HANDD Business Solutions Appointed Securonix First UK VAR

HANDD Business Solutions is proud to announce a new partnership with Securonix, the industry leader in security analytics that predict, prevent, detect and contain threats to enterprise security. HANDD will be the first UK Value Added Reseller (VAR) for Securonix.

Securonix’s platform will complement the detection stage of HANDD’s Protect, Detect and Respond cycle to combat the growing threat of security incidents happening inside organizations. As it stands, insider threats currently account for approximately 50% of all data breaches. Early detection of these threats is key.

Securonix helps businesses protect their data by using User & Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) with machine learning capabilities that analyze and monitor patterns of behavior for indications of threats, often predicting threats before they even happen.

“In a world where data is always on the move, organizations are under constant threat of a breach to their IT infrastructure. While Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) tools detect threats the organization already knows to watch out for, they don’t protect organizations from trusted employees with privileged access in the way in which UEBA does. Quite simply, a high-profile attack like Snowden would never have happened if UEBA had been in place,” explains Chris Farrelly, Sales Director, HANDD Business Solutions.

High profile data breaches have become a common occurrence and serve as a stark reminder of the continuous threat insiders acting with stolen, compromised or abused user credentials pose to enterprise security.

“Our partnership with Securonix is significant in that it greatly strengthens the ‘detect’ and ‘respond’ phase of our solution. Using this machine-learning platform, we can distinguish between an employee with privileged access who is doing their job, and one who has gone rogue. This enables us to alert our clients to any potential threats, and ensure their data is protected throughout its life, wherever it travels,” adds Chris Farrelly.

The Securonix platforms use UEBA to build up a profile by pulling together data such as access activity, peer group analysis, behavior analytics and more to identify specific patterns of potentially threatening behavior, providing early warnings of possible data theft, cyber-attacks or fraud.

“Securonix is the most mature UEBA solution in the global market, however, we have only been active in EMEA presence for a year, during which time we have been looking for proactive, forward thinking value added resellers to help us across the territory,” said Matt Pearson, Channel Director, EMEA and APAC, Securonix. “HANDD Business Solutions ticks all the boxes for us. They have 45% penetration into the FTSE 100, they are professional and like to embrace new and leading edge technology. HANDD Business Solutions are our first VAR in the U.K. and will be instrumental in helping fuel our ambitious growth plans.”
