Siemplify Accelerates Growth in the U.K., Sees Surging Demand for Security Operations Efficiency

Siemplify, the leading independent provider of security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR), announced accelerated growth in the U.K market, bolstered by an expanding list of customers, channel partners and senior appointments.

Siemplify has experienced a 75% growth in its U.K. customer base and doubled its number of reseller and managed security service provider (MSSP) partners over the past 12 months. The company has also strengthened its EMEA team to 20 members to meet this new demand, roughly half of whom are based in the U.K.

Siemplify has witnessed record adoption of its Security Operations Platform, and the headway in the U.K. is part of a strategic plan to expand the SOAR pioneer’s footprint in key international markets, as it reimagines the security operations center (SOC) for the future of work. Automation and orchestration have become cornerstone capabilities in the modern SOC, which seeks to free human analysts from mundane and repetitive duties so they can concentrate on higher-order tasks requiring critical thinking, while being able to work from anywhere and collaborate with anyone.

“Our success in the U.K. reflects the momentum Siemplify is experiencing as a whole, as well as our expectation for continued record growth,” said Mark McDaid, Siemplify’s U.K.-based director of channel for EMEA. “U.K. enterprises and service providers are demanding greater efficiency and effectiveness for their security operations teams, especially during a time when more staff than ever is working remotely. Our goal is to continue to invest heavily in the U.K. while replicating our success across the EMEA market.”

Among the key drivers for Siemplify’s overall market share growth is a recently announced relationship between Siemplify and Check Point Software Technologies, in which Siemplify has become the go-to SOAR offering for all Check Point partners, as well as for Check Point customers embarking on SOAR projects. This alliance has now taken full shape in the U.K.

Thwarted by a growing attack surface that requires an abundance of disparate security tools initiating overwhelming numbers of alerts -- and a worsening security skills shortages in which 90% of U.K. CIOs and senior IT leaders report
