Exabeam, the Smarter SIEM™ company, and Westcon-Comstor Americas (Westcon), a SYNNEX Corporation company and premier distribution partner in Latin America, have signed an exclusive distribution agreement to accelerate Exabeam’s business growth in the Latin America (LATAM) region.Through this partnership, the Westcon network will execute Exabeam’s go-to-market strategy for LATAM and provide best-in-class transaction and operations support, enabling existing channel partners to increase Exabeam sales. Additionally, Westcon will recruit and train channel partners, ensuring Exabeam’s growth in new markets throughout the region.Exabeam and Westcon’s mutual channel partners distribute the Exabeam Security Management Platform (SMP) for next-generation security information and event management (SIEM) and machine learning-powered user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA). This enables enterprises seeking security intelligence to more rapidly and efficiently detect, investigate and respond to cyberattacks.
Offered as a hosted cloud offering or managed on-premises solution, the Exabeam SMP provides a data lake, behavioral analytics, case management, security orchestration and incident response automation, which drastically reduces time to investigate and contain threats by 51 percent.

Regardless of industry, security preparedness makes it easier to keep users and data safe,” said Luis Pantoja, sales director at Netcontroll. “The combination of Exabeam’s technology and resources with Westcon-Comstor Americas’ services and support is a win-win and will make it easier for us to focus on selling and growing our SIEM business.” Exabeam’s distribution agreement with Westcon is a significant inroad into the LATAM region and is in line with Exabeam’s rapid global expansion.
