BlackStratus To Deliver Cloud-Based SIEM Service CYBERShark To U.S. Resellers Through Tech Data

PISCATAWAY, N.J., Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BlackStratus, a leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance technology tailored for both small to midsize businesses (SMBs) and large enterprises, today announced an exclusive agreement with Tech Data Corporation (Nasdaq: TECD), one of the world's largest distributors of technology products and services, under which Tech Data will deliver BlackStratus' cloud-based Security Information Event Management (SIEM) service, CYBERShark, to its network of solution providers in the United States. The award-winning CYBERShark technology is the first white-label SIEM platform designed specifically to monitor and remediate cyber security threats and compliance violations for SMBs.  

A trusted cyber security and compliance pioneer bringing the latest innovations in SIEM technology to both the SMB and enterprise markets.

CYBERShark takes BlackStratus' proven enterprise-class security and compliance platform, trusted by thousands of large enterprise customers, and delivers it via the cloud to SMBs at an affordable price point. Cybercriminals often attack SMBs as a way to launch attacks against large enterprise targets. In a recent report about cyber security threats on SMBs, the National Security Alliance showed that 71% of data breaches target small businesses and that 60% of small businesses close within six months of experiencing a data breach.

"Our agreement with BlackStratus gives Tech Data the ability to offer Security as a Service (SECaaS) to our solution providers and help them reduce risk, manage compliance, and remediate threats for their clients," said Tracy Holtz, director of Product Marketing, Security and Information Management at Tech Data. "We are excited to add BlackStratus to Tech Data's portfolio of industry-leading security solutions and look forward to bringing SIEM capabilities to our SMB and mid-market partners."

In addition to their own data, most SMBs have access to partners' computer systems, valuable data, and intellectual property. Previously, the SMB market was unable to afford advanced security and compliance technology because of the enormous cost, leaving only large enterprises the means to afford the only technology capable of identifying cyber security threats in real-time.

"SMBs are at even greater risk today to cyber-attacks than large enterprises, so CYBERShark was created to provide them with the same level of protection that larger firms enjoy—but at a price point they can finally afford," said Dale Cline, CEO of BlackStratus. "We're delighted to have a partner like Tech Data that will help us further penetrate the U.S. market with our new CYBERShark security and compliance service by growing our base of channel partners."

  • Multi-tenancy support silos customer accounts and files, protecting privacy and data integrity
  • Real-time attack visualization identifies zero-day attacks based on rules-based, vulnerability, statistical, and historical correlations
