Cybersecurity value-added distributor Exclusive Networks has been chosen by Lookout to play a pivotal role in its enterprise market growth. Lookout’s decision to partner with Exclusive Networks reflects high ambitions for penetrating enterprise security markets across EMEA.
“Lookout is a very exciting security vendor because of its powerful big data analytics technology based on machine intelligence, and the credibility it has already amassed with the biggest mobile operators in the world,” said Barrie Desmond, COO at Exclusive Group. “The Lookout solution itself is perfectly suited to the channel. It’s extremely flexible, integrates seamlessly into any environment, and is the perfect complement to many other solutions in our Exclusive Networks portfolio.”
Initially focused on an intensive campaign of reseller recruitment, Exclusive will be focused on driving opportunities for Lookout’s SaaS solution for the enterprise: Lookout Mobile Threat Protection. The solution improves upon traditional signature and behavioural analysis based solutions by leveraging big data analytics; harnessing a gigantic cloud dataset of virtually all the mobile code in the world and applying machine intelligence to accurately predict threats.
“We know that mobile threats are growing in scale and complexity, presenting increased risks to enterprises that can only be addressed by predicting attacks before they strike. Now with Lookout’s security capabilities, channel partners can help their customers embrace mobility while protecting these devices and company data,” said Gert-Jan Schenk, VP of EMEA at Lookout. “Exclusive’s track record and focus on cybersecurity made them a logical ally in our plans for key EMEA markets, and we look forward to benefiting from their relationships and expertise.”
