Fidelis Cybersecurity partners with Starlink to deliver detection and response to European businesses, it has been reported.

Fidelis Cybersecurity, the leader in automated threat detection and threat response, has announced a major partnership with StarLink, which will become the main security distributor of Fidelis’ network breach detection, endpoint detection and response, and deception solutions to enterprises across Europe to further enhance Fidelis’ reach across the region.

StarLink is one of the region’s largest and fastest growing security distributors, with an on-the-ground presence in 16 countries. StarLink helps channel partners differentiate offerings and assists customers in the identification of threat risks and priorities for enterprise security.

Fidelis joins StarLink’s channel network of IT security and specialised partners to offer Fidelis Elevate, its Automated Detection and Response (ADR) platform and intelligent Deception, as a complete “turnkey” solution for enterprises. The platform dramatically improves the effectiveness and efficiency of security operations by delivering comprehensive visibility, intelligent deception, automatic alert validation, and increased response across network and endpoints. StarLink’s channel network has a dedicated team to support new and existing resellers, and the partnership will help extend Fidelis’ channel base in the region.

“Cyber-attacks are growing in sophistication and many enterprise security teams lack the complete, visibility-enhancing technology to both see and respond to those threats,” said Paul Roberts, regional director, Northern Europe at Fidelis Cybersecurity. “Companies are mistakenly going down the route of creating patchwork defences to respond to modern threats – but this ultimately creates more work and greater complexity.

“Our partnership with StarLink will meet the market demand for enterprises looking for a single, but complete, platform that automates the detection and response of attacks, and creates an opportunity for active defence. With its channel network, StarLink is uniquely positioned to meet this demand by introducing our solutions to key markets, as well as helping to create additional revenue and growth opportunities for our partners,” concluded Roberts.

“We are delighted to partner with Fidelis and for it to join our strategic channel network,” said Avinash Advani, SVP – Strategic Alliances & Sales for North America and Europe, at StarLink. “Too many enterprises still over-complicate their defence strategies and this puts a major strain on security operations, especially with the influx of alerts. With the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into effect in May 2018, enterprises will need to have an active defence strategy to prevent critical alerts from slipping through the net and risking a hefty fine from the Information Commissioners Office (ICO).”

StarLink is acclaimed as one of the fastest growing “True” Value-added Distributor across the Middle East, Turkey and Africa regions with on-the-ground presence in 16 countries including UK and USA. With its innovate Security Framework, StarLink is recognised as a “Trusted Security Advisor” to over 2200 plus enterprise and government customers that use one or more of StarLink’s best-of-breed and market-leading technologies, sold through its Channel network of over 1100 Partners.

The StarLink Solution Lifecycle helps Channel Partners differentiate offerings and assists customers to identify key risks and define priorities for addressing IT Security gaps relating to compliance and next-generation threat protection.
