Exclusive Networks UK announced a commitment from leading cloud security vendor Netskope on a new value-added sole distribution contract. The deal will support sharply rising enterprise demand for Netskope’s market-leading Security Cloud, with Exclusive Networks growing the Netskope partner base and delivering dedicated in-country expertise along with a wealth of value-creation services.
Since 44 percent of security threats now come from cloud applications and services, and more than half of DLP violations are cloud related. Netskope was built within the cloud to address the needs of a world in which cloud is pervasive and security needs to follow data wherever it goes. The Netskope Security Cloud provides visibility, and real-time data and threat protection when accessing cloud services, websites and private apps from anywhere, on any device.
Exclusive Networks, Regional Director, UK&I Graham Jones said: “Gartner recently praised Netskope for its complete security platform that includes Next-Gen SWG, a combination of Secure Web Gateway, Cloud DLP and CASB, and Zero Trust Private Access. It’s a departure for enterprises tired of piecing together disparate elements of a cloud-based security architecture, and offers partners the ability to address a wide variety of security use cases by meeting the needs of security teams, network teams and application-specific implementations. We’re excited, and not just about the technology; Netskope has made the right investments and the timing is now ideal to optimise the current channel opportunities for cloud security.”
Netskope VP & GM, EMEA Andre Stewart, said that Netskope’s growing set of cloud solutions, that cover a TAM of $20 billion allows the channel to invest in a solution that can help secure their customers through a three to five year digital programme.
The true opportunity, apparently, is not just reselling Netskope but the continuous supporting implementation and consultancy services that customers need as they transform their security to deal with the ever rising tide of data that is moving to the cloud. Exclusive Networks “gets it” and has made significant investments in the skills and resources to address this space.“I like the way Exclusive Networks understands digital transformation, security and the unceasing shift to the cloud. We are looking to Exclusive with their wide partner base and proactive marketing as a catalyst for new opportunities!”
