As the value-added distributor for next-generation cybersecurity company Proofpoint in the region, Exclusive Networks is gearing up to complement the vendor’s long standing position in the market of securing beyond the bounds of traditional network perimeters and connected endpoints.

Proofpoint is enhancing its channel and go-to-market strategy to create “innovative cybersecurity solutions for an ever-increasing addressable market”.

Exclusive Networks is preparing to work with Proofpoint  by offering Proofpoint solutions with its highly successful Cyber Attack Remediation & Mitigation (CARM) framework and kick-off a series of targeted initiatives designed to educate new partners.

The vendor and VAD are re-enforcing the existing relationship, with the latter paving way to capitalise on the growth opportunities presented by an expanded Proofpoint cybersecurity product portfolio across the Middle East, now incorporating SMB-aligned solutions, as well as leading targeted attack protection offerings. This expansion complements the vendor’s long-standing market leadership in secure email gateways.

“Exclusive Networks Middle East is excited to continue the success that we have witnessed across our European counterparts. Our channel partners can now benefit from Proofpoint’s extensive portfolio offering a market leading Secure Email Gateway, Email Fraud Defense, Digital Risk Management, SaaS Protection and Advanced Threat Protection,” said Oliver Downs, Alliances Manager, Exclusive Networks ME. “We now have the opportunity to educate the market on the evolving landscape of advanced threats and cloud adoption. Furthermore, the region is witnessing an enormous adoption of Microsoft Office 365, where the need to safeguard users against advanced threats, empower insight and keep users connected during the events of downtime is crucial. Proofpoint is a key to ensure that this migration and new service layer is protected.”

“As we continue to see increasing demand from Middle East businesses for innovative, effective cybersecurity solutions, expanding our established partnership with Exclusive Networks across the MEA region is imperative,” said Nik Churchley, Director, EMEA Channels for Proofpoint. “Email continues to be the number one threat vector used by cybercriminals. This relationship will allow Exclusive Networks to offer our advanced email protection offering, providing EMEA organisations with best-in-class multi-layered defence against email fraud, ransomware, advanced malware, bulk mail and email downtime.”
