ActZero, a cybersecurity startup whose AI-driven managed detection and response (MDR) platform makes best-in-class security accessible for businesses of all sizes, announced a strategic partnership with Tech Data, one of the world’s largest technology distributors and solutions aggregators. Together, ActZero and Tech Data aim to help organisations accurately detect, learn from, and prevent emerging security threats.
The ActZero platform combines next-generation antivirus protection, endpoint detection and response (EDR), and 24/7 automated and managed threat hunting capabilities, enabled by a purpose-built AI engine, delivered through its single, cost-effective solution. As a result, ActZero detects and prevents all types of threats, from commodity malware to sophisticated attacks, all in sub-second responses.
The partnership will accelerate adoption of ActZero’s novel security platform as part of the Tech Data edge-to-cloud portfolio and broaden access to superior security for small and mid-size businesses through the IT distributor and solutions aggregator’s global footprint. In addition, this scale helps unlock powerful network effects that enrich ActZero’s machine learning engines and improve its ability to detect and contain threats.
“We’re excited to roll out this partnership,” said John Nurczynski, co-founder and Head of the Summit partnership program at ActZero. “Our goal is to democratize cybersecurity for small and mid-size businesses, and Tech Data’s well known distribution platform and industry-leading security expertise unlocks the ability to get ActZero’s superior approach in the hands of more companies.”
“With year-over-year cybercrime statistics increasing exponentially, making smart investments in security solutions is a no-brainer for businesses grappling with how to handle malware, ransomware and proliferating cyber threats,” said Tracy Holtz, vice president of security solutions at Tech Data. “Adding cybersecurity innovators like ActZero to our portfolio of solutions arms Tech Data customers with critical online security tools so the businesses they serve – especially small and mid-sized companies – are equipped to protect from edge to cloud.”
