DTEX Systems | December 08, 2022

DTEX Systems, the Workforce Cyber Intelligence & Security Company, today announced the launch of the DTEX Systems Global Partner Program. The program enables referral partners, value-added resellers, consultants, and managed security services providers (MSSPs) with special pricing, marketing resources, and sales support to increase insider risk revenue and margins through endpoint upsell opportunities. Whether it’s supporting an insider threat management strategy, developing zero trust data loss prevention solutions, or protecting their remote workforce, the DTEX Global Partner Program is designed to multiply the value of a customer’s existing cybersecurity investment. The program empowers and supports partners through the integration of DTEX’s InTERCEPT and PULSE platforms with existing SIEM, SOAR, and EDR tools and access to its full portfolio of world-class consulting services. “The need for insider risk management has never been more acute or challenging for customers, with corporate visibility regressing as operations and employees become decentralized,” says Brian Stoner, Vice President of Worldwide Channel and Alliances of DTEX Systems. “Our goal is to achieve 100% channel participation on every deal. This investment further accelerates DTEX’s mission of helping organizations better understand the human element impacting their security risk posture to develop more effective and efficient insider threat management programs without infringing on employee privacy.” The opportunity to partner with DTEX is based on the innovative technology offered through DTEX Workforce Cyber Intelligence & Security platforms: Next-Generation Insider Threat Solution—DTEX InTERCEPT provides correlation across all insider threat vectors providing superior visibility to any other insider threat solution available today.

DTEX Systems has 100 existing partners worldwide who will be participating in the new program including: Carahsoft Consortium CrowdStrike Deloitte Australia GuidePoint Security Optiv Splunk A top priority for the program includes helping partners move away from product/alert-focused security and towards understanding the risk of individuals.

Striving to achieve 100% channel participation on every deal, partners will be rewarded with generous margins based on their level of involvement in pursuing new business. “A major factor in our decision to partner with DTEX was its ability to fill a significant void in the market that’s not currently addressed by any other security technology or vendors,” says Daniel Waters, Director of Cyber Strategy and Transformation at Optiv Security. “With the help of DTEX’s Workforce Cyber Intelligence and Security solution, we can achieve our overarching goals of informing, driving and elevating our customers’ insider risk capabilities in today’s increasingly complex and vulnerable world. As organizations and executives continue to underestimate the widespread impact of insider threats, we are excited to strengthen our partnership with DTEX to close significant cybersecurity knowledge gaps. The net client impact is simple, our partnership drives modernized program-driven capabilities and material risk-return beyond traditional insider threat paradigms, into a cross-organizational value chain that also protects investments, brand, reputation, and the ability to attract talent.” “DTEX’s impressive network of technology alliances and integrations presented a significant value-add to Consortium Networks,” says Larry Pfeifer, Founder and Chief Disrupter of Consortium Networks. “DTEX’s impressive network of technology alliances and integrations presented a significant value-add to Consortium Networks,” says Larry Pfeifer, Founder and Chief Disrupter of Consortium Networks. “Through this partnership, our customers can seamlessly deploy DTEX InTERCEPT Zero Trust DLP capabilities within the CrowdStrike Falcon platform to gain real-time, contextual visibility into human activity and data usage telemetry.” The unveiling of this program comes on the heels of the official launch of DTEX’s new Global Partner Portal.
