Help AG inks deal with Skybox Security

Help AG has signed an agreement with Skybox Security that will allow the company to integrate Skybox’s security management solutions into its Cyber Security Operations Centre (CSOC), adding powerful new security analytics capabilities to Help AG’s Managed Security Services (MSS) offering. As a Skybox Premier Partner, Help AG will also offer the Skybox Security Suite for vulnerability and threat management, firewall change management and compliance monitoring within both IT and OT environments, to enterprises across the Middle East.

Stephan Berner, CEO at Help AG said, “As a reseller dedicated to IT security alone, we are keen to bundle our expertise in consultancy, integration and support around the solutions offered by Skybox, thereby creating a truly differentiated offering.”

Initially leveraging Help AG’s local presence in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, the companies will look to engage with leading organizations from the Oil & Gas, government, finance and utilities sectors in these countries.

“Our channel strategy has been key to helping us set a pace for record growth this year,” said Jono Clarke Storey, Channel Director at Skybox.

Customers will be able to either consume Skybox security management solutions as a part of Help AG’s MSS offering, or choose to have the reseller integrate the Suite into their IT infrastructure. Help AG will also offer comprehensive Level 1 and Level 2 support services on behalf of the vendor and has created a ‘Skybox Security Lab’ environment to rapidly and reliably recreate any troubleshooting issues customers may face.
