F-Secure appoints Prianto as distributor of corporate endpoint protection products

Buckinghamshire, UK – 30th May 2017: Cyber security company F-Secure today announces the appointment of Prianto Ltd. as a key partner for its UK corporate security business. F-Secure’s award-winning products for the protection of endpoint devices, servers and gateways will now form a strategic core within the Prianto product portfolio.

The distribution agreement includes not only standalone software solutions, but also products which support managed services by partners via the F-Secure Cloud portal.  This brings the ability to provide centrally managed security configuration, management and response to over 700 partners in the Prianto network.

In addition, F-Secure will make its new Cloud Protection for Salesforce product available to users through Prianto. This adds a vital layer of security to check files and links uploaded into Salesforce.

F-Secure’s IT security products are renowned for their consistent high performance in threat detection and prevention, including protection against the latest widespread ransomware attacks. The products are primarily targeted at small and mid-sized companies, from ten to 5,000 users, but they are also used by enterprises.

F-Secure has expanded its future vision of corporate security through the recent launch of the Radar network vulnerability scanner and Rapid Detection Service for advanced threat detection and response service. This, combined with the recent acquisition of UK-based cyber-services provider Digital Assurance, demonstrates the quickening pace of change for F-Secure. The appointment of Prianto as a distributor for its core endpoint protection products is a key step to achieving the delivery of this complete vision for the most effective possible protection of its end-customers’ systems.

Keith Maskell, country sales manager for F-Secure UK and Ireland, commented: “The appointment of Prianto as our distributor in the UK boosts partner support, increases our bandwidth to the channel and expands the F-Secure partner network. This move signals that we are 100 per cent committed to developing our partner channel and to an exciting period of growth in the UK market, based on a new vision.”

The value-added distributor is known for providing strong technical support for a range of IT security software products to its UK-wide partner network, making it an ideal partner for F-Secure. Prianto CEO Yuri Pasea said of the new partnership, “As businesses’ technology estates continue to expand, so do our security offerings to meet the demand. We couple this with strong technical and administrative support to ensure our partners have every means at their disposal to protect end-users. Working with F-Secure allows our partners to use us as a gateway into an advanced IT security product portfolio we believe will meet their security needs.”
