Press Release: CMS Distribution announces deal with CrowdStrike to become Irish distributor

Kiltimagh, Co. Mayo, Ireland, Monday 9th November 2020: Today, CMS Distribution announced it has signed a distribution agreement with CrowdStrike Inc., a leader in cloud-delivered endpoint and workload protection. This partnership will strengthen CMS Distribution’s cybersecurity portfolio and expand CrowdStrike’s presence and reach in the Irish market.

CMS Distribution will offer the full portfolio of the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform solutions including Falcon Prevent™ and Falcon Insight™, to provide real-time visibility and protection across organisations to better detect and prevent attacks. The cloud-native Falcon platform has revolutionised the way organisations stop breaches by unifying key endpoint security capabilities such as next-generation anti-virus (NGAV), endpoint detection and response (EDR), managed threat hunting, IT hygiene and threat intelligence, all delivered through a single, intelligent, lightweight agent. Falcon’s innovative technology allows organisations to quickly and easily deploy the platform at scale to secure workloads across environments running on a variety of endpoints on or off the network. CrowdStrike has a broad set of sophisticated and easy-to-use APIs to support CMS customers’ integrations and produce immediate time to value with no added cost, friction or complexity.

Huw Jones, Chief Business Officer at CMS Distribution, commented “This partnership is an excellent fit for both parties. CrowdStrike is a leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection and their offerings will enable our customers across all industries to realise the benefits of cybersecurity and, in particular, endpoint protection. CMS has a wealth of experience in the cybersecurity market and we are really looking forward to growing CrowdStrike’s and our business with this partnership.”

CrowdStrike is excited to partner with industry expert CMS to bring the Falcon platform to the Irish market,” said Jonathan King, Director, Northern European Alliances, CrowdStrike. “Security teams are looking to protect their organisations from financial and reputational ruin by strengthening their security posture against the stealthy and sophisticated tactics, techniques and procedures of today’s threat actors.   The cloud-native CrowdStrike Falcon platform advances CMS product offerings to provide customers industry-leading endpoint protection, across all workload environments, to spot and stop persistent cyber threats in their tracks.”

This partnership also further strengthens CMS Distribution’s position as a distributor and demonstrates its commitment to onboarding Tier 1 vendors in the global cybersecurity space.
