Exclusive Group has been tasked by security vendor JASK to lead its global channel assault, starting in the Benelux and Nordics regions. JASK sells an Autonomous Security Operations Center (ASOC) platform. More countries are expected to be rolled out in the near future, with the distribution agreement coming on the heels of the appointment of Jessica Couto as JASK vice president of worldwide channels to “broaden and deepen partner commitment”.
Speaking earlier in the year at a NetEvents technology symposium in San Jose, California, Greg Fitzgerald, chief marketing officer at JASK, told IT Europa: “Ignition will be used to spread the word in the UK channel and Exclusive will be used on a pan-European basis to get our solution into every EMEA market. Exclusive also have a foothold through recent acquisition in the US, so will be used there to help us build up our business.”
The JASK ASOC platform is an artificial intelligence- and machine learning-based security information event management (SIEM) system for security personnel. The platform automates the collection, normalisation, correlation and analysis of alerts, helping security operations centre analysts focus on the highest-priority threats through JASK Insights.
This helps streamline investigations and delivers faster, real-time responses, said JASK. The platform is cloud-based, open and extensible, enabling customers to build on their current investments.
Couto said: “We are committed to working with Exclusive Group for rapid expansion of our next generation SOC technology via their strong channel network to enterprises across the globe.”
Andy Travers, SVP worldwide sales and marketing at Exclusive Group, said: “The use of artificial intelligence for the automation of data in the SOC is offering much-needed relief to overwhelmed SOC analysts, and is helping organisations respond more rapidly to threats.
“The JASK platform offers a revolution in security operations, bringing exciting new capabilities to our portfolio and opening up new incremental revenue opportunities for our partners.”
US-headquartered JASK was founded in 2016, and is backed by Battery Ventures, Dell Technology Ventures, TenEleven Venture Partners, Draper Nexus, NightDragon Security and Vertical Venture Partners.
