K2 Cyber Security, provider of the next generation in application workload protection, today announced that the company has signed a distribution agreement with SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX), a leading business process services company.
Through the agreement, SYNNEX will work with K2 Cyber Security to bring the K2 Security Platform to market through its extensive network of channel partners while supporting them before and during the sale. This agreement is another milestone in K2’s ongoing strategy to rapidly expand its customer footprint across the U.S.
Together with SYNNEX, K2 Cyber Security is delivering the ability to secure web applications and container workloads against sophisticated attacks, including OWASP Top 10, memory-based, and zero-day attacks. This provides significant value add to customers and helps value-added resellers differentiate their security offerings.
“K2 Cyber Security provides an innovative platform offering considerable capabilities to strengthen security infrastructure for customers,” said Reyna Thompson, Senior Vice President, Product Management, North America, SYNNEX. “This is a strong addition to the array of cybersecurity products SYNNEX brings to the channel to address some of the most common threats to today’s businesses.”
Pravin Madhani, CEO and Co-Founder of K2 Cyber Security, said the agreement with SYNNEX will play a significant role in rapidly expanding its geographic reach and sales coverage across the U.S. as more companies adopt application workload security that resides on the server and addresses runtime security needs.
“Faced with an overwhelming number of false alerts, continued breaches and cyber attacks, companies need to move to application security that doesn’t depend on prior attack knowledge,” Madhani said. “SYNNEX’ best-in-class distribution and logistics capabilities, combined with its cybersecurity expertise and a vast network of channel partners, make it ideal for promoting and selling our unique application workload protection on a national scale.”
