emt Distribution and BlackBerry to strengthen cybersecurity in Australia and New Zealand

Agreement gives more organisations and resellers access to BlackBerry’s AI-driven, prevention-first cybersecurity solutions and managed (XDR) services

Last updated:

Cybersecurity specialist, emt Distribution, has signed a distribution agreement with BlackBerry that will enable wider availability of BlackBerry cybersecurity solutions and services for organisations and reseller partners in Australia and New Zealand.

The new partnership brings together emt’s extensive network of channel partners, MSPs and MSSPs and BlackBerry’s suite of intelligent, prevention-first cybersecurity solutions powered by Cylance AI. 

Under the agreement, emt Distribution will offer the full BlackBerry Cyber Suite, including CylancePROTECT, CylanceOPTICS and CylanceGUARD, a 24/7 managed Extended Detection and Response (XDR) service. emt’s technical engineers will be fully trained and certified by BlackBerry, enabling the distributor to deliver expert and specialised support in Australia and New Zealand.

In addition, CylanceGUARD’s XDR capability helps to address cyber-skills shortages faced by many organisations today. It offers access to trained threat prevention experts and BlackBerry’s suite of AI-enabled cybersecurity tools on a subscription-based model, saving time and resources for businesses with lean or non-existent in-house security teams.

“BlackBerry’s intelligent cybersecurity solutions and services can address the multi-layer needs of large companies and easy-to-manage cybersecurity for small and medium enterprises,” said Shane Mahney, Senior Sales Manager for emt Distribution, a rhipe company.

“Partners like VARs, MSPs, MSSPs and SIs can grow their advanced cybersecurity businesses and services revenues, helping organisations save valuable time and resources.”

Richard Rundle, Group Executive, emt Distribution added:

“As organisations grapple with heightened cyber threats against data, end-points and infrastructure, traditional signature-based solutions struggle to address the scale of vulnerabilities and severity of attacks,”

“By expanding our offering with BlackBerry’s intelligent, AI-powered solutions and external security teams, we can further help customers of any size improve their security posture with a prevention-first approach.”
