Noname Security partners with Netpoleon to target API issues

Noname Security, the only company taking a complete, proactive approach to API security, has appointed Netpoleon as its distributor in Australia and New Zealand.

Noname’s recently appointed ANZ Sales Director, Wayne Neich, said: “Netpoleon is a leading security value-added distributor across Asia Pacific with an excellent network of resellers. They are focused, have a highly competent technical team and they take a value-added approach to supporting security vendors and channel partners across ANZ.”

Paul Lim, regional director of ANZ at Netpoleon, commented that Gartner predicts that API attacks will become the most frequent attack vector during 2022. He said API Security is a ‘blind spot’ for end users today and the partner community is filling this gap by adding Noname security’s  API Security Platform to their portfolio, as well as to their large government and enterprise customers.

Neich joined Noname after successful stints with Nutanix, Silver-Peak and Blue Coat.

He said: “With offices and staff throughout Australia and New Zealand, Netpoleon is perfectly positioned to help us build and scale Noname security solution across channel partners. Netpoleon help customers to understand the risk of data loss via their APIs, and consult and demonstrate how API security risk can be mitigated.

“Netpoleon shares our vision and is highly capable and committed to achieving a successful outcome. Educating the partner community and helping them to enhance their security services stack to include API Security Services based on the Noname security platform will be key to our relationship.”

Targeted market sectors include financial services, telcos, retail, healthcare and across many other industries.

Noname sees APIs everywhere, although they are invisible to user organisations. Digital transformation ensures the future of Australia’s large enterprise and government organisations, and these have deployed hundreds and thousands of APIs, many through shadow IT projects. Yet most have no idea how many they have, what sensitive data is flowing through them, or who is accessing that data.

Noname’s partners such as Netpoleon can enable users to regain visibility and control through a complete, proactive API security platform.
