Help AG has signed new Authorized Solution Partner (ASP) and Security Service Provider (SSP) partnership agreements with Bit9 + Carbon Black in the GCC. “Partnering with Bit9 + Carbon Black allows us to better mitigate and remediate cyber attacks and breaches. We can protect customer endpoints and perform rapid large scale investigation in the event of an attack. This accelerates remediation, allowing us to get customer IT systems up and running with minimal impact on business,” says Stephan Berner, Managing Director at Help AG. “Also, because we will be using this technology ourselves, we will be capable of providing an unmatched level of expertise and support to our customer base for this solution.”

Bit9’s Connect Partner Program includes a number of Help AG’s existing vendors such as FireEye, Palo Alto Networks, HP, RSA, and Splunk. Elaborating on this synergy, Stephan says, “This was a factor in our strategic decision to partner with Bit9 as combining best-in-class technologies to deliver comprehensive IT security solutions is a core principle of our business. We are keen on growing this partnership to benefit the enterprise businesses that choose our security services and systems integration offerings.”

Jessica Couto, Director, World Wide Channel Sales, Bit9 + Carbon Black, said: “Help AG has been a leading information security services provider in the Middle East for many years. The organization’s pioneering platforms will complement our own roster of advanced applications, which will lead to stronger market expansion, increased productivity, greater efficiency, as well as a wider and more diverse reach. We look forward to the extensive range of opportunities that this partnership will bring, and we believe that this joint venture will allow us to foster stronger relations with key customers across various sectors.”
