Strategic Partnership to help organizations secure their business against an ever-increasing threat landscape and attacks on trust


Dubai, United Arab Emirates, December 24, 2013 - (PressReleasePoint) - StarLink, the region’s trusted security-specialized “true” Value-Added-Distributor (VAD), announced today its appointment by Venafi as its Strategic Distributor for the Middle East, Turkey and Africa. StarLink will sell Venafi products and solutions through its Channel Partners across the Middle East, Turkey and Africa to its enterprise and government customers.

Threats and attacks are increasing and IT security executives face new challenges with trust exploits. While organizations adopt cloud computing and allow employee-owned devices onto the network, the challenge of securing company data increases exponentially. Cybercriminals have successfully used unsecured cryptographic keys and digital certificates to breach trust in order to steal valuable intellectual property and classified information.

"For too long organizations have blindly trusted keys and certificates and have little visibility into their threat risk exposure," said Gregory Webb, Venafi Vice President of Marketing. "Malicious actors have taken note of this blind trust, and use it nefariously against organizations who have no ability to detect anomalies or to respond to attacks on trust. The results are clear: terabytes of valuable information and IP are being pilfered from them before the compromise is even detected. We are excited to partner with StarLink to help organizations in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa respond to and remediate these trust-based attacks,” he added.

Avinash Advani, Director Business Strategy, StarLink said “The millions of dollars companies spend on perimeter-based security solutions every year are unfortunately not solving the problem of compromised keys and certificates, which provide cyber-criminals unfettered trusted access and status. With Venafi, we can now empower enterprises across the regions we cover to reduce the risk of malicious attacks on trust with complete visibility into key and certificate inventories and end-to-end automation of security and control processes.”StarLink, the region’s trusted security-specialized “true” Value-Added-Distributor (VAD), announced today its appointment by Venafi as its Strategic Distributor for the Middle East, Turkey and Africa. StarLink will sell Venafi products and solutions through its Channel Partners across the Middle East, Turkey and Africa to its enterprise and government customers.
