Cloud-native New-Scale SIEM and advanced threat detection, investigation and response (TDIR) capabilities now available to more New Zealand organizations


Exabeam, a global cybersecurity leader and creator of New-Scale SIEM™ for advancing security operations, today announced it has signed a distribution partnership with Chillisoft, a specialist cybersecurity distributor, representing industry-leading vendors in New Zealand, Australia, and throughout the South Pacific.


“We are delighted to announce that Chillisoft New Zealand has partnered with Exabeam as our esteemed distribution partner. With their strong market presence and extensive expertise, we are confident that this collaboration will enable us to expand our reach and provide exceptional cybersecurity solutions to businesses across New Zealand. Together, Chillisoft and Exabeam are poised to deliver unparalleled value and protection against modern-day threats,” said Sean Abbott, Director, Channels and Alliances, APAC, Exabeam.


In partnership with Chillisoft, Exabeam can help solve integration-related cybersecurity challenges faced by New Zealand customers today giving them the ability to integrate enterprise security controls and on-premises, cloud-native and mobile solutions, as well as work more easily with all cloud service providers. Exabeam utilizes machine learning to understand normal user and entity behavior, even as normal keeps changing, helping organizations to hone in on security incidents that are the most urgent across an ever-evolving insider threat landscape.


With a deep understanding of cybersecurity and a commitment to excellence, Chillisoft will play a vital role in delivering New-Scale SIEM — a combination of cloud-scale security log management, powerful behavior analytics, and an automated investigation experience with advanced TDIR capabilities — to organizations in New Zealand. Chillisoft delivers world-class technical enablement, training and certification for New Zealand companies turning to managed service partners as their outsourced security operations centers (SOCs). The company also works with several other XDR Alliance partners, including Netskope and Mimecast.


Chillisoft’s CEO, Alex Teh said, “Chillisoft is delighted to be adding a Gartner leading SIEM vendor to our award-winning portfolio. Exabeam’s international relationships and strong technical integration with vendors like Netskope and Mimecast played an important role in our decision to partner with Exabeam in New Zealand. In our opinion, the SIEM has never been more important as companies look to get better visibility of cyberattacks and take AI-based automation and orchestrated action to remediate against threats and attacks.”


To kick start the partnership in New Zealand, Exabeam will be participating in a partner launch roadshow in August throughout Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch. To further showcase the partnership, Exabeam will be sponsoring Chillisoft’s cybersecurity event CybersecCon, which will be held in Auckland on Thursday, September 14 at The Hilton Hotel.
