bluedog disrupts security monitoring market, putting enterprise-level services within reach of all organisations, including small and medium businesses

Adelaide, Australia & Singapore – 16 October 2020: Cybersecurity specialist, emt Distribution, today announced that UK-based bluedog Security Monitoring – which aims to make monitoring services accessible to businesses of all sizes – has expanded its reach to include Australia, New Zealand and Asia Pacific with a new distribution agreement.

emt Distribution, a leading value-added distributor, offers cybersecurity solutions that address the Australian Signals Directorate’s top four mitigation strategies – dubbed Catch, Patch and Match – as well as the broader strategies in the Australian Government’s Information Security Manual (ISM).

bluedog, which is headquartered in London with a security operations centre in Manila, is disrupting the market for security monitoring. The company provides a level of network protection typically only afforded by large corporations, putting it within reach of all organisations. This includes offering high quality technology, support and service to small and medium businesses (SMBs), helping protect them from cyber threats.

emt’s Adelaide and Singapore offices now offer the full range of bluedog’s solutions to channel partners, MSPs and MSSPs. They include the popular bluedog Microsoft® Office 365™ Monitoring, a low cost work-from-home solution that allows organisations with remote workers to protect their data – the only one of its type backed by a live security team.

Meanwhile, the bluedog virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) service provides access to an experienced security professional to assess risk and ensure compliance with standards; while the managed detection and response (MDR) service allows even small organisations to have the reassurance of 24-hour monitoring.

“Fixing incidents after they have happened is notoriously difficult and expensive, and can be massively disruptive to organisations with limited cybersecurity resources,” said Shane Mahney, General Manager of emt Distribution. “Organisations need a collaborative range of systems and support services to fight cyber attackers effectively. bluedog provides a robust stack of preventive solutions to fill the gaps many organisations have.” 

The new partnership with emt Distribution further extends bluedog’s distribution network which already covers Europe, the Middle East, India, Malaysia and the Philippines.

“Australia, New Zealand and Asia Pacific are key markets for bluedog,” said Paul Lomax, CEO of bluedog. “emt Distribution has a highly experienced team with a thorough understanding of the needs of users in the region. This new partnership is an important step in building our worldwide network.”

“emt Distribution is delighted to add bluedog’s advanced network security solutions to our cybersecurity portfolio,” said Richard Rundle, CEO of emt Distribution. “bluedog’s entry into the region gives our channel partners and their customers access to a new level of cybersecurity protection with enterprise-grade sophistication at an accessible price point.”
