Specialized Security VAD to distribute and promote Acunetix Vulnerability Scanning software

London, UK – September 2016 – Acunetix, the pioneer in web application security, has signed a distribution agreement with Bulwark Technologies. Under this agreement, Bulwark’s channel partners will offer the vendor’s web application security solutions to enterprise customers across the Middle East.

As cyber security continues to hit the headlines, companies of all sizes can expect to be subject to scrutiny and therefore securing their website and web applications should be a priority. A recent study by Acunetix found that over 55% of websites scanned over a 12 month period contained high-severity vulnerabilities that could risk not only brand and reputational damage, but data breaches and major fines associated with these. With web application vulnerabilities increasingly posing serious threats to organizations’ overall security posture, now is the time for organizations to make application-level security not only a priority, but a fundamental requirement.

As a specialized distributor in the area of cyber security, Bulwark will assist Acunetix to build and grow the vendor’s success story in the region through a strong channel network and a complete focus on partner enablement. Bulwark will organize sales and technical training sessions along with various marketing initiatives to boost sales in the Middle East. Bulwark will also be providing technical support to the channel community through its team of technical experts.

Mr. Jose Thomas Menacherry, Managing Director, Bulwark Technologies, said, “Bulwark is a focused and specialized Distributor in the cybersecurity area. There is a perfect synergy between our companies. The addition of Acunetix in our product portfolio complements our current offering of security solutions and would provide Bulwark with new avenues for growth and revenue opportunities for both of us.’’

Ms. Christina Nicole Woodward, VP Sales, Acunetix announced, “Acunetix technologies are second-to-none, providing cutting-edge vulnerability detection and the only product on the market able to detect out-of-band vulnerabilities automatically. We are confident that by partnering with Bulwark we will continue to increase awareness in the Middle Eastern region.. Bulwark consists of an impressive portfolio of customers covering different verticals in the region, has a wide network of partners and houses a competent team of technical, sales and marketing experts. All these attributes make Bulwark a valued partner.’’
