Proofpoint, Exclusive Networks extend partnership


Exclusive Networks, a regional Value Added Distributor (VAD) for Proofpoint, is preparing to offer Proofpoint solutions with its Cyber Attack Remediation & Mitigation (CARM) framework and kick-off a series of targeted initiatives designed to educate new partners.

The VAD will complement the vendor’s long standing position in the market of securing beyond the bounds of traditional network perimeters and connected endpoints.

Cyber security company, Proofpoint is also enhancing its channel and go-to-market strategy to create cybersecurity solutions for an ever-increasing addressable market. The vendor and VAD are re-enforcing the existing relationship, with the latter paving way to capitalize on the growth opportunities presented by an expanded Proofpoint cybersecurity product portfolio across the Middle East.

Oliver Downs, Alliances Manager at Exclusive Networks ME, said, “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. 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.”
