AVANT becomes first master agent to represent Alert Logic to the Agent Channel community and will accelerate security channel sales worldwide

Dec. 4, 2018 – CHICAGO – AVANT Communications (“AVANT”), a master agent and leader in channel sales enablement of next generation technology solutions, and Alert Logic, the SIEMless Threat Management company, today announced a partnership that will help businesses worldwide achieve the right level of security and compliance coverage across any environment. This partnership represents the first time Alert Logic is being represented to the agent channel community through a master agent.

AVANT’s growing ecosystem of channel sales professionals, known as Trusted Advisors, helps organizations navigate today’s fast-changing IT landscape and make the right technology choices to solve today’s business problems.

The partnership enables AVANT’s extensive network of Trusted Advisors to resell the Alert Logic SIEMless Threat Management offering, which seamlessly connects an award-winning security platform, cutting-edge threat intelligence, and expert defenders to provide the best security and peace of mind for businesses 24/7. The Alert Logic offering includes Security Operations Center (SOC) experts, who monitor customers’ environments 24/7 and provide incident management with guidance on how to address threats. With Alert Logic, organizations can increase their security and compliance capabilities at a lower total cost than investing in multiple point solutions or traditional security outsourcing.

“AVANT prides itself in leading the channel industry with the next wave of disruptive companies changing IT consumption models. The partnership with AVANT is the first of its kind for Alert Logic and will be directly enabled through the agent channel community at a very critical time, when the growing shortage of security talent is driving the highest demand ever for managed security offerings,” said Ian Kieninger, CEO and co-founder of AVANT. “Welcoming Alert Logic to our expanding portfolio of security services will advance our mission to drive the agent community into one of the fastest-growing sectors of the information technology industry. This is going to drive sales for our network of Trusted Advisors now and in the months and years to come.”

Partnering with leading technology distributors like AVANT is a core growth strategy for Alert Logic as the company furthers its mission to provide organizations with the right security and compliance coverage at an optimal cost. AVANT’s fully-enabled and driven network of agents will extend Alert Logic’s reach to help organizations address the evolving threat landscape, expanding compliance risks and resource constraints.

“We partnered with AVANT because of their deep expertise in IT channel enablement, with a strong Trusted Advisor community that understands how to help organizations benefit from higher-value IT solutions,” said Christopher Rajiah, Senior Vice President of Global Alliances and Partnerships, Alert Logic. “AVANT is an exceptional partner to bring Alert Logic to the Agent Channel community. This partnership will power AVANT’s network of Trusted Advisors to help businesses navigate today’s ever-changing threat landscape, while addressing compliance risks and resource constraints.
