TriGeo Partners With COMPUTERLINKS to Launch North American Channel Partner Program to the Midmarket

TriGeo Network Security, the leading provider of security information and event management (SIEM) technology for midmarket enterprises, today announced its partnership with COMPUTERLINKS to deliver a comprehensive channel partner program in North America. COMPUTERLINKS is a global value-added distributor (VAD) with a strong heritage in security and IT infrastructure solutions.

"We have relationships with some of the world's most innovative security companies and TriGeo's SIM solution compliments and extends our portfolio," said Russell Zientek, CEO of COMPUTERLINKS North America. "TriGeo's ability to actively respond to network threats coupled with its exclusive focus on midmarket companies makes it an ideal offering for our partners."

Resellers are working harder than ever to deliver and support business-critical network security solutions including firewalls, web filtering, identity management, anti-malware and much more. TriGeo Security Information Manager (SIM) sits in the center of all of these devices and systems to monitor and correlate logs, enable compliance and actively respond to security threats -- giving resellers the ability to deliver a best-in-class, security ecosystem.

TriGeo SIM is the industry's only real-time SIEM solution designed specifically for the midmarket. Delivered as a fully configured appliance, the solution supports hundreds of network products, comes stocked with more than 650 network monitoring rules and over 240 pre-built reports for compliance and network analysis. TriGeo SIM goes far beyond log management, providing real-time log analysis to identify network attacks and policy violations as they happen and initiate proactive responses such quarantining, blocking, USB defense and controlling processes, accounts and privileges. All of this is available at a price starting below $20,000. The company has hundreds of customers across financial services, retail, healthcare, education, government, utility and media/entertainment.

"Our partnership with COMPUTERLINKS will help us reach out to midmarket organizations through reseller partners," said Michelle Dickman, president and CEO of TriGeo Network Security. "This is especially relevant today as these companies face mounting regulatory pressures, shrinking budgets and increasingly complex internal and external threats -- and they are actively searching for effective ways to address these issues."
