WESTBOROUGH, Mass.--(Courion Corporation, the leader in risk-driven identity and access management (IAM), today announced it has entered into a joint go-to-market agreement with Paramount Computer Systems, the United Arab Emirates’ leading provider of enterprise security technology and services.)--
“We look forward to introducing the Access Risk Management Suite to more of our prospects and customers. We’re confident they will seize new opportunities for better identifying, managing and settling their access risk.”
Paramount will sell the Courion Access Risk Management Suite to customers in all industries who want to improve security operations and leverage access intelligence to streamline governance and better manage access risk.
The partnership, which involves dedicated Courion personnel in Paramount’s offices, has already produced its first engagement at a global transportation company headquartered in Dubai. Several other large UAE organizations are in discussion with Paramount and Courion about risk-driven IAM.
“Courion’s IAM suite is highly regarded here for good reason,” said Paramount CEO Premchand Kurup. “We look forward to introducing the Access Risk Management Suite to more of our prospects and customers. We’re confident they will seize new opportunities for better identifying, managing and settling their access risk.”
Paramount is ninth on the UAE list of Top 100 SMEs and was recently awarded the region’s highest honor for business performance excellence, the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Business Award. In business since 1992, Paramount operates offices throughout the region and has successful implementations in high-profile companies throughout the Middle East.
“Paramount has had extraordinary success satisfying and retaining customers,” said Marc Lee, Courion’s director of EMEA. “Our first implementation will be a flagship account for the area and a beacon for enterprises looking for risk-driven IAM solutions in the Middle East.”
Meanwhile, Courion’s relationship with Paramount is a model for the rest of the world. “Our strategy is to invest in partners that can deliver the risk-driven IAM solutions the market is demanding and the business value customers are seeking,” said Mike Parise, Courion’s vice president of global alliances. “Rather than establishing a direct presense in every geography or segment, we’ll often choose to invest in and enable go-to-market alliances that make it easy for partners like Paramount to work with us and grow their revenue.”
