Hexis Cyber Solutions takes aim at UK channel
Collaboration will meet enterprise demand for stronger cyber defence with integrated detection and automated incident response
Hexis Cyber Solutions (Hexis), a wholly-owned subsidiary of The KEYW Holding Corporation (Nasdaq: KEYW), today announced it has entered into a partnership with Exclusive Networks, a value added distributor of cybersecurity solutions operating across EMEA and into Asia Pacific. The collaboration will meet demand from mid-market and large enterprises that are increasingly pursuing integrated detection and automated response solutions that provide stronger protection against advanced cyber attacks.
“In an evolving threat landscape, the nature of cyber attacks is continuous,”
explained Bernard Girbal, vice president of channel, EMEA, Hexis Cyber Solutions.
“As a result, threat detection, verification, and response also need to be continuous. Traditional signature-based solutions are no longer enough, which is driving organisations to adopt next generation threat protection solutions. By using an integrated platform to monitor endpoints and the network, it is possible to identify incidents and take action to remove threats in an automated way, before sensitive information is compromised.”
Through the partnership, which will initially commence in the UK, Exclusive Networks will operate as a distributor in the UK region for Hexis Cyber Solutions and will recruit resellers for HawkEye G, Hexis’ flagship cybersecurity solution. HawkEye G integrates behaviour-based detection, threat verification, and flexible, policy-based automated response capabilities.
With Hexis products as the latest additions to Exclusive Network’s offering from their NewTech division, Hexis will benefit from a significant launch of Hexis products across Exclusive Network’s existing customer base. This will enable rapid recruitment and training of channel partners, as well as increase targeted resources, altogether ultimately driving high-value market opportunities for Hexis in enterprise security across the UK and EMEA.
“Improved automation, control and visibility are highly pertinent to today’s enterprise security challenges, leading channel partners to seek out robust solutions for complex data environments in an evolving threat landscape,”
said Graham Jones, UK country manager at Exclusive Networks.
“We’re in the forefront of margin-rich opportunities that capitalise on disruptive technologies, and look forward to introducing HawkEye G to relevant partners and markets.”
“Exclusive Networks has extremely strong experience in introducing new vendors to the market and developing their presence via initiatives such as Cyber Attack Remediation & Mitigation (CARM),”
“As an early-stage company with plans to operate a 100 per cent channel model, this is very important to us. Our approach integrates with the evolution of Exclusive’s entire CARM concept and we’re confident that its significant cybersecurity experience will enable us to achieve scale as the market increasingly looks towards integrated approaches to cyber defence.”
