Security VAD StarLink, an Infinigate Group Company, has expanded its Risk and Compliance portfolio with the onboarding of Rapid7, a leader in cloud risk and threat detection. This partnership will cater to the Middle East distribution of the Rapid7 portfolio through Starlink offices in Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
Today’s threat landscape is boundaryless and the attack techniques are novel, which can come as a nasty surprise. With enterprises transitioning to the cloud, cloud-focused threats are on the rise and the need to detect risks and respond in real-time is becoming a high priority across various industries. With a very strong combination of cloud risk management and threat detection capabilities, Rapid7 empowers enterprises to secure their businesses by reducing the attack surface and eliminating threats with zero compromise.
Ahmed Diab, COO of StarLink, commented: “the SecOps teams are weighed down by the enormous load and velocity of threats and are under tremendous pressure to ensure their organization’s data and assets are secure. The two comprehensive offers by Rapid7 – Threat Complete and Cloud Risk Complete – empower the teams to contain advanced threats and deliver world class cloud security. Rapid7 strengthens our Risk and Compliance portfolio and jointly we look forward to providing an innovative experience to enterprises and keeping their businesses secure and protected.”
“We are delighted to have forged this strategic partnership with StarLink, which reaffirms our commitment to helping our customers and channel partners across the Middle East”, said David Howorth, Vice President EMEA Sales, Rapid7. “With the adoption of cloud technologies increasing rapidly across the region, we believe that StarLink shares our vision to simplify the complex by providing a relevant platform of security solutions to support their extensive partner network.”
As a value-added distributor, StarLink will support the partnership with technical, marketing and on-ground expertise as well as open up StarLink’s extensive channel network to generate new business opportunities for Rapid7 in the region and to meet with the roadmap that has been jointly put in place for 2023.
