Distology reveals company has received investment from private equity firm NorthEdge to help drive aggressive growth plans.
LogRhythm, the company powering today’s security operations centres (SOCs), has selected Distology, a niche value-added distributor (VAD) specialising in IT security in the EMEA region, as its VAD for the UK and Ireland. Distology adds LogRhythm’s NextGen Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) to its suite of IT security solutions and offers its partners new opportunities to monetise SOC solutions.
The exclusive distribution deal enables more reseller partners in the UK and Ireland to offer cybersecurity solutions with a Software as a Service (SaaS) based model that makes IT security efficient and scalable. Organisations that deploy LogRhythm’s SIEM platform can rapidly detect, respond and neutralise cyber threats by aligning technologies, teams and processes. Users gain efficient and secure data access, streamlined workflows, a unified user experience, as well as the ability to customise how they manage their IT environments.
“We’re excited to be working with Distology as our exclusive distribution partner in the UK and Ireland. Together, we are serving growing demand for SaaS-based cybersecurity solutions and enabling new and existing partners to take advantage of IT security models in new ways,” said Kev Eley, VP Sales Europe at LogRhythm. “Our NextGen SIEM platform provides a foundation for digital transformation and innovation in cloud-based applications. It is an ideal fit with Distology’s solutions set and we look forward to growing together across the UK and Ireland.”
