LONDON, UK, Friday, May 13, 2016

Cato Networks, Digital Guardian and WhiteHat Security join Ignition’s impressive portfolio

May 13, 2016, LondonIgnition Technology a leading Channel Security Solutions Provider (CSSP), specialising in the discovery and adoption of innovative, market leading, next generation Cloud-based security solutions today announced three new additions to its impressive portfolio. These additions include Cato Networks, Digital Guardian and WhiteHat Security, strengthening Ignition’s security software offering through its UK and EMEA channel partner network. Ignition’s channel partners are therefore able to ensure their end-user customers are armed with the most advanced security solutions to combat every level of cyber-security threat.

This month also marks Ignition’s highly successful first 12 months in business. Much of their first year success can be attributed to their ability to secure best of breed cloud-based security solutions for its portfolio, coupled with highly effective marketing and sales activities through its channel network. Ignition’s top selling security solution to-date has been CylancePROTECT®. This product has contributed hugely to Ignition’s phenomenal first year business success and is the result of an exclusive distribution arrangement negotiated with Cylance®, – generally recognised in the industry as the hottest and fastest growing security company of our time.

Stuart McClure, CEO Cylance said:

“We attribute our rapid uptake of CylancePROTECT and growth of our company in the EMEA region to-date largely through our partnership with Ignition Technology. Its unique business model centered on disruptive, cloud-based security solutions is fueling the fundamental shift in the industry to a more technologically sophisticated approach in defeating cyber-attacks.”

The three new partnerships announced today will further enhance Ignition’s offering to the industry and seal Ignition’s dominance as a leading provider of disruptive cyber-security solutions with a focus on Software, Cloud and SaaS based solutions. The next generation Cyber Security companies are:

  • Cato Networks - the newest startup from security investor and serial entrepreneur Shlomo Kramer. Shlomo co-founded Check Point Software, that created the first commercial Firewall, and has made early investments in several successful cybersecurity companies including Palo Alto Networks. Cato delivers Network Security as a Service by tightly integrating enterprise networking and network security - in the Cloud.
  • Digital Guardian - a leader in the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Data Loss Prevention. Digital Guardian is a next generation data protection platform designed to stop data theft.
  • WhiteHat Security – the leader in Application Security Testing. WhiteHat Security combines technology and human intelligence to deliver the world's most powerful solution for application security.

Shlomo Kramer, Co-Founder and CEO Cato Networks said:

“Today’s perimeter-less networks are increasingly difficult to manage, optimize, and secure with the current appliance-based infrastructure. Cato is reducing the cost and complexity of network security by unifying the network and security stack in the Cloud, and delivering a secure network to the business as a turnkey, service-based solution. Ignition Technology will play an important role in enabling partners and customers to realize the tangible benefits of using the Cloud services within their IT infrastructure.”

Ken Levine, CEO and President, Digital Guardian said:

“Digital Guardian is the only data-centric security platform designed to stop data theft across traditional endpoints, mobile devices and cloud applications. We are committed to delivering the highest levels of data protection to every one of our customers, ever more important now with the introduction of the GDPR General Data Protection Regulation. We are pleased to be rolling out both our Next Generation Data Protection Platform and our Managed Security Program in the UK and EMEA to our partners with Ignition Technology.”

Craig Hinkley, CEO, WhiteHat Security commented:

“Web application attacks represent the greatest risk to an organization, but most security budgets are spent on securing and monitoring the perimeter and endpoints. WhiteHat is the first web application security solution to deliver security throughout the whole software development lifecycle, and by combining technology with the expertise of the security experts in our Threat Research Centre, we deliver the industry’s most accurate results. We are looking forward to working with Ignition Technology, our progressive-thinking channel partner, to help organizations across EMEA address the challenges posed by web application attacks while reducing costs, improving productivity, and managing risk.”

Sean Remnant, CSO of Ignition said:

“Ignition is excited to be leading major growth for our outstanding portfolio of cyber-security companies, chosen for innovation and application of software defined solutions. Ignition really is an agile alternative to traditional distribution. Our ambition is to build Ignition into a clear market leader throughout the EMEA region.”
