticated but easy-to-use APIs to enable customers to seamlessly integrate the Falcon platform with existing security solutions.

“As a relatively new business, we are perfectly positioned to bring next-generation technologies to our customers. The team wholeheartedly stands behind CrowdStrike’s revolutionary endpoint security platform that enables advanced prevention, detection and response to all types of threats,” says David Stagg, partner and consultant at Endpoint Focus.

“Australian organisations are ready for next-generation security solutions and we are confident that with CrowdStrike on our roster, we’re able to deliver industry-leading, end-to-end protection to local enterprises.”
