Cyber attacks recovery platform Salvador Technologies has ramped up its European channels reach and is looking to recruit more partners too.
Salvador says it has recently recruited a number of VARs and system integration firms in France, Italy, Poland, Turkey and the UK, and is in the process of onboarding additional channel partners in Germany and Spain.
New partners are using the company’s air-gapped, cyber attack recovery platform to ensure the operational continuity of their critical infrastructure and industrial enterprise customers.
As Europe experiences an upsurge in ransomware threats and an increasingly complex geo-political situation, channel partners are applying the technology for multiple scenarios, including rapid recovery from cyber attacks and IT failures, as well as for patching.
“SolutionsPT have been delivering OT (operational technology)-focused solutions to multiple organisations in government and critical infrastructure for 37 years, which means we understand the unique challenges faced by OT customers when keeping their business operations running,” said Chris Wright, cyber security executive at SolutionsPT in the United Kingdom.
“With an increased need to secure previously air-gapped infrastructure against malware or failure, Salvador Technologies fills a growing market need to keep critical systems backed up and deal with the aftermath of inevitable attacks in a way that recovery is fast, cost-effective and has absolute minimal downtime.”
The platform consists of three layers of defence: a cyber recovery unit (CRU) that is connected to a specific computer, HMI (human machine interface – a screen) or server through a USB port; a software agent that is installed locally in order to activate the CRU; and a monitoring application interface that provides full visibility of the status of each workstation.
“The idea is so simple that it’s almost genius: after an attack, you just need to shut down the computer, boot from the device and then you are up and running again within minutes,” said Dariusz Nowak, CEO at Salvador partner Pace Poland. “We have already run a number of successful PoCs (proof-of-concepts) with industrial and manufacturing customers and we are receiving strong feedback in additional verticals, including international OT consultants, automotive and food and beverage.”
“The ongoing threats to OT infrastructure are continually expanding the market potential for our recovery platform, and creating new market opportunities for our channel partners to improve the operational continuity of critical infrastructure operators and industrial enterprises in their local markets,” said Alex Yevtushenko, CEO of Salvador Technologies.
“We have strong expectations for working closely with our new channel partners in Europe and engaging additional channel partners in the coming months in more countries across Europe, as well as new markets in the US.”
Salvador is inviting potential channel partners across Europe to schedule a demo and discuss partnership opportunities.
