Cyber security specialist distributor Chillisoft has signed a deal with Tripwire giving the vendor access to its 1,500 resellers and integrators across New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.

Enterprise cyber security vendor Tripwire offers critical security controls, vulnerability management, and file integrity monitoring (FIM). Chillisoft expects Tripwire's cloud-based management service ExpertOPs SCM and VM to drive local interest in the vendor's solutions.

“We continue to build on our longstanding partnerships, bringing Tripwire technology into our portfolio, including other partner solutions like ESET, to offer a complementary set of cyber security solutions to cater for modern businesses and workplaces across Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands,” said Chillisoft CEO Alex Teh.

“With Tripwire ExpertOps, our partners can effectively supply these services to their customers at good healthy margins, and avoid inviting a specialist third-party into the relationship,” said Teh.

The distributor is offering partners a range of support and incident response options, including a direct line into Tripwire engineers, support plans and Chillisoft Labs – its Auckland-based security and development practice.

Chillisoft is in the process of integrating Tripwire’s APIs into the Chillisoft Lab environment, with plans for a security information and event management (SIEM) platform to manage security feeds and alerts from vendors in the distributor’s portfolio.

“Chillisoft is the cyber security heavy-hitter in the region,” said Tripwire A/NZ regional manager Wayne Thompson. “They’ve got the grunt and expertise to represent Tripwire both commercially and technically, providing a vendor-level presence spanning technical enablement, sales training, marketing, and ongoing support.”

In January, LogRhythm appointed Chillisoft as its distributor for NZ and the Pacific Islands. In November 2018, the distributor scored a deal with Forcepoint.
