SecurityFirst, the “data-centric” cybersecurity provider, added three new technology partners to its channel partner program.
The California-based company announced Thursday that CMA, Sengex and First Nation Corp. have joined the program to resell DataKeep, SecurityFirst’s security software solution. SecurityFirst launched the program in November, billing it as an opportunity for channel partners and managed security services providers (MSSPs) to help companies satisfy increasingly complex compliance standards surrounding data protection.
“Widely publicized mega breaches and cyberattacks have increased the urgency to improve data security among companies of all sizes, offering huge growth opportunities for partners looking to expand their security practice portfolios, especially as major regulations, like GDPR, loom,” SecurityFirst CEO Jim Varner said. “We are delivering data protection solutions that are easy to implement and optimize for any customer environment or business requirement, enabling a clear and robust path to new opportunities and revenue.”
The partner program targets companies that already have a security practice and want to add data privacy to their portfolio. The program has enablement, marketing resources and discounts for channel pricing.
Sengex is a Virginia-based threat detection and mitigation provider that was founded in 2008. First Nation is a Native American-owned company that focuses on IT consulting, and professional and managed security services. CMA is a VAR and systems integrator that has worked with government customers for 26 years.
“As a SecurityFirst Platinum partner, we have a unique advantage to bring DataKeep to every federal agency. By leveraging our government-wide acquisition contract vehicles, we are well positioned to serve literally every DoD and civilian organization,” said John Frey, CMA’s director of channel and alliances. “SecurityFirst’s DataKeep solution is integral to CMA’s overall cybersecurity Risk Management Framework solution portfolio with its best-in-class data-centric protection capabilities. DataKeep’s ability to safeguard federal organizations’ data across on-premises, cloud or hybrid environments positions it ideally for most every solution strategy and architecture.”
