The agreement will enable LogRhythm to rapidly expand its New Zealand reseller footprint and help accelerate its overall business growth to meet the growing demand for next-generation SIEM solutions among medium and large enterprises.
Alex Teh, CEO of Chillisoft, believes that adding LogRhythm to the distributor’s already extensive solution set complements their value proposition for the New Zealand channel.
“We want to be the absolute go-to cybersecurity specialist distributor in New Zealand. LogRhythm’s market-leading solution aggregates all log data, security events, and other machine data, enabling customers to correlate and report on cyber incidents and effect near real-time response and remediation,” says Teh.
“LogRhythm has been a Gartner leader for the last seven years and I’ve personally worked with them for 11 years. Chillisoft’s expertise, specialist focus and locally-based customer service, coupled with LogRhythm’s world-leading technology, will be a compelling proposition for the New Zealand Channel and end-users.”
As data breaches continue to wreak havoc across the globe, security teams increasingly need end-to-end Next-Gen SIEM solutions with native options for host and network-level monitoring, as well as industry-leading analytics and workflow automation to rapidly detect and neutralize the threats targeting their environments.
Simon Howe, LogRhythm Director of Sales APAC, says, “LogRhythm has already had great success in New Zealand with premier foundation customers in the finance, education, central government, hospitality, and retail sectors and we believe there is impressive potential for future growth in this market. We look forward to supporting Chillisoft as they, in turn, invest in resources that will enable them to provide vendor-level expertise in all aspects of our business. This includes technical enablement, sales training, marketing, expert level resources for demonstrations and proof of concepts, with quick and educated responses to queries.”
The also adds that, “LogRhythm’s multi-tenanted MSP-ready capabilities will allow us to help our partners build their own security operation centre (SOC) services. New Zealand IT service providers are embracing the MSP consumption-based business model and Chillisoft has built efficient systems and processes to support them. We also help partners with sales, marketing, and technical expertise.”
