SlashNext Accelerates Market Traction with 100% Business Fulfilled Through The Channel

PLEASANTON, Calif., Dec. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SlashNext, a provider of fourth-generation Internet security solutions, today announced its commitment to 100% channel fulfillment through 11 channel sales partners, including SHI International Corp., one of North America's top 10 largest IT solutions providers.

The new partnership agreement will allow SHI customers better access to the SlashNext Internet Access Protection System. The SlashNext system goes beyond previous generations, including network-based, signature-based and sandbox-based technologies by deploying human-like intelligence and cognitive thinking to stop Internet attacks that target unsuspecting employees as their entry points.

"We are very selective about the Internet security solutions we put in front of our customers. We look for offerings that can augment existing architectures with powerful new capabilities without disrupting what is working or adding more work for the IT administrator," said Ed McNamara, Senior Director of Communications and Marketing, SHI International. "We are thrilled to partner with SlashNext and take their unique solution to market."

"In this age of evolving threats, no company can defend itself alone. American Showa works with SHI as strategic partner because they can bring security providers that work as hard to prevent security issues as those wishing to commit one," said Sean Henry, Senior MIS Manager at American Showa. "We are deploying SlashNext as an additional layer of protection against cross-platform social engineering and phishing, malware, exploits and callback attacks. They represent the outside-of-the-box and next-level thinking that SHI consistently highlights that we need in an ever-morphing threat landscape."

SlashNext has chosen a focused channel sales strategy to jumpstart rapid growth based on its low friction sales cycle, with add-on services that partners can deliver, including penetration testing, security gap analysis, analysis and decision support, and remediation. In addition, the copany offers a full set of threat intelligence services that can be resold by channel partners, along with funds for joint marketing and field activities.

"We are honored to partner with SHI. Their customers are among the most security-conscious and will quickly understand why SlashNext is different. Preventing accidental workforce behaviors that open the door to cyberattacks is not something you can train employees about – and if there is a technology that can act like an employee but think like a hacker, why not get it to work for you?" said Seamus Meagher, Vice President of Business Development/Channels at SlashNext.

The SlashNext solution can be fully deployed within just 20 minutes, and it serves as an ideal complement to existing sandbox, next-gen firewall and anti-virus solutions.

The SlashNext channel program is being launched nationwide in December. For more information, visit:
