Melbourne-based specialty distributor Wavelink has announced it has added a security operations (SecOps) service to its solutions portfolio.

The service includes a security information and event management (SIEM)-as-a-Service offering that Wavelink said will help expand its reach to existing and new partners in Australia and New Zealand.  

The SIEM service will be achieved by delivering Lumenir through Wavelink’s partnership with Queensland-based networking and security firm Laminar.

Through this partnership, Wavelink will purchase Lumenir SIEM-as-a-Service offerings from Laminar, which will then execute the services on Wavelink’s behalf, acting as a service provider. 

“Wavelink is committed to delivering advanced security options to its partners, which are crucial for organisations looking to strengthen their cybersecurity frameworks and mitigate the ever-increasing security risks of the rapidly evolving threat landscape,” said Ilan Rubin, CEO of Wavelink.

“Integrating advanced SIEM-as-a-Service into its offerings lets Wavelink’s partners provide their customers with real-time monitoring and analysis of security alerts generated by their network hardware and applications, facilitating quicker identification of potential security threats.”

“In addition to reducing the risk of significant breaches, their customers will also benefit from a more robust security posture that can adapt to the complexities of modern cybersecurity threats.” 

Wavelink said the portfolio expansion is designed to help partners respond to the evolving security challenges faced by modern businesses and signifies its dedication to innovation and excellence in cybersecurity.  

“Wavelink is strengthening its security offerings through continual growth and expansion of its services via strategic partnerships,” Rubin said.

“By partnering with leading vendors and service providers, Wavelink can offer its partners a competitive edge in the security market. SIEM is just the start of new services that Wavelink is looking to bring to its partners to enhance their market position and fuel their growth.” 

The Wavelink and Lumenir by Laminar partnership will officially launch with a series of roadshows across Australia in collaboration Fortinet.

Event attendees can engage directly with Wavelink, Laminar, and Fortinet to see the expanded security solutions now available through Wavelink firsthand.
