Westcon-Comstor to offer intelligence-driven cybersecurity solutions through new partnership with Anomali

Strategic European distribution agreement will provide customers with world-class cybersecurity protection

We have today announced a European distribution agreement with Anomali, the recognised leader in intelligence-driven cybersecurity solutions. Strengthened with this partnership, we will provide our customers with unmatched threat visibility and shorter time to detection. As remote and decentralised workforces become the norm, the new partnership allows us to expand our cybersecurity vendor portfolio, cementing our position as a channel partner of choice.

With over 1,500 organisations as its customers, including many of the Fortune 500 and large government and defence organisations, Anomali has become the leading global threat sharing platform for ISACs (Information Sharing and Analysis Centres), ISAOs (Information Sharing and Analysis Organisations), industry groups, holding companies and other threat intel sharing communities. The company counts a number of high-profile brands as its vendor partners, including CrowdStrike, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Sumo Logic, Broadcom and Infoblox.

Anomali’s solutions – including ThreatStream®, Match™, and Lens™ – enhance threat visibility, automate threat processing and detection, and accelerate threat investigation, response and remediation. Thanks to Anomali’s offering, businesses can operationalise all their threat intelligence under a single platform to enable proactive defence measures, reducing security risks, increasing SOC efficiency by 58% and delivering an estimated ROI of 233% in less than a year.

Jamie Stone, Anomali GM and SVP, EMEA, said: “Anomali is experiencing overwhelming demand across the European region for our intelligence-driven technologies, which are helping customers to identify and neutralise adversaries before they cause enormous damage to their environments and reputations. By partnering with Westcon-Comstor, organisations that recognise the crucial role intelligence plays in their defensive strategies will gain faster and easier access to it.”

Daniel Hurel, Vice President Westcon EMEA – Cyber Security & Next Gen Solutions, commented: “In today’s complex evolving threat landscape, automating threat intelligence at scale is key for businesses to eliminate critical gaps in their threat defences. With the global threat intelligence platform market expected to reach USD 6.6 billion by 2024 growing at 21.4% CAGR, Anomali – as the recognised market leader – is a crucial addition to our Westcon NGS vendor portfolio.”
