Wedge’s Absolute Real-time Protection (WedgeARP™) Available on Ingram Micro Cloud Market Place to Secure the Cloud Connected World
CALGARY & TORONTO, Canada – May 25th, 2020 – Wedge Networks, a global leader in Orchestrated Real-time Threat Prevention, today announced a strategic agreement with Ingram Micro Cloud to offer Wedge Absolute Real-time Protection™ (WedgeARP™) on Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace that enables effective, real-time threat prevention solutions for any Cloud-connected computing devices from the Microsoft Azure Cloud.
WedgeARP™ provides network-based, real-time threat protection for all types of endpoints in different types of networks (mobile data, 5G, SD-WAN, SASE, and smart-city/IIoT). WedgeARP™ has the deepest visibility of network data in the industry, possessing an unmatched ability to defend against malicious attacks that are undetectable with shallow inspection techniques. With an embedded deep learning AI engine, WedgeARP™ can detect never-before-seen malware in milliseconds. Running on an orchestrated threat management platform, it is a novel approach that provides real-time large-scale security implementations with effective threat management services.
“Ingram Micro Cloud is an important go-to-market partner for Wedge Networks in our pursuit to implement real-time threat prevention for the cloud connected world,” remarked Dr. Hongwen Zhang, Wedge Networks, CEO & CTO. “With a world quickly moving towards working from home, the old methods of ‘Detect and Remediate’ are failing to meet security challenges. ‘Real-time threat prevention’ is becoming the rallying cry for the cyber security industry that has been long struggling to keep up with the expanding security gap. WedgeARP™ is a purposely built solution to address this need. We are impressed with the edge networking and virtual WAN architectures of the Microsoft Azure. This agreement will allow WedgeARP™ to be accessible from Azure Cloud to partners and customers worldwide.”
Wedge will offer three packaged solutions in the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace to allow governments and businesses to achieve secure computing and compliance for work-from-home workers and branch offices. Based on the WedgeARP™ platform, these solutions are: WedgeARP™ Secure Home Office; WedgeARP™ Secure Remote Office, and WedgeARP™ Secure Azure Virtual WAN. With Wedge’s patented Deep Content Inspection algorithms for real-time threat prevention, and the integrated deep learning artificial neural networks for new malware detection, these solutions allow customers to enforce real-time threat prevention from the ever-expanding edge of their IT infrastructure to their software defined cloud networks in Microsoft Azure. These solutions provide a set of comprehensive tools for Wedge’s MSSP and reseller partners in the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) market, and further demonstrate Wedge’s commitment to its mission of Securing the Cloud Connected World.
The WedgeARP™ Secure Home Office is available for early access on Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace for selected reseller partners and their customers on June 2nd, 2020, with GA in July 2020. Both WedgeARP™ Secure Remote Office, and WedgeARP™ Secure Azure Virtual WAN will be available for early access in July 2020.
“Wedge Networks is a front runner in our Comet Competition for Canadian ISVs. Their Absolute Real-time Protection™ platform and their disruptive real-time advanced threat prevention approach to cyber security is very impressive,” said Tim Fitzgerald, Vice President, Cloud Channel Sales North America at Ingram Micro Cloud. “With more than 200,000 customers in over 160 countries around the world, Ingram Micro Cloud is excited that the WedgeARP™-based solutions will offer an easy-to-implement cyber security platform.”
“The SASE market is emerging as a key segment in network security. The ability to rapidly roll out security services and deliver them as and when needed while maintaining performance is key challenge for this nascent market segment. Solutions like Wedge Networks’ that can combine deep content inspection with advanced machine learning for real-time threat prevention represents how many security services will be delivered from the cloud core to the network edge,” states Roy Chua, Founder and Principal at AvidThink and co-founder of SDxCentral. “This partnership with Ingram Micro represents the combination of market-leading product distribution, service SLA, and effective real-time threat prevention.
