Ziften moves into A/NZ with new partnership and appointment

22 Mar 2018

Ziften has announced its entry into the A/NZ cybersecurity market with the appointment of Greg Kieser as Ziften country manager A/NZ, and partnership with global services partner Insentra to assist with distribution and regional customer training and support.

Ziften is a provider of all-the-time visibility and control for client devices, servers, and cloud VMs.

"As cybersecurity threats continue to hit all sectors of business, this is the right time for me to join Ziften and expand the opportunity for success in A/NZ," says Kieser.

"I’m looking forward to quickly building Ziften’s share in the A/NZ market, and to working closely with Insentra and Microsoft to do so."

Ziften is also announcing the launch of its Fast Start programme for onboarding Microsoft Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) channel partners globally.

This follows Ziften’s previously announced strategic business and technology collaboration with Microsoft, and integration of its Zenith systems and security operations platform with Windows Defender ATP.

The Ziften Fast Start programme expedites the acceptance and on-boarding of existing Windows Defender ATP partners into the Ziften channel partner programme.

The integrated solution provides joint customers with a cloud-based, single-pane-of-glass to detect, view, investigate, and respond to advanced cyber-attacks and breaches on Windows, macOS, and Linux endpoints – including physical, virtual, and cloud-based systems.

“Ziften is 100% focused on delivering customer value through channel partners”, said Ziften worldwide channels SVP Greg McCreight.

“With our Fast Start programme, we are providing hands-on partnership to existing Microsoft channel partners, rapidly enabling them to solve customer’s post-breach security challenges across their entire systems environments with Ziften and Microsoft.”

Insentra CEO Ronnie Altit adds, “As a global Microsoft partner, teaming with Ziften to offer their Zenith security platform integrated with Microsoft Windows Defender ATP was a no-brainer.

“We’re thrilled at the seamless integration between Zenith and Windows Defender ATP giving our partners and their customers holistic protection and visibility across their Windows and non-Windows systems. Ziften has been a pleasure to work with, and supportive at every step of the process. We expect to be extremely successful offering this powerful security solution to our partners and providing the local Australia and New Zealand pre-sales, deployment and support for the Ziften security solution.”

The Ziften Fast Start programme provides existing Windows Defender ATP channel partners and service providers with rich benefits, including:

Expedited Acceptance and On-Boarding - Ziften and Insentra channel managers and field sales work directly with qualified partners to get them up and running offering the Ziften Zenith endpoint security solution integrated with Windows Defender ATP.

Superior Security Value - Channel partners are uniquely positioned to offer their customers greater security value across more of their overall environment than ever, increasing the number of supported and secured Windows, macOS, and Linux systems.

Hands-On Partnership - Once signed on, Ziften and Insentra field sales, sales engineers, and marketing teams support daily pre-sales engagements, drive new sales opportunities, and help to close more deals with Microsoft and Ziften endpoint security.
