Arctic Wolf Confirms European SOC, MDR Security Partner Plans
North America’s Arctic Wolf has expanded its various channel-focused security services and operations to EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa).
Key moves, according to Arctic Wolf, include:
- establishing a European headquarters in the United Kingdom;
- opening the company’s first European security operations center (SOC) in Germany later this year;
- focusing on a growing presence in the Nordics and the Benelux regions; and
- naming Clare Loveridge as vice president and general manager of EMEA. Loveridge previously held key posts at Komprise, ExaGrid, Nimble Storage and EMC.
Arctic Wolf Funding History, Cybersecurity Partner Strategy
The EMEA expansion comes after Arctic Wolf raised $200 million at a $1.3 billion valuation in October 2020. Rumors surfaced in early June 2021 that the company was seeking another venture capital funding round at a potential $4 billion valuation. Arctic Wolf did not comment on that rumor.
Arctic Wolf, backed by a multi-tier partner program, now works with more than 650 solutions providers worldwide, the company says. Senior VP of Global Channels Bob Skelley is driving the global partner effort.
The Arctic Wolf cloud-native platform supports Managed Detection and Response (MDR), Managed Risk, Managed Cloud Monitoring, and Managed Security Awareness, the company says.
