Exclusive Networks UK has signed a deal with cloud security vendor Netskope on a new value-added sole distribution contract. The deal will support sharply rising enterprise demand for Netskope’s Security Cloud, with Exclusive Networks growing the Netskope partner base and delivering dedicated in-country expertise.
44% of security threats now come from cloud applications and services, and more than 50% 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 unrivalled visibility, and real-time data and threat protection when accessing cloud services, websites and private apps from anywhere, on any device.
“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,” said Graham Jones, Regional Director, UK&I at Exclusive Networks. “It’s a compelling 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.”
The compelling nature of Netskope’s technology vision is demonstrated by the growing customer base within UK enterprises over the last 6-12 months, while its high growth ambitions and strong delivery capabilities are underlined by a recent $340m investment injection led by Sequoia Capital, bringing the total raised by the firm to approximately $740m.
“Netskope’s growing set of cloud solutions, that cover a TAM of $20bn allows the channel to invest in one solution that can help secure their customers through a 3-5 year digital transformation journey. The true opportunity 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,” said Andre Stewart, VP & GM, EMEA at Netskope. “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!”
