Ignition Technology strengthens XDR vision with Corelight distribution agreement

Industry leading network traffic analysis technology and services now available to Ignition Technology’s channel partners across Europe

London, UK – January 28th, 2020 – Ignition Technology today announced a distribution partnership with Corelight to establish, grow and support its channel community across the UK, Ireland and Nordic regions. Ignition Technology is the first value added distribution (VAD) partner for Corelight throughout Europe.

Corelight makes powerful network traffic analysis (NTA) solutions that transform network traffic into rich logs, extracted files, and security insights for more effective incident response, threat hunting and forensics. Corelight Sensors run on Zeek (formerly called “Bro”), the open source  network security monitoring tool used by thousands of organisations including Fortune 500 companies, major government agencies and large research universities.

“Our customers are sophisticated enterprises that have developed trusted relationships with strong solutions integrators that offer both security expertise and customer support,” said Steve Mallard, vice president of international sales at Corelight.

“In turn, we seek to partner with distributors that are connected to the right channel partners that will help us to provide the right visibility into network data for our mutual customers. We believe that we have found a true partner in Ignition Technology, one that shares our values and will help us to continue to expand our footprint worldwide.”

One of the first channel partners to sign up with Ignition in respect to Corelight is Cyberseer, a managed security service provider (MSSP).

“Cyberseer provides, with Corelight and other selected vendors, a set of technologies that are integrated and orchestrated to drive our MSS service,” said Garath Lauder, director at Cyberseer. “Ignition Technology has been instrumental in bringing new and innovative solutions to our enterprise customers helping us to build our innovative service offering.”

As part of its value-added distribution agreement, Ignition provides pre-sales and technical enablement to channel partners to quickly demonstrate value to customers. Initial partner recruitment will focus on security specialists with expertise across a broad range of enterprise and vertical markets.

“Having visibility into the full infrastructure stack, from endpoint to application and everything in-between, is crucial in security investigations,” said Sean Remnant, Chief Strategy Officer at Ignition Technology.

“A security analyst needs high fidelity network traffic data to complete the picture of a breach, attack or anomalous behaviour. Our partnership with Corelight provides a proven platform for on premise and cloud infrastructure traffic analysis, extending and completing the capability of Ignition’s XDR platform that includes visibility for endpoints and cloud,” Remnant adds.

(X) Detection and Response is a concept where organisations collate security telemetry from all networking and Infrastructure into a centralised big data platform to allow for incident investigation and breach response.

“While it’s understood that we need data from all our sources to get a complete picture it will only be the larger, more security mature organisations that have the skills to manage it,”added Remnant.., “With Ignition’s approach, both large enterprise and SMB will be able to benefit from the latest technology either by deployment of the solutions themselves or by taking it as-a-service from a trusted channel partner.”
