Menlo Security Enters Middle East IT Market Through Help AG Partnership
March 2017 by Emmanuelle Lamandé
Help AG announced that it has signed a reseller agreement with Menlo Security to provide consulting, implementation and support services for the vendor’s Menlo Security Isolation Platform (MSIP) to businesses in the Middle East. The partnership aims to address the constant threat of web-based malware that organizations face without impacting end-user experience.
Unlike current prevention systems that attempt to distinguish "good" content from "bad" content, MSIP takes a unique approach by executing all Web content in a public or private cloud. Through this isolated execution, it allows users to interact with websites, links and online documents without coming into contact with malicious code. Only malware-free rendering information is sent to the native browser on the user’s endpoint. Furthermore, as MSIP requires no client software or plug-ins, users can enjoy a seamless and transparent experience with no perceivable latency.
Help AG has undergone Menlo Security’s set of comprehensive technical and sales trainings, and its security experts have achieved full certification by the vendor. The reseller will deploy MSIP for customers, either via the public or private cloud, in conjunction with existing Web Security gateways, next generation firewalls, network sandboxes or other security systems. Through its locally-based Cyber Security Support division, Help AG will also provide 24x7 support services via phone, email and web as well as onsite services around the clock with a 2-hour response time within the UAE.
