Bit9 hands Exclusive Networks UK distribution rights

Endpoint and server security vendor Bit9 selects value added distie Exclusive Networks to help grow its channel mindshare in the UK

Endpoint and server security specialist Bit9 has moved to implement a two tier channel strategy with the selection of VAD Exclusive Networks to become its sole distie partner in the UK.

Bit9’s trust-based approach detects and stops advanced threats, providing an additional layer of security and enabling real-time visibility across all customer end-points.

The firm hopes its cross-platform capabilities, coupled with integration with other Exclusive vendors such as FireEye and Palo Alto, will give partners a more distinctive offering to take to market, helping customers address concerns around advanced threats, zero-day attacks and malware, among other things.

Bit9 EMEA director Tony Shadrake said that with the UK forming a key plank in its European strategy, the firm had taken its time in selecting the right strategic distribution partner.

Exclusive filled that gap, he said, due to its “pedigree and expertise in building successful channels for innovative and disruptive technologies.”

Exclusive’s Graham Jones, joint UK country manager, added: “As cyber threats continue to grow exponentially, enterprises need a solution that continually monitors the myriad of endpoints and servers across the organisation. The Bit9 solution gives resellers the opportunity to address this critical and growing need.”
