Aura Information Security has capitalised on early market momentum through the signing of Seccom Global as the vendor’s first channel partner in Australia.

Terms of the agreement will see the managed security service provider offer RedShield solutions to new and existing customers, while expanding its portfolio to include a dedicated enterprise grade web-application shielding service.

Headquartered in Wellington, New Zealand, Aura is a provider of information security consulting services to corporate organisations and government, operating as a subsidiary of solutions provider Kordia following its acquisition in November 2015.

To drive partner momentum across Australia, the business appointed Michael Warnock as country manager for cyber security in August 2017, alongside Tim Steele as channel manager for cyber security.

Three months later, and as the exclusive agent for RedShield on both sides of the Tasman, Aura has acted on plans to build a local channel, through the recruitment of Seccom Global.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Seccom Global,” Aura Information Security country manager Michael Warnock said. “They are a well-respected player in the security space and this new relationship will bring mutual value for both current and future customers, and will help increase targeted exposure and reputation for both companies.

"At the same time, Seccom Global’s current line-up of security solutions is a great complementary fit for RedShield.

"As customers demand cyber security service availability from their trusted providers, Seccom Global has successfully risen to the occasion with offering uniquely positioned solutions to drive the scalable and comprehensive protection that customers require for digital transformation.

“Together, there is an opportunity for us to develop strong synergies between our businesses.”

From a technology perspective, RedShield combines web-application shielding software with cyber security services, allowing organisations to protect critical web applications while fixing known vulnerabilities.

Over the past three years, RedShield - which deploys almost 7,000 shields - has blocked more than 82 million attacks, denying 30 million during the month of September 2017 alone.

“With a history of innovation and leading-edge support services, RedShield is a natural progression for us,” Seccom Global sales and marketing director Anita Sheridan-Roddick added.

“This product is like nothing else on the market, it provides an intelligent, and almost immediate solution to malicious behaviours.

“As we grow it’s important that we not only continue to provide our clients with best of breed solutions, but also that we continue to adapt our business to meet our clients’ changing requirements. We see RedShield as a key partner in both our growth and our solutions.”
