The B2B SaaS solution ensures secure employee access to critical corporate resources whether these resources are located on-premises or in the cloud.

Perimeter 81 co-founder and CPO Sagi Gidali says, "With the rapid rise of telecommuting, personal work devices, and cloud-based services, Perimeter 81's simplified, software-defined and user-centric approach to network security is a must for today's modern workforce.

"We want to help as many businesses as possible more easily and efficiently secure their ever-expanding corporate networks and we're confident that with Ingram Micro's unparalleled reach and vast expertise in cloud-delivered services, we will greatly advance our efforts to achieve this goal,” says Gidali.

The Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace is made up of buyers, sellers, and solutions. It allows channel partners and professionals to purchase, provision, manage and invoice.

It enables partners to manage the complete end-customer subscription lifecycle from an automated platform that is provided and supported by Ingram Micro.

Ingram Micro vice president of strategy and corporate development Michael Kenny says, “Our customers are eager to adopt more manageable and cloud-compatible software security solutions and Perimeter 81 meets this growing demand.

Kenny says, “We are excited to broaden the portfolio of cloud services by adding Perimeter 81 to our Cloud Marketplace, which is now being used by more than 55,000 technology partners around the world to manage nearly four million fully-automated seats.

Perimeter 81's distribution agreement with Ingram Micro enables resellers to partake in the critical cybersecurity market with software-defined Security as a Service solutions.
