emt Distribution also offers the Acunetix web vulnerability scanning solution designed to meet the needs of small and medium businesses (SMBs).

emt will now offer the full range of Netsparker and Acunetix solutions to channel partners, MSPs and MSSPs, the company states.

More about Netsparker

Netsparker is designed so that businesses can fully automate all their web security processes including automatic vulnerability assessment, and automatic discovery and protection of web assets so they can avoid resource-intensive manual processes.

With Netsparker reports, businesses can also meet their compliance requirements, the company states.

Netsparker delivers automatic verification of vulnerabilities. Its Proof-Based Scanning technology safely exploits any vulnerabilities found, generating a proof-of-exploit or proof-of-concept to rule out false positives.

Users do not have to manually verify findings and can immediately proceed with the fixing of security flaws.

Netsparker scans any type of web application, provides actionable results, and integrates with company workflow tools to close the loop between IT and developers.

Its built-in team management and vulnerability management features enable businesses to create roles, assign issues, overview the remediation process, and retest after completion.

The expanded distribution agreement

Under the expanded distribution agreement, emt Distribution will invest additional on-the-ground support and educational resources for both Netsparker and Acunetix in the region, the company states.

This will see emt Distribution provide qualifying resellers with proof-of-concept keys, easy access to product trials, and assistance with customer demonstrations, all within a 24 hour turnaround time, according to the company.

emt Distribution general manager Shane Mahney says, “emt Distribution is delighted to add Netsparker to our web vulnerability scanning and dynamic application security testing portfolio.

"Our channel partners will be able to deliver even higher levels of accuracy and automation for their enterprise customers.

"It will give them a high-end alternative to Acunetix, which has proved very successful in meeting the security needs of web application developers, development operations teams and SMBs."

Invicti Security, owner of the Netsparker and Acunetix brands, VP of global channel development Kevin Abela says, “We are excited to be working with emt Distribution to expand our presence in Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific region.

"With cyber security risks continually on the rise, we want to ensure the best possible reach and support to make our customers web applications as secure as possible.
