Cloud Distribution inks APAC deal with TrapX

Cloud Distribution inks APAC deal with TrapX

New distribution deal covers the local Asia Pacific region

Cloud Distribution has inked a deal to distribute TrapX’s military grade security deception technology in the local market.

TrapX, which is known for its cyber security defence technology, claims that its deception solution provides real-time breach detection and prevention, with the technology aimed at deceiving would-be attackers with turn-key decoys – or traps – that “imitate” organisations’ true assets.

The vendor’s offering, DeceptionGrid, provides automated insight into malicious activity that is often undetected by other types of cyber defence software, the company claims.

It is hoped that the regional distribution agreement with Cloud Distribution will expand the availability of TrapX’s security deception technology across the Asia Pacific region.

“This partnership gives us an incredible opportunity to significantly expand our reach across the region and ensures that our growing customer base receive the same level of service and support they receive directly from us,” TrapX product and marketing vice president, Ori Bach, said.

“This partnership opens up TrapX’s reach through the extensive reseller and channel partner network under Cloud Distribution."

According to Cloud Distribution chief channel officer, Charlie Creegan, TrapX represents a “perfect fit” to complement the Queensland headquartered distributor’s security portfolio.

“We spend a great deal of time researching new vendors and new technology and how this will fit in and complement our existing vendor portfolio and partner network,” Creegan said.

“Unlike firewalls and other endpoint security methods that generate alerts based upon probability, TrapX’s DeceptionGrid alerts are binary.

"DeceptionGrid adds a fake layer to your infrastructure by placing decoy (traps) assets, fake data and other artefacts to your current infrastructure landscape.

“Even from a technology agnostic view, no system or person should ever touch something fake unless it is actively seeking something or there is a misconfiguration. This is what our partners have been looking for and now we have it."
