Continually Assess and Fortify Cyber-Defenses While Automating Compliance

Dubai, UAE – July 21st, 2013 – StarLink, the region’s trusted security-specialized “true” Value–Added–Distributor (VAD) announced today that it has been signed by RedSeal Networks, Inc. for the GCC region. RedSeal helps customers rapidly improve their security effectiveness and reduce IT risk by providing in–depth security intelligence and ongoing situational awareness into all the network security access and vulnerability exposures across Layer 3 devices via continuous monitoring and compliance automation. The market–leading RedSeal platform enables organizations’ network, security, compliance and audit teams to accelerate regulatory compliance and proactively eliminate the risks associated with cybertheft and cyberesponiage. StarLink will sell, install and support RedSeal products and solutions through its Channel Partners across the GCC to enterprise and government customers.

James Mulhern, Sales Director at RedSeal Networks said “As the threat of cyber attack continues to grow at an alarming rate in the Middle East, the need for innovative and effective IT security distributors is at an all–time high, which is why we have chosen to align with StarLink. Lack of visibility into network security risk hampers even the most conscientious organizations and we believe that StarLink using RedSeal’s advanced network visualization, risk analysis and assessment solutions, will be able to provide a key line of proactive defense in the escalating cyber war in that part of the world.”

“With RedSeal as the latest addition to StarLink’s distribution portfolio, we can now enable customers in the GCC to pinpoint weaknesses and risk through complete end–to–end security visualization, predictive network threat modeling and metrics for situational awareness and compliance gaps.” said Avinash Advani, Director – Business Strategy at StarLink. “StarLink’s vulnerability management story will be complemented by RedSeal’s continuous monitoring solution ensuring that customers can keep policy aligned with end–to–end network risk in response to ongoing change."
