RiskIQ Exec Touts Digital Threat Management Opportunity For Partners

San Francisco-based RiskIQ has a suite of security offerings focused on stopping threats coming from web, social and mobile.

These external threats — which include ransomware, phishing, malvertising and social impersonation — are increasing as companies invest heavily in going digital. The company's digital threat management platform is aimed at helping companies to understand digital threats, reduce their digital attack surface, identify direct attacks and mitigate threats.

"Most channel partners don't have a full digital threat management solution in their portfolio," said Scott Gordon, chief marketing officer at RiskIQ.

RiskIQ plans to roll out updates to its channel program in late April with enhancements including increased profit margins for partners and a new partner portal featuring simplified deal registration, Gordon said.

In addition, partners for the first time will be enable to distribute a free version of RiskIQ's Software-as-a-Service, RiskIQ Community Edition, to their customers, he said. The RiskIQ Community Edition debuted in mid-February.

Founded in 2009, RiskIQ has 150 employees and is backed by $65.5 million in funding, from investors including Summit Partners, Battery Ventures and Georgian Partners.
