High Wire Networks on Tuesday announced an agreement for the distribution of its Overwatch Managed Security solution through SYNNEX Corp.’s partner network. Chicago-based High Wire Networks is a leading global technical field, professional and cybersecurity services company. The Synnex network consists of more than 25,000 IT solution providers.

The alliance lets Synnex resellers deliver holistic security services to underserved small and medium businesses (SMBs). SMBs’ IT systems often lack adequate protection. As a result, they are popular targets for cyberattacks.

Joe Pittillo, is vice president of services for Synnex.“While SMBs represent 60% of the addressable market for security solutions, they are often underserved because of smaller budgets,” he said. “Synnex has worked with High Wire Networks to create security solution packages for the SMB market that provide an enterprise-level security operations center (SOC) as a service solution at an affordable, flat-rate price.”

Overwatch 24/7 Solution

Synnex partners now have access to the entire Overwatch Managed Security Platform as a Service. This includes the flagship Overwatch 24/7 solution. It combines the Overwatch 24/7 SOC with X Detection & Response (XDR) technology to effectively cut through the noise and drill down on real threats. The Overwatch platform also includes Overwatch Aware user security training, Intelligent Video Surveillance (iVS) and more.

“High Wire Networks currently goes to market exclusively through the indirect channel, so we’re excited for the opportunity to work with one of the top distributors in the Americas to enable thousands of IT solution providers to help their SMB customers protect themselves from increasing cyberthreats,” said Joe Barnas, channel sales manager, security, for High Wire Networks.

Synnex managed security services experts work closely with High Wire Networks. They provide sales, technical, and back-end support to Synnex resellers and their customers.

In December, High Wire Networks hired industry veteran Charles Hughes as chief operating officer. He and other members of the leadership team focus on the company’s growth objectives.
