An IT match made in… Belgium! Aikido Security, a SaaS startup from Ghent, will provide application security to The Cronos Group, an e-business integrator headquartered in Kontich, with over 5,000 clients across their 570+ companies in the Benelux region. This strategic partnership is set to fortify The Cronos Group’s security posture and Aikido Security’s influence in the cybersecurity industry.
Stronger security posture with Aikido
The Cronos Group is now a new Aikido client. In this context, The Cronos Group is in the process of implementing Aikido’s security solutions across many of its software development companies. Why is this useful for The Cronos Group? Not only does it help establish a stronger security posture for each company in its network, but it also creates another great advantage. Aikido pulls it all together for Cronos, which will gain a more insightful and standardized global overview of the security posture of these companies than ever before.
Beyond that, Aikido entrusts The Cronos Group to become a true partner as well. In this context, Cronos will be able to provide Aikido to its customers so they, too, have the opportunity to benefit from Aikido’s services. On top of that, Cronos and Aikido actively work together to further improve the product features.
Aikido’s unique set of security tools and ability to reduce false positives will deliver efficiency to the development teams in The Cronos Group’s network of companies and customers. This means less disruption from unnecessary alerts leading to more focus on writing code. The Cronos Group aims to help companies find creative, high-quality, and profitable ways to make the most of potential new technologies. Therefore, this partnership aligns perfectly with its mission.
Aikido pulls it all together in a dedicated “Security Partner Portal”. Through this partner portal, The Cronos Group is able to gain a more insightful and standardized global overview of the security posture of their companies than ever before.
