San Mateo, California-based TrapX Security has unveiled a new partner program designed to accelerate worldwide availability of its products.
TrapX offers three ways to partner. As a managed security service provider (MSSP), a partner can offer TrapX HoneyGrid capabilities under a monthly subscription model. As a VAR, it can resell TrapX Adaptive Defense technologies. A company can also act as a strategic technology partner, integrating TrapX technologies with complementary products or services.
"Our partners have the instant reach and scalability to bring our disruptive security capabilities to market and support our mutual customers," said Mark Cashman, vice president of channel sales at TrapX. "Our go-to-market strategy is built around the channel and we know our partners are best able to support our mutual customers."
TrapX says the new program will help meet enterprises’ growing demand for protection against zero-day malware and APTs. CSOs are scrambling to enhance their defense capabilities with security technologies because recent cybersecurity attacks on Target, Michaels, eBay and others, have revealed that cybercriminals – whether individuals, crime syndicates, or nation-state actors – can readily bypass the perimeter security solutions on the market today.
