Automated cybersecurity firm Forescout Technologies has appointed Nextgen as its sole distributor for the Australia-New Zealand as part of its channel expansion plans for the region.

Forescout says Nextgen will align with its regional expansion program, which has seen a channel and sales support team that has grown 150% since January 2022 - and regional channel and alliance director Colin Garro will be joined by the new GSI regional leader for India, Viswanath Singh.

“Forescout is modernising its technology and GTM strategy and has a strong footprint in the ANZ market,” said Nextgen group CEO John Walters.

“This was an important factor in our decision to partner with Forescout as well as its commitment to be ’Channel First’ and invest in building a strong partner ecosystem with NEXTGEN. We applaud Forescout’s leadership in this approach and look forward to helping them build educated, engaged, committed and rewarded partners.”

“We are a ‘channel first’ company seeing huge momentum across the Asia Pacific and Japan,” said Forescout vice president of global channel and alliances Keith Weatherford.

“Choosing key partners with both the depth of knowledge of our platform and regional customer and market understanding will enable us to scale and support customers quickly to meet the demand for our data and insights.”

Forescout says it is the only cybersecurity company with an automated cybersecurity platform that delivers risk management, threat detection and response, and cyber orchestration across assets in the digital terrain, including managed and unmanaged assets - and these capabilities enable customers to see all digital assets and proactively ensure that the attack surface is continuously minimised, allowing organisations to deal with cyberattacks in real-time.

“Organisations across ANZ are seeing unprecedented levels of threat as ransomware attacks have increased over the last 12 months,” said Forescout APJ regional vice president Dave Patnaik.

“We are seeing growth across all verticals in the region – government, industry, healthcare and financial services – with organisations citing automation and visibility as key priorities to mitigate the threats they are facing.”
