Queensland IT security services provider Baidam Solutions has been named as reseller and consulting partner for LogRhythm.
The new partnership will enable the security intelligence vendor to utilise Baidam Solutions’ relationships in the Federal Government while helping provide cyber skills training and development among the Indigenous community.
As part of the partnership, LogRhythm will work with Baidam Solutions’ leadership team to provide partner enablement, marketing, pre-sales and post-sales support to drive success.
“We see LogRhythm as being both a challenger and an innovator in the industry just as Baidam Solutions itself is challenging the status quo in cyber security provision,” Baidam Solutions CEO and co-founder Phillip Jenkinson said.
“Their technical specs are second to none and we are excited about LogRhythm’s long-term product development which recognises that enterprises need solutions to help them monitor for known and unknown threats and behavioural changes.”
According to Baidam, LogRhythm was a ‘natural fit’ for the company due to the vendor’s capabilities in s ecurity information and event management (SIEM), user and entity behaviour (UEBA) and security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) solutions.
Founded in 2018, Baidam Solutions claims to be the first Indigenous IT security company in Queensland, servicing enterprise, Federal and State Government departments, agencies and not-for-profit organisations. These include Indigenous Business Australia, Reconciliation Australia and Advance Queensland.
It was recently one of 21 providers to join the Digital Transformation Agency’s (DTA) Software Licensing and Services Panel, commercial off the shelf (COTS) Software.
Baidam Solutions has an ongoing national ICT partnership with DXC Technology, providing security solutions through a security-as-a-service model.
The company also runs a program known as the Baidam Initiative, which provides both specialist IT security training courses and employment opportunities for regional and remote Indigenous communities.
“LogRhythm chose to partner with Baidam Solutions because of its superior network security and application security expertise, great customer experience and its understanding and shared values of empowering more Indigenous involvement in the technology community,” said Simon Howe, LogRhythm Asia Pacific sales director.
“By working with Baidam Solutions. we are not only actively supporting the Indigenous community, we are challenging the status quo surrounding cyber security skills shortages in Australia.”
LogRythm works with both systems integrators and managed security services providers and works with a two tier-channel model, where the distributor-authorised local channel resellers are well supported by not only LogRhythm in country but by the local distributor.
In addition to Baidam Solutions, LogRhythm also works with Australian partners such as Content Security, IPSec and Cyber Research, Ernst & Young, KPMG, Deloitte and Unisys.
