Global cybersecurity company Kaspersky has announced the appointment of Asia Pacific’s leading distributor of cloud solutions and services, rhipe as its MSP distributor in Southeast Asia (SEA).
Founded in 2003, rhipe provides licensing, business development and knowledge services that support services providers, system integrators and software vendors accelerate the adoption of the cloud by end customers. rhipe is continuing to expand its presence in SEA, as well as bringing new and innovative cloud products to existing partners and markets.
“Outsourcing cybersecurity is fast becoming a chosen road for Southeast Asia’s SMBs and enterprises alike to effectively secure their digitalisation efforts. We are excited to partner with rhipe to boost our MSP business in the region. Through this partnership, we expect to provide more partners with a seamless cloud business ecosystem, improved profitability as well as value-added IT security offerings and exceptional service, to help them beat the competition in our current crowded MSP market,” says Yeo Siang Tiong, General Manager for Southeast Asia at Kaspersky.
“Combining the extensive reach and technical expertise of rhipe with our solid reputation and quality enterprise solutions, we see this as a major step to help guard more businesses against cybercriminals,” he adds.
Kaspersky’s deep threat intelligence and security expertise is constantly transforming into innovative security solutions and services to protect businesses, critical infrastructure, governments and consumers around the globe. Kaspersky’s IT security solutions have received multiple awards, with 400+ million users and 250k corporate clients receiving protection that is effective, usable and accessible. By developing world-leading security, Kaspersky enables customers stay one step ahead of potential threats.
Dominic O’Hanlon, CEO of rhipe said, “As one of the leading endpoint security vendors, Kaspersky continues to improve their market position with a comprehensive security portfolio of endpoint protection solutions. The addition of Kaspersky to the rhipe vendor portfolio helps us expand the security solutions we offer to our partners and their end customers. We are pleased to welcome Kaspersky to rhipe.”
Kaspersky’s commitment to advanced technology has earned the company its title as the ‘Leader’ in endpoint protection by the ‘big three’ analyst agencies (Gartner, IDC and Forrester). While endpoint security has remained the core of their business for over 20 years, Kaspersky continues to look ahead in the enterprise market, particularly in the non-endpoint security area.
Kaspersky joins other vendors that have recently joined the rhipe portfolio, including Zoom, Access4, Runecast, Octopus Cloud, AvePoint, eset, Nerdio and usecure.
