Dome9 Security, a provider of self-managed cloud security, has announced its channel program – the ‘Dome9 Cloud Protection Partner Program’ – to meet the growing demand for their Dome9 Arc cloud security platform.
The Dome9 Arc SaaS platform would allow users to simplify security operations and speed up compliance in their public and multi-cloud environments. As a cloud orchestration solution, Dome9 offers a full range of features and capabilities – from security visualization and in-place remediation to active enforcement and protection.
The Dome9 Arc cloud security solution can be installed “in a matter of minutes” and requires no agents to be deployed. With the announcement of the Dome9 Cloud Protection Partner Program, Dome9 plans to build a robust channel ecosystem to continue to meet the pressing needs of enterprise customers running workloads in public cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
Dome9 is targeting AWS, Azure and GCP certified Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and resellers primarily in North America, as well as channel distributors in EMEA and ANZ, to join its Cloud Protection Partner Program.
Channel Program Leadership
The program will be led by Jim Sortino, who was recently hired by Dome9 as vice president of worldwide sales and operations. The company also signed a key partnership agreement with Westcon-Comstor, a worldwide value-added distributor, to continue Dome9’s global expansion into the enterprise market.
Mr. Sortino is a technology industry veteran with more than 20 years selling network security solutions. Prior to joining Dome9, Sortino oversaw the western operations at Trend Micro and was responsible for strategy and development of enterprise sales, field marketing and the channel. Most recently, he has held sales leadership positions at Application Security and Entrust.
“The customer base for public cloud services is shifting from early adopters and software developers who build and manage their own tools for security and analytics, to enterprises running mission-critical workloads,” said Jim Sortino. “Enterprises are looking for managed services and platforms that they can use, especially in the security realm. This will create a massive business opportunity around providing enterprise-class managed services on top of one or more public cloud services catering to our customers.”
Westcon-Comstor is a value-added distributor of category-leading security, infrastructure, and unified communications solutions with a global network of specialty partners. This partnership extends Westcon-Comstor the right to distribute the Dome9 Arc solution for network security, privileged account management and compliance and governance to resellers worldwide under its brand; Westcon-Comstor will launch this service to its AWS partners in APAC first. Westcon-Comstor AWS resellers in this region that have AWS certifications can provision the Dome9 solution through Westcon-Comstor’s BlueSky Cloud and Service Management Platform.
“The rapid growth in public cloud adoption is creating a massive opportunity for our customers to deliver enterprise-class security solutions to businesses,” said Darryl Grauman – vice president, cloud and services practice, APAC, Westcon-Comstor. “The breadth of capabilities and the powerful automation in the Dome9 Arc solution address a key operational challenge for enterprises. Our partnership with Dome9 allows us to bring a verifiable security and compliance cloud service to our customers.”
