Westcon-Comstor has signed a new distribution agreement with Okta, bringing its identity solutions to the Southern region.
“Identity-based attacks can be difficult for organisations to detect and prevent, due to their focus on exploiting individual employee behaviour and credentials, who may not be well versed in spotting cybersecurity threats. As organisations continue to operate over multiple devices and in cloud environments to support remote working, the network perimeter has vastly increased, which creates the difficult task to have visibility on all remote users,” said Daniel Hurel, Vice President, Westcon Cyber Security & Next Gen Solutions, EMEA.
“Okta’s identity-based security solution removes this complexity for network admins by integrating seamless solutions, such as multi-factor authentication. Bringing this service into Westcon-Comstor’s security portfolio gives our partners the tools they need to reduce the attacks on their customer’s employees and importantly, limit any disruption to user experience.”
“As we look to expand our footprint in the Southern region, Westcon-Comstor became an obvious partner for us. As they leverage our top technologies such as Zscaler, Palo Alto Networks, Proofpoint and others, we are excited to be partnering with them. It makes Westcon the natural fit for us.” Said Giovanni Natalino, Head of Channel & Alliances EMEA.
