Corr-Serve wins exclusive distribution rights to Rebasoft
SA distributor Corr-Serve has acquired the exclusive distribution rights for UK-based Rebasoft’s network and perimeter security system in sub-Saharan Africa.
Under the terms of the partnership, Corr-Serve will be exclusive distributor of the system in South Africa and sub-Saharan countries, and is committed to growing the market for Rebasoft through its existing broad reseller base of niche security solutions partners.
Rebasoft offers support for key security controls through a single platform, enabling day-to-day security monitoring and supporting automation capabilities that rationalise overlapping monitoring systems.
According to the companies, there is a bewildering array of cyber security solutions available on the market, and many businesses can find them expensive, cumbersome and difficult to deploy.
Rebasoft was designed to provide a fresh approach to renovate existing security controls as well as reduce the number of security systems required to install and maintain.
Philip Harragan, CEO of Rebasoft, says traditional IT security normally depends on multiple, disconnected systems and a passive “check-box” approach, and with modern, aggressive cyber threats, this approach is inadequate.
“Organisations need to move from outdated, defensive risk management to a more flexible, active stance on cyber resilience. This means constantly identifying any security ‘gaps’ within an IT infrastructure and proactively closing them,” Harragan adds.
He says no entity can be 100% protected all the time. Ever-evolving threats mean security gaps will appear in any business. “In fact, the more your business relies on technology, the more gaps will appear.”
Product director of Corr-Serve, Mark van Vuuren, says his company is excited to add Rebasoft to its portfolio of security solutions, not only for South Africa but for the continent. “The opportunities presented by a platform that can produce immediate results and create cost savings is what our partners are looking for in the current market conditions.”
