Menlo Security says its new technology partner program aims to help customers easily integrate its isolation platform with their existing infrastructure.
The first group of pre-integrated partners includes Okta, Centrify, Ping Identity and OneLogin. With these validated integrations, customers can accelerate rolling out the platform, and streamline user administration across multiple device types, according to the company.
This is Menlo Security’s first technology partner program. In August, the company announced a partnership with Webroot to bring threat intelligence to its platform.
Poornima DeBolle, Menlo Security’s co-founder and chief product officer, tells Channel Partners her company plans to expand its partner program over the next year to include multiple technology categories.
“Enterprises are searching for scalable and reliable security technology to protect employees from data breaches, but oftentimes they need the new technology to easily integrate with existing infrastructure,” she said. “With this new partner program, Menlo Security will collaborate with widely deployed enterprise products in multiple technology categories to validate successful interoperability and simplify the isolation deployments in sophisticated enterprise environments.”
Menlo Security protects organizations from cyberattacks by eliminating the threat of malware from Web and email. Its platform isolates all Web content in the cloud, enabling users to safely interact with websites, links and documents online.
Partners will benefit from the relationship by “proving an improved customer experience,” DeBolle said. It allows them to offer “tested and validated solutions to their end users,” she said.
“Our enterprise customers have sophisticated security needs that require multi-vendor solutions,” said Ben Rice, Centrify’s vice president of business development. “Our partnership with Menlo Security allows us to ensure that enterprise identities are secure against cyber threats that target today’s hybrid IT environment of cloud, mobile and on-premises. With our solution-centric business focus, Menlo Security was a natural fit for us as its isolation platform protects users from malware attacks on any browser and any device.”
