Westcon-Comstor has announced the signing of a new EMEA distribution agreement with enterprise API security company Noname Security. This strategic relationship will further strengthen Westcon-Comstor’s cloud and DevOps security offerings.
The company said that businesses that utilise APIs need to protect them in real-time, detecting vulnerabilities and misconfigurations before they can be exploited. The Noname API Security Platform allows businesses to mitigate all API security risks by discovering all APIs, data, and metadata, analysing API behaviour, remediating API vulnerabilities, and detecting and preventing API threats.
Daniel Hurel, vice president of Westcon EMEA, explained, “Noname Security, recognised as a technology disrupter and cyber security innovator is a crucial addition to our Westcon NGS vendor portfolio. This vendor will help our partners significantly reduce the API attack surface of their customers. Its proven value in protecting some of the largest businesses by discovering and securing exposed and unprotected APIs makes Noname Security a natural partner for us, and we’re excited about bringing the platform to market in Europe.”
Dirk Marichal, vice president of EMEA at Noname Security, added, “APIs have found their way into most elements of a business’ technology stack for a reason, and that is that they’re effective. Unfortunately, they aren’t as secure as traditional applications and bad actors are taking notice. Our platform helps to mitigate these risks and keep business APIs secure and out of the headlines. Westcon-Comstor is the ideal partner for us to reach new customers, its wide regional reach, value-added services and marketing support are second to none.”
Westcon-Comstor will add Noname Security solutions to its Next Generation Solutions (NGS) practice. NGS is built around four pillars: zero trust access, IoT/OT security, next generation SOC and secure cloud/DevOps. The company said it focuses on solutions rather than specific vendor technologies to help partners identify the solutions best suited to them, their customers, and their long-term strategies.
