Opti9 | April 01, 2022

Opti9 Technologies LLC of Garden City, NY and Omaha, NE, announces the launch of its hybrid cloud management tool, OptiXdashboard. This single pane of glass platform provides unparalleled insights and orchestration tools for public, private, and hybrid infrastructure including the integration of Opti9's enhanced CloudOps Managed Services offering for Amazon Web Services (AWS). "We've enhanced our dashboard to address the unique needs of managing complex workloads across multiple clouds, services, and platforms. It provides a single interface to define and manage resources, alerts, reporting, service-level-agreements (SLAs), security, and networking across the hybrid cloud landscape. This ensures all systems are delivered and secured in the same manner, all backed by Opti9's managed service offerings. This is the true realization of the hybrid vision behind the formation of Opti9 earlier this year." Sagi Brody, CTO of Opti9 The most notable addition to the dashboard is the inclusion of CloudOps, Opti9's fully managed AWS service. The dashboard now provides full integration for CloudOp's managed security, compliance, networking, FinOps, best practices, asset management, and customizable alarms as they relate to AWS. Additionally, customers can utilize the dashboard's existing management, orchestration, and resilience capabilities. CloudOps is also integrated into the existing granular role-based-access-control, authentication, service help desk, and notification routing for the entire hybrid ecosystem.

Axonius | March 15, 2022

Axonius, the leader in cybersecurity asset management and SaaS management, today announced an expansion of its UK and EMEA partner programme to help systems integrators that specialise in cybersecurity and IT infrastructure with the ability to better manage SaaS security. The company, which has over 150 partners globally, 28% of which are based in EMEA, recently launched Axonius SaaS Management to provide customers with a credible SaaS inventory that offers a comprehensive view into misconfigurations and data security risks. Now, channel partners can also benefit by demonstrating the value of having greater visibility into SaaS apps and how data flows between them. "IT, finance, and security teams are seeking help with cybersecurity asset management and SaaS management to mitigate growing risks, and it is specialists that they are turning to. For our partners, this offers a unique opportunity to solve serious SaaS security challenges and maximise their customers' investments in their solutions." Mark Daggett, vice president of worldwide channels and alliances at Axonius Axonius provides customers with a simple, effective way to untangle the sprawl of modern IT while ensuring their systems are secure. The comprehensive platform integrates with more than 400 security and management solutions to unify all digital assets — from SaaS apps to devices, user accounts, cloud assets, and more — so customers can easily and effectively control complexity across the entire IT environment.
