EclecticIQ joins forces with Pink Elephant South Africa
EclecticIQ and Pink Elephant partner to bring leading cyber threat intelligence to the South African cyber security community. The first step in this partnership will be a joint presence at the ITWeb Security Summit, Johannesburg, on 22-23 May, where EclecticIQ's product portfolio will be showcased.
EclecticIQ, the global provider of Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) technology solutions and Fusion Center operator, today announced a partnership with leading IT management specialist Pink Elephant in South Africa. As part of EclecticIQ's global expansion strategy, Pink Elephant will leverage its experience to establish the flagship products, EclecticIQ Platform and EclecticIQ Fusion Center, within the local market.
"We are excited to enter the rapidly growing South African market, with its strong demand for cyber threat intelligence solutions," said Joost van Hest, SVP Sales & Solutions at EclecticIQ. "With their longstanding experience, competence and local network, Pink Elephant was an obvious choice for us when we decided to enter into this region. We look forward to establishing ourselves as Cyber Threat Intelligence market leader in South Africa thanks to this partnership."
Pink Elephant has more than 40 years of experience and is a known thought leader in the IT industry. The company will offer sales, consulting, training and implementation on behalf of EclecticIQ to South African and African customers.
"This partnership with EclecticIQ builds on our existing security offering in the secure remote access and privileged access management space with global award-winning threat identification toolsets," said Neil Petford, Regional Director at Pink Elephant. "As companies are becoming increasingly more digital, data and cyber security forms an integral role in their wider IT management strategies, and by expanding on our existing IT security offerings, we are able to provide a holistic solution for our customers across not just technology, but advisory and education too."
In a first joint effort, both companies will present these products at the ITWeb Security Summit in Johannesburg on 22-23 May, of which Pink Elephant will also be a sponsor.
