Paris, 24 March 2016 – Following on from the 2014 launch of its “Partner Connect” international partner programme with its network protection solution, Stormshield, a key player in the cyber security market, is now adding a new dimension to the programme with the incorporation of Stormshield Endpoint Security, its solution for workstations, servers and terminals.
At a time of hyperconnectivity and mobility, businesses are facing increasing numbers of ever more targeted and sophisticated attacks (more than 4 million ransomware attacks were recorded in the second half of 2015). To address these new threats within the framework of the “Partner Connect” programme, Stormshield is now expanding Stormshield Endpoint Security – its solution for protecting workstations, servers and terminals – through an international network of qualified partners.
This next generation solution offers proactive protection against sophisticated attacks, controls authorised and prohibited actions on workstations and servers, and blocks potentially dangerous behaviour. This solution also has a centralised administration interface for easy day-to-day management of security.
The Stormshield Endpoint Security programme offers administrators and engineers three levels of certification – Silver, Gold and Platinum – with differing expertise requirements. To become a certified partner, the distributor must complete the appropriate Stormshield training and pass the examination at the end of the course. Partners who are already certified in Stormshield Network Security are invited to undertake training so that they can also become Stormshield Endpoint Security partners.
“The aim of this Stormshield Endpoint Security programme is to increase the quality and accessibility of our security offer for terminals. We will thus be able to offer a more local service and top quality support for end customers through dedicated partners in numerous countries. And partners have the benefit of local sales and marketing support, as well as ongoing training.” says Sonda d’Alton, Stormshield Channel Marketing Manager.
