Hemisphere inks distribution deal with BeyondTrust

BeyondTrust customers include eight of the world's 10 largest banks

Australian distributor, Hemisphere Technologies, has announced a new channel partnership with BeyondTrust, a US-based pioneer of context-aware solutions for privilege and vulnerability management. BeyondTrust is a US based company which provides context aware solutions for privilege and vulnerability management to eight of the world's 10 largest banks.

Other customers include eight of the world's 10 largest aerospace and defence firms, and seven of the 10 largest US pharmaceutical companies, as well as universities across the globe.

Hemisphere Technologies, managing director, Peter Phokos, said the company had been observing closely how Australian companies and government agencies were grappling with security issues relating to privileged account management.

"The solutions BeyondTrust provides have been tested across the highest levels of US Government, aerospace and military organisations and resulted in great success," he said.

"This gives us the confidence to present a comprehensive deployment plan to local Australian organisations." Phokos said he was confident the partnership would offer the Australian channel effective and trusted solutions, which corresponded with Australia’s ‘Common Criteria Certification’ and protection profile requirements. A spokesperson for BeyondTrust said the partnership marked Hemisphere Technologies’ strategy of expanding its security offerings from a core group of technology specialisation areas towards complimentary IT consumables and products.

"This strategy corresponds with its own bid to cement its foothold in the Australian and New Zealand markets," a spokesperson said. BeyondTrust’s APAC regional sales director, Eddie Stefanescu, said the company excited to partner with an established distributor that is looking to expand their offerings through best of breed technologies.

"BeyondTrust’s security vision coincides with Hemisphere Technologies’ strategy of merging IT, vulnerability management, privilege access, and compliance-based solutions to provide a more secure network," he said.

"This partnership allows us to translate what we do globally to the local IT channel."
