Cybereason’s new ‘Game Changers’ partner investments are the most lucrative in the cybersecurity industry
The channel programme focuses on making strategic partners profitable in their Cybereason businesses by offering new and differentiated value-added services.
Cybereason, creators of the leading Cyber Defense Platform, today announced several new investments to its partner programme, including the launch of Game Changers, a new tier for its most strategic partners. In addition, the company launched Catch30, a new pilot programme that can earn the company’s most strategic partners up to 30% of a resale margin to help them drive profitability and services pull-through, and bring value to mutual customers.
Partners need deep cybersecurity expertise to join Game Changers. Since Ghazal Asif joined Cybereason in January 2019 as Senior Vice President of Worldwide Channels, the company has signed several new strategic partners, including Datacentrix and Securelink. Cybereason will announce additional partnerships in the weeks ahead with value-added resellers, system integrators and managed security service providers (MSSPs).
Cybereason recently raised $200 million in new capital from SoftBank Group Corp. to disrupt the Endpoint Protection Platform market and to aggressively expand its partner programme. Cybereason will also build the world’s first full-stack offering for truly autonomous security.
“Cybereason is committed to providing our most strategic partners with differentiated and highly lucrative incentives to help them grow their Cybereason business. Our new offering is, hands-down, the best cybersecurity that industry has to offer as we want our partners to deepen profitability and provide sticky services while solving the most complex security risks for our joint customers,” said Asif.
“We have added several enablement tracks and certifications to help our partners take our platform to market. From pre-sales to post-sales, our enablement programme is tailored to our partners' needs.”
Cybereason is among the fastest-growing cybersecurity companies in the world, with distribution in all major global markets. Cybereason’s customer base has increased by more than 300% in the past 12 months, thanks to joint efforts with partners, and the company has more than six million endpoints under protection.
“Datacentrix is pleased to partner with Cybereason to bring additional value to our industry-leading Security Operations Centre (SOC), which monitors and defends customer ICT environments in real-time against any potential security threats,” said Wayne Olsen, Head of Security Business Unit, Datacentrix.
“In today's cybersecurity landscape, it is clear that organisations, both at a local level and across the globe, face an increasingly sophisticated set of risks and threats to their businesses. Cybereason's full suite of endpoint detection and response (EDR), next-generation anti-virus (NGAV) and active monitoring technology and services, and its dedication to growing local market share, has us excited about the future of our partnership.”
Additional partner programme enhancements include:
MDR-in-a-Box: Cybereason’s MDR-in-a-Box programme is designed to help strategic partners increase market share through the delivery of new SaaS-driven cybersecurity solutions. By leveraging the Cyber Defense Platform and programme approach, partners can fast track new, high-demand service offerings and provide their customers with a holistic managed solution that addresses their unique needs. MDR-in-a-Box addresses significant demand from Cybereason’s mid-market and enterprise customers, who understand that today’s cybersecurity defences are not sufficient and want a more robust 24x7 solution that addresses all their security.
RetroHunt: Cybereason’s new product enables security analysts to go back in time and answer conclusively whether they are affected by a cyberattack and understand the timeline of low and slow cyber attacks, which can go back in time months or years. In addition, RetroHunt helps solve the data retention challenge for compliance requirements, and is able to understand the full attack lifecycle.
“Cybereason couldn’t be happier, with several newly signed strategic partnerships, including Datacentrix and Securelink, as they are an integral part of our record growth and expansion. Both partners offer tremendous value in their respective regions. We’re launching our rolling thunder campaign to announce additional partners and I couldn’t be happier with all of them,” said Asif.
