Bot detection and mitigation specialist Netacea has struck a new partnership agreement with AVANT, a platform for IT decision-making and funding.
The partnership will see Avant offer its network of advisors with Netacea’s bot management offering, giving them a way to combat the growing security threats.
As an AVANT supplier, Netacea will also join the company’s Security Council, the firm said.
“With Netacea, Trusted Advisors can protect their websites, mobile apps and APIs from automated threats using its bot management Intent Analytics engine, decreasing the potential of falling victim to bad actors and their illegal schemes,” said Shane McNamara EVP of operations & engineering at AVANT.
According to Kirk Horton, vice president of channels and partners, who leads Netacea’s NetElite Partner Program, which launched in North America in January this year, partners like AVANT are essential to its global growth strategy.
“We’re confident that through this new partnership, Trusted Advisors will be able to develop and offer a more effective approach to fighting the growing security threats posed by bots,” added Horton.
Netacea says its agentless approach to bot management combines web log analysis with real-time and historic trends to analyse user behaviour and determine intent. Its customers include William Hill, Sony and Pets at Home.
