bluedog Security Monitoring has expanded its reach to Australia, New Zealand and Asia Pacific with a new distribution agreement.
emt Distribution, a leading value-added distributor, offers cybersecurity solutions that address the Australian Signals Directorate’s top four mitigation strategies – dubbed Catch, Patch, Match – as well as the broader strategies in the Australian Government’s Information Security Manual (ISM).
emt’s Adelaide and Singapore offices will now offer the full range of bluedog’s solutions to channel partners, MSPs and MSSPs. They include the popular Microsoft Office 365 monitoring, a low-cost ‘work from home’ solution that allows organisations with remote workers to protect their data, and is the only one of its type backed by a live security team.
Meanwhile bluedog’s virtual CISO service provides access to an experienced security professional to assess risk and ensure compliance with standards; while its managed detection and response (MDR) service allows even small organisations to have the reassurance of 24-hour monitoring.
“Fixing incidents after they have happened is notoriously difficult and expensive, and can be massively disruptive to organisations with limited cybersecurity resources,” said Shane Mahney, General Manager of emt Distribution. “Organisations need a collaborative range of systems and support services to fight cyber attackers effectively. bluedog provides a robust stack of preventive solutions to fill the gaps many organisations have.”
bluedog, which is based in London with a security operations centre in Manila, aims to disrupt the market for security monitoring by bringing the type of services once limited to large corporates within reach of all. The new partnership further extends its distribution network which covers Europe, the Middle East, India, Malaysia and the Phillippines.
Paul Lomax of bluedog said: “Australia and Asia Pacific are key markets for bluedog. emt Distribution are a highly experienced team with a thorough understanding of the needs of users in the region. This new partnership is an important step in building our worldwide network.”
“emt Distribution is delighted to add bluedog’s advanced network security solutions to our cybersecurity portfolio,” said Richard Rundle, CEO of emt Distribution. “bluedog’s entry into the region gives our channel partners and their customers access to a new level of cybersecurity protection with enterprise-grade sophistication at an accessible price point.”
