Alsid Partners with Exclusive Networks for Southern Europe Distribution Deal
Paris, September 10th, 2020 – Leading Active Directory security software provider Alsid has announced a new partnership in Southern Europe with Exclusive Networks, value added distributor (VAD) and global specialist in IT security and cloud solutions.
Exclusive Networks will offer Alsid’s cloud solution across Spain and Italy to help companies protect against attacks targeting the Active Directory (AD). As a central part of all enterprise information systems, ADs are now the primary target for large-scale attacks. The Alsid for Active Directory solution strengthens infrastructures and detects attacks in real time, stopping them from spreading across a network. Exclusive Networks has offered Alsid’s cloud solutions in France since May 2019.
Alsid for Active Directory is a cloud-based product that doesn’t require privileges over the AD when monitoring and securing Active Directory infrastructures in real-time. It provides users with in-context data that is accurate, useful and relevant to continually adapting and improving AD security. The Active Directory (AD) is located at the heart of the IT estate of large enterprises and is responsible for authorising users, permissions and applications throughout an organisation. Successfully breaching the Active Directory can s gives an attacker ‘the keys to the castle’, since they are then able to move freely throughout the company’s IT infrastructure.
Luca Marinelli, CEO and General Manager of Exclusive Networks comments: “The Active Directory has been a neglected part of enterprise IT for too long, but it is absolutely critical to any IT security infrastructure. With Alsid we expand our cybersecurity offering with a perfect solution to address and prevent attacks on the AD. We believe this represents an interesting opportunity for our resellers to protect their customers’ networks with increasingly specific and advanced solutions. We are ready to support the development in the Italian market of this French concept that Exclusive Networks is already happy to offer in other countries, with fantastic results“.
Jesús Barrajón, Alsid’s country manager for Iberia, highlighted that “Alsid is here to change the methods of defence, contributing to a proactive security strategy, automated and in real time, which allows enterprises to detect security gaps and provides guidance to prevent and remedy threats before an attack occurs“.
Alberto Pérez, head of business development at Exclusive Network, added that “Alsid allows enterprises to detect and respond to attacks in real time, correcting weaknesses before they are exploited by hackers, and this undoubtedly represents an important opportunity for the distribution channel through. We expect Alsid will have a great impact in our market“.
Johann Demangeot, VP of Sales, Southern EMEA at Alsid says: “By partnering with Exclusive Networks, we will benefit from the expertise and reseller network of a leading distributor like Exclusive Networks to better support our customers. With this new step, we continue to pursue our goal of further expansion on an international scale“.
