Viatel Technology Group has today released details of its strategic partnership with ArmorPoint, LLC, a leading global MSSP (managed security service provider). Viatel, a market-leading provider of cloud, security, networking solutions and digital services will deliver ArmorPoint’s best-in-class managed cybersecurity solutions into the European market.
This partnership uniquely positions Viatel as the most comprehensive cybersecurity, cloud, connectivity and digital transformation solutions provider in Ireland, with a growing footprint of international customers at home and overseas.
CTO, Eilish O’Connor, explains how Viatel Technology Group’s search for a cybersecurity partner led the company to ArmorPoint. “As we learned more about the ArmorPoint offering, it quickly became apparent that it addressed many of the blind spots left exposed by other solutions. We realised that this was something we wanted for ourselves and for our customers.”
“Choosing a cybersecurity partner is the ultimate trust exercise. The threats are very real, the losses are potentially ruinous and very few organisations have the skills or resources to manage this in-house. Viatel Technology Group partnered with ArmorPoint for our own security almost 12 months ago. We have in-depth insight into the potential threats that have been detected and averted. We have established ArmorPoint’s European base right here in Dublin in our data centres and we are excited to bring this comprehensive cybersecurity offering to market.”
Niall Tuohy, Security Product Manager with Viatel Technology Group, adds, “Cybersecurity is becoming more complex. The threats get more malicious and pervasive with each passing day. Organisations are struggling to keep up with the challenge of ongoing threat management. ArmorPoint’s mission is to simplify cybersecurity management once and for all and we know that this is what businesses want more than anything else.”
“Viatel’s Managed Security powered by ArmorPoint is the sole security solution any organisation needs. The beauty is in the simplicity and the peace of mind delivered. Every alert, threat, event, every piece of data across the customer network is collected, correlated and unified under a single pane of glass and managed by seasoned, certified security experts.”
David Trapp, CEO of ArmorPoint, adds, “Selecting the right partner for the next exciting step on our global journey was a crucial decision. We couldn’t be more pleased to partner with Viatel Technology Group. We have been impressed by the breadth of Viatel’s capabilities and the calibre of their team. Working together we will protect organisations, enhance customer experience and fuel the next stage of growth for both organisations.”
Earlier this year, Viatel Technology Group announced the creation of 50 new jobs as it prepared to expand its cybersecurity offering. The group continues to grow its industry leading capabilities, recently announcing the acquisition of Sungard Availability’s Irish cloud business and being named ICT Company of the Year at the Chamber Ireland InBUSINESS Awards.
