This partnership is a best-in-breed expansion strategy for Ridge Security and CiELO, further extending RidgeBot™’s global reach, and adding to CiELO’s robust services in India.

Santa Clara, CARidge Security, cutting-edge penetration testing bellwether announces distribution agreement with CiELO, a Value-added Distributor for IT services and security solutions, in order to accelerate its flagship product RidgeBot™’s growing, global expansion strategy.

The pandemic has accelerated the digital transformation that organizations had already embarked upon, and as it has shifted the IT workforce to working from home remotely, the byproduct has been that it has also accelerated the attack surface potential in all networks and IT assets. Due to this, and the growing need for cyber resiliency, Ridge Security has seen rapidly growing interest in automated pen test systems around the globe. In response, Ridge Security has been expanding its global distribution sales network. The partnership with CiELO illustrates the joint commitment to the Indian market and Middle East region.

As a Value-Added Distributor, CiELO is in an ideal position to leverage and add RidgeBot™’s differentiated pen testing solution to its portfolio and deliver the solution and services through its growing partner ecosystem in India.

“Security teams are looking for automation to improve efficiency and effectiveness against an increasingly accelerated digital IT landscape. Organizations are feeling the stress of securing their networks and critical assets and are overwhelmed, since even a minor delta in the network can create a new vulnerability. RidgeBot™ delivers fully automated security validation that ethically hacks systems to verify and address vulnerabilities,” said Ning Mo, CEO of Ridge Security.  

“Today, automated, ethical AI-driven security validation is the future of penetration testing, given that hackers are already maliciously using AI-driven tools to attack assets. We believe that RidgeBot™’s underlining security platform is well positioned to address Indian cyber resiliency requirements and look forward to a mutually successful partnership,” said Sanket Deshpande, Managing Director of CiELO Technologies.
