Acunetix appoints Bulwark as regional distributor
Acunetix has signed a distribution agreement with Bulwark Technologies. Under the agreement, Bulwark’s channel partners will offer the vendor’s web application security solutions to enterprise customers across the Middle East. As part of the agreement, Bulwark will assist Acunetix to establish and grow in the region through its channel network and a complete focus on partner enablement.
The distributor will also organise sales and technical training sessions along with various marketing initiatives to boost sales in the Middle East. Bulwark will also provide technical support to the channel community through its team of technical experts.
Jose Thomas Menacherry, Managing Director, Bulwark Technologies said, “Bulwark is a focused and specialised distributor in the cyber security area. There is a perfect synergy between our companies. The addition of Acunetix in our product portfolio complements our current offering of security solutions and would provide Bulwark with new avenues for growth and revenue opportunities for both of us.”
Christina Nicole Woodward, Vice President Sales, Acunetix said, “Acunetix technologies are second-to-none, providing cutting-edge vulnerability detection and the only product on the market able to detect out-of-band vulnerabilities automatically. We are confident that by partnering with Bulwark we will continue to increase awareness in the Middle Eastern region. Bulwark consists of an impressive portfolio of customers covering different verticals in the region, has a wide network of partners and houses a competent team of technical, sales and marketing experts. All these attributes make Bulwark a valued partner.”
A recent study by Acunetix found that over 55% of websites scanned over a 12 month period contained high-severity vulnerabilities that could risk not only brand and reputational damage, but data breaches and major fines associated with these.
