NEW YORK, Feb. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Flashpoint, the global leader in Business Risk Intelligence (BRI), today announced a new partnership with emt Distribution, a value-added distributor and vendor representative with a presence in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Philippines, UAE and South Africa. This agreement significantly expands Flashpoint’s already aggressive growth in the Asia Pacific region.

“With emt building out its portfolio of solutions that fall within Cyber Threat Management, we are adding a level of sophistication many channel partners have not had access to in the past,” said Scott Hagenus, CMO of emt Distribution. “This is excellent for businesses and governments who are taking their cyber strategies to new maturity levels and need partners to help them get there. And it’s much needed in today’s threat landscape.”

Flashpoint empowers organizations worldwide with meaningful intelligence and information that combats threats and adversaries. Finished intelligence provided by Flashpoint helps organizations combat cyber threats such as newly evolving malware, zero-day exploits and hacktivism, as well as understand risks to corporate and physical security, damage through fraud and even insider threats.

“This access to illicit online communities is critical for teams to safely access actionable intelligence with the goal of reducing overall business risk. Key use cases that we see greatly benefiting the region are bolstering cybersecurity, combating insider threats, confronting fraud, and addressing supply chain risk, to name a few,” Hagenus said.

Channel partners in OCEANIA and Southeast Asia can now offer this valuable intel to their customers, leveraging emt Distribution’s resources to assist with everything from discovery meetings to demonstrations, pre sales engineering and implementation assistance.

“emt Distribution has long been at the leading edge of providing cyber security solutions to Australia’s private and public sector,” said Brian Costello, SVP Global Sales & Solutions Architecture, Flashpoint. “Flashpoint is excited and optimistic about this new partnership and helping emt further grow its portfolio to address the growing threat of illicit threat actor communities online.”

Flashpoint’s Global Channel Program (GCP) has grown significantly, with value-added resellers (VARs) and value-added distributors (VADs) across North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia Pacific -- all supported by dedicated channel sales managers. In 2018, Flashpoint’s GCP  earned a 5-star rating in CRN’s 2018 Partner Program Guide, and was honored when its head of global partnerships, Ayesha Prakash, was named to CRN’s prestigious 2018 Women of the Channel.
