e92plus have been chosen by Blueliv, leading cyber threat intelligence provider, to be their UK distributor and to help grow their UK channel business. With e92plus’ extensive cybersecurity knowledge and experience, the partnership will enable channel VARs and MSPs to respond to the growing demand for user friendly insight, data and actionable intelligence into the next generation of cyber threats.
Gartner forecasts the Threat Intelligence market will reach almost $1.8 billion by 2021, and it is anticipated to provide very high growth opportunities over the next five years, with an annual average growth rate of more than 25%.
For the cybersecurity channel, threat intelligence represents a huge opportunity to access that new revenue. Sitting alongside traditional and next-generation solutions, Blueliv, for example, supply highly accurate and verified global data feeds that organisations can use with their existing SIEM, and other security appliances, to detect and prioritize advanced threats. It’s delivered in STIX/TAXII standard using open integration standards, helping return improved ROI from SIEM solutions and empowering organisations to make better decisions from the ever increasing volume of information.
What does this mean? CISOs can now predict where threats will focus, respond with speed when an attack does hit home, and feed red team exercises and forensic analysis to improve resilience for the future.
Mukesh Gupta, CEO and founder of e92plus commented “e92plus are delighted to be partnering with Blueliv and helping the leader in Threat Intelligence grow their UK channel. As the market changes and our VARs increasingly look to expand into margin rich services, Blueliv offers the perfect opportunity to combine that with one of the fastest growing areas in cybersecurity. The threat from bad actors, criminals and nation states has never been more complex, and Blueliv offers personalised insight that enables our partners to support their customers in taking cybersecurity from a reactive to a proactive posture, enabling them to better manage cyber risk and support the business-wide digital transformation agenda.”
Blueliv have already been recognised for industry leadership and promoting new collaborative models in the Enterprise Security and Enterprise Threat Detection categories at the Computing.co.uk Security Excellence Awards, as well as being named ‘Threat Intelligence Company of the Year’ by the Cybersecurity Breakthrough Awards 2018 and been listed as a ‘Cool Vendor’ by Gartner.
Zoe Clark, Channel Director, Blueliv, said: “The decision to work with e92plus was a simple one: they are one of the most well-established and trusted UK cybersecurity VADs offering award-winning value added distribution services. They have the perfect background in launching new disruptive technologies into the UK Channel and building strong partner communities, and we knew that they would complement our channel-first model. Threat Intelligence is a new but rapidly expanding marketplace, offering ample opportunity with huge growth potential in the UK. Blueliv is at the pinnacle of this with our award-winning Threat Compass solution, delivering modular and targeted SaaS threat intelligence, and helping organisations accelerate business performance and improve security resilience”.
Partners will enjoy support from e92plus through their award winning sales, marketing and technical services, generating new revenue streams and for MSPs, building threat intelligence into their portfolio to deliver real time, actionable insight immediately – from traditional threats such as domain protection, data leakage and the dark web to social media and hacktivism. Mukesh continues “Services such as Threat Intelligence will often highlight the need to strengthen certain areas, or evolve the cyber-defence to meet new threats – helping partners identify the most important areas to focus, and driving cross-sell opportunities”.
