New reseller and distribution agreement provides Japanese enterprises with AI-powered approach to increasing visibility across the attack surface and prioritizing mitigation based on business risk
SAN JOSE, CA — Balbix Inc., provider of the industry’s first system for cybersecurity posture transformation, announced today that it has entered into a reseller and distribution agreement with Tokyo Electron Device Limited (TED). The partnership will provide companies in Japan with access to Balbix’s AI-powered platform for automatic asset and vulnerability discovery, continuous risk assessment and prioritized mitigation actions.
“In today’s modern IT environment, there are practically unlimited combinations of methods by which adversaries can breach an enterprise. As a result, analyzing and improving cybersecurity posture is no longer a human scale problem,” said Gaurav Banga, CEO and Founder of Balbix. “We are very pleased to be working with TED as a strategic channel partner in Japan and bring to their customers a new level of capability to tangibly transform cybersecurity posture.”
The Balbix platform discovers and analyzes customers’ attack surface in real-time to provide 100x more accurate visibility of breach risk versus legacy methods. Customers can automatically discover the full range of devices, applications and users on their network, including previously difficult to track assets like IoT, unmanaged devices and cloud/SaaS services. Balbix automatically assesses the risk of all assets utilizing a highly multidimensional risk model incorporating vulnerability observations across 100+ attack vectors, active threats, business criticality, exposure, and existing security controls. Customers get access to real-time risk heatmaps with deep context and natural language search capabilities which enable them to make high-quality cybersecurity decisions.
“Through our relationship with Balbix, we will be able to offer customers a market-leading platform for enabling dramatic and measurable reduction in breach risk,” said Atsushi Tokushige, President and Representative Director of Tokyo Electron Device. “As a value-added partner with extensive reach across Japan and deep security solutions expertise, we will sell Balbix to enterprise customers across a full range of industry verticals, as well as via managed service providers in an easily consumed, cloud-based service model.”
Balbix is a recognized leader in the cybersecurity market, named by Gartner as a 2018 Cool Vendor in Security and Risk Management and by Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) as a Value Leader. TED is VAR (value added reseller) and distributor in Japan, providing network, storage and security solutions with L1/L2 support including SOC services.
Balbix is the world’s first cybersecurity platform to leverage specialized AI to provide real-time visibility into an organization’s breach risk.
