Sektor bolsters cybersecurity portfolio with Skyhigh partnership
Wed, 6th Sep 2023

Sektor has announced the signing of a strategic partnership with Skyhigh Security. The partnership represents a significant milestone in the distribution business's expansion into the cybersecurity market in Australia, following the launch of its newly formed cybersecurity division in late 2022.

The partnership with Skyhigh Security will allow Sektor Australia to offer its network of channel partners access to the Skyhigh Security Service Edge (SSE) portfolio. 

Industry research and advisory company Gartner named Skyhigh Security as a visionary in its 2023 Magic Quadrant for SSE, which evaluates vendors based on their ability to execute and completeness of vision and was included in the Gartner Critical Capabilities for SSE, an adjunct report to the Gartner Magic Quadrant for SSE. 

Furthermore, partners will have access to Skyhigh Security's newly unveiled Altitude Partner Program, which offers double-digit backend rebates to advanced-tier partners, a catalogue of training modules available to partners free-of-charge, and a commitment that 100 per cent of their business will transact through the channel. 

“We knew Skyhigh Security had industry-leading technology, however learning more about the competitive differentiators that gave Skyhigh Security a cutting edge in the enterprise SSE space such as their hybrid architecture, and unified data protection capabilities, made the decision to pursue this partnership simple for us,” says David Long, general manager of cyber for Australia and New Zealand at Sektor. 

“Moreover, what really became clear throughout the RFI process was that Skyhigh Security is genuinely committed to working with and growing the channel in Australia. Bringing Skyhigh Security into the Sektor Cyber offering is going to enable our partners to differentiate in a very tight market, bringing value, diversity and importantly, profitability, back into the channel.”

“We specialise in delivering innovative and efficient technologies for the retail, networking, security, healthcare, modern workplace, mobility, cybersecurity, and payments markets. Our passionate, dedicated, and deeply knowledgeable team is second to none, offering unparalleled industry and technology expertise to help our partners build winning solutions for their customers.”

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Sektor in Australia. Our mission at Skyhigh Security is simple; to protect our customers data, regardless of where it’s located, in a rapidly shifting hybrid work environment. Our partners are paramount to our success, and we have a fantastic opportunity with the support of Sektor, to provide an array of value-added services and support to our local channel community,” adds Joel Milburn, Channel and Distribution Manager for ANZ, Skyhigh Security.

“We are focused on helping customers secure the world's data. Their platform protects organisations with cloud-native security solutions that are both data-aware and simple to use. Their market-leading Security Service Edge (SSE) Portfolio goes beyond data access and focuses on data use, allowing organisations to collaborate from any device and from anywhere without sacrificing security."
