Excellent business execution and recognized expertise and innovation capability
It is with great pride that WALLIX has entered the “Challengers” category this year. We believe this is the result of good business strategy execution: regional strengthening and sector development.
To reinforce its regional presence and meet the specific needs of each market, WALLIX has multiplied the number of partnership contracts with major distributors—such as Arrow in the US and Tech Data in the DACH region—as well as with more than forty value-added resellers in MEA. WALLIX’s Business Partner Program currently counts 180 partners, with 739 individuals certified on WALLIX solutions, representing a total of more than 1,300 customers.
To accelerate its sector development, in addition to integrating partners specialized in OT (Operation Technology) and IT service providers (in particular Managed Security Service Providers) into the Business Partner Program, WALLIX has developed alliances with strategic partners including Fives and Schneider Electric, who share the idea that cybersecurity must be a standard in Industry 4.0 by integrating WALLIX Inside—all WALLIX technologies now available “by design”—into their solutions. This gives WALLIX a leading position in the emerging cybersecurity “by design” market in Industry 4.0.
WALLIX has proven how its privileged account management offerings meet the specific needs of each sector—industry, healthcare, MSSPs—in terms of access security and regulatory compliance. Concerning enterprise accounts, WALLIX’s price/product positioning has been proven to match that of the other players in the market.
“We believe being a “Challenger” in the Gartner Magic Quadrant is a true mark of appreciation for WALLIX regarding our expertise and our ability to remain keenly tuned to the needs of the market. It is also the result of the commitment of WALLIX’s teams over the last years to ensure unparalleled quality of service, develop products at the cutting edge of technology, and further support our partners in the mastery and promotion of our solutions.” adds Jean-Noël de Galzain, founder & CEO of WALLIX.
