Nuvias signs another European cyber security deal
Nuvias has been appointed as the sole pan-EMEA distributor for advanced user behaviour intelligence vendor Dtex Systems. Nuvias' Cyber Security Practice will initially focus on the UK and Benelux, with a later second stage aimed at DACH, the Nordics and France, for Dtex' insider threat solutions.
Dtex’s systems, which provide visibility and intelligence around user behaviour, gather information from endpoints. The technology uses metadata for analysis, matching user workflows to known risks, as well as utilising behavioural learning, to identify users with malicious intent and those who accidentally expose data.
To begin with, Nuvias and Dtex will create a group of 20 partners in the UK and Benelux, comprising security-focused VARs and managed security service providers (MSSPs). Nuvias will provide support with dedicated sales and pre-sales staff, partner training and other services.
Ian Kilpatrick, EVP for cyber security at Nuvias Group, said: “We are seeing companies become ever more interested in security thanks to continuing publicity on data breaches and compliance issues such as GDPR. Insider threats from malicious behaviour and bad cyber hygiene have traditionally been underrated but have always been a key element in the level of risk that companies face.
“Visibility at the endpoint is critical to solving insider threats and this is Dtex’s focus, unlike many other insider threat solutions which concentrate on the network. Dtex can provide a high level of visibility and intelligence around what users are doing as well as proactively highlighting any potential risks before they take place.”
Christy Wyatt, Dtex Systems CEO, said: “With insider threats representing more than half of all known breaches, enterprise customers today need strong analytics solutions and experienced security partners. Nuvias' experience in the security space makes them an ideal partner for Dtex and enterprise customers.”
Nuvias last week announced it was extending the number of countries in which it will support VASCO Data Security International from two to 21. VASCO provides identity, security, authentication and business productivity solutions. Also in September, Nuvias announced separate deals to be a European distributor for Juniper Networks and for software development and DevOps platform GitHub.
