Gatewatcher appoints Kompingo for UK channel recruitment


Gatewatcher, technological leader in network cyber threat detection, announced today it has appointed specialist security technology accelerator Kompingo as lead distribution partner for the UK. This follows Gatewatcher opening commercial, service, and support operations in the UK and Ireland earlier this year.

Kompingo will lead the implementation of the Gatewatcher reseller partner programme. This will see the appointment of at least five specialist resellers within the first year, representing the Gatewatcher network detection and response (NDR) and cyber threat intelligence (CTI) technology, in a range of vertical markets.

Gatewatcher chose Kompingo on the basis of its deep domain expertise within cybersecurity, combining speed to market with a clear focus on the threats faced by markets including the public sector, critical national infrastructure, telecommunications and healthcare.

Adrian Jones, country manager, UK & Ireland, Gatewatcher commented: “We have already seen the Gatewatcher proposition resonate within the UK market, especially as upcoming regulation such as the Telecommunications Security Act will mandate that enterprises set up a network detection and visibility capability. Our solutions go further and make sense of that data, delivering actionable intelligence and confidence to organisations facing a sea of potential threats. Our NDR solution proposes a real-time, 360 degree view of global networks, both in the cloud and on-premise. To maximise this opportunity, we need a specialist partner that not only understands the technology but also can identify the best reseller partners to implement our solutions. That is what we have found with Kompingo.”

Toby Caton, director, Kompingo added: “As recognised CNI specialists, active throughout Europe, Gatewatcher has an impressive track record and offers a competitive TCO in a market that is undergoing rapid growth. Capitalising on this opportunity demands the appointment of specialist security resellers who understand the NDR proposition, to take this product to market. These professionals will combine the technical excellence of the Gatewatcher solution with proven business benefits and value-added services. Recent reports from the likes of Gartner attest to the scope of this opportunity and we look forward to our partnership with Gatewatcher leading this market in the UK. We are already in discussions with many potential partners and look forward to announcing names in the near future.”
