30 Nov 17

Aura Information Security (Aura InfoSec) has announced that local Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) Seccom Global has signed on as their first channel partner in Australia for its RedShield web-application shielding service.   

Under the agreement, Seccom will offer RedShield services to new and existing customers.

Aura InfoSec says the deal will allow Seccom to expand its suite of solutions to include a dedicated enterprise-grade web-application shielding service.

Michael Warnock, Aura InfoSec country manager says the partnership will be instrumental in helping to bring RedShield’s web-application security solution to a wider range of Australian businesses.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Seccom Global. They are a well-respected player in the security space and this new relationship will bring mutual value for both current and future customers,” Warnock says.

“At the same time, Seccom Global’s current line-up of security solutions is a great complementary fit for RedShield.”

According to Aura InfoSec, their RedShield solution combines web-application shielding software with industry-leading cyber security services, enabling organisations to protect their critical web applications while fixing known vulnerabilities as time and resources allow.  

The solution blocks known flaws by leveraging a global library of almost 7,000 shields, which is managed and optimised by a team of global security experts.    

Anita Sheridan-Roddick, Seccom sales and marketing director says the decision to add RedShield’s service to its product portfolio was a simple one.  

“With a history of innovation and leading-edge support services, RedShield is a natural progression for us. This product is like nothing else on the market, it provides an intelligent, and almost immediate solution to malicious behaviours,” Roddick says.  

“As we grow it’s important that we not only continue to provide our clients with best of breed solutions but also that we continue to adapt our business to meet our clients’ changing requirements. We see RedShield as a key partner in both our growth and our solutions.”

Warnock adds,  “As customers demand cybersecurity service availability from their trusted providers, Seccom Global has successfully risen to the occasion (by) offering uniquely positioned solutions to drive the scalable and comprehensive protection that customers require for digital transformation.”

“Together, there is an opportunity for us to develop strong synergies between our businesses.”
