Accelerate Business Growth in Latin America Region

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 4 novembre 2019

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. In addition, its analytics feature uses data science to identify employees’ behavioral patterns and abnormalities that may be indicative of security threats, in contrast to outdated signature-based detection methods.“Today’s threat environment puts security at the forefront of every organization’s plan. 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. With this agreement, security-focused resellers in every Latin American country can now offer and sell Exabeam to their customers.

Blue Growth a priority as EU launches Adriatic and Ionian Strategy

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 18 luglio 2014

Mediterranean Sea1Better cooperation between countries in the Adriatic and Ionian regions is needed to address shared challenges and better exploit joint opportunities. This Strategy seeks to facilitate this co-ordination and will help the regions’ 70 million citizens to benefit from a boost in the maritime economy, the preservation of the marine environment, stronger transport and energy links and increased tourism.
The European Commission has officially launched a new EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region to help its 70 million residents to reap the benefit of closer cooperation in areas like promoting the maritime economy, preserving the marine environment, completing transport and energy links and boosting sustainable tourism. The Strategy will also provide a valuable opportunity non EU-countries to work alongside EU members, in particular contributing to the integration of the Western Balkans into the European Union. This is the first EU ‘macro-regional strategy’ with such a large proportion of non-EU countries (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia) cooperating with EU members (Croatia, Greece, Italy, and Slovenia). The Strategy mainly revolves around the opportunities of the maritime economy – ‘blue growth’, land-sea transport, energy connectivity, protecting the environment and sustainable tourism – sectors that are bound to play a crucial role in creating jobs and boosting economic growth in the region. The starting point for this is the Maritime Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Seas, adopted by the Commission on 30 November 2012 and now incorporated into the Strategy. European Commissioner for Regional Policy Johannes Hahn commented: “Working together to tackle common challenges and promote shared potential makes great sense. The Adriatic Ionian will be Europe’s third macro-regional strategy. The countries involved should learn lessons from the Baltic Sea and Danube Strategies, namely the importance of focusing on a few priorities with strong political leadership, if it is to have a real impact. In a region that has seen some of Europe’s most serious recent conflicts, the Adriatic Ionian Strategy, with its cooperation between EU and non-EU neighbouring countries, could also play an important part in helping the integration of the Western Balkans into the European Union.” Maria Damanaki, Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries said: “The maritime challenges we face in the Adriatic and Ionian Region are not unique to any one country: from overfishing to pollution, traffic congestion, transport connections and seasonal tourism: the only way that makes sense to tackle these issues is the united, coherent way. Since there is growth potential many of these areas, the action plan for the Adriatic Ionian can help propel the region out the crisis and put its economy back on track.” A pair of countries – one EU Member State and one non-EU country- coordinated the development of each element of the Action Plan: Greece and Montenegro on “Blue Growth”,
Italy and Serbia on “Connecting the Region” (transport and energy networks),
Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina on “Environmental Quality”,
Croatia and Albania on “Sustainable Tourism”.
In addition, capacity building as well as research, innovation and small and medium size business are cross-cutting aspects. Climate change mitigation and adaptation as well as disaster risk management are horizontal principles relevant to all four pillars.
