Leading Log and Security Event Management Vendor Continues AsiaPac Growth with new distributor Data World Computer & Communication Ltd
Hong Kong, March 16, 2010 – LogRhythm, the company that makes log data useful, has established a new distribution partnership with Data World Computer & Communication Ltd (Data World C&C) in Hong Kong. The new agreement will see Data World C&C become LogRhythm’s value-add partner of choice for the company’s continued expansion into the Asia-Pacific market for enterprise-class log and security event management solutions. Data World C&C boasts more than 20 years’ experience as a value-add distributor of leading brand IT products in Hong Kong and the company’s knowledge and expertise make it an ideal partner for LogRhythm. Data World C&C also offers IT consultancy services and engineers to complement LogRhythm’s own expertise.
The new partnership is testimony to LogRhythm’s rapid expansion in the Asia-Pacific marketplace, and arrives soon after LogRhythm put in place a similar strategic agreement with DMX Technologies Sdn Bhd in Malaysia. The new deal also further highlights LogRhythm’s commitment to the Asia-Pacific region following the establishment of a LogRhythm operation in Hong Kong in mid-2009.
Hong Kong represents a key strategic location for expansion into the Asia-Pacific market for next generation security information and event management (SIEM) solutions. By agreeing the partnership with LogRhythm, Data World C&C has ensured that it can offer customers the very latest, market-leading SIEM solution. As a vendor, LogRhythm has been recognised by Gartner Inc as being in the ‘Visionaries’ category of its SIEM Magic Quadrant solution evaluation reports for the past three years. LogRhythm was also recently named 2010 Innovator of the year for SIEM by SC Magazine, one of the world’s leading security publications.
David Cheng, general manager, LogRhythm Asia Pacific, said, “We are of course delighted to agree such a significant strategic partnership in Hong Kong with one of the region’s best-known value-add distributors. Forward-thinking companies in Hong Kong are rapidly seeing the importance of SIEM technology to their IT security operations and processes. We were seeking a first-rate distribution partner to help continue LogRhythm’s fast expansion into this marketplace and we believe that we have found it with Data World C&C. Our expertise and market-leading products will be perfectly complemented by their progressive business approach.”
Henry Ng, business unit director of Data World C&C Hong Kong, commented, “At Data World C&C we are always looking to offer the very highest quality IT products and solutions to customers so the agreement with LogRhythm seemed like a natural fit. We are always looking to stay ahead of the curve with our proposition and one of the main ways we achieve this is by strategic partnerships with vendors of market-leading solutions. We look forward to a very fruitful relationship with LogRhythm moving forward.”
