Alsid partners with Exclusive Networks to increase Active Directory security
Paris, 28 May 2019 ‐ Cybersecurity software provider Alsid today announced a partnership with Exclusive Networks, a global distributor of cybersecurity and cloud solutions.
Starting in France, Exclusive Networks will offer Alsid’s cloud solution that helps companies protect against attacks targeted on the Active Directory (AD). As a central part of all enterprise information systems, ADs are now the primary target for large‐scale attacks. Alsid’s solution strengthens infrastructures and detects attacks in real time, stopping them from spreading across a network.
“AD security is an untapped commercial opportunity for partners and resellers. This is the first time we partner with a global distributor, and by teaming up with Exclusive Networks we will benefit from the expertise and network of a leading reseller in order to better support our customers. This strategic partnership demonstrates our commitment to the channel and we will expand it to other countries in the near future”, said Emmanuel Gras, CEO and co‐founder of Alsid.
“For too long, Active Directory has been a neglected yet absolutely crucial part of any cybersecurity infrastructure. Alsid therefore is the perfect fit for us as the company’s unrivalled expertise will help us solidify and expand our offering to customers. We are excited to partner with such a fast‐growing cybersecurity company which we think will become highly successful globally over the next years”, says David Clarys, BU Manager at Exclusive Networks France.
In April, Alsid raised the record sum of €13 million in any Series A cybersecurity funding round, to continue and accelerate its growth in Europe, Asia and the US. The company was founded in 2016 and achieved more than 500% growth in 2018, doubled its client portfolio and has earned the trust and loyalty of a large number of customers such as Sanofi and Sodexo Unibail‐Rodamco.
Founded by cybersecurity experts, Alsid designs pragmatic solutions to effectively combat attack scenarios targeting the core of enterprise information systems. Aware of the ever evolving threat environment, Alsid designed the first proactive product to ensure Active Directory security by identifying vulnerabilities before an attacker can exploit them. Today, Alsid protects more than 3 million users across numerous countries and helps large companies such as Orange, Airbus Helicopters, Sanofi, VINCI Energies or Lagardère to protect against the most advanced targeted cyber attacks.
