SNARE Alliance Channel Partners

The Background:  The market need for Secure Information & Event Monitoring (SIEM) Solutions is exploding in response to the rise of corporate and government security breaches. All organization must now be concerned with the security of their financial information, customer records and other proprietary information.  In addition to the growing market, SNARE Enterprise Agents have some unique market stimulants.

The Market Opportunity:  SNARE for Windows Open Source Agents are the most widely used event logging agent in the world, because they are free. But organizations are now moving to Windows 2012 and many need to be PCI, HIPAA, FISMA and SOX compliant. Those organizations will need to upgrade from SNARE Open Source to SNARE Enterprise Agents to address those issues. VARs can sell SNARE Enterprise Agents into their customers’ existing SIEM installations, knowing that Enterprise Agents are universally compatible with all 3rd party SIEMS.   SNARE Enterprise Agents are superior in event capture reliability, ease of installation and use, and price, compared to 3rd party SIEM agents.

Tapping the Opportunity:  SNARE Alliance has been working with Intersect Alliance and North American VARs, including Optiv, Insight, CNI, SHI, Zones, LiquidPC/CDW and other resellers to support prospective customer software trials, resellers’ price quotes and margins, integration with 3rd party SIEM Servers and ongoing first level support to end users on the VAR’s behalf.   By partnering with SNARE Alliance, VARs can tap this growing market opportunity without a significant investment in time and technical resources.  Enterprise customers sold through the channel include:  AEP, ADP, AT&T, Harris, Ross Stores, State of Florida AST, TCF Bank, Vesta and others.  For Deal Registration and to request Free Trial or Price Quote, go here.

“I tend to use SNARE when customers have a lot of end points, 1,000 or more though particularly over 10K windows end points and they know they want to monitor each and every one of them. I know SNARE will report in every time, all the time, even in large scale environments. SNARE is well documented and easy to install. SNARE also does encryption from the agent to the QRadar host, which is very important for most organizations, though in particular federal customers.”
